Was 2nd group out on a sunny Sunday morning. No practice area available in the morning, so went out cold. Course consists of 3 9-hole tracks, with between 1-3 Par 5s per 9 and 3 Par 3s.

Tee boxes were in good (not great) shape, some tapering in certain areas but no real issues of which to speak. Fairways and rough are green with a few areas needing more coverage but this mostly a green course throughout. Because of that, there is quite a bit of puddling along the cart paths, but not too bad in the fairways. Greenside bunkers in terrific shape, plenty of soft sand from which to hit, one fairway bunker I was in had some standing water and mud in it.

Greens were moderately fast, and had more break than most public courses, which was a nice change of pace. Some bumps, some ball marks, but overall ran true.

Excellent customer service throughout. 3.5 hour PoP, could have been faster but the ability of the three players I was with were the only thing that kept us from a 3 hour round.

Plenty of parking and welcomed by attendant who took our bags and had a cart ready after paying for our round. Pace of play was good, conditions of course were great with plenty of challenging water on the front nine. Although we didn't have anything from the restaurant the menu looked delicious and fair pricing. Summer specials are also available. We look forward to another round!! Great fun for our first time.

First time playing the course and I enjoyed it. Played the King and the Hawk combination, preferred the King 9, great par 3's. Conditions were very good with only complaint was that they are over watering and the course was wet in places. Greens were very good. Fun course not overly long but still fairly challenging with trees in play on most holes.

The course was gorgeous. The whole course was in great condition. There was a decent amount of slope on the greens due to where the pin locations. There are some great holes with water hazards that make some of the holes challenging if you have not played the course before. It was a blast to play for a great price.

Plays like a park style course although surrounded by homes. However, there's still plenty of room for some off target shots without flying the ball into back yards. Hawk requires a bit more course management for long hitters but King will better accommodate them. Good pace of play and staff. I will be back.

Played a round with my golfing buddy and this was the first time we have played this course. We learned quickly that hitting the ball straight was more important than going for distance. The weather did get a little toasty but still very enjoyable plenty of drinking water available through out the course. We would play this course again.
