Overall course was in pretty good shape. The Otter course had a bit more verity of holes then the Fox course but enjoyed them both. Probably going though a transition change due to season change because some of the greens and fairways were a little rough Cart guy not so friendly. Starter also could have been a little more friendly. Would recommend

The course is a bit boring and there are no restrooms on "Fox" except for a portable toilet and the other nine "Otter" had no toilets. Not a big deal for men but my wife was not amused.b The course is also no longer listed on USGA therefore not able to enter my score for handicap.

Greens, fairways and rough in excellent condition, greens were firm and speedy, enjoyed by round even if I did shoot 90, some bunkers could have been raked, but if you hit straighter, this would not be a problem, my bad.

Staff very friendly, enjoyed my first round at this location of the year, will play again

This is a 27 hole course and they assign you two nines to play. I was a first time player on the course and was paired with a couple and another single that thank goodness knew the course. There are more than a few holes that his knowledge was beneficial. Although the weather is warm, this is still winter and the course has not recovered from the dormant season. Some fairways were sparse for grass to hit off of; and unfortunately too many greens are being invaded by the local "weed grass". Too many putts bounced around on it and/or were knocked off line. If I read player reviews that conditions improve I may play it again.
