I have played this course many times and really like a lot of things about it, however there is a definite problem with the fairways, they are being overtaken by a weed type grass and this has been happening for a few years now and it won't be long before it's all that way unless they doe something about it.

It's a nice challenge and everything else about the course is great, the bunkers, tee blocks and sand traps.

I will play it again but I don't know for how long if no attention is paid to their fairway issues.

This course is always in excellent shape. Today the greens were very quick. Our foursome played in just under 3 1/2 hours with some delays with the group in front of us. Always worth the money.

The fairways are wide open. It is in great shape. The greens were fairly fast & can be difficult to read.
