Great course and very good value. All the holes were fair but not easy. Greens were true and all were elevated. I would like to come back later in the spring when the course grows in to regular conditions.

I've played both courses a few times both are very enjoyable very difficult playing from the back you get your butt kicked. Staff is very friendly very efficient outside guys are very polite very accommodating course could be cleaned up a little bit fairways aren’t perfect the greens are pretty good roll pretty true bunkers are in great shape definitely worth the money.

Depending upon Tee selection (gold to black) degree of difficulty is easy to difficult.

Age plays a factor on selection.

Also a starter would help.

The Lakes course does not seem long, but it is sneaky long...There are no easy par 3's and a few par 4's that are beasts...One different hole is #10(par 5) where you have to lay up on your second shot...Greens are hard and fast...I like the challenge.

Have played both courses here a number of times. Current ownership has done a great job upgrading and maintaining both and it's always great to go back. We had a perfect weather day with little traffic on the course that affected us. The Lakes course is harder than the Forest and it was in good shape today. Greens were deceptively quick.
