This course is extremely challenging. Layout challenges all aspects of your game. Course was in great condition even despite recent hot weather. Would highly recommend; however bring some extra balls. Would have enjoyed some distance markers in the driving range/lake.

Being a member of a private club the condition of a course is very important. The condition of the course was very good. Fairways and greens were in nice condition - very green, little brown areas of areas in poor condition. The greens were rolling rather slow but that's not uncommon at public courses. Good value and nice layout. Lakes and mature trees made it pretty scenic. Would recommend to others.

played as a single and once I was allowed to play through on the 2nd tee by a friendly group had a open course to play at my speed. Finished in 3 hrs. Course was in great condition and was a fun course to play on. Some of the par 4's were a little too narrow with houses on each side, but overall the right amount of balance between fun and challenging.

Beide Golfplätze, the Lakes und the Forest, sind zwei wunderbare Golfplätze. The Forste hat mehr Wald aber auch sehr viele Wasserhimdernisse. The Lakes ist offener und hat weniger Schatten. In den Seen kann man Aligatoren sehen, man sollte demnach nicht zu nahe als Wasser gehen. Läßt die Bälle im Wasser liegen, auf dem Flohmarkt gibt es 100 Stück für 5 Dollar.

Das Clubhaus hat eine sehr schöne Terrasse und das Personal ist super freundlich. Die Preise sind angemessen und wenn man Glück hat gibt es eine Special offer.

Had a great day here, got paired up with some people and got along well, which is always nice. Tees, fairways, and greens were in good shape, no complaints. Rough and other areas were a bit brown, but certainly playable.

One sorta negative thing was that a couple of the guys insisted on playing the same tees as me, which they really weren't equipped to, which forced me to move forwards. Not a lot the course can do about that, but I've seen places where on the first tee there are little placards that indicate from what tee you should play based on handicap or whatever. I think that might have helped.

Anyways, would recommend this course!

This is a course that requires you to place a shot. It's a challenging but fun course and has a nice view along the way. Pack something to eat if you're playing afternoons because the little hotdog stand isn't always there and you don't pass the clubhouse when you make the turn from 9 to 10.
