This is a lovely course; HOWEVER, very slow play. This was our second time here. The first time was so slow, we emailed management. They gave us this round free and promised play would be better this time. FREE is what the round was worth! 2 hours and 40 minutes to play the front and this was AFTER we called the clubhouse and they sent a ranger out. Too bad, really like the course but definitely will not go back. They need to send management to Pilgrim's Run or St. Ives to see how a golf course should be run!!!! On the other hand, if what you want is a local course where you can just sit and visit, drink a beer, and then hit a golf ball once in awhile, this is your course!

We experienced this today, TUESDAY. So many older players, and SOOOO slow. Took 2 hours to play 5 holes. Terrible.

Today was this first time I golf here but will not be my last! The fairways and greens are great and the sand in the traps is very good. The views you get at this course is something special. The staff are very friendly. Can't wait until the next I play their.

Beautiful course with white fencing and water falls. They have taken advantage of the quarry with interesting hole layouts. Wish they would get the second 9 completed. All good things take time I guess! Definitely recommend this course. Next time I play 18 I think I will play the white tees for the fist nine and the blue tees the second time around...should add to the experience.
