Great layout, linksy with many deep fairway bunkers, water and, usually, plenty of wind.

Greens softer and slower than in the past but so are everybody else's.

The course was in good condition, we had a little breeze which kept the temperature more bearable and defended the course. The greens were soft and little bumpy - my only complaint, I had about 3 putts knocked off my line that were probably going in the hole.

Its not in the conditions that when American golf managed it a couple years ago, but it was also twice the price on a Friday, $31 vs $62 then...Great staff, great bar/lunch bfast area. I'll go back no problem..Very challenging, and can get windy. you'll go thru a sleeve of balls if you're a bogey player..

Pros: Course is generally always in excellent condition. 2 sided grass driving range.

Cons: Greens were thicker then normal and played slow but I think they did that to prevent them burning as it was near or over 100 degrees.

Was disappointed with the condition of the bunkers, both fairway but especially greenside. More sand is NEEDED and they weren't groomed. Large pebbles were found, some were very wet (poor watering layout).

This is a great course, but the bunkers need to be maintained OR just take out the fairway bunkers and focus maintenance on the greenside bunkers (buy sand and condition them often).

Played on a breezy Spring day. Course is in great shape. The rough is very lush due to rainy spring. Fairways and gteens are great. Even though the course has a lot of water, there are no forced carries over water. The only fault was inconsistency in bunkers. Some were hard with little sand, some were filled with lots of fluffy sand.

Great layout, great greens, very good value.
