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.

Only improvement could be made in cutting the rough down next to the greens and just off the faiway... rough averaged more than 4 inches deep and was like US Open rough.. The rest of the course condition was superb....

"Walking fivesomes (two groups) at 8am on a Sunday morning? No wonder the round took over 5 1/2 hours."

Most of us teeing it up early Sunday morning do so because we have an afternoon agenda. A 4 hour round leaves us the bulk of the day remaining. 5/1/2 (being kind) hours is just too painful. We will try this track again given the course conditions, great range, and friendly staff. A Marshall or two speeding up play and limiting walking fivsomes to early afternoon tee times will keep us returning on a regular basis.

Played on a blustery, semi-rainy day, and very few other golfers out there...so pace of play was fast. Greens were HARD, slopey and fast...very difficult to hold on approaches. Its a beautiful course with lots of water hazard. Course was in great shape, except for some of the traps: I was in one which was so thin I had to hit a pitch shot rather than a true sand shot; the only other trap I was in was in good shape.

Look forward to playing this one again!

We've received a lot of requests for half-star ratings and I agree. Hope to add soon.

Played on a relatively cool and windy Friday afternoon (12:16 tee-time). First time at the course and was very impressed with the courteous staff, nice clean clubhouse, and decently supplied pro-shop. Showed up as a single and was paired with a friendly twosome with previous course experience who offered some much needed advice on the few blind tee-shots. I found the course challenging, but fair; especially with the several water hazards sporting thick vegetation along the banks. Thankfully, they're in the process of removing some of this vegetation which I feel better enhances the visual challenges these water hazards offer.

Tee boxes, fairways, bunkers and greens were in good to excellent shape for this time of year and maintenance workers were plentiful out on the course. Starter on hole one to pace groups going out and an active course marshal who we came across no less than 5 times throughout the day. Our group faced minimal delays and the marshal was very helpful in letting us know she was doing her best to move things along.

Overall I definitely recommend this course and look forward to my next round there!
