Tough course if you're not playing from the fairway. Hitting off line puts you into the tall grass and chances of recovery are slim to none. Well placed bunkers add to the challenge. Nice course with a lot of wildlife. Make sure you stock up with anything you need from the pro-shop before heading out (balls) as you do not pass it again until you're done and it's a long ride!

The course is in excellent condition. I like the fairways, they are wide for most holes. Back 9 is more difficult, but it's also more fun to play.

First time playing this courae and really liked the course. It was in great shape, soft greens despite the dry weather of late. My beef is with staff. I started at 7:30am and they appeared disorganized; restaurant was not open - so no coffee! Starter was grouchy and not overly helpful. Also halfway house wasnt open at 9:30 when we came through, and we ran out of water in our cart. This is crazy. The course was full so do get why no hydration opportunities on the course. Noone informed us we should bring our own water.... Other courses have free water in coolers in the marshalls cart...nothing here. grey Silo needs to fix this; it has a big impact on the experience.
