A bit of confusion at the start with several non foursomes awaiting to tee off . The starter was very helpful and let me start on the back 9 and enjoyed that with three golfers from Toronto .Ont. I then played the front side with three golfers from New Jersey . All in all an enjoyable day thanks to the staff here .

Played as a single. Said the threesome already left they had me paired up with. Slow round as I played behind a 4some playing a scramble so I waited on every shot. Didn't play through. That said the course was in great shape. The greens could have been faster but they too were in great shape. It's not the most scenic course I've played but one of the best maintained. No clubhouse yet, just a trailer with a snack shop and caned drinks. I would play it again.

There was three of us and we played the National course. Got off a bit earlier than our original 8:30am time and we finished in about 3 hours so that was fantastic.

Small greens so coming in with any long irons and sticking the green would be hard.

Only issue we had was the greens were being seeded so it was it hard to putt.

We all would play again.

Really enjoyed this course. Huge greens in excellent shape running at about 9-9.5. Rough not overseeded but course still very playable with lots of grass on the fairways. No negatives from my perspective.

This course is the centerpiece of a new housing development. The layout is imaginative and surprisingly hilly in spots. Greens are perfect! The rest of course is is in excellent condition. Amenities are not present to a significant degree because clubhouse is under construction. This is still a great experience, better than the courses at the Omni Hotel.

The course is beautiful and well maintained. Greens and fairways are fantastic but the course is way over priced. In addition, plan on spending all day there because it's a 5 hour round. I believe this issue is the tee set up. It goes from 5700 white tees to 6400 blue to 7000 black. Should be 5700 Red, 6100 white, 6400 blue 6700 gold and 7000 black. 5700 is too short for most players and 6400 is too long.

We had difficulty finding the place as it's fairly new, we arrived about an hour and 45 minutes early. The guy at the counter made a snarky comment to us about being so early however that was the only downside.

Took us a bit longer to tee off as they had run out of carts at one point however we tee'd off at 2:00 (5 min late) and finished at 6:05. So no issues on pace of play.

The greens were perfect, course was tough but fair

Would recommend!

The weather was great although somewhat breezy. The course was in outstanding condition from the tee box thru the greens.

Great layout with different holes, not just the same back and forth.

Would play again, although they are getting quite expensive and do not have anything to reward those of us who have supported them since week one of there opening.
