Course was in really good condition. Fairways and greens were great. Roughs were a little high for me but grounds crew were mowing and blowing grass. Took a little time to find balls if they went in first cut. Otherwise had a great time.

The course was beautiful, and a pleasure to play. It was in good shape, but not as nice as expected with some wet areas. The only issue was the food and beverage service on the course was poor. There was no food at the halfway house, and limited choices on the seldom seen beverage cart. Other than that it was a wonderful round.

Placing your tee shot on the correct side of the fairway goes a long way on this course. Many dog legs and if you're not in the correct position, some tree lines will come into play. Found the greens very easy to read, made many 1 putts to save par or bogey. Quite a few elevation changes up and down hill. A beautiful, scenic course. Was a bit slow (5 hours) on weekend I played, may be faster pace during the week. But had a great time, fun course to play.

Great course for the average weekend golfer. It is challenging but also forgiving. You don't have to hit the perfect shot every time to score well. Great track for the cost - definitely worth a try if you have not been. We played Lakeview but Mountain View is also a wonderful place to play.

Played my second eighteen hole round at 1:45 and finished just before dusk. 4 hour round on the nose. The lake view course is my favorite of the courses and is very short only a par 70. The highlightes of the round was playing 36 holes and the par 3's were great. The par 4's were short and was a very score able course. I played the blues which were pretty short but it didn't really madder I was mostly going to have fun. The clubhouse and practice facilities were nice. The guy in the clubhouse needs to get praised for is excellent work and helpfulness. I loved both the course here and will be here if back in the pine valley area.

I know it doesn't happen often but I felt that I literally had the place to myself. Staff was friendly and the course laid out nicely. It doesn't play long for big hitters; you can play a long iron off the tee for most holes. The scenery was pleasant! I had a great experience and will come back to try the more challenging Mountain course.
