Not a long course but it can be challenging. Course conditions are decent but there are a few spots where the fairways have some issues.

just getting to the course is a challenge. The road that leads to the course is about 18 feet wide with no shoulders, it seems somewhat dangerous. In beautiful area. Course seems stuffed in when there seems to be a lot of empty space around. Never heard 'fore' yelled so many times due to close quarters of holes. Fairways, rough and tee boxes in rough shape. Greens lightning, don't get above the holes. Staff friendly.

This was the third time I have played this course. Each time it is better. Generous fairways and really fast greens. Amenities are top shelf as well. The staff really goes out of their way to ensure you have a great time. This is the best hot deal on the golfnow.com website. The hotel has some excellent dining too. My advantage is the course is less than an hour away. Look forward to the next chance I get to play here.

Wow, why can't this layout be duplicated in a premium course closer to the city. Maybe one of my favorite layouts, lots of risk reward and driveable par fours. I would play again even though grass quality is just not there. Sometimes hard to tell fairway apart from rough. Beautiful views and lots of elevated tee boxes.

It was tricky getting to the course but once there it was one of the best courses I have played in years. Course conditions were wet in the morning but seemed to dry out very quickly by mid morning. Never had to wait more than 1 or 2 minutes to tee off. The course had many challenging holes, but not to hard to keep me from coming back. Great day for golf and great course to play!
