course in good shape but slow play ruined the experience. Took us 5 hr 20 min to play. didn't see a ranger all day, One group 2 foursomes ahead of us had 3 to 4 holes open in front of them all day. Complained at the turn only got a smart answer. Too many courses in the area will never go back.

The West Course is tight with a lot of trees. If you can't keep your drive straight, this is not the place for you. Every other hole is a dog leg left or right through the trees. Course conditions were ok with some rough spots. Greens were small and on the slower side. However, the course was fairly wet from a storm a few days prior. The drainage must not be great and there is a ton of shade from the trees. There are a few nice holes with island type greens and the signature 9th and 18th shared green. The East Course looks a little more open and forgiving. Would play again but can do better elsewhere for $60.

Excellent, friendly staff. Free, quality range balls with our tee time. Quiet electric carts. Bent grass greens were true but cut a litle long for my taste, hence a little slow. Rough was penal. Great rate. No getting around it, big flies bothered us. Would bring bug spray. No different from other courses we've played in the area., it's just buggy in late July humidity. Gotta accept it. Will go back for sure.

Hottest day in July and the staff were still super friendly and very accommodating. From the bag drop off area to the pro shop to the restaurant, everybody was extremely welcoming.

The course was a great mix of tight holes and open areas. Hole 14, with its island green was beautiful and challenging.

We golfed in late March, it was a little windy and chilly, but we were impressed with the conditions. The green were very good, balls rolled true and fast. We really liked the feel of the course with no houses on the courses, and found the layout to be fair but challenging.

Really annoyed about the pace of play. Doesn't take 3 guys to find a ball, If all three hit and you can't find it , drop.<br/> Play from your tees which made it worse.<br/> Other than that is go back. I play as a singe but get paired up. When the guy you get paired with leaves , that's bad

Played the west course. If you like tight fairways and tight greens, you will love this place. Greens were in great shape and we had no bug problems as others described. Play smart and keep the driver in the bag unless you hit it straight! Highly recommend, very friendly staff.

Played the east and then the west the following day. Loved them both. The east is a good warm up for the west as the west IS tougher and has more water. Both were in great shape tee to green, and the zoysia fairways on the east made finding the fairway a delight. Plenty of course for all levels of player with 5 tee positions per hole. Super friendly staff! We'll surely be back!

We had a 2:36 tee time, arrived at 1:45 and once we carted up were allowed to go right out at 2:00 PM. The course was open and we played 18 (with about a 15 minute snack break at the turn since there was nobody behind us) in 3:20. The course is in great condition and the greens are true with a couple of difficult pin placements to keep things interesting.
