This course is a hidden gem. It has been in better condition in the past, but it's still pretty good. One of the most beautiful courses you can play with mountain views, wild deer, and turkey. I will definitely be back.

The first hole to greet me had trees left and right, and a hill beyond the trees. I had no idea where the fairway went from there. No one was ahead of me.

When I got to the 2nd hole, there was a twosome in front of me. I have no idea how they got there. They let me play through.

Hole # 4 had a twosome appear ahead of me from out of nowhere. They also let me play through.

At # 16, I was suddenly behind two foursomes.

There were wild turkeys in abundance, along with lots of scenic trees which made a loud noise when my ball hit them.

I donated several balls to the woods and rough.

This was a very nice course with lots of scenery. When we arrived it was foggy so the course was wet but dried out nicely as the day went along. We saw some wild turkeys on the course and was told to watch for bears and snakes but did not get a chance to see any other wild life. The course has a nice layout and is more challenging than it looked.

The greens were in nice shape, but many of the fairways were thin and hard to get a good lie. There are several holes that are difficult to play because of blind shots. Prior knowledge or playing with someone who knows the course would be a big plus.

I have played this course several times and not much has changed. There is some nasty grass around several greens and the fairways can be very hard this time of year. The course is plenty challenging enough for me and I usually shoot around 83 to 85. For the price it is a good deal. If you are staying in Townsend you should definitely play this course.
