This is an awesome course and I'm a single digit handicap i shot a 75 from the Back tees and it's 6700 yards and the greens are very big. If you think you hit a close approach think again you will be a good 15 to 30 feet away from the flag.

The east course is better than the west course. The greens are very large, and very green. They are slower than many courses. The course needs rain real bad. Fairways are ok, but not plush. The several ponds come into play, but they smell terrible. The clubhouse employees, and starter very friendly and helpful. My wife and I teed off at 0700, and were done with 18 at 0945. Overall a nice course.

The course was in good shape, fairly quiet for a Saturday morning. Greens were in good shape, we played the east course. There were some very interesting pin placements on Saturday, some in back right or left areas of the greens, hiding behind bunkers. The some greens the pins were in the front, a very nice challenge for controlling the shots. But not unfair by any means.

First time at raisin river. Very impressive. Great condition. Teed off by 7am no wait at all. Challenging length course even from the second tees at 6200yds. The back tees are close to 7000yds. As good or better than alot of other courses to choose from. I'll go back no doubt.
