At first, I was reluctant to give this year-old course five stars. After all, that's the highest rating we have, and those are usually reserved for the very best courses in the world. Then, as I thought back to this round and the attention to detail and the well thought-out holes by golf course architect Brandon Johnson, I couldn't help but answer excellent to every question. My only reservation is the construction that's going on around the golf course, but in retrospect, it's not enough to detract from how thoroughly enjoyable this experience was. First off, the greens, which can certainly be difficult, are very fair. You just have to use the slopes to your advantage. More than that, they're super interesting. The course is also imminently playable, with five sets of tees that allow the less-skilled or shorter golfer to avoid forced carries. And conditions here, even in the winter without overseeding, were outstanding. The semi-dormant greens rolled true and very fast, and the dormant fairways were in excellent shape. I look forward to seeing the course again after the clubhouse is built and the course has greened up.
