Good day.

Course was in good shape. Greens were nice. There were a lot to players, so had to wait some, but not to long. Had a great day with the wife playing this course.

Nice greens and fairways

Course has dramatically improved its greens. Some cart paths are rough but overalll driveable. Many years ago this course was very nice. It went downhill for awhile and had no sand in the traps. Today all is fine with greens, fairways and sand traps.

Slow weekend play

Fairways and roughs were in good condition. Greens held the approach shot well, rolled true and were very slow. Sand traps appeared to be deep raked. We followed a tournament group and waited on every shot.

Well kept course

Fairways and roughs were in good condition. Greens held the approach shot well, rolled true, and were medium speed. Challenging course if played from the correct tees.

Nice greens and fairways

Course was in very good shape. Only complaint is rough has bermuda and there are some problems in locatiing ball. But, it is the players fault for being in the rough.

Great course

Fairways overall in excellent shape. If your ball lands in the fairway no need to roll it around. Minor areas off fairways under repair but all are marked. Greens very firm but still receptive to a good iron shot in. Rolled very nice and true. Tee boxes all in good condition. Really enjoyed making it back here to play. Played on a Saturday afternoon and pace of play not bad for a Saturday.

Right in front of you

The course is straight forward. Generous greens with subtle breaks. Challenging but not overwhelming. I shall play again!

Enjoyable round

Course was in good condition. Fairways and roughs were well maintained. Greens rolled true, held the ball well, were moderately fast. Sand traps are more like waste bunkers.

Enjoyable round

Fairways in good condition. Greens rolled true, held the approach shot, and were moderately fast. Pace of play was very slow, perhaps due to the number of fivesomes allowed on the course! Challenging layout.
