Wonderful Layout

Pace of play other than weekends is normally very quick. Today Was especially so. Perhaps Because I didn’t notice the greens had been listed as aerated on the golf now listing. Having said that it’s still a great course. Someday I’ll finish it strongly..

Slowwwwwww

Grounds crews were still out at 1:00 with noisy blowers
A 4 hr round felt like 6 Waiting on every shot
Need rangers to get the seniors moving
Or get the mix of 4 some and pairs right
Not the first time this happened

Always a pleasure

Wonderful layout that challenges you with every stick in your bag. Greens were in excellent condition, not exceptionally fast yet not slow either. Course conditioning was good, though fairways were reasonably tightly mowed, not a lot of bounce on drives (though we did play while dew was still on the course, not on the greens). Friendly staff.

We played 18 in a cart in 2 hours and 50 minutes and two twosomes a head of us were like rabbits. Nice way to play the game.

Nice track

Here visiting from California. Got great deal on Golf now. Course was in very good condition. Greens were fairly fast and rolled well. Very fun layout that will test your game. For bigger hitters, from the silver tees, driver will not be an option on several holes. But still will test your layup. Recommended. Played in 4 hrs 30 minutes as it was full. Not sure if this is always the case but my guess is yes as people were often looking for their balls

Great layout, greens and pace of play

Unfortunately, due to a pretty good downpour of rain the evening prior to my round the course was very, very wet. Bunkers were swimming pools and low spots of elevation had casual water.

But, staff was good, greens were well manicured and we got done in less than 4 hours

Challenging layout

Greens are tough. Lots of slope and accuracies a must. Fairways are well maintained and drained
Finishing 3 holes require stamina at the end of your round!!!

BUNKERS NEED ADDRESSED

Ive played here quite a bit over the years and course in generally in good shape only issue i had was the bunkers. Probably 70% of the traps have little to no sand in them. Staff was great and greens were fast. Id play again but they need to address the bunker issue.

BUNKERS NEED ADDRESSED

I have played here quite a bit the last couple of years and course is always in pretty good shape. My main concern is the sand traps, majority of them are dirt and need sand bad.I believe its hole #5 the traps on side of green are difficult to get of as there is hardly any sand in them mostly dirt. Other than that it is a good course.Staff is friendly and pace of play is good.
