Fun course to play!

Course was in great shape for the end of April. Greens were rolling really well and quite quick. Holes 12 -14 are the highlight of the course with 2 par 5's that can be reached in 2. The par 5 #13 has an elevated shallow green that is hard to hit on the second shot. The par 3 #14 is the signature "Death Valley" hole. It is one of the greatest par 3's in the area. There are many fun holes on this course. Two par 4's are driveable which is great for the average golfer.

Great layout ... first time staff was not enjoyable or courteous.

I play this course 2-3 times a year. I very much enjoy it. Today, the greens needed skimmed, but it is November, so no complaints. This is expected. I believe it to be the owner who was working the desk today. It wouldn't kill him to extend a smile or be pleasant to us. We were the only tee time there for the first two hours. After our front nine, stopped in for a warm drink or a hot dog. None to be had. We saw that they have hot dogs and buns, but I guess this service is beneath him. We said no hot dogs sir, he said "it's fall." Note to self .. don't play this course in the fall. Besides the staff, the course is always pretty and enjoyable. Remember, this is an isolated incident, the staff here is usually top notch.

Nice Course

We played here for the first time and would probably play again if not so far away from where we live. It's an old course with a lot of character. A few holes are very challenging with very difficult greens to hold, even with a good shot. The "Death Valley" hole was fun to play. Not the greatest course around, but well maintained and worth the money for sure.

Nice course

Arrived at the course for the first tee time of the day. We were slowed a little bit at the first hold due to the groundscrew doing their daily rolling/mowing of the green. The course itself was very forgiving, and it played a lot easier than it was rated. Simply due to the fact that it's an hours drive for me, I'm unsure if I'd play it again, but overall, not a bad course.
