great layout

Really great layout with several memorable holes. First course we played since Florida that wasn't thin hard fairways. Had new deep sand, some dead spots where carts congregate. Greens were great except for a few spots. Very friendly and helpful. Worth the drive.

Thank you for your feedback on your experience at the course. We're sorry to hear that the pace of play was not up to par. We assure that this is not the standard we strive for.
