Strange layout

The course is in good shape and enjoyable to play. Greens roll well and have subtle breaks. The negative is the distance between holes and sometimes difficulty finding out which way to go. Had trouble finding the forward tees on a couple of holes.
You can take carts to your car, so best to not use bag drop, but rather park, check in and get a cart.

Would play this course again.

We'll be back

There is nothing bad to say about this course. From the $15.00 six pack of beer to the pace of play - it was all good. We wouldn't recommend walking this course - and don't even know if it's allowed, but there's quite a distance between some holes.

Absolutely amazing!

This is an amazing course. Bring a box of balls, especially 1st timers. Tricky holes and shots.
Also, dont be afraid to ask clubhouse employee the layout, very easy to get off track. Only complaint is lack of gps on carts.

82 From the Blue

Great course from the back tees, particularly the back 9. Stunning views in the Black Hills that remind us why they are sacred to the Lakota Peoples.

The staff is always friendly and it is a well kept course except for the cart paths...

The most scenic course in the Black Hills

Beautiful course. Well maintained. So scenic! Fairways are wide and forgiving. It doesn't favor long hitters. It has a few holes that will let you air it out. The doglegs will eat your lunch on the rest of the long holes.
Extra large landing areas left and right of the fairways, where "average golfers tend to land their tee shots. it's a great place to play no matter what your level.
