Great Course

Never been there before and was definitely surprised by the huge uphill Par 4 but it played well. Looks like some bunkers were taken out to not murder the golfers ha! I would say the back 9 links are super challenging and felt like I was going to hit someone but thats probably my bad slice! Overall awesome experience!

Early Spring Golf

Greens had recently been punched and sanded and were still recovering from that but they rolled true and with consistent speed through all the holes. The fairways were a little sparse considering all of the rain thus far this Spring. We were a little surprised that they made us ride 2 to a cart, considering the Coronavirus restrictions on most courses and they had rakes in the bunkers. We liked the set up for the pins, themselves. Never touched a flag and the apparatus they were using made it very easy to remove the ball from the hole. We know the course will grow in as the weather becomes consistently warm. All in all, it was a good day on the course.

I swear if I go more than a week without playing this course I start to miss it! After Royal New Kent I think it's honestly the best golf course in the entire area!

Very nice course with interesting challenges on front nine. Greens were nicest ones around the area.

Good value for the money spent. An easy ride to get to.
Handled the virus conditions well.
For the crowd there had a really good pace of play.

It's funny how if I go a week or two without playing here, I actually miss it! Other than Royal New Kent, I don't feel that way about any course!

Great Course!!

I enjoy playing this course as much as any other course in the entire area! I was a little disappointed because of the condition of the fairways, but I'm hoping that this will improve as the year goes on. Also, this layout and the differences in attitude make this course absolutely beautiful!

Bugs so many bugs

This is a nice little gem, tucked away. But you pay for it on the back 9 with the May flies. Unbelievable and have never seen anything like it. Swarmed by the 100’s around you.

Great winter conditions

Great conditions considering it’s Dec 30 and had rained recently. Course was wide open and a single could finish play in about 2.5 hours. Friendly pro and great value. Will be back again soon!

Disappointed in other players

It was 3 of us first time playing there. Of coarse trying to figure out layout. Players behind us called the office said we where slow. Nice guy from club house came to talk to us. We told him and he could see we where hitting with the people in front of us. He said the guys behind us play in 3 hours not our fault they were busy at the time we were playing. Apologized again in club house when finished. The guys in front of us were in the bar and came over when they heard us and said we played in 3 1/2 hours he did not know what the problem was. Overall coarse was pretty good. Not sure I’ll go back because of some people on the coarse. Greens were nice and fast. Fairways ok for this time of year. Rough hard to find balls in.
