Not bad. Not great, but not bad.
There's a huge practice range, but it gets a lot of traffic and they don't move the ropes nearly often enough so you are almost always hitting off dirt or small tufts of grass. Nice, big practice bunker, but the sand in there is more like clay and it is both nearly impossible to practice from and feels completely different to the better bunkers on the course. Prices are good, and this year the course has been in much better condition. Course gets a ton of play, so expect to be constantly stuck behind older foursomes, but if you can play there during the off season or twilight hours, the experience will be much improved. Holes are pretty straight forward and not very difficult, but the course has a tendency to be much windier than surrounding areas. If I can give you one top, don't try to cut the corner on 5. A layup in the middle of the fairway still only leaves 90-130 yards, and takes all the trouble out of play.
