So quirky!

Amazing layout, course in great condition but most of all, so dang fun. Certainly have to use your head on this one and not just grip it and rip it. Course reminds me of a blend between Salish Cliffs in WA and Prestwick GC in Scotland. Huge kudos to the designers!

Fantastic time!

Reading all of the reviews before hand I noticed a few of the same concerns; staff unfriendliness and the tee time not being able to be moved. Tee time was 10:04am and I was offered a tee time earlier if I wanted to. Very casual feeling but well kept. I enjoyed the pair that golfed with me; they were very knowledgeable of the course about shot placements. Very little wait. Luckily I had a cart. Challenging and a bit windy at the top. They offer a cooler with ice so my beer stayed ice cold the whole time. However I did not see a beverage/concessions cart but they had reasonable prices in the casual clubhouse. Will want to golf there again with friends for a game of skins. Thanks!

Best scenic course

Our third time here, it is hilly so a cart is recommended. Water, sand, trees can be easily found and I did. The greens were very smooth and offered challenges. A tad windy for the front nine but easily playable. This course is exciting as it is different from many courses in the flat land.

Nice course

This course is really challenging. There are a lot of trees so you had to aim and be right on!

The course is in excellent shape!

Course was ok

Nice course, very nice challenging holes. Great scenery!! Staff was not very pleasant we had to skip hole one and go to two so we could get out. Big traffic jam because people wanted to wait for other people in parking lot. We pleaded to go out but we're not allowed cause it wasn't our tee time yet, after watching a huge gap and then a twosome with a foursome behind waiting we drove to hole two. Finished in about four hours. Other than that nice course.

Great time with my wife

I have been playing this course around 3 times a summer over the last 4 years and it has improved a lot. The fairways have grown in beautifully and the greens are in much better shape. My wife and I were really impressed how much better the overall course is manicured this year.

Quirky course

This is not your typical layout but it was a lot of fun. Teeing off with a 7i on a par 5? I only hit driver on 6 holes. If the guy I was paired up had not played there a few times before, I would have been completely lost. Good value and good condition.

challenging design

This is a very nice course. Challenges you to hit it straight from all tees and plan where you need to play your next shot from. Even on the longer holes a driver might be more than you need to start the hole. The greens run fast and hard. Stopping the ball is a must. Water hazards are crystal clear but don't waste time trying to get a ball back. You'll never reach it, it belongs to the lake now. Cut out of the trees and in the hills it's pleasant even on a hot day. I had a great day.

Second time playing this course in three days and cant get enough of it! First one on the course and was able to fly through. Fun, challenging holes, with chances at birdies on a number of them. Views can't be beat, Unbelievable value for the money through golfnow

Course Review

The only suggestion I would have as they mow the fairways (seems like daily) is they need to sweep up the grass. As it is deep and it is hard to find and hit the ball in it.

KandDGolf, we would like to thank you for playing SunCountry on Monday the 25th of August! Our apologies for the grass, unfortunately over the weekend the grass grew so much we had grass clippings on some of our holes. We try to strive for excellent course conditions and are so sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We can only hope that your next visit you will see that we do not always leave the grass laying around and try to sweep/blow it away for pristine conditions.
Happy Golfing,
SunCountry Golf Course

Golfing Pleasure

This facility is a nice balance between manicured well designed course with super friendly down home country setting. The course asks you to play "shots", not just hit the ball and you really must plan you way around, so bring some strategy. Hole 15 par 3 has maybe 60' drop, outstanding fun to play.

Sun country

Fun course to play. Not long, but tests your shot placement. Good test for those who don't hit it long anymore. Pace was good, but a couple of groups ahead of us just didn't understand keeping up. Marshal did what he could. Good value and will play again.
