This course is loaded with sand traps! Everyone in our group couldn't avoid them. The greens are guarded by these traps and you need to play very smart to avoid them. That said, I enjoyed the challenge and was thankful the sand traps are well maintained. You want to avoid the thick grass which looks like fescue. It's not helpful.

The course is in a beautiful setting. On some holes the views are spectacular.

You have to play this course when in Central Oregon! Lots of changes to the bunkering and native grasses around all the bunkers. Beautiful to look at and always a challenge. Play it in the afternoon when the wind comes up and you will have all you can handle. Greens are in excellent condition. Course is stunning to look at in its present state.

They let the rough grow to unacceptable heights, and the straw grass on the brows of the bunkers are very unfair, especially at a resort course. The layout is good, but is currently unfair.

2nd cut and rough allowed to grow up to 2'; often impossible to get out of. Dir of Golf wanted to increase difficulty to increase ratings. Locals are no longer playing instead going to Woodlands. Resort guests can take in excess of 5 hours.

Nice course with beautiful fairways & greens. Pace of play was horrible! Lots of standing around & waiting for groups ahead. Marshall could helped out with the pace. Could of also been slow due to cart path only? You need to a code to enter the bathrooms; would of been great to know when we checked in rather than finding out at the 4th hole. I had to call the pro shop for the code and getting through their phone tree was fun... otherwise a good value.

We arrived at the course and found firstly the Pro Shop desk staff indifferent to us as customers.

Understanding that this is a resort course we knew that it would be more busy then other courses we played, but we weren't prepared for the extreme slow play we encountered. On the second hole the group ahead of us spent more then 10 minutes in the fairway at the refreshment cart while we waited to hit our second shots.After 2 holes we were 45 minutes on the course... ridiculous. We called out to them with no response. We stopped the cart spoke to the girl regarding the wait and slow play to ask her to report and send a Marshall out to get the game moving. Prior to tee off the starter warned us the group in front of us was more interested in the beer cart not golf. It was distressing to see them drive the power carts up on to the aprons of the greens and drive to the environmentally sensitive areas. We flagged down a grounds crew member and informed him of this situation. He called someone by the name of Len and reported what we had said, he also said we worked to hard to maintain the course conditions to let someone disrespect the course in this way. Someone would be out shortly, he described the group to Len. We never saw anyone come out to address the issues with the foursome ahead of us. I guess the resort is more concerned about keeping the resort guests happy then maintaining a degree of etiquette on the course. We breathed a sigh a of relief when we the foursomes stopped for lunch and we could get ahead of them. Bottom line slow play, beer cat, non - response from the Pro shop prompted this review. Posted photo of them driving their carts up on #8 par 3 close to the green, did this on all holes, no regards for the course. We as a fioursome do not have any intetrest in going back to this course.

My wife and I played on a midweek afternoon. Course is very nice and in a beautiful resort location. Lots of sand, sand, sand. At least 3 traps that surround every green so that is where the difficulty comes in. The fall colors were changing so it was a great round and the weather was in the 70's

Redone bunkers are excellent with new sand and new design. Greens are hard to hold, but roll true. Slightly elevated greens and thick second cut of rough present extra challenges.

Accuracy is a premium when playing this course.

While I play this course regularly, I always enjoy the experience with some challenging holes and very playable ones

The course is now in very good condition with fast and true greens ( although could be more receptive) well groomed fairways and new sand traps which can be tough, but fair.

The views are wonderful.
