Had a hole in one.

Ok it was in the last millennium. Played on Fri. Played the front in 1 1/2 hrs. Met a threesome on 11 (where I got my HOLE IN 1) who let me play through. Course was lush, greens in great shape. Usually on the slow side. Most putts don’t break much. Looked like they had some flooding from Sunday’s storm but the course was in great shape except the bunkers which at this price point aren’t usually very nice.
Not many hazards or trouble. Recommended!

Great value

The course is well cared for. Greens were in great shape. Course is fairly open so errant drives aren't as penal. Played from the whites and it was fairly challenging. Walked the course no problem. Tee time 930am on a Sunday and we played our entire round in 4 hrs without running into another group. Highly recommend checking it out at least once.
