The greens where in very good condition . They were slower then they had been previously. The fairways had bee cut and the rough was not overly long. The pace of play seemed somewhat slow with a threesome ahead of us and a fivesome ahead of them. However, we still played the course in a little over four hours. Both my partner and I will play the course again.

Booked the tee time, got a great rate. They had a one-man scramble I wouldn't going on before the tee time there were only two groups ahead of me and I joined another single to form a two-some. My tee time was pushed back about 20 minutes as I was told there was a one-man scramble in progress. I realize you can't have everything covered as far as warning people of groups on the course, that being said we had to wait on every tee box. The course condition was excellent they recently aerated but the greens were very puttable. The fairways, tee boxes and bunkers were excellent as usual. This course is well worth your time and drive as it is consistently in great shape. The staff there is always friendly and accommodating.

This was my first time playing this course. When me and my buddy got there, we were told it could be 30 more minutes before we could tee off as there was an outing heading out. Didn't know that beforehand which was a bummer but just went to the putting green to practice. We weren't there more than 2 minutes and the guy from the clubhouse came out and told us to start on hole 4, then come back and play 1-3 as by that time the outing would be done. It couldn't of worked out any better and I couldn't thank that man enough for offering that suggestion! Course was very wide open, so driving wasn't hard but a ton of bunkers. I caught a few of them and a few of the holes have water in play so you do have to keep it straight. Overall, I loved it and the kind suggestion from the worker will draw me back to this course. Only problem, not one time did the drink/food cart come by so when I got back to the clubhouse had to go inside to buy something. Not a big deal just surprising since it was a Saturday. Thanks!
