First time

First time playing this course with my dad. They book too many twosomes or foursomes too close together. Slows up play a lot. However, greens were wicked fast and overall course was very well kept.

Good Value Course

Good value course. Nice elevation changes, mostly open forgiving course but still interesting. I will probably stick with this course for deals and early season play. Course was in good shape, accommodating staff. My only real issue with this course is the greens. They have "Poe" grass mixed in with the greens which made them very slow and happy. Maybe could be improved with a closer cut and roll.

A Gem in the Mountains

My dad works relatively close to this course, which makes it ideal for us to meet up and play a round in the summer between work and sunset. Beautiful views and some really challenging holes make this a fun course to play. Will definitely play again!

Nice Course

Had a few unique holes. Good place to play if not a long hitter - par 4's were in the 300 to 350 range primarily from white tees). Fairly wide open as well.
