Nice lay out

We had a great golf day starting with a warm welcome from the pro shop and the golf cart manager. The range is fun as you hit all shots into A small lake behind the clubhouse.
Lots of water holes so be prepared for some target golf. Greens are well maintained and have some undulation to them.
Enjoyed the experience.

Dissapoited

Greens were slow and bumpy, not mowed. Weeds and thin grass. Not well maintained course. We probably won't play it again.

rest room horrors

Visiting rest room prior to starting golf was a bad experience. Smelly no dish soap available. There was a truck "Demolition dynamite" nearly completely blocking path to Hole 1. Greens were extra slow. Fairways were nearly bald at many places. I encountered a group of 5 ahead of me. One of them would spray the ball everywhere including water and would go fishing for lost ball to boot. They lacked decency and did not let me pass them (single golfer). There was no ranger in sight. This course can be devilish with very tight space for 2nd shots. This can be a course which beckons you to come back but I will wait a while until they get their act together

Top notch course

Enjoyable day. Other than landing in an old Divet in a fairway, I didn’t have one bad lie all day. First time I can say that in a very very long time. Most courses around this area have some kind of hard pan and runoff areas that are bare and Sandy. Not here, great condition. Greens a little on the slower side but good condition and rolled true.

Very Nice Course amazing houses.

Really enjoyed this course, it was in great shape from tee to green. It is fairly open but trouble lurks every where if you are a little wild on your shots. Staff where friendly and pace of play was pretty good. I will definitely add to my list of frequent courses to play in area,

Challenge the wall!

Great course layout. Many holes you will surely remember. Staff was very engaging. With no rain in months, the courses are truly challenged indeed. Cheval is not far off. Please stay afloat during these tough times that the USA is having. If you enjoy nature.Cheval is the place to go.
