We were the first one off at 8 AM in the morning. The course was fun to play as it has lots of hills and slopes. Greens are in very good condition and the fairways are very nice! Highly recommend it

The staff was great! Food was good! And the course was in good shape, nothing specific about the condition stands out. I should be used to 3 of the par 3's being the same club. We played the Vista and Dunes, and glad to have a course map the first time around.

Greens were slow. Ball marks. Casual play. Nothing fancy. Just a nice place to get some swings in.

Presently surprised at how well the course looked and played for this time of the year. The greens were rolling very true and pace was 3.5 hrs. No complaints had a great time. Recommend anytime
