Rainy Afternoon

Great place for the money. Greens need a lot of work. Played five holes and then the rain began for two hours. Waited in the shelter and finished the round as the only people on the course. Would challenge the very best golfer.

the course has great potential .

The greens were demanding but not in good shape. The fairways were good,but could use more water. The design of all the holes is excellent. The practice facilities are good.

Enjoyed the day

I always enjoy playing at this course. It has a challenging layout, it has a couple of holes I want to bring my driver out but I leave it in the bag because it sometimes gets me in trouble. For as much rain as we head to the course was in great shape the greens could use a little work though overall had a great day
