Steep Hills with Beautiful Layout

We played as a twosome on a beautiful day. The course and greens were in excellent shape. The rolling terrain required careful shot placement and some unexpected rolls or lies on semi-blind shots (our first time here). We older players who rarely hit the ball 200 yards, but had a great time playing this course (even if we didn't score as well as we would have liked). We would recommend it for those wanting a scenic round with some interesting challenges.

Value/Discounts

I have played this course at least 25 times or more in the past years. This course is part of a vacation destination for us and will include it in our courses to play. We have enjoyed the golf discounts and the package discounts of which we have taken advantage of both. However recently the only discounts they seem to offer are the play and stay packages. I would like to see some golf only discounts from time to time. I believe this would increase their course play as well as bring in new players to experience the course first hand.

Challenging Course

Course was pretty challenging but a lot of fun. So if you are new to golf, probably not the course to try. Staff was great and course was in excellent condition.

Picturesque Course

Played four courses in the Gaylord area and this course was excellent. Some challenging holes and would look forward to playing it again. The course was hilly with a lot of different lies. The club house was very nice.

Good course but terrible management play

I’ve played the natural course before. I had no issues as i was one of the only people on the course. Went and played again, there were probably 6-10 cars in the parking lot, but somehow took me 4 and a half almost 5 hours for 18 holes. I was a single riding with my girlfriend and neither of the two foursomes ahead of me let me play through. Nobody was paying attention to the pace of play and it was very frustrating. If u have anybody playing ahead of u, be prepared for a very long round at this course. Otherwise good conditions and challenging course.

Need better marking

Great course! However, adding 100 yard stacks would help immensely
