A+ Fairways, A+ Greens

Really nice course, 5 tee boxes, The greens are in great shape, plenty of elevation with tee boxes and greens. The fairways are very wide open as well. Not penalized too bad if you miss a fairway. Pat 5 hole 17 is one of the best par 5’s in public golf

Gorgeous views

Definitely a must play ! Course was in great shape. The greens were verticut yesterday and had fresh sand top dressing and I hate that but the ball still rolled well. Just a beautiful course with amazing views !!! No houses on any hole and fairway grass was perfect !

Beautiful course

Played here couple times before. Course was in good shape and well maintained. Restrooms were very clean out on the course. Get a styrofoam cup of ice/water just inside the golf cart garage and then can refill throughout the course.

Great except for the weather

If it hadn’t been cart path because of all the recent rain I’d give it 5 stars across the board. Still one of my favorite courses.

Tough and beautiful

I have played this course a half dozen times and it amazes me each time I play. Narrow fairways with woods as rough and extremely difficult greens to read make it a Great couples best ball course for those that are shy and timid with tough courses. Beautiful in spring and fall.

Great track

Enjoyed playing this course. Fairways were good, greens were in great shape. Hole 17 was a par 3 all down hill, my favorite so far of the Ozark courses I’ve played. Range was closed for the year.
