You feel like you are the only group on the course. Very long ride to some of the holes. Definitely cannot walk this one.

The only bad experience we had on our day at the course was my husbands conversation with the new manager. He asked my husband if he had played here before. My husband answered that we have been playing here every year since it opened. He said well I have been too in a very abrasive tone. My husband was not expecting this type of really unfriendly response. The wait staff was very friendly. We had lunch before our round. And a drink after our round and the service was very good. The food is good and the club house is beautiful. You will not be disappointed with the course challenging and fair.. Just don't talk to the big union manager guy.

Jewel of the North

This course was absolutely beautiful. The grounds were in outstanding shape despite having over 4 inches of rain the previous week (two days previously we played a course a few miles away that cost more and was water logged). I was amazed that we did not see more people on the course on Memorial Day. We had a 8:40 AM tee time and were the 2nd group out on the course. The only reason it took 4 hours to complete our round was that we spent a lot of time in the woods looking for my partner's errant shots.
