The round was beautiful. From the moment I arrived on the premises the staff was friendly. I had a snack before my round, and again the staff was friendly and engaging. Also the meal was good. I had ample time to loosen up and practice, and never felt rushed. The course was not crowded and the pace of play was smooth. When I caught up with a couple of groups ahead of me, they were courteous in letting me play through. They had plenty of drinking water out on the course so that players could stay hydrated. The course was in great shape, both the greens and fairways. Overall it was a beautiful afternoon. I definitely recommend this course to others.

My buddies play this course via Ideal Golfer. We heard from several duffers the pace of play is most challenging aspect of course. They were right. The Sunday started off right because the day was right for cigars, buddies and $$ on the line. The day however turned frightful. The mean lady... I mean she was mean...didn’t like we used our Ideal Golfer coupons. The pace of play was awful. The sign inside clubhouse said no single play. Well there was a single that tee off before us and it took him almost 15 minutes to finish the first hole...my foursome was at the second box he had not tee off yet... on the phone arguing with his significant other. We called the club house... mean lady said deal with it or go around him. Long story short...the Marshall finally made him join group ahead of him. By the time we reached 10th box... it was backed up with two foursomes. We went to clubhouse to complain and request to play the front nine over. Mean lady said we could play front nine over after we pressed her. Overall, the front nine was very nice. Fairways were nice and greens played fast. Will not visit anytime soon.

Plated this course with my son as a fathers day treat to myself. Both of us had a great round. We played in early afternoon and didnt have anyone in front of us all day.Weather was VERY hot but greens and fairways were well maintained and not baked out at all. Only shortcoming of this course if the bunkers which were in terrible shape. sand was rocky and corse and unplayable in a couple of instances. We are definetly going to play again. Wish it wasnt an hour away!

It is a very nice course. The fairways are in great shape. The greens are soft and full. The carts and paths are in great shape. The ball washers are always empty and not maintained so bring something to clean your balls because the course holds water well and there is a strong need for washers. Joe and the staff are very nice and friendly and laid back. They always say "grab a cart and have a good round".

I love playing this course. I only get to play about once a month so I like to make sure it is good quality golf. It was lite rain and the fairways were soaked but it was still a perfect lie on every shot. The greens were smooth and easy to two putt. Some of the tee boxes could use a break so they can fill in and thicken up. This course has great views. Can not wait to play again.
