Perfect weather

Very nice short course

Excellent weather and a short course prompted the use of push carts; made for a very relaxing day on the course. For a Saturday with perfect weather the course was not very crowded. Overall course conditions were very good. Some of the greens had bad spots. Since most of the holes are par 3, the incidence of unrepaired pitch marks is obvious. This should not deter anyone from playing such a nicely laid out course. There is plenty of shade along the cart paths to keep you cool on a sunny day.

The greens had some deceiving slopes and played a bit slow today.

Overall a very enjoyable course to play.

Don't forget to have a bite to eat at the club house, as the food is very good, as well as the hospitality.

Windy weather

Enjoyable Executive Course

We decided to take off work a bit early and play a new course by my friends office. We walked the course. Tee'd off at 3:30 and finished 18 holes in 2 hours and 25 minutes.

Pace of Play was great but then again it was Halloween so I am sure most folks were heading home to trick or treat with their kids.

We played from the back tees (Blue) total yards 3,294. There were 4 Par Fours and the rest Par threes. There was a nice variety to the holes (some easy, some challenging). A few of the par threes were 170/175 yards so that was a drive for us (and it was fun to drive a green).

There are holes that require you carry waste areas or bunkers so it was a nice test of accuracy. The greens were very slow but the day before it rained 2 or 3 inches so the fairways and greens were very soft. It was a bit wetter than I expected so I think the course doesn't drain as well as other courses I play.

I assume in the summer the greens will be faster (or true) if there is not a lot of rain.

I can't speak to how busy the course may be in the summer, but it was a great after work round on a beautiful fall day.

Although they have carts, I would recommend walking the course. It's not too hilly and even walking the cart path it was an easy walk.

The twilight rate for a none-resident, walking was $24 which I think is reasonable for 18-holes. Residents can buy a county card and then the rate is only $16 to walk 18-holes.

Good day

Needed something close that we could play quickly. This course is ideal for something like that. Kind of pricey for an executive course but that's life.

Short & easy course

A great course for beginners. A total of 3-4 par 4's, rest are par 3's. Course plays really fast, not much room to let loose on the driver. Course is well kept and quiet. Would golf it again.

A beginner course

Most holes are short and are good for beginners but not challenging enough for more experienced players. The course is well-maintained and easy to hit. I should have walked as it's a very pleasant course to walk around.

Great place to play

1st and foremost - The greens keeping is excellent, truly more like a private course.

This is an executive course, very walkable. The layout is challenging
