A great place to loosen up your golf body or to sharpen your Golf skills. Easy walking some roots in pathways, see you next snowbird season.

Nice par 3 course

Fun to play. Fairways and greens in nice shape, especially the greens. Gets a lot of play and pace is slow. A lot of senior players and most walking. Has a nice practice area but driving range is off mats.

Great 9 Hole course

Played as a single at 7:45 with cart and had the entire place to myself. Course is in excellent condition....tee boxes to greens.
This course has 7 par 3s and 2 par 4s and water on 7 holes...narrow track.
A great course for the new player and intermediate with nice practice facilities and friendly staff.

Nice par 3 - operationally disorganized

The course is nice, water hazards, lots of grass. They double booked our tee time - asked us to arrive an hour later. It was a busy day - showed up 45 minutes before tee time but only able to hit balls for 5min because of staff shortage- no balls and no cart.

Compact irons course

Water hazards gobble up errant balls. Hit straight you can score decently. Greens very sandy effects putting efforts. Enjoyed the day
