Poor experience

Course very noisy

Many constructions houses around.

It is not peaceful at all ! Plus ....

Charged an extra 20$ when your wife come with you ! First time in my life ! Argument from the golf, you need an extra cart. but when you play alone or at 3 like i ve played, you need a cart anyway. It is just to make bad money. Not commercial. They prefer to make big money than getting customers satisfaction. Shame. My last time here.

First Time Playing

A Real Test of Golf

Played this course for the first time this week. Very nice layout, lots of interesting shapes to holes. Course in great condition and greens in great shape.

This is a good challenge for all levels of golfers. Plays fair from the back tees and brings bunkers and water into play.

Will be a return visit to this course!!!!
