Nice views, challenging course

It had been quite a while since I played this course as I live near the coast and it is 50 mil trek one way. However; I found the course to be in pretty good condition; with fast but true greens and enough grass or turf on the fairways to make good contact etc. It is a challenge but that is what I like as you have the possibility of using every club in your bag and are challenged with both uphill and downhill tees and greens; supplemented with some sloping fairways. If I lived closer I would play a couple of times a month or more instead of a couple of times a year! Off course amenities are good and the staff friendly.

Extremely hard

The course needs a lot of work on the fairways, sand traps and t-boxes. The elevation changes are rediculous. This is not for the average golfer! There were no more than 10 golfers on the entire course and I had to play alone! Sorry for the negative review, blame Greg Norman!!

See for yourself!

Had fun at this course. Enjoy the layout. Various lie angle changes. Lots of ravines to carry. Supposedly the grass is dormant at this time. It’s definitely in hibernation. The course is very brown. And seems to Need plenty of TLC. Paid $52 To play this past Saturday. Possibly a justified rate, or a bit overpriced. Greens are fast. Bunkers need work also. Would still recommend playing it.

Good course for the price

Made tee time 4 days after they completed their punch green week. I took gamble and hope the greens were restore but they were not. Most of the green were slow and sandy. Fairways were decent shape. Some holes had dead grass but for the most part it was ok. Pace of play was slow due to group ahead of us. No marshal in sigh to get them to pick up the pace. If it wasn't for that group we would of finish in under 4 hours. Group of 4. The course is challenging. Handful of blind shots. We played from the Silver tee. You can't hit driver on several holes. It help we played with someone who has played there before. Otherwise we would of had tough time. Overall it was good looking course, with challenging holes and fair price for Saturday.

Overall the course is in desperate need of water ( Bone dry} There were some newly planted trees and they are dying too. Greens are dry grass looks like artificial grass. You can hardly find the markings on the tee boxes.The Fairways are narrow and hilly if you don't land in the middle of the fairways your ball will end up in the ravine forget going after your ball there are warning signs to look out for snakes.

I wouldn't play this course for FREE!!!!
