Your tee box changes will allow for change in slope rating. Played on a hotter day , accounting for slower greens. Course layout pleasing to the eye. The practice area was well maintained and very convenient to the 1st tees of both courses on property. Plenty of water was available along the course route and the course was well marked. The day was extremely warm but golf was pleasant.

The course and layout are friendly to the average player. Greens are challenging. People at the course were a bit off. I’ve never been here before so I wasn’t sure were to get range balls. Asked a fellow golfer they were a bit crusty with their answer. Great place to golf though

The only downsides to the whole round was the lack of sand in the bunkers and lack of GPS in the cart. The bunkers consisted of more dirt and rock than sand. I play other courses in the area and they all have some kind of GPS unit in the cart.

I showed up for my scheduled of 12:12 about 45 minutes early. Bought range balls and waited for my time. When I arrived, without there being a starter, I figured out that I was a single, which I was not told, or put into a different group. I played about 6 holes before I ran into their Monday Skins Game, which was made up of 3 FIVESOMES stretched out over 4 holes. I decided to skip ahead, where I ran into a group of Foursomes. Thus I just waited hole after hole until I finally finished my 14 hole round. Now mind you, I have worked in the Golf Business, where our rule was NEVER to send out Singles, let alone where there were FIVESOMES. I will never book a later Tee Time at This Golf Course again.

Well kept, greens roll true. Fun, challenging but still asilo a orange course. However I Can’t stand the people on this course. I’m a single digit handicap as is my brother. We are in our early thirties, healthy and fit. We are relatively fast players finishing right around 4 hours typically. We are quick, but we do not rush. We are our there to play abs enjoy our game. Not rushing to get off the course. We have old players hacking at the ball breathing down our necks every shot. We have to wait in a few shots for players in front of us to get out of our range. 2 groups literally hitting into us as we are waking off the green peppering nearby trees and hit our cart. We have played here mahyvtimr a s it’s always the same. I won’t be returning. Far over priced for the course and environment.

I recently made a negative review on the orchard course because of the greens being punched and it affecting my round. Within 10 mins the general manager called and explained everything to me in complete detail. I’ve never been treated with such respect by someone before. This course is a great place to play and I recommend it to anyone. I will continue to play this course due to the professionalism of the staff and the layout of the course.

I was scheduled to play the Orchard when I heard a group of 5 guys were missing a player. I volunteered and the "Tee" guy changed things and I went and played with 2 friendly guys. The course was in great shape.

The fairways were were taken care of. Greens were undulating and large so putting was challenging. The staff was very friendly,especially the starter Paul Yeager took extra time explaining the course layout and some tips that were quite helpful. Regrettably we could not complete because the temperature was going down fast as the sun was going down. But it was a good 16 hole round. . We will return to this course when the weather is warmer.
