Very wet, greens recently plugged, tough putting conditions

This is an incredible layout and a really terrific course. Unfortunately it was extremely wet and the greens were recently plugged and very difficult to putt on.

First Time Playing

Great Course - staff not so much

I’m not a rookie or hacker that complains about every course I’ve played over the years, and I’ve played many domestically and internationally. With that said, I was disappointed with the staff at this course,; pro shop, starter, grounds crew all seemed to have an attitude. It seemed odd, especially during the summer months when all snow birds or part-timers aren’t here or maybe it happened to be one of the more hotter days of the year. Nonetheless I got the same attitude once we made the turn and to wait 20 minutes - we started on the back nine first. We did enjoy the course despite having been aerated. Layout, water risk/rewards, tee boxes, well manicured, and in all-around great shape. I still recommend in spite of attitudes.

Great couse

We really enjoyed playing the couse...recent aeration made the greens pretty rough, but knew that going in.

Nice course !

Second time playing this course and I like it. Fairways are awesome! Greens still had a little sand on them but rolled pretty good. Everyone is friendly and the pace was under 4 hours.

Great Course!

Great course! Extremely challenging! It depends on what tee box is played. It is designed for every type of golfer. The greens and tee boxes had been punched but it was still very fun playing. Cant hold this against the course they need to do maintenance to keep it nice. Other than that I would give course conditions 5 stars.

5 star course

Greens a bit slow and bumpy, but otherwise one of the top course on the west coast.
