I enjoyed my round here on Saturday. The price was good. The pro shop staff member was great. The practice facilities were great. The course was in good shape other than one hole which had a temporary tee. I think given my normally high handicap I would feel more comfortable at a course with fewer houses. I didn't have any close calls, but the worry of maybe hitting a bad slice into someone's yard did play into my shot selection. I lost three balls in the water and there are a number of holes with water. There appears to be a lot of new building lots going in and a lot more houses already built on the course since I played it last. I would play the course again, but hopefully when I am a better golfer.

Course was in good shape for mid December. No standing water. Shotgun start. One of the holes was being renovated, so it was shortened. Hot deal on golf now was great. Included a cart. Both carts in our group were in terrible shape, full of garbage, no brakes, and wayward steering. Got around in 3:40. I would play again, but not for full price.

This course is the newest one built in this area and has well engineered drainage and design. After weeks of rain the course had no standing water and very few patches of squishy grass on the fairways and the greens were in good shape. It was a good round of golf in December.

Course was perfect - had it all to ourselves - let us go on early to get our round in before sunset. However two concerns - they locked the washrooms before 6 pm and we had to have the power carts back by 6 pm so we could not finish the last 2 holes. But it was still a great round of golf - enjoyed it thoroughly.
