Love playing this course, more like a traditional style course on back nine than links style. Only complaint greens were a little bumpy but just getting over winter so can’t be too critical of that.

The course is in great shape. Greens are fast but will hold shots. The only thing I found to be critical of is their range balls. Perhaps the worst I've ever seen at a course the quality of the Links. Otherwise, everything was great.
