Great Course

Course is in great condition. Tough to read greens but that's the nature of mountain courses. Love the layout of this course.

Great time at the Links

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.

Golf

We like playing this course it has its challenges only problem is during this time of year it seems to rain. We have played it four times since we have been here and were rained out once, but Golf Now credited my credit card on that occasion. Thanks will play there again before we leave.

Good course in a good location.

The folks at the course are nice, the course is always good and the design layout is fun. Links on the first nine and more traditional layout on the back nine. I like that greatly.

Beautiful course

This course was in very good shape and beautiful. I gave a low mark for pace of play because they allowed a very slow group of five. That's just never a good idea and they should change that rule.

Nice course but slow play

Very nice course. Friendly staff, great layout, and course was in excellent condition. Only problem was slow play on the back nine. Total time was just over 5 hours.

Great value

Course was in great shape--greens were excellent the first time we played. The second time they were very marked up with divots and spike marks (they had a tournament in the morning)--don't understand why people can't fix their divot marks. Pace of play was definitely an issue. Got behind a threesome that took almost 25 minutes to play 2 holes--so we played the front 9 a second time. Other than those minor issues, we were very pleased with the course!! Fun time.
