Beautiful scenery but one too many blind shots. Course was in good shape greens were nice but the clubhouse was seriously lacking. One would think that when you spend millions building a golf course you might have some kind of clubhouse other than an old home convert. Staff was very friendly and service excellent. All and all we had a very nice day golfing.

Challenging and fun to play. Some grounds persons a bit of distraction though when playing around them. Some of them didn't acknowledge me and just kept on doing their work without silencing their machines. Bad timing maybe? But I'm happy overall and will play there again.

Early season round and as tough as always.

Course is in great shape except the bunkers. Never hit into 1 so no harm no foul.

Elevation changes and blind shots always make for a good test of your game.

For the price of the course at the beginning of the year and the condition of the course especially the geeens were in it wasn’t worth the 50 bucks to walk that course. Greens are in pretty poor shape hopefully a month of weather a maintenance will turn them around

Great shape. Greens were good. But for a course fully open they should have had their Yardage Markers on the fairways. No Markers made it difficult to estimate your yardage out.

To many blind holes

A very hilly course with unplayable side lies

No yardage markers so hitting the right club is a guess

We played this coarse last weekend of their season so conditions were a bit rough.

Usually greens roll true with lots of tricky slopes.

Sand is usually in good condition.

Some par 4s fairways are a bit dangerous.

Tight and close to each other with blind shots.

Please yell 4 if you flare your drives.

Risk/reward favours long irons/rescue clubs off lots of tees.

Settler's is a treat, especially in the fall.

Course is in fabulous shape and the colours/vistas are eye-opening.

Some blind shots for 1st timers but that will make you come back for more and more.

Thoroughly enjoyed my day.
