Once through the front nine we hit a roadblock. One group late in the afternoon slowing down the entire course. 3 hour pace to complete the back nine. An hour of golf lost and at least 5 groups of golfers that could have finished didn't get to finish their rounds. Too bad. Lots of Marshall's around too.

Course views are superb in Fall

Love this course. Great variety of holes, with difficulty placed throughout. Long with hilly portions and spectacular views especially #11 tee block. At this time of year, mid October, greens bumpy and erratic as expected for a public course.

Some of Thompson’s good stuff

Really good track. The design is outstanding. Condition was quite good although the greens were aerated. I wish they would tell you that on the app before you pay...

Will play this frequently again.
