The course is short but the layout is quite nice with lots of elevation changes - take a cart. Course was very dry due to the lack of spring rain - greens & tee boxes not in very good condition, but was fun to play. Getting there was an adventure partially on a sand road - if traveling from the west, be sure to take the road north of the club not the one on the south boundary unless you drive a dune buggy.

Generally condition greens and fairways could stand improvement. But it's still early in the season so things might change.

The staff here are very friendly, the clubhouse was nice, good wings, ballgame on the big screen. The course is short, so you'd think it would be good for beginners, but it is also very hilly, which makes it difficult. The greens were just punched and it is early in the year, so putting was not great, but I've been here before and know they won't be tour-level, but they will get to be smooth and they have some character too. If you're just looking for a quick cheap round after work with a beer afterwards this is a good place to go for fun. If you take it more seriously than that then this probably isn't the place for you.

Played this course before with previous owners and have noticed lots of improvements to clubhouse and grounds since the take over. Great staff, nice carts. Good food and beer prices. Couple minor things could be improved in course conditions but everytime we go they are working on something. Can't golf anywhere else for $34 and get as good value. Will keep coming back!

Great deal through Golf now! My wife & I cannot hit the ball that far so its the perfect course for us. We arrived a bit early & the staff said tee off anytime you want. Such friendly people!! Course is in great shape despite a few rough tee boxes.

Very hilly, and rather steep at times, difficult to walk.<br/> Greens in fair condition, sand traps lack sand and need attention.<br/> Yardage is somewhat questionable at times...<br/> Improvements are in progress, will be interesting next year.

This course is an 18 hole par 58 (two 29s).<br/> There are 2 par 4s on the front 9 and 2 par 4s on the back 9. You can find out the scoring card on their website, so you know ahead of time what this place is like.

Make sure you drive up from the north side, not south side if you are coming from south make sure you have a 4X4 as the Russel road is a dirt road going through the forest and is quite sandy. ;)<br/> No problem coming from the north.

I had a great time, very peaceful place, love the surroundings, very beautiful scenery.

Enjoy.<br/> Irek

I had heard the course had new managent and hadnt play'd there in atleast fiften years. the last time i was there it was in tough shape so i hadn't been back. what ever the new owners have done has been a good thing. The club house is new and fresh and the course is is great shape! I think that this will be my new thursday night course. I had some wings after my game and they are worth going for on their own. I dont do many reviews but i felt this one was looking into. Saying that I hope that you can get out and have the same experience i did. cheers
