The course was in excellent shape. The wind was up making it a little more challenging. Played with a couple of members. They said it was under new management. Putting in a new paved parking lot. Nice place to play.

Unfortunately we plated here the day after 24 hours of moderate rain. It made for a very very tough day. The weather was great, the company was great, but this track is lacking an efficient draining system. I'm totally surprised they allowed carts out there. This is a great 'out there' challenging track that we have played fore years. Always in great condition and staff is friendly there. I hope this isn't my last round of the season in the wetest conditions ever!

Wet and windy day, few fellow golfers. So excellent pace of play, haha.

Course in very good condition, aeration etc. underway.

Having an on-site winery room is a nice plus. There is also an exellent dinig facility. Sandwiches to go were excellent, and the hot chocolate much appreciated.

The carts are not covered and only a couple of the fourty or so had hoods to cover the clubs.

In over 54 yrs of playing golf, this was clearly the absolute worst round from an enjoyment perspective.

The round was booked on Golf Now, with the intention of joining other players in a 3 or 4 some. However, they were so disorganized because they had a men's league playing at about the same time. Ended up with a twosome (another Golf Now patron). As we started, the Marshall said " Did they tell you about the greens" No they didn't - turns out it was " Greens keeper's revenge day". Never heard of it before - well the color coded flags indicating pin placements were in many cases in opposite locations & nearly every hole location was in an impossible place. Puts hita couple inches short or long, rolled back to where they came from - short putts rolled off the green - you could see it happening all over. Apparently, it's an annual event for the member's & this league.

Unfortunately, for the paying visitor, it was just a nightmare. The course & Golf Now should refund the green fees for anyone unaware of this practical joke.

I really enjoyed this course despite the windy weather it was literally blowing my ball around on the greens. The course is beautiful well maintained as expected and very friendly staff and members. I did have one complaint the bird bangers were super annoying and scared the heck out of me several times I don't think they work either as the birds don't fly away from the noises. Other than that what a beautiful course and I know they have great wine next time I'll have to play a later round so I can finish with a glass of white.

Golfing during the so called eclipse.....

Always enjoy the drive down and great surroundings...

If you can handle the bird shots going off in the vineyards then you will enjoy the course

Always leave with a wine tasting and a bottle!
