This course is in great shape

This was the third time I have played this course and everytime it is better then the last. The course is always in great shape. It is a good test of ability for golfers of all skill leavels. This course is a lot of fun to play, with many elevated tees and greens you will be challanged from the 1st tee to the 18th.

Got a great deal on GolfNow for this course.

The course is always in very good condition. Playing from the tips was a challenge (7 handicap) but fun. Fairways and rough were lush, this was a very dry summer and the course was kept green. The greens could be a little quicker. Overall an excellent value.

The course was in great shape given the lack of rain and the greens were excellent. Quite picturesque with great view from several tee boxes.

The staff were very friendly and helpful as this was my first visit. The marshall kept the pace of play to the point where there were no undue delays. Given the dry summer conditions the fairways and greens were in great condition and was in the best shape of any of the courses that I played this summer. The only negative is the lack of driving range and the net that is available is not easily accessible from the clubhouse. Overall I had a great day and would highly recommend this course, especially for the price.
