Absolutely beautiful course!

Pete Dye has built a beautiful course along the New River. Course conditions are pristine, the only missing today was my short game!

Beautiful venue and a challenging layout

A bit different Pete Dye design with smaller greens than expected and no penalizing bunkers around the green or along the fairways. The greens rolled about a 9.5 and not much break. Don’t overread them. The White Tees play 6500 and with a North wind the incoming 4 holes play long. Slope at 134 is a good test for the 11 to 15 handicap. The views of the New River are very relaxing.

Pete dye is pete dye

What a challenging course to play. The conditions for April were great, the greens were hard and fast and didn’t hold, therefore chipping up the hill was a challenge. Play was slower than I would have expected but not horrible. I would like to play this course again when it is in full bloom.

Nice but bland

Welcomed by congenial staff. Upscale clubhouse with fine restaurant/bar and outdoor seating overlooking the river. Course is wide open and links style with plenty of mounds flanking the fairways. Hardly a tree in play. Fairly straightforward. Layout is bland and hardly memorable. Par 3’s are strong and penal if you miss the green. Greens are perched with plenty of drop off from the edges. Unfortunately, greens have little undulation and does not present much of a challenge once you’re on. Course condition is good but I expected better. Overall pleasant experience but did not excite me to play it again.
