Poor Value

The course is in reasonable condition but the play was very slow. There are many quirky holes that are poorly laid out. The course is very difficult which significantly contributes to the slow play... many lost balls with players holding up the pace of play. The staff is very unfriendly, some outright rude. In summary, the course is decent but too pricey for what you get. It’s not a good value in my opinion.

Great Conditions, but slow play.

The course is in fabulous shape. Play was slow at 4 hours, 40 minutes. No apparent reason for slow play, all fairways were open. It would have been nice to have a marshall to speed up play.

We enjoy playing here about once a year. Played the Golds for distance and handicap. Some holes are just
not in my wheel house. Course is in good shape.

Worth it

It’s a bit of a hike for me- well over an hours drive, but it’s worth it. The greens were great, and the course was in excellent condition

Great course

We got off early in the morning and didn't wait at all. Terrific layout with some very interesting holes. They were doing some re-sodding and except for a couple of tees the course was in great condition. Greens were in very good condition. We'll definitely play again when were in the area!

Course was worth the hype

I have heard about this course from many people, and driven by and seen it off of I-70 (don't worry the highway noise does not affect the round). Lots of challenges, pretty much every Par 3 has a major elevation drop, which creates some unique challenges, and only one hole with water in play (which of course I put my drive into).

Highly recommend this course, it is a little out of the way for some, but worth it.

This course is worth the drive.

First time here playing and the staff (starter was excellent). Course was in excellent condition and very demanding on where to hit your shots, as golf should be. Loved the long par 3’s. Will definitely make a return trip back.

Just Awesome!!

First time playing this course and WOW what a great course. Would have been better if I would have known the layout. Many blind shots and not sure where to hit the ball. The staff gave us a rundown prior to teeing off, but you forget what they said after the first few holes.

Get out and play this course you will not regret it!

Great Value

Like mentioned before, pro shop was not overly friendly with everybody else was from the starter for the wait staff in the restaurant.
The golf course is is challenging as you want to make it based upon the tees you choose to play them. I played on a day where they had had a tremendous amount of rain the day before so it was cartpath only which makes it much longer to walk because of all the up-and-down. I thought it was challenging however there were a couple tricked up holes. I would certainly play it again if I find myself in the area

Beautiful Course

Have played here 4-5 times and each time is a joy. Usually wait until I can use some discounts due to the price. Challenging course but fair.

Need a Marshall

The course id great and staff are too. The problem is there were two foursomes that backed up entire course and would not let anyone play through. They were playing from the tips without the skills to play from there. They had four groups behind them waiting at the tee box by the time they were off the tee. Oblivious to the other golfers and made for a frustrating day!

Course is in peak form

The course is in great shape right now. Got a bit slowed up behind a 60-person outing, but still a bit under 4 hour round, and seemed like just a nice walk in the park.

Great shape

Course is in great condition. Despite getting 2 inches of rain greens were running 10+. Love the layout, only gripe is a couple of holes could use taller pins - I want to be able to see the flag from the fairway.
