Hot weather

Great Value

Hot summer day. Course is two distinct nines. The old course is a mostly open back nine with the new course being a tighter, tree lined front nine. Most holes have water in play off of the tee. Fairway and green side bunkers have excellent, soft white sand, not found in a lot of more expensive tracks. Being such a hot dry summer, my only complaint were some tight, dry lies in some spots. Looking forward to it maturing over time.

Great improvement

Course is being well maintained. Current progress in removing Allen limbs, clearing of forest floor have definitely assisted in quicker round. Needed asap - major work on cart path - very bad condition.

Perfect weather

Good Deal

The course is much improved from a couple of years ago. Fairways, greens, sand traps in excellent shape. Interesting enough layout. Greens running very true and presenting some challenge. Clubhouse facilities pretty basic, but of no concern to me. Looks like they're still working on improving cart paths and aesthetics, but again, the course is much improved over what it was the year before last.

Challenged

This course is a challenge to even the most avid player. Lots of water, tight lies and be sure to stay well clear of the fescue. An errand shot is a lost ball 99% of the time. I can see why they retrieve 5000 balls a season!

All in all I feel this is a great value and if I lived closer would consider a membership . The only item I wish they would improve is the bunkers. Very minimal sand and not very challenging to escape from.

Fun and interesting course - keeps you honest.

Pretty good shape considering the drought conditions.

Fairways excellent - greens showing spots of brownout from the weather and recently aerated, but otherwise look to be in pretty good shape.

Will be back.

Don't bother.

This course is in horrible shape. They were sanding the greens and made us stand in the fairway for up to ten minutes at a time while they worked. Tee boxes were rough and had no markers placed. Not worth the trip. Would not recommend playing here.

Great conditions considering the heat

This was a fun course. They have a few odd holes, some blind tee shots, some unmarked bunkers that you can't see.

Fairways were in great condition, as were the greens. Some greens need some attention, however the ball still rolled true.

This was my first time playing the course, you definitely don't need to hit your driver on this course. It is a challenge and you would score better on your second round in my opinion. I will play here again.

Tight Fairways, High Rough or Water Beyond

As mentioned by other reviews, local knowledge is key on this course. Accuracy is also a must - if you stray off the mostly small landing areas you'll find yourself (or more likely not find yourself) in the tall grass or water. Course was in ok condition, a little dry, but greens mostly good. Tee boxes were not though. Guy who checked us in was very chatty, he thinks he's funnier than he is, and some comments might be taken the wrong way, I think he was trying to be friendly/funny so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. Stagnant water on 16 holes makes golf a challenge, but the bigger challenge was avoiding the mosquitoes and deer flies that love the environment. All in all, I've played at worse places and paid more, but I don't think I'll play this one again.

Leave the Driver in the bag

This was our first time playing this course so the lack of course knowledge made it even more difficult than most courses as placement is everything to score well. I only used the Driver a couple of times as most holes call for a 200-230 yard tee shot. The greens were fast and true very nice. The fairway were dry and hard great for the ego they sure could use some water.
