Course was beautiful and in great shape. Fairways are pretty narrow (I lost several balls). Hole locations were difficult. Seemed like a lot of slope on greens. Overall great experience. It is a long drive for me but worth it.

The course had a great layout following the contours of the land. It was a little dry, but they were working on the irrigation system, expecting that to improve. Overall a fun course to play.

I was not overly impressed, maybe too early in the season, but my Work buddy’s said it’s a must play. I will definitely be back with my foursome this summer, coming from Nashville.

Course was still semi wet from the big rains in April.

Not an extremely difficult course if you’re hitting well, greens were good and pretty fast. Pin placements can certainly determine difficulty, several tee boxes for all levels.

Scenery was nice but I know it will be beautiful, tight and fast in the coming months.

Definitely recommend but don’t go alone like I did, get your 4some together and enjoy!

Hard to believe 63 degree weather in February but we had it! After several weeks of rain the course was wet but the greens were excellent! Holding and yet still smooth and fast. Probably Rolling a 9-10. Even with cart paths only we finished in just under 4 hours. It is ashams this course isn't closer to I-40 because it would be covered with players if it was a little closer.

The fairways are in winter condition, the greens were well maintained and green. It's been a while since I played here. This course is a challenge for all levels of golfers. The groups were crowded because of a 3 some that slowed everyone behind them up. The scorecard and tee markers didn't match up to the homes on most of the holes. The 1st hole on the scorecard shows to be a part 5 but is actually a par 4. The problem appeared to be the markers for the different boxes( blue, white, red etc) we're misplaced. I recommend this course to test your skills. Check the yardages though.

Staff very unconcerned. Did not even have hotdogs. Played one day and asked for rental clubs next day. But mgr out and laying with no concern about us waiting on prepaid tee time We also we’re plsying behind pro/mgr foursome and they didn’t offer us a twosome to go thru Golf course pretty but brutal for average golfer. I have probably never played a more difficult course even though it was pretty

Had a blast. Challenging layout and very fast greens. They were having their Fall Festivsl while we were there. No big deal except you could hear the band playing from almost every hole. Also had a tractor pulling a hay ride wagon ride up the fairway behind us while while we were chipping onto a green. Not a problem but certainly nothing I’ve had happen before.

I’ll definitely come back.

Scenic, challenging layout and greens, especially first time around. Course condition was overall good, only exception was the tees, quite rough, but can always find a spot. Friendly and accommodating staff, if you haven’t played this diamond in the rough, play it, great value on Golf Now, worth the drive.

I have played here 3 or 4 times and each time I think the course conditions get worse. Greens are hard as a brick and bumpy, scorecards were printed on printer paper, fairways are mowed so low and so hard its like hitting off cement. Alot of unplayable lies if u don't hit the hard fairways. Honestly just not a well thought out design. Assuming this was Peter Jacobsens only course design cuz it isn't all that great. Has changed owners so many times for a reason.

Played a great 70* February round in shorts from the tips. Course is a great challenge for any level golfer. With 5 sets of tees on each hole a player or group can select the correct tees for there game and enjoy. This Hidden Gem Has just recently come under new ownership and the owners are pumping the $$$ into the course and club house amenities. We were able to stay in The Villas and the rooms are awesome. We will be returning with a larger group soon!!!
