This is a very nice course; however, there needs to be a lot of maintenance done. They seem to have a problem with their irrigation system and there is a lot of very wet areas where there shouldn't be.

Great place to practice/ learn/ play easy

Love playing this course. Not tough to walk in the later afternoons, and the hilly parts are worth it for fun shots. Pace can get slow, but it is a wonderful course to be stuck on and usually in great condition. Will always try and play here when I can get an after 4pm tee time.

Amazing course for any golfer!

Took my boyfriend here for his birthday as I am a beginner and wanted to both enjoy our time and we had a blast. The course was stunning with beautiful views and easy to play but still challenging enough. I recommend it to anyone!

Best Short Course

There’s a reason Golf Advisor rated this track #22 in their Top 100 Short Golf Courses in North America and the British Isles. Actually it’s a number of reasons.

Great, affordable course. Strange cart rules.

Love this course. Very nice, affordable and well kept. Only thing that was strange is they make carts come in at 7:45pm. We were forced to return our cart mid round, on the 14th hole all the way to the clubhouse. A little disappointing but would still play again!

Always a Good Time

Best executive course in the county. Great layout, excellent greens, and the new clubhouse is the cherry on top. Best way for an avid golfer to spend three hours.
