Can't beat the price. Tee boxes and greens are in great shape. The fairways need work. Excellent staff, very friendly.

Lived in SD for 35 years...heard about this little course from time to time. Always wondered. Kind of an obscure location, but easy enough to navigate.

Have to say, everyone; everyone, staff, other players, in/out of shop were very friendly. Like being at a small, midwestern course...actually was a very pleasant.

Course fairways in mediocre shape....dry, but playing Winter rules alleviated 90% of issue. Fun, little layout. Greens recently punched, but pretty decent. Can tell they would ‘normally’ be quick, challenging.

Simply put, a great value for the $$....keeping that in mind, you will have a nice time

This a bit of secret jewel. On the surface, it appears to be a pretty straight forward layout, but the greens are tiny and fast. Tee boxes need some attention.

Short but challenging course that winds through a narrow canyon with creek offering ever present obstacle and sloping fairways. Greens in good condition and difficult to read. Good value and practice for short game, bring extra balls!

Always a fun course to play. Some dry areas, but most were not in play.

Greens were fast, as usual, some front pins were almost unfair if you didn't have local knowledge. The starter warned us.

Always backs up around the fifth hole, but clears out by 8 or 9. Tough stretch for those who haven't played before.

Normally plays in 3-4 hour range. today at mid-day was 3 1/2.

Mostly 7s and 9s off the tee but a couple of long ones ... many fairways are narrow so AIM is important ... some interesting holes up and down hills ... very fun and friendly staff, will definitely return.
