So I'm a bit biased since my dad's a member here and I've played it more than any other course, but it really is a fantastic course. The front nine lulls you into a false sense of security since it doesn't have a par-5, but it's no pushover, with some long par 4s and a blind par 3 up a hill. The back nine is one of the toughest challenges around, with some serious elevation change and the over-water par-3.

The course is always in excellent shape, greens roll nicely, fairways are well kept up, and it's an interesting layout. It's walkable if you're in good shape. All in all a standout course and a great golfing experience.

Tour like conditions, greens are unbelievable.

Fantastic course, one of the states best by far. Great test for high and low hdcp. Layout is fun and challenging and the greens and course conditions are fantastic.
