Tricky Layout

The course itself was good. There are a few holes that are very tricky and either having course knowledge, or playing with someone who does is almost a must have. Some blind shots make it difficult to know where your landing area should be.

First Time Playing

Challenger

This course was a challenge. I lost a few balls in the woods and water. The poison ivy sucks, so I didn't venture into the woods to far.

No problems

Being the first time I've play this course this year and after all the rain and bad weather, I couldn't of asked for a better place to play. Management has done an excellent job at keeping the course in playable condition.
