This is a course I play quite a bit. It is close and very playable. Sometimes, I just want to go out for a round of golf that I won't feel like I got beat up for 18 holes. I agree with other reviews about being the go to course when others are cart path only and the carts need to be replaced. Also, they make great Bloody Mary's.

There are lots of elevation changes on many holes. On doglegs have to hit well away from the dogleg. If you don't, the slope of the fairway can very well carry the ball into a position where it's difficult to advance the ball without turning and/or keeping it low. Fairways could use some improvement.

Greens had many undulations and reasonably fast. Similar to the fairways, if you're not careful around the green the ball can roll a long way from the cup. Greens were in very good condition.

Not a long course and seems to play less than posted yardage and many holes.

Lots of good scenic views

Hadn't played the course in quite some time, so I wasn't familiar with the distances to attempt to hit shots on numerous holes. Number of blind type, dogleg shots. Course was in okay condition. Tee boxes needed some work. Overall, I would rather play Columbia Bridges, which is the sister course.

"Up, down, rolling, water, slanted fairways and 90 degree doglegs provided a challenging course."

Course in good shape, fun to play. Club house was just an old house but the course was fun and the staff was great. Everything could be considered moderate. THe beautiful day and the scenery added to a challenging course. A good golf choice anytime.

We play Columbia as our default, go-to course. When others are "cart path only", Columbia manages to allow carts on fairways. There is a wide variety of hole features with enough trees, water, narrowness, elevation changes and lengths of hole to challenge all abilities. They manage to keep the course in fairly good shape throughout the year..
