Hidden Beauty

This course is a real challenge! I like hard courses even if I don't score particularly well.... Lots of scenery, but if 470 yard par 4's aren't your cup of tea, play from the front tees!

Nice Old Style Course

Front 9 is kinda boring but back 9 has much more interest. Small elevated greens in great shape. Holes and tee boxes quite close together. Nice staff and very fair price when purchasing thru Teeoff

Neglected

Had good memories of this course that I hadn’t played in 30+ years. Unfortunately, course was a major disappointment. The fairways were terrible, looked like they hadn’t been cut in days. So almost no roll-out off the tee. And the layout/tees is terrible for seniors - either 6200 or 5300 yards. The 6200 yard course had par 4’s of 415, 432 and 472 yards, and they were not downhill. No rangers, slow group ahead made it an almost 5 hour round.

On positive side, greens were well maintained, but slow, and the views were nice.

Too many other good courses around to justify a return.

Beautiful Course

Loved playing this course and would definitely play again. My only issue is how close the greens and other tee boxes are.

Enjoyed the course. Couldn"t see the greens on many holes -- lots of blind shots. A great deal of sand. Picturesque holes.

Beautiful Course In Lake County

An absolute beautiful and well maintained course. Not many doglegs as most holes are straight but still challenging with very tight and narrow fairways. The greens are kind of difficult which is a great challenge to avoid a 3 putt!

Excellent Course

I like the clear plastic shield the golf cart had to keep us safe during these difficult times. The greens were in great condition and so much fun to play.

Good course for a cheap price

Booked a "Hot" tee time. Great value, clean course. They were doing some cutting while I played, and it was a little swampy (It poured last night) but overall a good course. I would definitely play there again.
