Impressed

A premier golf course. It’s a beautiful course, the staff was excellent to work with. I never take pictures on a golf course, but did so this round. (Missed the deer crossing in front of us)
Afterwards you couldn’t ask for a better bar and restaurant. The staff and bartender were great, and so was the food.

First Time Playing

this course can get very challenging.

Unfortunately we had some bad weather today and we didn’t really experience how fast the green can be!! The golf course doesn’t play very long but it can be very challenging, You definitely have to bring your A game and be able to shape shots both ways. I’ll definitely come back and play this golf course on a better day. Ps. Also great customer service in the clubhouse and the dining area very welcoming.

It is a beautiful course! The greens were a little hard to figure out! Most of them were slow...but hit and miss...when you would hit the ball more firm...then that green would play fast...go figure! Alot of the ball washers didn't have water in them, and alot of the holes didn't have any water to drink, like they normally do! When we came back to the clubhouse they didn't have anything to eat as far as sandwiches or hotdogs...said it would be 15 to 20 minutes to prepare! No Gatorade...and no candy or energy bars to give you a boost to play the last nine! All in all it's a great place to play golf!

Nice course, too early in the season

This course is out of the way but worth the drive if you are in the area. Nice clubhouse, interesting layout set in rolling hills with woods and long-range vistas. The premises have a country-club feel and appear to be dominated by local members who respect the facilities. The layout is challenging, and I would not recommend this course for less experienced players. The staff treated us very well. The weather was near perfect for April, and the course was fairly empty, even for a weekday. Our only concern would be course conditions. Being so early in the season, the greens were not yet awake, making putts extremely slow. This is no fault of the course keepers given the late arrival of Spring this year. We would definitely play here again.

For four holes the grass cutter was cutting the fairways while we were trying to golf, very disturbing!

Great course friendly & helpful staff!

This was the best course we played all year! That being said we golfed on Nov. 29th so in the spring early fall the course would be even better. The fairways were clear of leaves and the greens were clear of debris. Will definitely come back here next year!
