Scenic views. Challenging course.

Beautiful, well maintained course. The first 9 holes are more narrow. It opens up in the back nine. The staff was super friendly. We will definitely return!

Great conditions and plush carts

Really nice course - in absolutely great condition (minus a few tee boxes). Course is REALLY spread out - lots of driving between holes at times. Beautiful scenery but some road noise from nearby interstate On some holes is a bit annoying. Nicest carts I’ve ever used - GPS, Bluetooth radio, super comfy.

Course was in great condition. Pace of play was excellent. It was a playable course. Tough, but forced carries etc were not over the top.

Tough Course with Amazing Views

Really tough Jack Nicklaus course with lots of elevation changes and some tight fairways. If you're not a low handicapper, be prepared to lose some golf balls. But the course is in great shape with mountain views all around. Both times I've played here, the service was pretty poor, especially when trying to get food/drinks at the turn. They seem to be very disorganized. Otherwise, I highly recommend this course for the experience, even though it's a bit pricey. I would make the 2.5 hour drive to play here again.

Great Customer Service

The Course Was in Fantastic shape, the Greens had been aerated, they were still very fast and smooth. Pete in The Pro Shop was Fantastic, Professional , Polite. And Friendly. The Front Side is tougher than the back because it’s Tighter. The Back Opens up More but there’s still Plenty enough there to challenge a single digit handicapper. Our group was pleased and had a great time and well definitely be back.......Thanks Pete...!!!

Course

The course was in pretty bad shape! Mowing needed done and the greens needed rolled or mowed! They also let too many twosomes and singles out and wont try to match them up

Not Impressed

First time here and first time for a Nicklaus design course. I hope the course condition and NOT the designer is the reason foe this rating..
The course condition was TERRIBLE. I play Fri 8/23 and Sa8/24. I can be absolutely sire the fairways and greens were NOT cut for those 2 days at least! The greens were VERY sparse with multiple dead patches. The USGA would not play rough that long and juicy. I would NOT lay again nor advise anyone else to waste their money. Overly aggressive rangers!

HORRIBLE PACE

Very nice people at the shop. Ranger complaining about us riding on the rough, but won’t do anything about some people taking forever to finish a hole. Pace of play was horrible. Not the case all the time, but this specific outing was bad. Rangers need to work on that.
