Walked 18 hilly holes in less than 3 hrs

Great course, fantastic elevation changes from tee to green. Even open fairways will be challenging with the hills and slopes. Great layout, and a monster of a walk.

Greens were in solid shape, rough was pretty thin, but watch this side hill lies. Would definitely play the course often to tinker with long irons and great pin placement.

Good weather

One of my favorites!

I play here a lot its very close to my house in Somers. Course always in very good condition, staff takes a lot of pride in keeping course in good shape. Only gripe would be that pace of play can get a little slow. Love the layout great mix of holes.
