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.

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.
