Nice day to play ...

Saturday morning round - my time slot was booked but other twosome never showed. Course was moderately busy (sunny, 60's and a bit windy) and walked it in just over 4 hours. Waited for a slow foursome ahead who had no clue about letting a two pass through and no sense of urgency on their part as they were well behind the group ahead of them. Marshal did make the rounds but being a two stuck us between two fours. Greens were excellent as well as rest of the course. Heather was mowed down so less punitive for errant shots.
Great course for walking.

Excellent Experience

I took my son out and this was the first time playing this course. It was in great shape. I played the best 9 holes on front, but the true me showed up on back. The club house looks very nice, but due to the Covid conditions, wasn't able to stay and enjoy what looks to be a very nice facility.

The course was very nice, I really enjoyed playing every hole. I did not like that I felt pressured at every hole with a team or two behind us and two teams in front of us holding everything up. I know it wasn't my fault for holding up the teams however the teams in front of us were very slow and did make it as enjoyable as it should have. I felt that I had to rush through the course. Besides feeling crammed and pressured the course was great.
