Very nice, not too difficult couse. Over seeding almost complete, ready for cooler temps

Greens/tee boxes were the only parts of course that were overseeded, rest was dormant, and fairways were in terrible shape. I was told that this was a temporary issue, since they just changed the type of grass. However, given the condition of the course, I felt the price was stiff: I would pay it for a course in better condition. On the other hand, it has a great layout. I recommend playing it out of snowbird season: I got stuck as a single behind several slow groups who wouldn't let me play through (I had to skip holes) then come back out of order, because the course wasn't that busy. I intend to return next fall and give it another chance: hopefully the fairways will be green.
