It must have been a dry winter as the greens and fairways were rock hard. Also, the pro shop really has a very limited selection of products.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Average course for the area

The greens are soooooo fast and hard it was very very furstating and almost ruins the play. Other than that it is a good course but the green are pretty important. I do not wish to return for a long time.

This is a very nice course. The greens are some of the best I've ever played. The fairways are a little dry this summer. But those greens are so so nice...

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

Best greens for miles, early AM pace of play is excellent, sea level elevation makes it play longer than scorecard, has great views, handles wind and rain well. Stay below the hole or some pins will make you pay.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
