Long, narrow fairways demand control off the tee or you'll be wondering "what would Tiger do?" out of the trees. Greens are good-sized and usually well-groomed. The minus is the sand traps are more dirt than sand or are very shallow before hitting hardpan. It's a fun course with a variety of fairways. This course typically has fewer players out than its (nicer) sister course (Creekside), but doesn't nickel and dime you like Creekside does. Green fee rates ($29 W/CART) are fair, but the course occasionally offers specials (Tuesdays $20 w/cart after 11 a.m....but they don't have a plethora of carts either). Nice pro shop, driving range.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

many mature trees and thick rough make staying in the fairway a must. Greens are bumpy and play is usually slow.
