For my level of play which is mid 80 's range I find this course to be somewhat challenging with the many doglegs and blind fairways. There are alot of sand traps, but you dont want in them , its like hitting out of wet cement. The greens are particularly fast which I like, and they have pretty challenging par 3's. Most are at least 170 yards which serves well with a 5 wood off the Blue Tee. Cleanliness of course is always good. But it would be nice if they offered more water jugs on the course to refresh yourself with. Overall I like the course and play it frequently as a local to the area. Although I dont mind travelling to play golf this one suits me fine.
