This is a very challenging course that requires all shots. Very good course for good to very good players. Layout includes lots of elevation changes (both up and down) as well as several doglegs (both directions). A very fun course to play.

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