Unbelievable 30 mile view from 9th hole on Mountain Course. Severe topography and elevation changes adds to beauty of course. Shorter than other 18 but more challenging target golf. Houses are tucked into woods and not as visible from course as on lower 18.

Would travel: 120-300 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
