Greens and fairways in great shape. Mowing staff was extremely courtious, stopping to allow players to proceed before restarting their engines. New clubhouse is beautiful and functional. Good bar menu for 18th hole.

Best course I have ever played. Better than Pinehurst #4,8; Treyburn CC, Carolina CC, Heritage GC, Eastlake CC. Very scenic. The food was phenomenal.
