It's a shame this course has been allowed to deteriorate. First three holes were so bad, we seriously considered leaving. But as you progress, the scenery is incredible and the hole designs are very unique. Unfortunately, many of the fairways are unkempt and the greens are extremely sandy. When we arrived, we were told hole #3 was closed! No discount for that, though. Cart kept wheezing and coughing; feared we would be stranded. With just a little TLC, this course could be a wonderful experience.

Now owned by John Daly. He has done a great job improving an already good course. Very good fairways, and replacing the marginal bentgrass greens with championship bermuda has been a great improvement.
