The staff and grounds people have just done a tremendous job. Grounds and restaurant top flight, Course is so difficult with slop rating 132 from whites that you never get bored. River running through many holes give an amazing look to course and difficulty. It is worth the trip and great online prices as well.

Absolutely incredible course. This is a championship course (has been used for Amateur Championship) and the difficulty shows it. The scenery and growth is outstanding. There is a little room for error on many holes though some are very tight and do require accurate shots. Was not able to partake of the clubhouse facilities as tehy were preparing for a member event but it is a very nice facility and will definitely play there again and again and again.
