I played this course on a WGANC open day. My home couse is in the mountains, and we have had so much snow this winter, it was such a treat to play such a well manicured course. The change they made adding water between holes 1 and 18 have really added a new challenge to both holes as well as the beautification factor. Would love to play again and again.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Best course in the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
