Temporary damage to 4 greens, but the rest of the course is in great shape. Wonderful layout, lots of tee boxes. Very glad we played even with the green problem. The greens were damaged by a vandal... should be hung by the putter until dry.

I am a member at this course and play it 2 to 3 times a week. I live on the course and enjoy having the course close to home. They keep the course in excellent condition all year.

They course layout and the great condition of the course and the practice facility are the pluses about this course. It got backed up on the last five holes but was going great before that. A great clubhouse. I had to exchange my cart at the turn because it was failing in power for some reason.

Disappointed in the attitude of the staff. They make you feel as if you are beneath them. I love the layout and challenges that the course provides. Plenty of water and hazards to make it a difficult track. The range is great for practice. For this price I would expect a bit more service though. Example, you can't drive the cart to your car, it would be good of them to provide some sort of bag service. This would be a great course for a caddy program as well.

Played it 2 days. Had a great time. No one pushing us, played in less than 3 hrs.

The pro in the pro shop just wasn't very nice. I guess because we go a deal on online discount deal.

Great course... very difficult for the average player - so pace of play tends to be 'slooooowwww' . Great challenge - if players would choose the correct tees to play from, it would speed up play.

Bottom line: I would play again
