Despite some wet conditons on some fairways a fairly competitive course. I enjuyed it very much.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

This course has some very scenic views and is in good condition. It is a very hilly course and you are required to take a cart at most times (for good reason). There are some blind shots and the course is tight in areas. This leads to players spending time searching for lost balls which does slow down the pace of play. I have played this course a couple of times and the average round is around 5 hours on a weekend. Be prepared to deal with multiple uneven lies throughout your round. The course does offer some interesting holes with the elevation changes. Overall this is an average course that is worth playing

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area
