The course is not terribly long, but the greens make one putt well in order to score. There are few traps, but the creek crosses several fairways. It has a way of collecting balls. Also, missing the fairway can cost one dearly if you wind up in the woods or down a slope. On most holes, it is better to be short rather than too long. Best is in the center of the green. Number 4 is being changed to a par 4 which will still need a carry over the creek. A new clubhouse is under construction with pro shop. Several tees are also being reconstructed.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Great mountain views. Normal amount of water, bunkers. Many holes require precision shots. Very hilly course, but very attractive.
