Fairways and greens in very nice condition. Fast greens. Trees on only 2 holes but fairways lined with tall grass making tee shots a premium. Water comes into several holes. GPS on carts and very friendly staff as well as a large practice area for full swings, bunkers, chipping and putting. Great value for the area. Several leagues available. Slow play on weekends.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy

Nice variety of holes. Primarily a links type course with a few tree-lined holes thrown in. Numerous tall grass "natural areas" that are designated as lateral hazards. Greens were a little on the lumpy side. Staff: check-in, starter, ranger and cart girl all very friendly.

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

I try to play this course at least once a month. It's a nice layout and depending on your skill level you have three tee choices. It's one of my favorites.
