From tree-lined and tight (#3) to a wide-open links style (#11), you get quite a variety to keep it interesting and challenging. It is also far from being a flat and boring terrain. The water and bunkers are well placed and encourages even us amateurs to practice course management. The course also takes you through all the clubs in your bag and allows all to "Grip It and Rip It" at times while also requiring finesse to keep us humble. The course itself is only bettered by the awesome staff who are friendly, personal, and a terrific group love the game and their guests.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

This was an outstanding course with an amazingly friendly staff. I drve just under 90 minutes to get there and it was worth every mile. The course has a variety of tee boxes and it definitely can challenge any level of golfer. The staff was probably the best ever. They went out of their way to insure that our experience was memorable. They probably thanked us for making the trip at leaast 5 times. I'd highly recommend this course and will definitely be playing it again!
