Good course with moderate challenge, and is usually not too crowded, so play does not drag.

Played on a Friday Noon. Nicely kept County run course. Wide fairways and ample runoff areas. Tee boxes were pretty good, decent shape and fairly smooth. Fairways were in good condition, rarely in a poor surface. With the recent drought, off fairway areas were very dry and hard..don't hit it there. Sand traps were a bit disappointing, they used a sand gravel mix and they were in dire need of additional sand. Greens were very nice, firm surface (a ball mark with a full 9-iron was about 1/2-ball depth), medium quick, but consistent and fair. I played from the whites per request from all 3 of my partners, and many holes were a short wedge to play in.
