This course looks better than it plays although that is primarily based on the lack of assistance and unfriendly staff. they acted as though they were simply tolerating non members and were doing us a favor by "allowing" us to play their course. If discussing "just the golf course" I'd recommend it and I would like to play it again for that reason only. The "take it or leave it" arrogance displayed by the pro shop, food service, and even outside personnel was a bit off-putting to say the least. Overall, it is a nice course I must say.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area
