This is a hilly course with tree-lined fairways that are bordered by a standard cut of rough. The postage stamp-sized greens are slightly sloped and fast. Numerous very large sand bunkers protect the fairways and greens. Water hazards come into play on at least half the holes.
It was a sad day on the January 31, 2016. On that date, the course owner announced that lack of play made it not viable to continue operations and that the course would not open in 2016.

Played through 11 holes only due to heavy rain washing out round. Front nine was recently aerated so it wasn't fair to judge the speed or breaks found on the greens based only on the two back nine holes. Course layout was very nice. Doglegs, streams and some blind shots were apparent throughout what I played. A shorter course that may take the driver out of a long hitters hand on some holes. Small greens that are protected by bunkers and woods/rough put a premium on shot accuracy. Terrain was hilly and many holes had tricky sight lines that fooled the eye as to distance required for a particular shot. I will return to play again and not just because of a 9 hole rain check. A pleasant course.
