My entire group loves this course. We come back every year and it is amazing every year. And for whatever reason, it is never busy so the pace of play is whatever you can play it in! We played it this year on a cool day and we were the only ones on the course!!! The layout is challenging yet open. The course is very picturesque with some water, lots of bunkers that are extremely well maintained and beautiful fairways and greens. As I said, we love this course!!! In my opinion, it is the best of the Cats.

Played here 10-16-15 as part of a golf group. This was the second of the "Big Cats" we've hit, and it's better than Lion's Paw in our estimation. First, the cart paths are concrete, and in great repair, so it's a good ride as opposed to the ruined asphalt at LP. The course is very challenging, but the fairways are pretty generous, albeit packed with bunkers (deep ones, too!), and moguls along the edges. Rough gets pretty close aboard on a number of holes: like #9 and 17. Good use of water and sand. Markings on most sprinkler heads, but GPS is almost essential here. One quibble: some of the holes are target golf, with landing areas fronted (and backed) by gunch and/or water. There is nothing to indicate the safe distance to hit. Could make for a slow round! Greens are very large, all are sloped, some heavily contoured, but all hold incoming shots well, and putted medium fast. Green approaches were in good shape, and bump-and-run shots are feasible. Course is not walkable due to distances between holes, and frankly, the routing is very confusing, with long meandering rides from hole-to-hole. Lots of houses adjoin the course, but are not a factor. Staff we met were very friendly and seemed to appreciate our custom. We recommend.
