Played this last year, really improved fairway conditions. Greens are great... enjoyed it enough, we stayed over and played again. Signage is poor, look on the cart path for directions to the next tee..

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

This is a really fun course, but especially hard to find the next tee box after playing the green. Good course, target golf, play the uphill side of rolling fairways. Actually has very fair landing areas, just they are often hidden or look small from tee area. I will play here again.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Fun course but poorly signed. We spent a lot of time trying to find fairways and tee boxes due to confusing lay out.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again
