This course was hammered by the nasty weather we had during May, but still was a fun course to play. The layout is fun, not too difficult, but worthy of a weekend golf date. The older clubhouse is going to be replaced and other upgrades made in the near future, but the old ones are adequate with a snack bar and proshop and a resturant area upstairs. The new nine is growing in well and plays a lot like a links course while the older nine is up and down with tight fairways and water crossings and lots of trees.
