Greens in excellent condition. Rolling about 12. Pins can be tricky. Back nine seemed more of a challenge. There were 5-6 tee boxes. Played 6500 yd tee box. Course Staff very helpful. Callaway club fitting facility on sight. (Pretty impressive) Indoor driving bays which open to the outside available if cold or rainy or both. Adequate food menu. Hamburgers were grilled and quite large. Very nice outdoor practice range. Separate chipping/sand area. Putting green very representative of the roll on the course. Very picturesque from atop the second tier parking lot. Beautiful scenery! 18 hole putting course was there but not open. A terrace with refreshments overlooks #18 green. Nice place to have a tournament.
