Course in excellent shapre from tee box through greens. The course is challenging (but fair) and interesting. Even though it is surrounded by (very nice) homes, it is a pretty track. Mid afternoon weekday we played at our own pace and hardly waited to play a shot. I played as a guest but know the course is fairly expensive. Definitely one of the two finest courses in the area.
