I've played this course through GolfNow four times this year, each time for less than $25 with cart. Exceptional value. I like that they have Green tees (4500 yards) so that my wife can reach the par-3's and 4's in regulation. As one reviewer wrote, they didn't like the par-5's because of their dogleg design...and they are partially correct. Two of them are like that, and you need to know where to place your tee-shot or second shot if you want to reach the green in 2 or 3 strokes. But I like that they are not just hit two long shots and you're on. You have to place them, rather the hit them long. Fairways and greens are in great shape. I really enjoy this course. And, it wouldn't be right not to mention the restaurant there. Chef Rene's has great food. He just took over this spring, and I've enjoyed several meals there since then.

Nice layout,accomodating staff. I would play this again. Once played you'll know where to approach the greens.

This is a nice course-- good condition, organized staff, good practice area. One irritation of the layout is the par 5's. As I recall each of the par 5s is designed with an abrupt 90 degree turn in the last 100 yards of the hole-- the quick turn is blocked by woods/ high tree or trees. This design feature seems like a lame trick to protect the hole. I believe long hitters should have an opportunity to make the green in two or a "standard" player has a fair chance to put the ball on in regulation.
