Played this course on a UnderPar coupon where two people can play all day for about $118 each. When I bought the UnderPar it was worded vaguely and it appeared we could play both the Champions and Legends course on the same day.

We found out later that they reserve one course per day for the members. This is great for members. For nonmembers, you have to repeat the same course if you wanted a replay. (I have now noticed the language is cleaned up on the UnderPar). It ended up being too crowded to repeat - so, oh well, only got in one round.

As for the course, the layout and the greens were great with quality bunkers. The fairways were decent but thin in places. Lots of lakes on the Champions course makes for a real challenging layout. However, it seemed that they had too many dogleg right holes with a lake at the corner.

As a resort course, I understand the higher rates but a more reasonable rate for locals would be nice. The staff was courteous and professional.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Better than average course for the area
