First of the four (4) courses we'll be playing in this area. Decided to play from the tips 6,803yds / 72.1 / 129 and wished later I played the Whites @ 6,208yds because of the landing areas. Great yardage book with marked sprinkler heads give very accurate readings to the non-typical shaped greens as I learned to aim for the middle. Most fairways are not forgiving when missed and I would put them on the narrow side for our Blue landing areas. Smooth greens, great sand with a mix of water on about half of the holes coming into play. Shot 46/47 w/ 30putts (4hrs)as the driver strayed today and I paid the price. Highlight was son, Barry on #15/394yd/Par 4, missed drive, topped 3W then the 4I and THEN slam dunked the 9I in the hole, for a par. (Gotta love this game) Great layout and price to put on your places to play if your in this area.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Ranks with the best in this price level
