WOW!! This is a trachk worth putting on your list of "Highway" golf stops. Located 7 mintues off I-77 is a best buy for the $26 spent on this under rated golf course. Elevation changes, rolling fairways with fair landing areas and fast true greens made it a challanging afternoon. I did have five, three putt greens because i didn't hit the green in the correct areas. Downfall is the lack of yardage markers and wondering if they were correct. Next time I'll bring the range finder. Houses are far enough back that they don't even feel like they're there. I normally play the tips, but @ 7,000 yds and 200+ to carry the fairway was too much for me.(Blue @ 6,500) Stand on #6 at the back tees and the words, WOW, Holy Sh__! will come out naturally. Looking forward to returning when everything is green and it looks more like the photos. Shot 41/38w/35 putts and will return.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
