$16 (cart included), played on Tuesday, August 2017 at 1:15 PM

On vacation in this area and decided to tryout some different course's, so this was the first one. Only had time for nine (9) holes so for $20 w/ cart we played the front 9 @ 2,995yds / 125 slope / Par 36. (Back 9 is 3,287yds / Par 37) I know the yardage is short but with the rolling layout, blind tee/2nd shots, smaller sized/fast greens making it a short challenging layout. Probably finding the excellent conditions from tee to green, full cover rough mowed to correct height, coupled with undulating fast greens will bring you back here again. The holes that stand out the most on the 1st nine are #5 / Par 5 elevated Blue tee box w/hidden green and #4 slanted/fast green. I shot 42 w/19putts and with everyone talking later about how hard it was to read the lighting fast greens. Will put this on my list to return and play the complete 18 hole layout (6,282yds / 70.1 / 125 / Par 73) on this now Public course, with Country Club conditions on this hidden Gem.

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
