This was a nice blend of a 1958 design that was updated in 1994 having conditions that would match any Country Club I've seen. From #1 Tee box to #18 green, sculptured flowing fairways that were mowed tight with heavy thick rough that had the ball dropping to the roots. Then average size rolling greens (8-9) protected by the many well placed, well-kept sand traps making a carry to the green, very importation to scoring. (3 traps / 1 save)

Both 9's (Front 3,249yd / Back 2,953yd) had a good combination of hardwood trees, doglegs, sand traps to be viewed from the tee box that put pressure on club selection and landing area. Not once did I grab the driver, stand up to the tee box and just swing away. This is the sign of a well thought out layout making you think about each shot.

I shot 41/39 w/32putts on this cool Saturday morning ($39)taking 3hrs for my riding partner and me to smoothly move through this "Side by Side" layout but having a distance/separated feeling between the fairways. Normal colored yardage blocks in the fairways but could have used Par 3 blocks on the 210 & 220 par 3's as they were tough to shoot with the range finder.

Memorable hole would be #5 a 518-yard dogleg with many visual sand traps showing themselves while standing over your 2nd & 3rd shots.

Bottom Line... worth stopping and playing a great conditioned older course that will have you thinking on each shot.

Would travel: 30-60 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, Best course in the area
