Down here on business and this course highly recommended by the locals and I know why. With three (3) nine-hole loops, having five (5) tee box selections, you can pick 18 holes anywhere from 7,000 - 4,800yds.

I chose "Village/School" Blue tees at 3,328yd/3,278yd /71.5/135/Par 36/36. I would recommend playing the School or Mill first and then Village because of the difficulty for forced carries.

The Village (3,561yd) #1 starts right out with an uphill 349yd Par 4 to an elevated green. This will be a familiar design throughout the courses here, uphill shots to elevated greens. Meandering grassy bunkers frame the rolling fairways along with a ravine that raises it's head....many times. The forced carries are raised landing areas, so use your range finders and choose the correct tee boxes. Hole #8 is a Left hand dogleg 380yd Par 4 that requires a 210yd carry from the Blues or face.....rejection. Finishing hole #9 a 521yd Par 5 is uphill all the way and a Par will make the day worthwhile.

The School layout is pretty much the same but with friendlier fairways and no real forced carries from the tees. #1 hole 398yd Par 4 hcp3 mirrors #1 Village being all uphill. The #6 hole a 407yd uphill par 4 is the 1 hcp and if you get inside 200yd marker, you might have a chance at Par. Hole #9 a 546yd Par 5 sets up for a easy Par if you play for the 125yd market. The 100yd marker is on the downhill slope, towards the pond. Enjoyed playing here, even though the fairway grass is dormant and a little soggy from the rain. Greens putted true (8-9) and held all shots with firm sand being playable, though wet.

Ended up shooting 43/39 w/34 putts with Callaway clubs supplied by Keith the starter for free, thanks. The $38.00 spent for this golfing afternoon experience was well spent and you should try it too.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
