Weather was great for a late morning start after a couple of rainy days. Course doesn't seem to drain very well as everything was soft and held. But having ten (10) holes with water coming into play, one must expect this after raining. Played this beautiful layout from the tips at 6,595 yds / 71.2 / 132 with big separation between the side-by-side fairways. Two (2) of the par 5's #4-525yds & #13-593yds are great challenges with the water coming into play on each shot. Shot 43/46 w/ 37putts in 4.5hrs and paid $29.00 including a cart. I know the conditions will be better in the summer by having more roll, but it was great today. Located just off the highway taking about 10 minutes and worth the stop.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area
