This is a great course to go if you just want a nice relaxing round. Some very nice holes with scenic elevation changes.Front nine a nice easy par 32, back nine more challenging par 38. Give it a try, I think you'll like it!

Course is butchered due ro redesign. Makes for incosistent layout from whites creating really short holes. Tee boxes are intimidating even.from blues. Landing areas challenging. Prior course knowledge a plus. Leave driver in bag for most. Course is work in progress. Greens and fairways in good condition. Great value.

Enjoyed the round. The owners have been working very hard it seems, to create a quality course. Greens were in excellent condition, and the fairways played well. Need to keep it straight. Many narrow holes, and lots of opportunities for lost balls if you don't. Pretty much my home course. Give it a try.

Staff was friendly, but there was no ranger and a very slow foursome in front of us, who did not let us through until the 13th hole. There was no one in front of them for the rest of the nine holes.

Fairways were in good shape; tee boxes and first cut of rough were shaggy; no sand in the bunkers; greens were in very good shape, but quite slow.

Food and bar were very good..

I booked a threesome last week and when I showed up to the course, they informed me that someone was going to fill our 1 leftover spot. This is normal, what isn't normal is telling me that the extra person is riding in my cart, not a separate cart. So I got stuck the whole round sharing a cart with someone I didn't know when they had 12 carts there not being used. Horrible management. I have played here for years but won't be back after this owner change. Ultimately the cheapest move I have ever seen from golf course management.

I think we got lucky with a foggy morning, there wasn’t anyone close to us. I didn’t bring a jacket so the guy in the pro shop let me borrow one. Everyone’s just really nice there, and the course plays better the 2nd time when you know the layout.

First time playing this course and thank God we were paired we 2 others that had played it many times.... Course is narrow with alot of blind shots.... All the natural vegetation which is on every hole should be played as a lateral hazard and not a lost ball... In my opinion its just to narrow to play all the vegetation as list ball territory....

Right now Ideal great rolling greens and the fairways have grass from all the rain. The rough is 2-3 inches deep with clover patches providing some resistance and hidden balls. Watch! Great course for target golf as many fairways slope to one side. The mature oak trees make this course quite scenic, and on a few holes overhang a bit. Helps to use less than driver off some tees to keep in short grass. When in doubt, on approach, take an extra club. Some elevated greens have fronts with grabby grass. Shorter length of course still provides interesting challenges.
