Tees, greens, and fairways were in great shape. We played in less than 4 hours. The only negative comment we would have is that there were several blind tee shots on the Hill course, which could use a warning bell.

Nice layout. Challenging greens and several narrow fairways. Plays well for all skill levels

Wish ranger was available to keep pace if play up. Foursome in front of us was 2 holes behind closest group and wouldn’t let anyone pass. Needed a ranger to take control.

Snack bar not open on the course. Cart girl didn’t show up till late in round.

The Hill Course was an excellent challenge. I have played the lower course before but this as my first time playing up top and it did not disappoint.

If you hit good shots you can score (if you are a decent putter). If you hit poor shots, you are punished...sometimes severely but fairly.

Get out here and play as soon as you can. Enjoy fall golf at its finest.

Very hot day and we saw the cart girl on #1 and never saw her again. On this course you do not make the turn at the clubhouse and there were few vending machines to purchase any water.

Decent track but on hot days the course management should take care of their playing public.

The course is beautiful, but since we played the Hill course, because the Lake course was closed for aeration, it was painfully slow. I think 4:45 for 18 holes is sad!!

Played here numerous times and never had an issue like this. There were 5 groups....yes 5 groups waiting to hit on the par 3 7th hole 178 yards. They had a ranger but he was no where to be found. We quit after 9 holes, went into the pro shop telling them very pleasantly of the major backup and that we couldn't be out here all day. Not a word was said ...no offer of a 9 hole refund...nothing. We felt like they could care less. Extremely disappointing

It's a shame when a foursome won't let a twosome play through. We played the front nine in 1:15, but then caught a foursome who refused to wave us thru and watch one guy take a nine on a par 3! Still a great day, though.

This course is one of my favorites for handicapper between 10-20. If you don't hit the fairway all the time but maybe miss by a little you can still score on this course. If you miss it by a lot, you will get penalized for sure but it is a super fair course. There are lots of trees and lots of Hills (hence the name of the course) but even for someone who doesnt hit it 300yds off the tee the Par 5s can be reached in two if you can hit the fairway and hit a good 2nd shot. Get ready to be creative on several holes on the back 9. Fun course if you can score a deal on the greens fees. During the local vacation season it is extremely steep for local golf but if you can play it for $40 or less jump on it.

This is a excellent course. It has a great layout, the conditioning could not have been better, the greens rolled smooth, true, and were pretty fast. It is a first class layout with some, but not too many bunkers that had nice, fresh, soft sand in them. All in all, it was a great deal to play a quality layout.
