Play there 6 or 7 times a year. This course is challenging and in good shape. Not a good day for golf because it was cold but I got in 18 holes and it was well worth it.

Pace of play was great - 3 some played in 3 hours 15 minutes

While the greens were a little slow they rolled true

Tee boxes were in good condition

Fairways I. Good condition

Bunkers had a little too much sand

It is April 8 and i would say for the time of year and with the winter we had the overall condition would be 9 of 10

Always a good value

This is my second time playing this course and this course has a mix of everything more than most courses I've played in regards to the different variety of holes that are risk/reward and challenging enough. Bunkers are strategically placed and there are some flyover water holes 10, 17 & 18. Hole #2 is a challenging par 5 that requires a precise shot as there is water all around it. The only issue I had was that sand was all over the greens which made it challenging for putting. All in all this is a great course that I will play over again.

Got a nice deal on GN; as a single, when I got theee they told me I was paying alone behind 2 twosomes. I played thru one of them, the other was jumping holes. Passed through another 4some before playing the last 6 behind a threesome that was insistent that wasn’t passing them even tho there were 3 open holes in front. Hard to play a nice round with this chaos , will be a long time til I go back, another case of a course losing control of their course
