I have been playing here a lot recently as it is close to home, and have really been enjoying my rounds. The course superintendent and his staff are doing a great job keeping the leaves off the short grass and surrounding rough. Temperature permitting they have been changing hole locations and rolling the greens, which is more than I would ask for on January 7. Pace of play was about 3 hours for 18 holes.

This course is a great value, and I look forward to many more rounds here this year.

Course was in EXCELLENT shape. Played a few times past year or so and it was average at best. They’ve definitively put some work into the course. Tee boxes were immaculate. Greens were very fast but true. Challenging but fair course. Some elevated tee boxes make for some scenic drives if you hit them well. I’ll be back.

This course offers good value. It is a fun but short course. I would have liked to see more bunkers and the bunkers that exist in better shape. However, the rest of the course looked good and the greens and tee boxes were well kept. Overall I would recommend to a friend.

Tight fairways, undulated greens, and uphill yardages make this course moderately challenging. A true master of their distance and course management will do well here.

Fairways need to be cut more regularly. Rough is good. Like the rough as much as the fairway

This course was in top shape. I have played here many times before, and was shocked by how well it played. Everything was up to par with all other features, and the only negative was a slow pace for the first four holes. The group creating the delayed allowed us to play through on number five. After that, it was clean sailing. The course ranger was friendly and polite, and a joy to talk with on the course. We saw him about 10 times during the round. He was clearly on top of things. A great day of golf.
