Tough course. Lots of water and bunkers border the landing areas. Long hitters may be able to fly some bunkers but water or natural areas await if you are not accurate. Few straight holes and if they are straight they narrow with trouble on the sides. A challenge for all golfers. Played 8/5/2013 and found the course in good shape. The greens were in good shape and played at a good speed and rolled true. The course is well maintained and as I was the first out there was plenty of activity from course workers. A good value with no issues.

Noise from the interstate is exaggerated. Played with fellow first timers on the course and nobody even mentioned the noise from the road. The greens rolled really nice, but didn't look as nice as they rolled. The fairways are cut VERY tight, almost felt like I was hitting shots off a practice chipping green. Prepare to putt off some fairways into the greens to avoid a chili dip. Would recommend this course to any of my friends if they are in the area. Great value.

I played this course for the fist time today. I liked the course layout. I thought the overall the course was not in good shape, clumps of weeds on the fairways, the fairways were hard, the greens were like concrete. This course has a lot of potential, but needs some TLC. It seems like the management is trying to save $ through less watering and course care. I've played many courses in the area over the past few months and this one was by far the worst.

I have played the course and have found it a reasonable value if you book an online special. But I won't be playing the course again. During my last round, my range finder disappeared in the three minutes between when I left my bag with the cart person, paid greens fees and came to the the cart that was moved by the cart person. I was the second group of the day. It turned out to be a very expensive round.

I have absolutely no idea why people keep building golf courses RIGHT NEXT TO INTERSTATES. The holes are literally 50 yards (check it out on google earth!) away from I-75. Kills the whole experience, no matter how nice the holes may be. Definitely not recommended for golfers who like a quiet experience. Or bring earplugs.

Played this course for the first time today. Thought it was a great course for the price. Water on every hole and some fairways were pretty tight, but still loved the course. Road noise (I-75) on a few holes was no big deal. Will play this course again and again. Staff was very nice and helpful.

The course is in fantastic shape, best greens I've played on all year and it only cost me $20, I don't understand why these other people are making a big deal about the interstate you can only hear cars on one hole and it's not a big deal at all. If you don't play it you're missing out!!!

Course really is a "preserve," with all kinds of birds (including eagles and ospreys) and other wildlife. Play this course a lot and never get bored. Water is in play on every hole -- a shot-maker course. Greens are very good, quick. Fairways are thin.

The course has been bought by new owners and is in great shape right now. The greens are a little slow with the amount of rain we've been getting.

Good Value. New greens this year were great. Very playable. A little noisey being right next to I-75. Nice clubhouse for lunch.
