Course Reviews


I found the course to be very repetative with nearly every hole being a dogleg left. Besides this very nice course in great shape, with beautiful views of lake.

Played this one during our trek to the RTJ Trail (see Lakes course review). In short, a resort style golf course in excellent condition. I used every iron shot I have (7 hcp) during my round. The beverage cart was well stocked and rounded the course often. Unfortunately, like the Lakes Course, pace of play a distraction (5 hours). Marshals ineffective. Would be a five star overall rating if pace of play was better.

Links Course

Note* Make sure you use the bag drop off or you will have to carry your clubs (100+yds) from the parking lot. The carts are not allowed in the parking area.

This course is one of the finest I (18 hdcp) have played. Everything I can think of was nice, the club house, bathrooms, carts (with mega-GPS), as well as the course itself. They even had a "cold towel" guy that came around like the cart girls and handed out ICE COLD wet towels......SWEET!

Every hole has its own personality. There are plenty of bumps and hills all over the Links style fairways. There are plenty of strategicly located bunkers on the fairways as well as protecting the greens. Water comes into play on a bunch of holes.

This course allows you to select your shots on a hole by hole basis. Depending on where you place your shots, you can either shave a stroke off the hole or end up with a double bogey. The holes are very fair but can punish sloppy play.

The greens are also fair but dont look for flat circles.

Overall a very nice day of golf awaits you.....
