Course Reviews


The start of this course is a nice difference from Highlands (the other RTJ Trail course at this site). However the scenery gets kinda redundant being all lowlands without any sand bunkers to provide contrast. Another added detraction was that all the pins were tucked today in very small areas of the greens and the options to get the ball to the greens were limited due to no run up areas.

This course has no bunkers, so it is easy right? Not exactly. I think every hole has one or more water hazards that can make your tee shot tough. This course is also longer than is listed. The back tees (purple) are now over 7k yards. The good news is that there is not very much elevation change, but all of the tees and greens are elevated. You will have a much easier time if you have a lob wedge, or do not miss any of the large greens.

In a little rough shape but at the hottest part of the summer.
From the tips 7700 yds played difficult but the par 3s not as long as card states.
For a RTJ this lay out is great, with the shorter holes having some kind of trouble in front of green.

Played this course last weekend on a company tournament scamble. Difficult course for someone with accuracy issues. Well maintained but I was slightly disappointed by all the RTG hype. Personally the short course has better scenery. I enjoyed the course and I'll play it again someday.

This is a shot makers course. Every green is elevated and 3 clubs different on almost every approach based on pin position. I played my average game but this is not a course for someone just starting out.
