The course was phenomenal! Conditions were excellent, and the staff are very friendly and accomodating. Greens were a little fast when we played, and the rough can be challenging around the green. All in all, great bang for buck!

Course was in good condition for late October. Fairways and rough was lush. Greens in good condition. Bring your earplugs, this is the loudest golf course ever. Power plant roars and jets fly overhead. Not much in visuals.

I was pretty disappointed with paying a $100 for a course that only played 6300 yds from the men's standard tees and had power lines in play. Even worse a fair amount of that yardage was in a couple of par 4s that played nearly 500 yards. The rest of the par 4s were not enough of a challenge.

Greens were very fast and the course was playing close to a 1/4 club short, very soft! Very few lies were even. If you are looking to work on your uneven lie game, this is the place for you! Would play again.

Course was in great shape. Beautiful layout with all of the college sporting facilities in the background. My only beef was that it was playing very slow. Can we get a marshall please. Greens putted true and quick. Would not hesitate to go back.

Green every where, Undulating hills. If you are off the fairway, you are on an uneven lie. Challenging for everyone. Highly Recommended!
