Greens were great! The fairways were very hard and had very little green grass. The course is fair over-all and a good challange. It is out in the middle of nowhere and takes longer to get to than you think it will. It was a good value when we played. (may go up from $40 price that we payed on Feb. 3) It was very crowded the day we played and round took too long due to congestion. Food and drinks were expensive.


This track is out of the way and not worth the trip. The layout and scenary is great, but needs alot of work. The greens were very bad, with some totally burnt and down to dirt! Clubhouse is a dump! Don't believe the write-up in Golfguide. It's too bad, since the course has potential.

Played the course in early Oct, 2007. YTD rainfall about 20" below average. Greens so so but slow, fairways, bunkers were VG. 18H w/ a cart cost $36 AM and 25 PM, what the hell do you want? it was still a solid 3 star course at the time I played it and probably 4 star in prime time (winter).

Great wildlife. Great Course and not too busy because it's a little out of the way. I'm a local and it's one of my favorites! Course was bad in 06 and early 07 but great now.

Great value,well maintained,friendly staff.
Fun to play. I will return and recommend to friends.
