We called ahead and specifically asked if we could get the round of golf in with our starting tee time at 3:10 pm. Sunset was at 7:08 pm. The woman in the pro shop said no problem. When we got to the 4th hole, there was a elder twosome in front of us , playing from the front tees. They hadn't teed off yet. A foursome was in the middle of the fairway. We already passed through a group with 5 golfers, yes 5. They were walking. They were very nice and let us though on number 2. We decided to quit, knowing we couldn't finish by sunset. We went to the pro shop and expressed our concern after being told finishing by sunset was " no problem ". The guy in the pro shop was insistent that we would have finished by sunset and offered a prorated " rain check ". I will go back for our prorated " rain check " but will not play here again due to principal. She wasn't clear with us from the start. A simple, I'm sorry and a full " rain check " was all we needed. Thanks for listening.

This course is in amazing condition in October. The scenery is great with all the color of the seasonal change. The course can be difficult, as it has many uneven lies and blind shots. I highly recommend this course to anyone in the area!

Not many flat lies on this course, lots of hills. Plays really difficult the first time through. Always a challenge. Many holes where driver is not the best club off the tee. Course maintained in excellent condition.

Quite possibly the best kept secret in Delaware. Not a long course, but definitely very challenging. The course is absolutely beautiful, and the amenities are excellent. When the leaves start to change color in fall, there is no more beautiful course in Delaware open to the public.

This course has plenty of elevation changes for you. It's a pretty good layout with a few really nice holes. Nothing too overwhelming. 10th hole dog-leg left par 5 has a hidden pond on the left side off the elavated tee. The greens were in great shape, not very fast though but rolled true. This is a really nice course I will be back.
