Played 6/20/2012. Visually intimidating. Smooth fast difficult greens.

Very uptight. No outside snacks or beverages. Overpriced. Choppy greens. No desire to play again.

What a great hidden gem, one of the nicest coursed I have played, went there this oct 2011, perfect conditions. The neat thing about this course is that there is no other fairways coming at you, you can't hit it on another fairway. Definitely will play again....Great time!

The fairways were pretty roomy on most of the holes so overall the faiways are pretty forgiving if you have trouble consistently hitting it straight. We played after it had rained overnight and it drizzled all troughout our round but despite all the water the course drained exceptionally well - soggy but no floods or abundance of casual water. The greens were interesting as they rolled fast despite being wet. I had attended the Barclays and some of the greens at Odessa were reminicent of the contoured and multi-tiered greens at Liberty National. Overall a fun layout and a fun course. A couple of holes were too close to the homes in surrounding development or too close to roads for my taste. A good assortment of tee boxes to accomodate different skill levels yet the risk reward was pretty balanced. Great value at $49 weekend with cart. No Clubhouse yet but it's due to be completed by Fall 2010. I'll be going back.

Played it twice in August, 2008. What a great track, especially for a new course. Lots of guessing required the first time, because of the number of blind shots, but 2nd time was MUCH better. No club house (yet), but I didn't go there for the clubhouse, but for the course, and it exceeded all my expectations
