Went in late September 2010. 1/3 of the fairways were roped off. I could see how this course has a good reputation but when I was there it was nothing more than a construction site. The layout is a bit goofy too, had a hard time finding 2 holes. WIll give it another chance but it did not stand up to its reputation.

I hate to rain on the previous post, but I would not recommend this course to anyone. I'm not fond of courses with homes surrounding the holes. Several holes had no character at all. Plenty of other good courses to play.

This is my home course and I always enjoy playing it. It can play many different ways which makes it even more fun. Come the day after it rains and it will play pretty easy but if you come out on a day when the wind is whipping it becomes a real challenge. They tend to have some ridiculous pin locations on some days though. I've seen at least a half dozen times on hole 2 where the hole was cut into the ridge on the front half and it was LITERALLY impossible to get it closer than 6 feet unless you made it. The clubhouse is nice and the owners and managers are normally friendly. The biggest thing is the value compared to the rest of the courses within 45 miles. Every course I've played that has similar quality facilities costs at least 60+ dollars to play a round. Here I can tee it up at 1:30 for 29 bucks. Definitely a hidden gem around here.

P.S. This course is 15 years old and seems to be maturing nicely. I'd imagine in 5-10 years or so the cat will be out of the bag on this course.

Great course! This course has everything you want in a golf course.Also has some very hard holes. Great value and always in good shape. Only draw back is if it is windy,bring your A+++++ game.

Very Good play from start to finish. I've played this course many times because of the exceptional value. Kept in very good condition all year long. This course plays with the natural habitat of prairie grass and a lot of it. This is a must play at a good price for the area.
