Reviewed September 28, 2008

Former 9 hole private club, redesigned to 18 hole course. Nice clubhouse, but I think the amount of play at the course makes it under utilized.

Nicely maintained and very challenging. Greens are surprisingly fast. Many holes require course management, and good shot selection. Most of the greens are not much larger than a postage stamp, making for difficult targets to hit. I think the slope rating is too low for this course. Many fairways are undulating and have uneven lies.
Found the hole routing unusual and at times confusing. Holes seem to criss-cross each other. Long seperation between holes at times, I would not call this course walking friendly for 18 holes.
Aside from 100,150,200 yard markers sprinkler heads are not marked and scorecard provides no hints to hazards.

One of the best and most challenging courses in the area.
Plentiful water stations throughout the course.
Bev cart service was available on this weekened.

$36 for 18 holes a cart on a weekend makes this a good value too.
