Played the front nine here on a Saturday morning in the summer (hot day). The course is in good shape and the staff is nice. There are some quirks such as the gnarly bunker left of the green on 3. There was a water bull ever 2-3 holes which helped in the hot day. Also, they have a halfway house but it was not open on June 22, 2013.The pace of play was on the slow side. Bunkers, ditches, water hazards, and some unique sloping make this course a challenge but a must play. Clubhouse seemed nice with ample apparel and supplies. Also, I believe guests pay their sponsors' military rate.

Played a couple of times this month and the course is hard but fun all at the same time. Wish they would cut the greens a little lower. The greens were incredibly slow. Great course for all.

this course is a good challenge, there is not that many hazards, but my golf ball finds them. how come this course kicks my butt? i wish i could get a military pass to play this course more often. it is a good strategy course, it makes you think before you play.

Always a good course to play when looking for a course that 's not too easy but not really difficult to play

Great Course

I haven't been golfing long, but Scott is one of the better maintained courses in the local area. The course has many challenges for both the beginner and those having played longer. The satff is courteous and is always looking for ways to improve your experience and that is from the clubhouse, pro shop, etc. I may play bad but always enjoy their friendly smiles.
