new management is doing a good job fixing many problems on this course. greens have just been redone and are still a little bumpy. bunkers still need a lot of work. it is a good design. hit your driver constantly well about 240 to 270 yards and you will be rewarded. longer hitters should just use a 3 wood. most of this course is in a heavily wooded area and runs along a busy boat and jetski lake area. there are 2 blind shots areas, so drive up drive up before you hit. it is an interesting course and could be a gem if properly maintained.

I can't believe the condition of this course..the fairways were awful, the green horrid and the sand was a joke (like hitting out of concrete). I would consider playing this course again for about $15 at most, but probably won't unless they do some serious maintenance...really a shame as it sits along a gorgeous lake and the layout was awesome.

Quite difficult and frustrating for first timers because of blind drives, hills and valleys, blind hazzards, and some narrow fairways. Mature trees line the fairway and come into play. Greens roll well, not too slow or too fast, but some greens are undulating or has significant slopes, so ball positioning is key to avoid three putts. Less frustrating and more enjoyable if you play with someone who can give you guidance or direction regarding the course layout. Course maintenance is somewhat inconsistent but generally OK. Some days are better than others. Amenities are very basic with friendly staff. Overall, fun and challenging course and green fees are very affordable.
