Played this course on a Friday morning @ 8am - sunny & 78F

Excellent course - From the turn into the facility to the end of the round, this place is great. I know it may be a little expensive, but if you enjoy the game of golf and appreciate a challenging course built around great scenery, you must try this facility.

There are 3 separate 9 hole courses that you mix and match to make your 18. We decided to do 9 here because we had another 18 scheduled later in the day somewhere else.

The course plays a little long from the back 2 tees, and is not very forgiving to errant shots. There is plenty of water as the name would suggest, but its not like you have to hit over water every hole or fear a narrow fairway with water on both sides. I think the name actually keeps a lot of people off the course because we were the 2nd pair to tee off by 8am on a Friday. We never saw a group in front of us or behind us...
The holes are immaculate and well layed out with approach shots that will be difficult if you are not sitting in the middle of the fairway or close to it on most holes. The par 3's were not too challenging and actually fun to play - the only complaint I had that morning was that the tee placement on one of the par 3's put you on a slope to tee off... The greens were really nice, and added to the challenge of the course. Pin placement didn't leave much room for error or roll if you chipped on. The greens played rather slow and were about medium softness

I have used the driving range there before, ut not that day. The parking area around the range was under some sort of construction. The range is nice though and fully functional.

The facilities have everything you'd expect from a $100 course. From the bag drop/checkin people to the starters everyone is extremely helpful and go out of their way to talk to you about the course conditions, play of the holes, etc... They do not try to hide the fact that this course will be difficult and encourage you to play the course to your abilities - i.e. do not play the back tees if you inaccurately drive under 250 and carry a handicap above 5... And another nice thing that few courses do anymore, even the expensive ones, is hand out a bag with some tees and a ball mark tool (no ball marker, sorry)

I would definitely play this course and the other 2 that are part of the facility again. I recommend it either for people who have the money to shell out $100 for a round all the time (not me) and for people who have been playing the beat up municipal course all year and want to punctuate or finish their season with a great round in a great setting...
