This course hasn't improved since the initial reviews in 2007. I can't believe how horrible the conditions are.

DO NOT GO to this course.
Their website advertises this course as a Palmer design course, and yet Palmer Design's website doesn't list this as one of his courses....hmmm?

The cart paths still aren't done. We found weeds growing on the tee boxes that were taller than the tee box markers. Fairways that were more dirt than grass, and other spots where the lawnmower left nice lines of clippings all through the fairway. And the greens...they were like playing on shag carpeting. Incase you don't believe me. here's a link to the pictures we took less than 2 weeks ago.

Getting There

Really nice layout, new and rough around the edges but worth a play. Challenging holes, beautiful scenery. Lots of bunkers, not a lot of water in play. Clubhouse nearly finished (April 2007), cart paths not paved yet, a bumpy ride. Will be great in 3 years.

Go find this Course

This course is worth the effort to find. Great new course at exceptional value. Some rough edges because it is new. Club house is not finished (November 2006). Great design that uses the natural hills and landscape wonderfully. Challenging yet fair, large bent grass greens. Lots of character to this course.
