Challenging course. Well groomed. Great staff.
Only negative is the advertisement and tee time I clicked on to set up play said cart included.
Unfortunately, I had to pay $10.00 for each cart. Cart WAS NOT included. At $4.16 /mo for your subscription, maybe you should credit me for 5 months or send me $20.00.
If you send me an email, I will send you my address to send the check.

This is a gem of a course. 4 different tee boxes really allows for different ways to play this course. If you miss the fairway, the rough is tough. Greens rolled true although a little slow . Highly recommend this course.

Plays like a PGA course. Beautiful setting, well-maintained, friendly staff and patrons. Also very friendly to walkers. Unbeatable value.
