I played here on May 29. Price was right for a weekend...$17 with cart. My wife loved the it gets extra points for that. The guy in the Pro Shop was honest and did tell me the fairways were still growing in..(which they were!!) and that the greens were in great shape....which was also true. The course starts out wth a Par 3..and the final 2 holes are Par 3's..and everything in between is either a 5 or a 4. Not knowing the was difficult to know what to hit on the dog legs. I always err'd on the conservative side (i.e if you think driver..hit a 3 wood)and it was the right call. They have a short (224 from the blue tees) Par 4..with a creek right in front...that was a fun hole. THe 3rd hole is a long Par 4 (432)from the blues,...and it has trees right in lone with the hole. You either have to hit yout driver high...or hit a cut around the trees. I opted for a 3 wood/3 hybrid shot...and was right in front of the green in 2. The was the only hole I had an issue with. The par 5's are all reachable in 2. Had I not been in the middle of a swing rebuilding effort..I could have scored well here. Once the fairways grow in..this will be an enjoyable little track!

great course, can't beat the price $15 to walk 18, $13 on wednesdays to walk. easy short course to walk. played last week and shot an 84, there working on number 2 right now but its about completed. great course i play it all the time. there needs to be more courses around here like this that the average man can afford to play, instead of all these expensive courses around here

This course has its share of water. I like to play it in the Spring to prep my game for the Myrtle Beach, SC, area courses (lots of water)that I play on vacation. The course has always been well-maintained. The scenery & staff are great. When you're game is over, you can take the Mrs. over to Highland Lake Inn (across the street & up the hill)for an excellent meal. It doesn't get much better than that.

Nice nine hole. Greens are a little tricky, lots of water, rates OK. Good for 9 holes Friday afternoon.

Fast greens, open fairways & lots of walkers on the weekends. Fun 9-hole.

Nice Little Course

Challenging for a relatively short course. Small, well maintained, elevated greens are difficult to hold. Water is abundant requiring controlled drives. Fun to play 18 holes alternating between the blue and white tees.
