I played this course in August 2012 and it was in great shape. The staff was very friendly and professional. There are a couple of blind shots which I'll be more prepared for next time.

I played during early November, 2011, and the course was in excellent shape. The fairways were neatly trimmed and the rough was not impossible but challenging. The greens were in good shape.
The staff were all very helpful. I felt this was a good course for my level of play. The holes are modeled after famous courses, of which, I probably won't be able to play. So it was great to try these. Overall, I felt it was well worth the fees.

We were in a foursome that played this course on 10/10/10. The course was in pretty rough shape with lots of bare spots. The greens were fair with some patchy dirt spots. One green had no grass whatsoever; it was just sand. There were a lot of blind shots. You may have thought you struck a ball very well only to spend time after time searching for your ball. The round took 5 hours and 45 minutes!!! There were some people that grouped together so we had two groups of 6 players each in front of us. One group was blaring rap music on a radio in their cart. After spending 4 hours and we were only on hole 12, we called the pro shop for a ranger. We went in the pro shop to complain after the round that they needed rangers to monitor the speed of play as our round was so long. They told me there were rangers out on the course, but we never saw one except on hole 2. Also, the pro shop attendant told us it was not the groups of 6 that were holding up play, it was just a busy day. If that is the normal pace of play, prepare for a long day on the course. It was definitely not worth the price we paid given the current conditions and pace of play. We would not recommend this course unless you have a lot of extra time on your hands and don't mind waiting and/or searching for your golf ball. -

Played for first time on 7/26/10 and was disappointed with the course conditioning - - greens were very bumpy, full of ball marks and some dead grass. Fairways and rough were very scratchy too. But it does have an interesting layout though. It's one of those courses where you'd feel much more comfortable playing it for the 5th time because the vast majority of the tee shots are blind and even the ones that aren't are still hard to tell where the best line is, even with a yardage book. We paid only $36 for twilight so we didn't get a terrible value but I would rather have spent the 5 hrs and more $ for a nice experience. It would be a fun place to play if the conditioning were top notch. Fast and smooth greens would make it a worthwhile challenge

Played this course on 6-17-10 I had played the course three years ago. This time is was a dry clear day with the wind blowing and may I add with the wind blowing it was a bear. The price was well in line with AC area courses if not cheaper. The players in front of me were very freindly since I was alone let me play thru no problem. The only thing I think they need are GPS on the carts. I would recommend this course to all.
