Great track. Great value. Some of the best closing holes around.

This course has water absolutely everywhere. Make sure have 2-3 sleeves of balls in your bag. It's one of those courses where you can play a great nine holes, and end up shooting 44 or 45. Not terribly maintained, pretty quick greens, not bad overall. The back nine is interesting because it runs adjacent to PIR (racetrack), so it can get pretty loud. Did not bother me, but it could affect some people's concentration.

Must play. Excellent greens. Challenging, but not super long. Must think your way around this course. Spectacularly fast, smooth greens and very well maintained. Very nice setting, very peaceful. Killer closing stretch.

Reviewed September 03, 2008

Very good challenge. This is a must play course for any golfer in the area.

Gawdawful racket from the racetrack adjacent to the Great Blue course can be a very annoying distraction.

Great for walkers.

Nicer of the two sides. Price is so-so. This would be a weekend golf outing. During winter, geese flock in, and leave quite a bit of unpleasant suprises around the course.
