Played the course 5-20-15. All of our group showed up on time and the starter told us we could go. What a great feeling showing up and actually have your tee time ready for you. And it was not because the course was empty. It was cold today so all of the group suggested with make plans for later in the summer. The course offered all that we could handle. Some of the best par 3's on one course that we have seen in a long time, especially at the price. I have played courses that charged 3x this course and they didn't compare. Lastly I played the ball down the entire 18. The traps were raked and ready for play. I do have one con. The greens would have been really great with a little more speed.

I really enjoyed my round here. The course does what a good course should do. It rewards you for the correct shot and punishes you for the bad ones. The greens are solid, with plenty of challenges. The course is in great shape. The layout is very up and down, but it is hard to find a course in the area that is not. There is no practice facility. The price is excellent, paid 35 on a weekend. If you are near the airport I would recommend playing here. At 35 compared to 60-70 for quicksilver, it is worth playing.

Good luck trying to get near par (71) on this course! It's scenic, affordable, and very well maintained - you're missing out if you haven't played this course yet - the elevation changes alone are worth the drive, and the 19th hole is just icing on the cake!

Great place to play, price is right. Greens are in good shape and getting faster. Lots of water and traps. Club house nice and food good.

A beautiful course with rolling hills and is surrounded by beautiful country. This is one very challenging course. Lots of elevation changes, lots of water, lots of sand traps. Driving accuracy is of paramount performance. Outstanding course for golfers of all talent levels!

be sure to keep your ears open, because you will have to play dodge ball at some point.

Like this course, fairways were decent. Green were in good shape for this time of year. Tee boxes were in bad shape. Would play again.

Very limited in yardage markers. In fact one par three didn't list the yardage at all from the tips. Fairways and rough is good shape. Greens rolled true but shaggy. Nice round for the money though.

The greens were is really bad shape when I played this last. If you don't mind playing nearly every shot from an uneven lie, this course is for you.

Tight but short course, very well maintained.
