The course was decent, just very dry and hard all over. Hard to take anything under the ball on the fairway or rough. All in all, the course was cut well, but the quality of the grass isn't up to par with similar priced resorts. Fun to play, but not an everyday choice for an advid golfer.

The front nine was a solid nine holes of golf. The back nine suffered from 14 and 15, especially 15, a 290 yard 90 degree dogleg (junk hole). Tees and fairways were awful, but they have no irrigation. Greens were good but slow. All in all, the layout was nice (and scenic) except for those holes on the back nine, the condition was marginal.

Awesome layout at the foot of the mountain. Small food selection at clubhouse but they have the cheapest beer around. Well worth the trip to play here.

The front nine and back nine are like two different courses. The original Great Cove had only the front nine, the back built in the early 90's. The front plays long and is a "bombers" paradise. The holes are well set up and makes for an enjoyable opening. There is challenge in most of the holes. I've played here in various conditions, but they do make an effort to keep the course up-kept- but drought takes it toll here. The front is long but honest. The back nine is tighter, with two very short par 4s (14 and 15)that require strategic placing rather than strength. 17 is a par 5 550 yarder and 18 follows up as a 460 Par 4. This is an enjoyable course in a very rural setting and well worth a visit!
