Course was in very good condition in mid May. Fairways and bunkers were in great shape and the bent grass greens were excellent. They were fast but rolled true.
Staff was helpful and this course offers a true mountain golf experience. Some holes had blind tee shots but play with someone who has played the course before or buy a yardage book and it shouldn't present a problem. Great scenery especially on the 15th hole.
Amply water available on the course and the half-way house was quite adequate.
This course is a challenge but is also a must play.

Spectacular scenary and beautiful course. Difficult course, ie... Many blind shots, quite a few traps with many elevated greens for roll-offs. Need to play more than once for course familiarity. Super Value!

Since they have redone the greens, the course is in excellent condition. The fairways were overseeded and look beautiful. The course has a greeat winter special. A fun golf course to play.

I have played this course many, many times over the years (and I loved it every time), but my last round was atrocious and i will never darken their door again. Greens? More like browns and blacks. Seriously, I've played cow pasture par 3's that had better greens. The ultimate insult: after spending hours behind a slow foursome, the ranger stopped by and arrogantly asked my group to speed up play. Where!?! A great course reduced by maintenance and management to a big, expensive joke.

Has become a 1st rate course now and added the Golf Digest School. One of the best ranges around.

Course has a good mixture of interesting holes and great views of the mountains, especially the par-3 #6 which is magnificent. I would rate this course a five if they could redesign hole #11. It is a stupid design with no redeeming value and that is just not because of its difficulty. That one hole sets the course back a full star.

One of the best

The only problem was some of the fairways had some wet holes watch out when driving the golf cart. But over all it was a fantastic course, much harder than the slope and rating was on the card, cant wait to go back, you dont get this kind of course in Florida.

Thanks for the course
