Great course when its in good shape. Last time I played, the greens were non existent on some holes, just aerated mud. They must have got slammed from the past storms. I'm sure it will bounce back. Great woodsy layout and challenging but not too much so. Great bar cart service. Great price, and its practically in my back yard, only problem is they have a LOT of outings and its tough to get tee times.

Played late November, Course was exceptional, leaves blown off course, greens and bunkers in good shape. I loved the large greens at this course. I enjoyed the design.

Great Course and Facilities. Well worth the green fee, even at weekend rates.
