Perfect overcast day. The course was in excellent shape. Finished the round in 4 hours 15 minutes for our foursome. Play kept moving. We teed off at 8:40 am unfortunately we had to keep carts on the path the entire round and were still able to finish in 4:15 which is amazing.

Great course, Greens, fairways, buckers all excellent. Hard course to walk. Would like to play again if in the area.

Overall one of the best courses that I have ever played. Love the layout, very challenging, and I appreciate the merging of native areas with pro-quality fairways and greens. Some areas were under construction, and they are redoing the sand traps, but the improvements will make the course that much better. They really keep up on your pace of play as well. Overall, a great course. A bit pricey, but well worth it!

this is a very nice golf course. bunkers are some of the best I have ever played. The greens were not fast, but rolled beautifully. Challenging from the wolfpack tees but not hard. I will definitely play again. Driving range was average, nothing compares to Scotch Hall preserve.

Played it for about 1/3 of the regular price through so in that sense it was amazing. Looks great, greens are fast but roll true.
