A good Dan Maples course where he used the terrain and built a great course. It is not as difficult as the Jones course but very enjoyable. There is some very challenging water holes and is well trapped. "GO PLAY"

I just returned from a "guys" week (16 of us). This was the 2nd of 3 days of golf at this property. The course layout was great, unfortunately the condition of this and the other 2 courses is so bad that it over shadows what can clearly be seen as a once great golf property. The greens might have been... More

Nothing outstanding but the price was right and can recommend this course because they are not crowded. Enjoy

For the most part this course is laid out well. Holes #1,7 & 13 are somewhat quirky-short, severe dogleg and just plain unusual. Course has great par 5's and two par 4's over 400 yards from the white tees. Conditions could be improved with some tender loving care; tress, fairways and roughs especially. Greens putted at a consistent speed. A... More

Dan Maples did an excellent job in laying out this course. Like the Byrd and Jones, plenty of wildlife to photograph. Tricky par 3's.

Played here as part of my golf trip on Sept 30 2013. Course was in terrible shape. We played four other courses in the area including the Byrd Course on the same property. The greens were a mess, There was cut grass everywhere and it was poorly manicured. It was like playing a beat up muni course that you pay... More

Played here on July 16, 2013. Greens were mowed very long and slow slow slow. The staff told us they were "stressed" which does not make sense sense given the cool summer we've had so far. When repairing divots, the grass just came right up - almost no root system. Overall a nice layout and fun to play but the... More

My husband made a hole in one on the 5th hole. First time ever! The course was well maintained and he enjoyed playing there.

We found the course to be in very nice shape today. The price was right at $35 a person plus 3 cans of food. We have never been offered that special before but it was a great deal. The staff was friendly and helpful. The course was very busy, but we were still able to play in 4 hours. We... More

This is a really fun course to play. Tough enough to feel like a great accomplishment but open enough to not be painful to play. Everyone should try it. You'll come back, for sure.
