Just a very nice mountain golf course. It's kind of the red-headed stepchild to The Cascades Course, but it's also much more user-friendly and in great condition. Good fairways and very good greens. The view of The Homestead from the 14th tee is about as good as it gets.

This golf course has a nice track that takes you through beautiful mountains and nature, so it is a pleasure just to take time along the way to soak in all the natural beauty. The quality of the course and the condition don't really merit the level of the green fee, but you pay a premium when you play at... More

The greens and fairways were some of the greenest and perfectly manicured as I have ever seen. The Falconry was awesome and I wish I had stayed longer for a repeat..very exciting!

This is the third time that I have played the Old Course. Greens and fairways were perfect. Pace of play was good. This course is great for my confidence. You can reach most of the par 5's in two and the fairways are wide open. The course isn't too long which is fine with me. Definitely a fun course to... More

We played here first and loved it. The course is impeccable. Well maintained and beautiful. It was challenging and interesting. You should not miss an opportunity to play here.

For an older style course this is okay. The fairways are a but bumpy not billiard table smooth like most newer courses. THe distances are short so even average players like me have a chance at an eagle on the par 5s. Lot of par 5s and 3s, so it's not a boring place to play. A couple of really... More

Challenging but fair, fantastic views of the surrounding area. The halfway house in great need of renovation and cleaning of rest rooms.

If you are an avid golfer, avoid playing the Old course. The scenery is nice, but since it is included free in the all-activities package, calling the pace of play a "snail's pace" is an insult to all snails. It's great if you are taking the family to play if you aren't regular golfers. But if you are looking to... More

The course is very hilly with wide fairways and plenty of variety amongst the holes. The views throughout the course are wonderful.
