Good layout, nice pro shop, and reasonable prices. It can get crowded during the summer weekend period. A tee time is def. reccommended.

Excellent golf course and usually in beautiful shape. Good value also. Beautifull view and enjoyable fairways. Course has a great restaurant and courteous staff in the pro shop. I can't wait to go back and have a wonderful day.
