Not a great experience. If you play in the morning, eat before you go. If you are lucky enough to even find someone to take your order, food sucks. Staff has a kind of a 'stiff' attitude. I went a couple hours early to work on my swing since coming off the winter, i have not played much. I must... More

Conditions of the greens were horrible. Looked like the pin positions had not been changed for a week, and as a result, bare ground and serious fraying at the holes.

This course has it all from the slopes, elevation changes, blind tee shots and amazing views. The service is top notch from the bag drop, clubhouse, starter and cart girl. I played this course with my teenage son and it was a great experience for us both. After checking in the clubhouse we made our way to the practice range... More

The service when you arrive is outstanding. Your name on cart, they put your clubs in the cart for you, park your vehicle just everything to make your visit outstanding. Can't wait to go back.

From the moment I arrived the staff was friendly and helpful. The course and its views simply spectacular. I'm from Florida and it's always a treat to play elevation changes. Although intimidating, the fairways were open and the greens fast and true. The grain was crazy fast or slow depending on your spot. Give it a go!
