A nice corse. This course is very long, open and forgiven. Reasonable rates include green fees,cart and titlest clubs. You also need caddies,can't play without them,they are worth it,nice not looking for my ball. A very nice day with friends,would do it again.

We had dinner here at no charge it was absolutely wonderful. We had a free 5 course meal the steak was the best I've ever eaten. We will be going next year again it would be worth it to pay out of your pocket.

This course is sneaky long. The white tees are only 6450 yards but there are many par 4s measuring well over 400, especially on the front. The rough is long so advantage is to the straight hitter. Not a lot of trouble otherwise so you...More

Yes they are an older titliest model but still in good condition. You do have to hire a caddy though and the total come to 60 dollars. It's an enjoyable course to play. Hope this helps Brian
