Challenging but not too difficult executive course. Fun to play and pair up with others. Great for us occasional, couples, golfers. Reasonable. Only drawback is only one unisex restroom for the entire golf course and restaurant!

It's very nice executive course. Well kept greens and you get a great view of the lake. And the food at the club house is very good too.

Nice course. Semi challenging. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Play was slow but to be expected on a nice weekend. Only one unisex bathroom for the whole course and restaurant!
