Six years ago I played this course and had a marvelous time as it was in great shape. The course is not in nearly as good of shape as it was then. It is still OK but it is just nothing like it was then.More

Played this course good Friday. Had the course to ourselves. Beautiful lay out and some challenging holes. Need to hit straight or you end up hitting condos, especially on back nine. Great course
