Nice course, very hot the day we golfed, but do think it is overpriced. Did not see a beverage cart enough, or spot any wildlife, which was a little disappointing.

The course is well maintained and fun to play. They treat their leagues, which spend thousands there every year like garbage. We are often time forced to move starting holes, tee times are bumped back so random people can play through a set league. Moved...More

Very well maintained, tight and long. Wonderful course but watch out for the ponds as there is many of them. Price is a little high at $70 US dollars as I am Canadian.

This course lived up to our expectations. It was in great shape, although some of the fairways were being aerated, which made some of the holes more challenging.

I really enjoyed the golf course. A little expensive, but likely the best course layout and condition in the area. A very enjoyable golf outing.

We have played the Fortress for many years, and it has always been in fantastic condition and provides the best value for your dollar. However, this year the course was incredible! The best conditions we have ever experienced. Can't wait to play it again!
