This course should almost not be open for play.Not 1 bunker on entire course is even remotely playable.Decided to give this course another chance based on some recent reviews-what a mistake.A once wonderful course appears to be on its last legs.

Played all 3 nines at Sand Barrens and loved it. From cart guys to clubhouse and starter, everyone treated our group of 12 great!

A little pricey, it's a challenging but playable course (South & West nines played). Tricky greens, pretty fast, never really got the breaks down.
