The only reasons it wasn't a "5" were I would have expected GPS on the carts and hole diagrams at the tees for the quality and cost of the course. The course was beautiful and well kept up, and very enjoyable to play. I love...More

Played here for the first time and were pleased with the course. The setting is very nice, winding through the housing community. The course offers 5 sets of tees and is challenging but not too difficult. There is a lot of water, some narrow fairways,...More
