My friend and I took our 20something sons golfing here. They rode together. We all had a wonderful time. Course has a nice layout with plenty of water to navigate. You need to strategize your way around the course. Would play it again.

Golf Trip with 4 of us. Very challenging and well kept. Greens are quick. Here’s a tip, if you read a break in your putt, beware, it’s not so much. Beautifully kept, great staff. Will be back.

We played this course after playing Litchfield Country Club that morning, which is, by the way under the same course superintendent. Breath takingly visually. Water is in play on 14 of 18 holes. The greens were fast and true. We look forward to playing again...More

Nicely laid out golf course with lots of water and bunkers. But very manageable. Well kept and groomed. Greens are tough but true. Would highly recommend this course

As usual, the golf course was in great shape with the usual rye over-seed of the Bermuda grass. The clubhouse is undergoing some major updating renovations at the moment, but check in runs smoothly in the restaurant portion. Personnel are always pleasant and helpful. And,...More
