A great layout, but the conditions and grooming of the course seems much worse than when I play several years ago. The course was still in decent shape, but grounds were in need of repair. Pro shop was not clean, range balls were not clean...More

I loved this course. The greens were in nice condition but not super fast. Very scenic course. You play several holes over the river and a couple holes play entirely on an island. Neat feature.
