This course is less than ten years old, and while the greens, fairways, and tee boxes are in good condition, the bunkers are falling apart.
We were playing on a Tuesday, and they had not had any raking for quite a while.
That's not too bad, normally, esp. for a week day round, but there is some kind of fibrous matting under the sand, and it's sticking out of the sand in many places. This not only causes huge problems when you're trying to get out of the bunker, it makes it difficult to rake after you've finished.
They need to direct some of their money into the bunkers.

My son recently played this course. It is a beautiful course that was in excellent condition even though it was mid March. There are very long and hilly distances between holes. You will definitely want a cart. There is not a clubhouse yet. A simple building suffices to pay and get a cart. There is a beautiful vineyard adjacent if you would like a snack or a delicious glass of wine after your round.

Love playing this course. It was in great shape last year and we are looking forward to 2016 play. Has some tough holes.

What a beautiful golf course! Challenging, but fair. A lot of sand traps, but well maintained. There were a few water hazards. The fairways were immaculate, the greens so, very nice. The young lady who ran the refreshment cart was on hand it seemed every four holes. The practice facility was the best I have ever been to. The staff at the pro shop were wonderful, with advice on the course and information. The only complaint I have is the Pro Shop is to small, I understand this is temporary. I plan on returning very soon with friends.

I have played this course many times. While the clubhouse is a work in progress the course itself is great. A very nice practice facility. The course can play very long I would suggest you think about which tee you want to play. The greens are good and typically roll really well. I always enjoy playing here
