We played on a Monday morning. One person was working in the clubhouse. He was also the starter and snack bar operator. He was very helpful getting us signed in and gave us a quick review of the course layout. He gave our foursome a book which described each hole and how to play it. Green fees were $30 for seniors. The clubhouse was nice. We had hoped to have a breakfast sandwich before playing but the cook did not show. The practice area was good. It had mat and grass areas from which to hit. This is a very hilly course with hidden hazards and slanted fairways. Bring some old balls to lose because many shots to the fairways roll into the high weeds. The tee areas were in pretty bad shape with many divots. I give the fairways a "B". If you manage to stay in a fairway the surface was usually good. Greens were all different as to speed. Some were spongy and slow while others were fast. All had bare spots and ant mounds in them. I give the greens a "D". The traps had sand in most but it looked like a herd of deer ran through them. I give the traps a "c-". The course layout is very challenging. Traps are located in strategic areas that make you think. Hazards like tall bushy rough are located just over the horizon so you must study the hole before you hit your tee shot. Hole 10 is typical of many of the holes. You must hit at least a 200 yard drive over bush and trees to what looks like a postage stamp fairway way below. I give the course layout a "B". It is a very beautiful course. I would play here again but not soon.

Lots of elevation changes and forced lay ups. Greens were in good shape and fast.

Well, they had 1 person working the register and the grill. They had no cart girl on a Sunday. The water coolers on the course were filled with days old water (no ice). Course is tricked out, meaning there are a ton of carries and blind shots. It's not really that fun when you have a hazard 200 to 230 off the tee on every hole and you consistently have to lay up. Greens were decent. I will not be returning.
