    Summary:
    The course is built on a former sod farm so the course is very flat. It has three 9 hole courses that rotate for a variety of 18 hole experiences. The fareway's are cut nicely, but the rough is very high. This causes slow play as it makes it difficult to find your ball in the rough. The course plays very easy with usually a driver and short iron into par 4's. The greens roll true with very few ball marks to throw your putt off. Unfortunately the cart paths are dusty gravel and your bag will need to beat like a old rug when your round is complete to get the dust off. A couple of strategically placed bunkers around the greens could improve the difficulty factor of this course. Suggest this course for beginners or golfers that play only a couple of times a year. Golfers with a low handicap will score well but most likely find the course far from challenging.

    Customer Service:
    Very frienly staff led by Dave and Ryan. Food selection has improved.

    Summary:
    I came here to play from out-of-state and I had very good first impressions. I love the clubhouse, it is very modern and clean, with a nice sized bar/restaurant. Huge driving range, bunker, and putting green for practice. However, once on the course, I wasn't all too impressed. Course was too easy from what I am used to. VERY wide open, few trees. There are a few bunkers and occasional water to keep you honest. I scored my best round here because of lack of hazards though. I thought the yardages were way overrated. The par 3s said 190 when they were actually 150, just didn't match up with my clubs and distance I hit them. Overall, I recommend it for a beginning golfer who wants a nice clean course, without becoming too frustrated.

    Customer Service:
    Excellent. Beverage cart. Friendly rangers.

    My son has done group lessons and seems to love Jim and his teaching methods. Practice putting green is very nice and practice green/bunker is a nice one to work on your short game.
