Review Summary: The course is a narrow fairway, tree lined course that is a shot-makers haven. Don't bring your "C" game here. Very demanding greens. I enjoyed the challenge. The wind blows all the time, so keep that in mind. If you don't like wind, stay away.
The course is bunkered fairly, but again you are penalized here for not hitting fairways and greens in regulation. Club selection is very important as well. You'll need a full bag of clubs to weave you way around this course. Strategy and course management are key to scoring on this track. I shot an 86 the first time I played it and shot an 80 the 2nd time. I will go back again!!!!
Conditions: The fairways and greens were in excellent condition and the greens were especially fast; they dry out even faster as the winds blow. Fastest greens I played on all year. Windy always!!!! Not many straight putts on these greens.
Scenery: The scenery wasn't the best, but I wasn't there for that, so if you're looking for a pretty, eye-catching course, this isn't it, but I do look for that in courses at times.
Layout: This generally a shorter layout, with a few Par 5's, but again the narrow fairways on most holes with lots of tree trouble can make for a long day at the office if you're not hitting it straight. Short/Long accurate players would love this course and probably score well here
Services: The staff was great and very helpful in negotiating the course with information about the lay-out, etc. It was put to good use. Very knowledgeable staff and quick to lend a hand.
