One of the finest, if not the finest, golf course the area has to offer. A new clubhouse houses a nice restaurant that serves great food, and a pro shop. The adjoining patio area allows you to watch the approaching golfers on eighteen from a great vantage point. And the parking lot is now paved, which has been a source of criticism for some about the facility. The course itself is always in great shape and the holes are both challenging and interesting. What was once the nicest golf course you'd ever see without a clubhouse or a paved parking lot, is now the kind of place you might even want to linger at following a round just to soak in the atmosphere. And perhaps a cold beer. Fish sandwich with steak fries while watching the golf channel on one of the big screens was a great way to unwind following my round. Give this course a try, you will be pleasantly surprised.

I really want to like this course - but find the layout extremely challenging and IMHO not fun. The green complexes are multi-level and lend themselves to 3-Putts. I'd rather drive to Diamond Hawk - even though the views are better at HH.
I have been playing this course since it opened. The landscape is fantastic. The groundskeeping team has done an amazing job keeping the course in great shape.
After 4 pm during the week, 18 holes with a cart is only $29, $25 for nine.
Since the new ownership, construction on the property has been substantial. A new clubhouse has been built along with a full service bar and restaurant called Rooth's Sky Lite.
The menu is quite extensive. They serve breakfast all day, which is great. The rest of the menu is standard pub fare such as burgers, wraps and chicken wings.
As for drinks, the bar has a full liquor license. The beer selection is standard domestic and imports. They offer a bucket of five beers for $12. There are some craft beers such as Southern Tier IPA, Sierra Nevada pale ale and Magic Hat #9.
The food was good and the ambience was fitting for a golf course. All in all, the golf is great and the addition of the bar and restaurant improves the full experience.
Played here on Saturday and had a good time. Pretty open course allows for some room for error, though I guess they let the grass grow nice and tall in the summer which makes for much harder to find your ball in the heather. Greens were pretty quick and must only get quicker as it gets drier over the summer. Fairways were pretty soft and well maintained. I'd play again here for sure.
