Played recently in February and found a traditional West Coast layout with a few interesting holes and one bad hole.

A number of holes have wide fairways and ample cleared areas so mishits are not punished just inconvenienced.  However, 10, 11 and 12 are long, narrow, bound by trees and are just plain difficult.  A whole course made up of those three holes would be unplayable for recreational golfers but, to have only three on a layout like this adds variety and strategy.  The par 3, 17th is also an intimidating shot because water and trees are very close to a steeply sloped green.

18 is the stinker and leaves a bad taste after 17 recreational holes.  It is a blind dogleg right with OB left and right but, the landing area off the tee is only 15 yards wide.  This hole feels like it was a complete afterbirth, I mean after thought, and was shoe horned onto what would otherwise be a pleasant but not particularly memorable layout.

A number of new drainage conduits have been recently added which improves the playability in wet weather and the price is right.  Unfortunately, the turf doesn't improve much in the summer.

The only course that I've played that is also a tennis club!

The course itself is not bad and quite enjoyable to play. Not as nice as Morgan Creek but still fairly nice.
