Beautiful scenery, very good condition of fairways and greens.

Played from the blue tees, 6044 yds. Pace of play: 5-1/2 hours. Waited on every hole, even though the groups in front of us were playing from forward tees. No rangers to move play along.

We had a 1:30 tee time. Arrived to find an outing was scheduled to shotgun on holes 1-10 starting at 1pm.

We teed off at 1:30, caught the group ahead of us when we reached the 2nd tee. After that, we waited on every shot for the group ahead of us to proceed, and finished after 7pm.

Never saw a ranger trying to move the pace of play along ahead of us. We spent a lot of time talking with the two groups behind us, who, like us, were waiting on every shot all the way around. At one time, there were 4 groups of us on the same par 4, waiting for the groups ahead of us.

Too bad. Over 5-1/2 hours to play a short, 4 hour course.

Before you book...call the course and see if they have any outings scheduled ahead of you. If they do, pass on it...there are other courses available. Life is too short to play a short, easy to play golf course at that long a pace.

The golf course management should be more considerate of all golfers.

They would play this course again.

I play this course about 5 to 6 times a year while I'm up at the lake. I played with my son who is just learning the game and has a hard time with consistency on his shots so we like to play alone since I don't want to mess with someone else's game. We had a single join us and although he was understanding it was uncomfortable when he was trying to play a normal game. In any case the course's greens and pin placements were such that you had to drive the ball into the hole anything slow would break severely when getting close to the cup. I 3 putted 6 greens (which I never do) so I didn't score well. They also leave the grass very long around the greens so if you are not a good 'chipper' then you lose shots there too (which I did). Although the greens are fairly large you need to pay attention to control your approach shots because being on the wrong spot on the green means at least a 2 putt.

The course conditions are absolutely FANTASTIC! The Pro Shop staff and outside staff are the best around by far. Friendly, accommodating, and willing to help you in anyway they can. Just an absolute great experience and can't wait to go back!!
