Even though the surface was hard due to cold weather it was good to play.

played this course often but was disappointed that only the back nine was available for play, for my group. I was told they were working on the front nine but i did see other golfers playing the front nine. I did see workers on the back while we were playing. Overall i enjoyed the round with the slight detour. the course looks to be making improvements and i will be back next season, i find the course challenging but fun.

This was my first time playing the course. We played the Black Tees because we didn't know any better but we probably should have played the Scarlet (back tees) because the length was short from the Blacks. If you have decent distance off the tee you can eat up this course. I was on in two on the first par 5 after a good tee shot left with me 187 to hole.

The greens were lightening fast, probably some of the hardest greens I've played this year. If you like a challenge putting, I would recommend this course. The green complexes were large (biggest I've ever seen) and you could easily run the ball 20 yards up from front to back if your shot didn't land soft.

The fairways are in ok shape, given it's now past the growing season. We were paired up with a local who plays the course a lot. He told us they aerated the fairways in the fall and the ground had a fungus problem which left a lot of dead patches of grass. He suggested we move our lie onto to a large patch of grass when in the fairway, I would suggest the same!

Other than that, be careful on holes 10 and 12. They are blind tee shots with a creek running across the fairway near the landing zone if you use a driver.

Also, you must be in position on this course. What makes it tough are all the trees. If you don't land in the fairway you will probably be impeded by a tree branch (if not a row of trees).
