An attractive course that is challenging for low and medium handicappers. Greens are very fast and the course is in good condition and very scenic. Clubhouse has good facilities available.

Not as good as the Montgomerie course but well worth a round. We played in June 2016 and course was in great condition. We did not see any of the problems with the greens that others have reported.
