Checked in and found the rate quoted of $129 was reduced to $87. Arnie's age at his passing earlier. Appreciated, but unexpected. Condition of the course from tee to greens was great. Had a problem on a number of occasions reading the greens. Also much faster than greens I am accustomed to. Only problem was that the fairways were somewhat... More

You can definitely see the influence of both Jack and Arnie. Weather was a little gloomy, but the course was in great shape, and the staff was extremely helpful.

Had a great afternoon. We played at our own pace and didn't see anyone the entire time. The course was beautiful and we had a memorable experience.

Inconsistent pricing for this course was quite frustrating and not very transparent. It would be nice if they informed golfers that their greens, especially on the front nine, were heavily topdressed with sand. I found the setting and the layout of the holes to be interesting and challenging. The starter was awesome the day I played. He was the most... More

Enjoyed the layout of this golf course. Front nine is different topography then back nine. Front has elevation changes approaching the green - down and up, deep bunkers are a result (one is over your head). Back is playing golf in a flat open parkland. Bunkers, front & back 9s, have steep, deep lips to them. Sand ok but best... More

Enjoyed the course very much. This is a championship course with deep bunkers, some forced carries and quick greens. The course was in very good condition and the pro shop and restaurant staffs were very friendly and professional.
