A great course which was challenging but fair. Staff was also very pleasant and helpful. A big plus was the ease of parking near the bag drop.

Excellent golf course. Tee boxes, fairways, bunkers and greens in excellent condition. Course drains exceptionally well. After lots of rain the course was very playable. Staff was welcoming and very professional. Excellent clubhouse with a nice casual restaurant and bar.
