“Peaceful Golfing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

I Truly enjoy playing the General, But the best time to play is twilight! Not having to dish out major cash for a day in mid sun. Instead relax don't be hurried and enjoy your game with the sun gently going down. I've played it where I have seen the deer almost like watching my game. (it's not good) to where just hanging out and enjoying the company. Staff is nice. I haven't had an issue with that. I think the pricing is a little on the high side. I think the up keep of the course is well done. It has some beautiful holes on it. Nothing really bad to say about it. I will keep golfing it in the twilight time to save cost. I would do that on all the courses! Ciao

“Great fall weather golf on the South Course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2012

The South Course is a nice challenge. Tight fairways and well placed hazzards. I prefer it to the General.

“Awesome scenery and course, but POOR SERVICE”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2012

The General was a beautiful course, but their staff needs some training. Very snooty, gave the impression that they didn't want us there! Played the South course the next day (AWESOME service), hard to believe this the same organization. If we return have no desire to play the General again.

“A lovely challenge.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

It was a lovely hilly wooded course that presents lots of opportunities to lose golf balls. Control is the key here!

“Loved this course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

What a fun course to play. Very much a target golf course with a few spectacular holes on the back nine. The back nine is by far the best. Would definitely play again. Price wasn't too bad for a higher end course either. 14 is a very unique hole that you can see 3 different states from the tee box and you hit over a drop that is about 150 feet or so down.
