“Decent for an old style course”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

For an older style course this is okay. The fairways are a but bumpy not billiard table smooth like most newer courses. THe distances are short so even average players like me have a chance at an eagle on the par 5s. Lot of par 5s and 3s, so it's not a boring place to play. A couple of really nice holes. I'd play it again I suppose. But it's not on my "must play here again" list.

Challenging but fair, fantastic views of the surrounding area. The halfway house in great need of renovation and cleaning of rest rooms.

“No wonder it is free with the activities package”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

If you are an avid golfer, avoid playing the Old course. The scenery is nice, but since it is included free in the all-activities package, calling the pace of play a "snail's pace" is an insult to all snails. It's great if you are taking the family to play if you aren't regular golfers. But if you are looking to enjoy a competitive round with experienced golfers, play the Cascades.
