We golfed Heartbreaker & Mindbreaker nines. My husband is a 15 handicap and I'm a 33. Fairways were carved through thick grasses and over some water. The course was in excellent condition, but unforgiving. Any ball not landing on the fairway is lost to tall...More

Played here on a Sunday afternoon looking for an upscale course, above average difficulty, enjoyable to play. Very upscale, very hard, not fun. The greens are all elevated from the fairway, with water or sand in the front. So there is no way for the...More

Lots of up and down Fairways with elevated greens. The green are hard and do not hold the ball. The greens putt fast. Most greens have steep banks and you have 5o hit the right target or ball roles off in collection areas or water....More

The appropriately named Heart, Mind and Backbreaker nines are definately challenging but very good golf at a great price. Tip: after 3pm prices are about 1/2 off. Course was in great shape too, as are all of the RTJ Trail courses. I would probably play...More

This is by far one of the nicest courses I have ever played. Everything is immaculate! Staff is friendly and helpful. It is challenging to say the least! Depending on what tee you play from it can be long. Greens are firm and fast but...More
