Scenic. For ladies, need substantial carry on some holes. Half of our foursome unable to get past tall meadows and onto fairways which made them very frustrated. They swore never to play there again. Two of us have better drives which made that part a...More

I played this course twice last week. You have to be accurate. You will lose some balls, but you will find some. The course wasn't in the greatest shape due to a severe winter, but it was great fun to play. Narrow and twisting it...More

We reserved stiff flex clubs for my husband and were promised they would have them. Showed up, loaded up the carts and guess what? It's a grab bag of miscellaneous clubs! Half were for seniors, three quarters of what remained were regular and two were...More

The Scenery of this course is very beautiful. what is not so inviting is how tight the course is. Bring lots of balls and read your yardage book carefully. I do recommend playing the course for a good challenge.

The fairways are very tight and if you go off, there is a good chance you will not find your ball. It's not very busy and the views are excellent.

The links are extremely challenging due to the narrow layout of most of the holes. There is next to no room for error. You will spend most of the time with you driver in your bag. The scenery however is something that can only be...More

Excellent condition. Lots of sand but not raked so it's hard. The fairways are very tight and if you go off, there is a good chance it's a lost ball penalty. Several blind shots so take a look first. Greens are slow and not true...More
