Great Mike Strantz golf venue. Memorable. Could not be played without a yardage guide, however. We lucked out with a guide plus a couple of local golfers who knew the course we’ll.

Beautiful, awesome. Visited April 2018. Design is crazy. Must see and play. Course is designed to make you think and hard to read.

Plan to play this course for at least two days in a row. The first round will be a learning experience. Maybe on the second one, you can score! A fabulous layout.

Sounds crazy right? I say it's a MUST play (and it is) but Mike Strantz was the most evil course designer ever. Both are true. Look, if you know your distances of your clubs then it should be easy. Big fairways, big tee boxes, big...More
