"We played the back tees and they had not been overseeded so were a little rough. This is a great layout but is always lacking in its condition compared to other area courses. The do give free coolers with a 6pack!"

"Overall the course has tons of character, but the greens were in such poor shape it barely justifies the rate paid of $40. If this courses greens weren't so bad it would be a wonderful and challenging layout. The rest of the course was in average shape."

"A visually unique masterpiece well worth the drive. 17 great holes and then #9, the par-5 that comes to the clubhouse. A must play for all avid golfers."

"If this course is not on your trip planning, then change them! We hadn't played the course since the greens were switched. I am so glad that we decided to listen to the reviews on this site. I cannot express fully how impressed we were with the quality of the greens. There was not a single bad patch on any green. The landscape views and dramatic elevation changes make this course one of the best in the area. The only downside was the man and woman that drove past us in their cart skipping the 10th and 11th hole to tee up on the 12th. This caused us to have to wait on the twosome on the holes leading in to the clubhouse. The other downside was that the course was out of yardage books. This is a must due to the shot making that must be used on the course. A MUST PLAY!!"

"You never know what you get here. One year the conditions are great and the next year they're lousy. Currently the course is in less then stellar shape. Carts are not very good. Would expect more from an Arnold Palmer signature course."

"This was a nice course and great layout. Greens needed some work but were not in bad enough shape that I would not go back. Staff was very friendly and the deck overlooking 9 and 18 was a nice spot to watch the other groups come in. "

"Great layout but greens in POOR condition. Staff said it was because of a bad winter but all the other greens we played that week were fine so I have trouble believing that. They should have given us something like a free lunch or balls since we paid top dollar and played on greens of sand. Will be hard pressed to play this course again."

"Super course, views. #9 is almost unfair, 17 and 18 could use some more indicators of distance to OB so new players can pick a line off the tee."
