Excellent layout. Parts of the course need some work.
The course was enjoyable but work is needed in some areas including the bunkers.

Extraordinary course but sadly...
I was stunned but the expansive layout of this course. Frankly, I was almost speechless and thrilled to be there. Fortunately, I was with a golf professional who knew the course and it's "intimacies" which are too numerous to mention. Were he not guiding me with excellent and precise advise, I would still be there wandering around talking to myself. For example, I butchered the front, putting a 9 down on the 5th hole which is only 283 yds long featuring a critical drive and very precise approach shot which I failed to produce till my 3rd ball. With only 1 par on the front I was rattled after 9 however, I am thrilled to announce that with my trusty navigator and the help of a beer at the turn, I produced 5 pars on the turn and a 41 for the back for which I am so proud to have calmed down and not given in to my disappointing front. I cannot wait to return to that truly magnificent course which has a extraordinary and grand maturity especially for a public course. NOW FOR THE SAD NEWS...I know it's near the end of a long golf season however, it appears to me that management (MDM Golf Enterprises), has not been putting any money back into the course and basically sucking it dry of income and I say this from observing what I can only describe as completely neglected traps (which are huge and numerous), and multiple tee boxes which are in very poor condition. I do know that the turf bottles on both carts were empty when we teed off which is evidence of their neglect. I fell in love with this course yesterday and can't wait to return some day and find it cared for with the love it was designed with by Arnold Palmer G C Design.

Course in great condition except for bunkers
Beautiful course. Holes 11, 16, 17 and 18 very challenging. Condition was very good except for the bunkers. Bunkers need work.

Good features, but not so good condition.
Greens and tee boxes were not in very good shape. I realize its near the end of the season, but other courses are in much better shape.

I had heard that the bunkers were not in good shape but that is an understatement. There is not one grain of sand in any of the bunkers - they are all dirt and in some cases mud puddles. Other than that, the course is not in horrible shape. The fairways are okay, the tee boxes are fair, the rough is okay, the cart paths are in fair condition for their age (I think it's like 10 years?). Could use some yardage markers - how difficult would it be to put a red stake at 100 yards? The only other complaint is the gas carts - noisy and no gps. So without good yardage markers on the course and no gps, many shots are a guess. Maybe they figure everyone has a range finders? But be sure to bring one if you play.

This is a challanging course
The course is difficult as they do not have enough yardage signs. Also, the greens aren't in the best shape. I liked the layout as you have to know where to place each of your shots.

Traveled a distance to play here.
But it was worth it. Played from the blues and it played all of the yardage. Challenging.
