Nice layout. Good use of natural lay of the land.
Course was in good shape overall. Staff friendly and helpful. Only reason for the lack of the fifth star was that there was a small "tournament" on the course in front of us that slowed down the pace of play considerably.

Play was not managed well by management
Watched a few groups tee off before tee time. 4 some with beginners ahead of us. On second tee, observed group have person take add'l 6 strokes after teeing off and still only 100 yards off in the rough, from tee box. It was like that all day behind them! They should of played best ball with these people, instead of stringing out everyone behind them.Asked Burly guy from course riding around ( assumed Marshall ) in cart about play ahead of us as I knew for sure there was at least 1 if not 2 open holes ahead of four some we were behind. Keep in mind I am in a 2 some and a 3 some behind us. Gave the Burly guy a club we had found and he replied it was stacked up all over the course. This was hole 6 when asked. Stayed behind 4 some but they stopped at club house so our 2 some and 3 some behind us went to 10. 3.5 hours to play front nine! Keep in mind the 3 some kept hitting into us to speed us up, but we were not the issue.
It took us till hole 15, before we even caught up to anyone on the back nine, so obviously it was not stacked up all over. Also it was cart path only, but saw several groups starting back nine driving all over the course. It took 1.5 hours to play the back nine without being behind the 4 some.
When I went in to voice my concerns, no Management around, just a young man who said he was the only one there.
I like the course, but if I continue to experience slow unsupervised play, I will not be returning !!

Great course, challenging but rewarding. Straight tee shots are required.

Stock up on beverages.
The course was in good shape and is a really nice design. The issue I have is not seeing a beverage cart from the 4th to the 17th hole on a hot Sunday in August. The on-course water coolers were empty, too. The marshals must have been hiding under a shade tree because we didn't see one past the 8th tee. Not the service I expected from an "upscale" course. An email to the GM went unanswered.

I've played this course before and was satisfied. This last outing was not as good.Greens were in bad shape and there was no water to be found throughout the course, and for temperatures in the mid 90's...need I say more. Hopefully there are better days ahead.

Good Time. Fun golf course
Tee times available and pace of play moved nicely. Hole # 10 was closed and made to a par three due to bridge damage, Other than that everything was in good shape.

Does anyone maintain this course?
I've played this course before and I really liked it. It has a very challenging layout...but it seems that lately they don't care to keep up the course. The greens were full of unrepaired ball marks. Some of which had clearly been there for a day or two. The bunkers had clearly not been raked in over a week, which is not surprising because some didn't even have a rake, go figure. The tee boxes and fairways were fine, but the overall condition what very poor. I would be very hesitant in booking a tee time until this course has adequate time to tend to the course.
