Great golf course for a great price but it's a very tough course in my books so if your looking for an easy course don't go here but if you want a nice hard course I recommend

We were able to get 12 holes in. The course was nice and the greens were well kept. They have some great deals on their website from time to time so check that out first when making your tee time.

This is a very interesting course with lots of unusual lies due to the many man-made hills that line the fairways. On the plus side, the layout presents unusual challenges and it is unlike anything else I've played in the valley. On the downside, the...More
