We played the 9-hole course twice as a warm up and found it a lovely course. It was not long, but had nice features and some challenging holes. The layout was both interesting and beautiful to look at. Pace of play was perfect, we did 2x9-holes in just under 4 hours. The couple we were paired with were locals and... More

Awesome 9 hole teaching course, and the best instructors to hone your game. The course is always in tip top shape, and ready to give the beginner and intermediate golfer a good run for their money.

I spent two mornings practicing at the short game area. They had large putting green, two ranges, one for short shots and a standard range for all clubs. Also had areas for bunker practice and a green for pitch shots. The conditions were great to use on your own which I did but they also had a golf school there... More

Hitting from the green tees and my wife from the golds proved to be a real competitive treat. The 9 holes are laid out for teaching so you have a little of everything. One par 4 over 400 yards, no par 5's total par 32. It can be a bit slow due to family play. It is what it is!... More

It was family golf day and we were looking for a fun executìve course. Found it. Course was in good shape and most holes had good designs. All of the staff were friendly and helped with information. The only negative was lack of food or beverage cart. Clubhouse too far from turn and no time on busy day.
