This is a real nice layout, offering a challenge to golfers of all skill levels. Played it in 2017 and the greens were in seriously bad condition the result of the application of incorrect chemicals. I expected improved conditions this year but was sadly disappointed....More

I finally got a chance to play this course recently. I’ve heard a lot of good about it. It didn’t disappoint. With the greens going dormant for winter, they putted very fast. I’d definitely come back again. BTW, we played the Cameron/Stewart nines.
