Beautiful course, friendly reception, a bit crowdy at times, beautiful trees and neture. Not very good indication of the holes, easy to play the wrong holes.

Wow, what a great track. The layout is very good with some interesting elevation changes. Condition of this course in Aug 2015 is superb considering the current drought. Fairways are fully grassed and every lie is spot on. Greens are excellent. Mostly Poa I think...More

Nice place to golf, although right now due to drought, the fairways are quite dry. You can rent clubs for a reasonable price, and they were in great shape. Nice restaurant on premisies. Interesting Sunday buffett...a mix of waffles with a mexican flair!
