This was the first time I have played this track and was disappointed. The scenery is nice, but the course was not in the best of shape, dry in spots and wet in others, and the greens were inconsistant and not maintained real well. The layout is bland for the most part. The dry winter might explain the reason for part of the conditions, but for $69, was way over priced for what you got and would not recommend. The local I played with said there were other courses in the area that were nicer and the only reason he was there was he got a discount being he had a place on the course.

A mountain course at approximately 9,000ft+ Fairways and greens in excellent shape for August. Hit 4hybrid into signature hole and missed birdie putt. Played with locals which helped with positioning shots. A few gimmicky holes due to doglegs or trees but overall a neat course to play. I had read mixed reviews about the course before playing it and spoke with others who said it would be worth the trip. The others remarked of narrow fairways and not always hitting driver. They were correct and the rough was thick and tall. If you can't control your shot, this is not the course for you unless you want to lose some golf balls and are not easily frustrated. Enjoyed the course as shot to my 10hdcp. and would have been better if I had not bogeyed the first and last holes.
