Price: I got a deal of $20 for 18 after 4 because they aerated the fairways. I think regular price is in the $60-70 range, which is too much in my opinion. But to be expected at a resort course. Pros: The course was in very good condition considering it's the middle of April, thanks to a mild winter/spring. Greens were pretty tough and fair, distance was about average (though the 595yd Par 5 is looong). Staff was also friendly. Cons: The downsides were the many encounters with tee shots flirting with houses and busy streets surrounding the property. You can tell they had to pack it in to make it 18, and I found myself bailing out a lot just to make sure I didn't cause any damage. I was almost hit by an errant shot as well, so it wasn't just me.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
