Review by: Mark Palmer Relatively short with narrow fairways. Dial back the distance in favor of accuracy. All greens have recently been aerated and sanded which slows them from lightening to fast but they remain true. Must keep ball below the hole in order to be aggressive when putting. Greens on 12 and 14 ARE CLOSED, pro shop staff said they didnít know. Staff was NOT TRUTHFUL or forthright when asked specifically about on-going construction. Major bunker construction on 3, 6, 12, 14, and 15 greens left with no sand, now mud pits. Large new fairway bunker under construction on 13 fairway, again no sand. Temp tees on 4 (no impact)and 15 (huge impact)making this a tough 175 yard par 3. Some people had trouble negotiating the course layout. If youíre not a member, it is very easy to get lost between greens and next tee slowing up play. Signs would help guests immensely. Tee off time was 1:00 PM and we finished at 6:30 with a wait on every shot. 5 Ĺ hours, is far to long for such a short relatively open course. Clubhouse was excellent but that's not why I go to GOLF courses.
