|Review by: Maryland Mauler, 15 handicap
||I played this course on Thursday with some friends that live around the course. What a Great Experience. The adventure started with one of the most friendly and accommodating staffs I have ever met. They gave me advice on a couple of tricky holes. The practice facility was nice and a bucket of balls was very reasonable. It even had a chipping green with a practice bunker, neither of which I used but should have. The course itself was in excellent shape, green, full, fairways and rough and a clear distinction between the two. And a club house that had good food and cold beer that we could take onto the course. The front nine started with a short par 4 all down hill with a green that was open in the front. But the second hole was back up that hill and was a touch longer. The third was a par 3 that was cut out of the tress with the green just over a small creek. The fourth was a dogleg left par 4 and the fifth a par 5 that was open to the left and let you swing away. The sixth a par 4, the seventh a par 3, the eighth a par 4 and the ninth a par 5 all were nice holes with a good bit a openness allowing for some of my errant shots. At the turn we had a hot dog and refilled the cooler. The back nine was a bit tougher it had trees line almost every fairway. The fairways were generous however so it was not overly impossible to keep your ball in play. These holes were also a touch longer. I am not sure the card would show that, but they did play longer, except the par threes which were both in the 150 range with large greens. The 18th hole was a great finishing hole, long challenging par 4, open for the first 150 yards then trees lined both sides. There was a creek about 100 yards in front of the elavated green (and I mean elevated about 50 feet above the creek level). The green also had a huge deep bunker that guarded the right side. And even though I had a boogie I was able to win a skin on it and even up our match which we had to finish on the putting green. I would highly recommend this course if you are in the area and I would like to give it 5 stars, but those trees on the back nine not only cost me 3 strokes, but there are a lot of rocks in there and lets just say my 7 iron will never be the same. I will definitely go back, but when I am in the woods (notice I didn't say "if I am in the woods") I will feel around for hidden rocks better. Hope this helps. And if you go there enjoy and tell them the Maryland Mauler says hello, but I still think they owe me a 7 iron.
