This course was built on rolling terrain and features fast greens and narrow fairways. Towering pine trees line all the fairways, and meandering streams come into play on a few holes. One of the key features to this course are its sharp changes in elevation, so expect some interesting lies. In addition, many strategically-placed bunkers guard the fairways and greens, and water hazards come into play on eight holes. "Golf Digest" rated this course as the 8th "Best Public Course" in the state for 1996. In addition, "Golf Digest" rated this course 17th best under the category of "America's Top 75 Affordable Courses" in their 1996 list of "America's Best Golf Courses Everyone Can Play." The same publication ranked it as the 11th "Best in State" course for 1995-96, and 13th best for 1997-98. This course was redesigned by Rees Jones.

|A long, challenging course that forces you to play your best in every aspect of your game. It features classic rolling terrain and an interesting series of hazards. I think this is one of the finest courses around, and a bargain at that. The course is maintained to the finest standards. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this course to world class players.|
