This spectacular course features natural marshlands that come into play on several holes. The greens are well-bunkered, medium-sized and fast, and the fairways provide generous landing areas. Since the terrain is rolling, you should expect many uphill and downhill lies, plus a couple blind tee shots will be required. The signature hole is #4, a 340-yard, par 4, requiring a 230-yard carry (from the back tee) over marshlands to a medium-sized green with a picturesque, over-hanging tree. Another outstanding hole is #6, a 460-yard, par 4, featuring a split fairway. The pro shop has an illustration you can purchase of hole #8, a 540-yard, par 5, which has an elevated tee and a view of the marshlands beyond the green. "Golf Digest" rated this as the 7th "Best in State" course for 1997-98, and they also ranked it 4th among the "Top 10 Best New Upscale Courses" for 1996. "GOLF Magazine" also selected this course 68th in the 1998 category of the "Top Courses You Can Play In The U.S." This course has one of the largest driving ranges in the state with over twenty-seven stations. Teaching facilities are also available for private or group lessons. A new clubhouse was completed in 1997. Soft-spiked shoes are mandatory; if you don't have soft spikes, the club personnel will change them for you as part of the green fee.

Replace your divits and fix your ball marks!, Apr 30, 2004
|The layout of this course is similar to that of many modern courses, i.e., designed to sell homes. There are some good holes and some that appear a bit contrived. A fun course over-all. I was shocked to see the early-season condition of the course. Ball marks not repaired, bunkers not groomed, hundreds of divots not filled. At my course, I walk and carry a sand bottle, filling it 2-3 times during each 9 holes. No sand on the carts, and none on the tee boxes. The feeling was more 'muni' golf than that of an upscale public course.|
