Member Reviews:

This is a really nice course and caputes exactly what the designer was hoping for.  Shaping is done wonderfully and there is plenty of variety of different types of holes and shots required to score well.

Great course well worth many rounds.

Canuck's Course Critiques

A Solid Open Design

-Gorgeous lighting..looks just spectacular
- Some of the views off the tee...just wow.
-Middle holes (7-15) were very good-excellent category
-Very nice bunkering
-Fantastic finishing hole

-Many greens were lackluster, a bit on the small side.
- Plays a bit too soft for my liking. Good golfers will have their way with this course
-Some "meh" opening holes as well as 16 and 17

Verdict- A very solid course that is worth your time. Enjoy the views! Recommended 4.25/5
