I finally got a chance to play this course recently. I’ve heard a lot of good about it. It didn’t disappoint. With the greens going dormant for winter, they putted very fast. I’d definitely come back again. BTW, we played the Cameron/Stewart nines.

Love the course and we had friends in town and played golf. This is one of our go-to places to play in the area. Tim Cate did a wonderful job in creating this track. Kudos to the grounds crew and staff.
