We had a foursome with a tee time set for 2:00 pm on a Friday. Tee times were running on time even though a tournament was finishing up. The staff was outstanding and the course was in excellent shape. Definitely a top notch facility!

Great course and very challenging. Has some difficult water holes. Nice patio to rest on after with a cold one!

The Rail is a well maintained 18 hole Robert Trent Jones designed course that until recently hosted the State Farm LPGA Classic. Water is only a feature on a few holes, but bunkers abound. Tricky undulations in the greens allow very few straight putts. This...More
