Tier 1 shop. Pristine condition. The greens roll true... if you can get/stay on them. For the accurate golfer, wild shots here will not be rewarded. Blind approaches, wind, incredible views/elevation. Great golf experience.

definitely have to know the course, lots of blind shots. First timers will have some problems with ball placements. Greens were little slow. Overall, I enjoyed the course but the starter could use a crash course in manors and people skills. I would have to say, course was overpriced. Would I return? I doubt I would drive 70 miles to the boonies and pay premium green fees when there are so many better courses near me.

Like Ben said above, the greens have been in bad shape each time I've played here. I could play Glade Valley for $30 and have near perfect greens. For the price they charge here, it's not worth it.

Review is based on experience from 9/13/10:
Value: 3 stars because it was $79 which is on the upper end of what it costs to golf in the area yet the course conditions weren't as nice as cheaper courses. The GPS on the carts were nice when they were accurate. Was told numerous times to stay on the cart path on the Par 3's and close to the greens when all 4 tires were on the cart path.
Pace of Play: Didn't have any problems getting done in 4hrs playing ready golf, but had nobody in front of us the entire time.
Maintenance: Understanding we've had a drought lately and they aerated the last week of August, but there were far too many bare spots on the greens and patched places. Had to putt through sandy ground with no dirt on #15 green. Unacceptable at this price. Fairways and tee boxes were in excellent condition.
Had to hit off the mats at the driving range. Why isn't the grass area opened this time of year?
Hospitality: Got hassled for bringing a small cooler onto the course when nobody is around. Was told we HAD to use the coolers on the cart. What really does this accomplish other than pissing people off? The starter was a little gruff, but he could've been having a bad day.
Scenery: Most of the holes provide beautiful mountain views, but some of them border the interstate and another road diminishing the overall experience.
Overall: Generally a good place to play, but not worth $79. Play at a cheaper rate.

Beautiful course even during this drought. Everyone was very accommodating and pleasant. The GPS in the carts showed the groups in front of us and behind us, and even kept pace. Definitely not as crowded as other courses in the area and has a good array of challenging and fun holes.

Only $39 after 2:00 is a good deal. However conditions were not as good as expected. Several bad greens that were covered in sand. Others were so hard you could not even stop wedges. Not in as good as shape as thier neighbors Musket and Hollow.

A two-star experience all-around, for me and my party. We were rushed to the first tee, only to have to wait on every successive shot. A forced routing through valleys didn't add to the enjoyment and shotmaking.
