"Hole 8 to 9 is tough to find. They marked where to go in a very odd spot. Tee pads are built for people 4’4” and smaller. Most the holes are very fair with tight lines but the shots are repetitive. Hole 7 is one of the worst holes I’ve ever played 16 being a par 3 makes zero sense"

"Tough course if your used to open fairways. Really wet in the spring but usually dries up by May/June. Bunch of people complain about all the baskets being par 3, but basket 16 is the only huge drive and I've seen it birdied (only once). Every year the course looks better and better, it's still fairly new. Lots of tight woods shots to challenge you. The course is pretty flat and there are no significant level changes. The rough is very rough, down right jungle. Bring bug spray."
