Pros: This course is the most challenging of the three on this property, and has the best mix of different types of tests for your skills. There are some open bombs that mostly reward long shots with decent placement, technical wooded holes from ace runs to a 700'+ wooded tunnel, and some great water shots along the river. I really enjoyed the risk reward shots that offered a line over the water vs. a tighter but safer line over land, and the island hole was a nice touch.

You'll need all kinds of different shots here, with a good mix of left and right turning holes, and a nice variety of hole lengths. The concrete pads are nice and textured, with plenty of room on the long holes. The tee signs here are top notch, with hole maps and distances. The color coded baskets are a nice touch to distinguish the different courses.
Cons: There are some steep muddy hills on this course like on the other courses here, and some are already showing some erosion problems. A few areas around the creek were pretty muddy, and there was some long grass on some of the open fairways. This course felt the least broken in of the three, a little more work and some more traffic will make it feel more complete.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find this one pretty tough, with length, tight shots, and several water shots. The other two courses are available for newer players who might not have as much fun on this one. More experienced players will find a lot of variety and challenge here, and will need to bring their full bag of shots to score well.

This complex is definitely worth a stop, especially since it seems like it will only continue to improve. With three great courses in the ground and a family friendly loop coming soon, there's something for everyone here.

Pros: With 3 courses at this facility, There is a course to meet every skill level. There's also every shot in the bag out there as well.
Cons: Before getting into the valley itself, there are a few holes with some safety concerns designwise. While I've not run into problems there before, I would like to see more guardian trees to limit the possiblitiy of being bombed by wayward drives, and the terrain can be a bit rough in areas, but this will get better as it gets beaten in.
Other Thoughts: Make sure you leave plenty of room in your bag for a good camera. This place is photo ready. My son and I have both played all 3 courses. The Pro Course is top notch with more D than I've seen anywhere else in the state thus far. The intermediate course is an excellent blend of distance and tightness. The beginners course is a total birdie fest, but the elevation changes provide plenty of challenge even for the pros. Give this course a year, and it is going to be spectacular. If you are up this way, I believe this course is a MUST PLAY! The owners are class people, and the locals are knowledgable and always willing to join you for a round!
