Course is really in excellent shape for fall, and I for one am amazed at the difference since my first visit a decade ago. The 6x16 matted tee pads are incredible! Plus new 'shelters' and steps. Amazing. Thank You!

A great mix of holes make up this technical course. Trees abound. Several small lakes come into play. Many holes with elevation changes. Three holes longer than ~500'. Signature hole is a "Tin Cup Island hole" where you have to land on the marked island from ~250' with a penalty stroke for missing. After three misses you move to the drop zone which is sometimes a "cage" from which you must throw.

Course layout changes as the owner desires. Two pin locations on some holes. Two new holes (23 total) added April 2011 between the original #12 and #13.
