Played 07/27 at 0812...first tee time. Interesting start to the day...the guy in the pro-shop told us we were first and could go out early (got there about 0730) since the range is closed on mondays for maintenance. Standing on the first tee waiting for the grounds crew to finish blowing the first fairway the starter rolls up around 0745 and proceeds to say "there's 30 minutes before you can tee off". After telling him what the pro shop rep said, his answer was "I don't give a d%mn what they said in there" and he drove off. We did end up getting out a little early (0805 or so), but an interesting start to the day.
Course itself is undergoing maintenance. Only the back 9 is playable right now as they replace all the bridges on the front. Not sure what the normal rack rate is there, but we paid $115 for our experience. If they didn't, they for sure should have discounted the rate. What we played of the course was a fun enough layout, but would have liked to play the front 9 too for sure.
Greens - 9/10. Greens rolled true, nice and smooth, were very receptive and you could spin the ball as well. Easily the best part of the course.
Fairways - LOVE the fairways here. Lush, full, green...everything a resort course should be and more. Would rate these a 9/10 ONLY due to a few spots that were a little dried out and could use a little extra water.
Tees - 9/10...could be because we played so early, but they were full, flat and not too many divots.
Bunkers - 3/10...for a course that paid attention to everything else, the sand was awful. Wish I would have got a picture, but it was like a thin layer of sand on top of a mud pit.
Rough - 7/10...some thin spots and some that were extremely long. Could find your ball and hit out of it so definitely playable.

Ok kinda a goofy hole here? Par 4 331 from the blue, with 3 areas seperated by a stream. The tee shot comes from the first area, over the stream to the landing area. Be as far right as you can be here so as not to be blocked by very tall trees blocking the left side. 215 yards to reach the bunker on the right. The second shot is the most demanding shot !130 yards up hill into the wind to a skinny green with bunkers all around .
Long par 3 , 211 from the tips. A stream is only in play if you hit one really fat. Elevated green with 4 very large bunkers all over the place. Be a pro for one shot and hit the green! Tuff up and down from any of the bunkers.
