The least enjoyable Arnold palmer golf course I have ever played. No signature hole average design. I did not see a cart lady the whole time 18 holes. Also nothing to fix divots with. The course was a little damp but fairly well kept up....More

Weather was outstanding. Course was in good condition. Lots of bunkers especially around the greens. Tight lies but that is pretty standard of most all the courses around here at this time of year. Greens are fast but roll very nicely. Pretty expensive. We enjoyed...More

This Arnold Palmer designed golf course really is fun to play. Regardless of tees played, it offers a rewarding challenge any month of the year. It fashions a very good golf course spaciously throughout a residential development. I highly recommend it.

Sometimes no course maintenance is a good thing! Seems like all the courses in the area had been punched at the exact same time! So my usual vacation courses were not playable and I had to get my golf fix. So I ended up having...More

While this is one of the more expensive courses in the area, the price is reasonable compared to other golf resort locations. We visited in early March and we played a couple of other courses that were still brown. This course was lush-- fairways and...More
