Items very expensive in this store. $1 tree items costing triple. But, guess if one needs something, they can get it.

By far one of the most picturesque golf courses one will ever play. It was BEAUTIFUL! Now for the suggestions. Number 1 Please get reflectors on the pins so players can get yardage from there Laser Link guns. Really they have been out since 1999 why don't you have them. It makes the walking from the 100, 150 markers unnecessary... More

Spent 3 days golfing and on three different courses. Not wait times and very friendly staff. Would consider renting a home for a week next time. This is a great place to take young golfers to learn and spend time with the families. Especially the East course

I Truly enjoy playing the General, But the best time to play is twilight! Not having to dish out major cash for a day in mid sun. Instead relax don't be hurried and enjoy your game with the sun gently going down. I've played it where I have seen the deer almost like watching my game. (it's not good) to... More

The South Course is a nice challenge. Tight fairways and well placed hazzards. I prefer it to the General.

The General was a beautiful course, but their staff needs some training. Very snooty, gave the impression that they didn't want us there! Played the South course the next day (AWESOME service), hard to believe this the same organization. If we return have no desire to play the General again.

It was a lovely hilly wooded course that presents lots of opportunities to lose golf balls. Control is the key here!

What a fun course to play. Very much a target golf course with a few spectacular holes on the back nine. The back nine is by far the best. Would definitely play again. Price wasn't too bad for a higher end course either. 14 is a very unique hole that you can see 3 different states from the tee box... More

I hope this is the General Store. Their roast beef sandwich was the best I have ever eaten! And I'm old!
