Closed. Owner had gone bankrupt. I feel bad for people that built homes on this golf course. Their property has reduced in value and will be difficult if not impossible to sell. Originally this was a beautiful course designed by Arnold Palmer.

This is a very good layout. Very playable, but it will test you. Views throughout the course are worth seeing. Great value. Good for all handicaps.
