We came out here with 3 others and found the course to be a good bargain versus the quality of the course. The greens had just been aerated but still were very true and did not cause a lot of issue. Well worth your time to check this one out.

Our Bunn Golf Course league played our year-end outing here on Saturday. This Rail Golf Course was in excellent condition. The course is a challenging course with trees, bushes, numerous sand bunkers, and several water hazards. Some of the fairways are narrow, but the course is fairly wide open. Greens are very fast, and cup placement can be challenging. Every... More

The Rail is a well maintained 18 hole Robert Trent Jones designed course that until recently hosted the State Farm LPGA Classic. Water is only a feature on a few holes, but bunkers abound. Tricky undulations in the greens allow very few straight putts. This can play relatively easy or very tough depending on pin placements and tee locations.

This course was formerly the site of an LPGA tour event. Nicely challenging but somewhat forgiving in its layout. You'll enjoy a round there!

The LPGA played here for years. The fairways are good, plenty of landing area and challenge.
