NEW NAME: FANTASY VALLEY. Not as nice as its sister course, Lodestone, but playable. For the $39 special rate we received, it was a fair deal. Pro's: fairways were in good shape, bunkers had good sand, and the greens were simpler to read and putt on. Con's: they changed some of the holes so make sure you update your GPS or you won't have the correct information (which I didn't), the front nine is choppy with extremely narrow fairways and ponds on two holes which challenge club selection and course management, and this is a par 71/70 (5 par 3's for back tees and 6 par 3's for forward...who has 6 par 3's????) I did not like the front nine because of narrow fairways, unpredictable bounces (typically into the woods when you hit the fairway), and choppy layout; however, the back nine was much more reasonable in terms of layout. Not one I would play again, although some people seemed to like it.
