First, the good news. The staff is very nice, friendly, and accommodating from the Pro Shop to the Starter to the restaurant staff to the cart guys. They really make you feel special. For the bad news, unfortunately, I still don't understand why people rave about this course...maybe my expectations are just higher. Every green on this course was in bad shape with bare spots that have been painted over to make it look green. Additionally, the fairways are simply not in that good of shape...bare spots, thin grass, huge divots, soggy/wet areas, crabgrass, and burned edges. This is not a premier or pristine course--it is well worn and in bad need of some TLC and attention to get it in shape to charge $79-$99. It simply isn't worth that rack rate (and I don't mind paying a high rack rate as long as I get the value). Even at the $55 Golfnow.com rate, I didn't see the value. We had with us someone who had never played the course before but heard "rave reviews." He shared he was disappointed in the condition of the course. I still stand by my previous reviews that there are other courses within an hour which are in better condition, more reasonably priced, and more interesting layout.
