    I played this course on a Monday in September, it was sunny and about 70 degrees but a very strong & gusty wind, maybe 20 to 25 mph.

    I had never played this course before so that certainly impacted conditions of play and my experience overall.

    I would say, the front nine on this course is much better than the back nine. The back has many holes with blind shots, extreme dog legs, many berms with rolling hills and fairway and green side bunkers that are not easily visible and can make it difficult playing the first time.

    In general the course is OK. The tee boxes and fairways are good.
    There are some narrow fairways on many holes where you are heavily penalized and risk going into the high rough on fairway lined creeks.
    The greens were mixed, OK on some holes but on most of them pock marked with un-repaired ball marks.

    The pace of play was good on a Monday afternoon, I was playing solo and had a twosome in front of me and a solo in back of me. I was able to play 18 holes in about 3 hours.

    The toughest hole is the Par 5, 18th that plays 460 yards but you have water at about the 150 yard mark which is a challenge.

    The Staff is nice, the gas carts were clean and in good order. Visually, it’s nice with ponds, creeks and branches running throughout. The cart paths wind through the housing area, I crossed under 3 tunnels where the road goes over. When you come off the 17th green and drive the cart path you come to a large lake and the road forks. There is no sign.
    There was a nice man walking his dog and he said “the 18th tee is that way’. Otherwise I would have had no idea I needed to go left.

    It’s a decent value overall I would say. I got the GolfNow discount at $38 bucks.

    It’s about 45 minutes from my house in Fort Mill, SC so it wasn’t really an exceptional enough experience to make me feel as though I would want to play it again as there are too many better choices that are much closer to where I live.
