Wow. I didn't know Tolstoy played here before and lived to tell the tale. It's kind of a dull layout, not really anything of interest.

I like the layout. Good mix of holes. Enjoy the 3 pars. They are not easy. 5 pars are the holes to score.Good course to walk.Course condition is playable.The

The green on hole 15 is sick and wrong. If you hit it on the green just pick it up and call it a 2 putt. Trust me.

I thought this course was ok... not too scenic, but if you get a discounted rate, its worth the 4 hours.

Greens are crazy to read and fast... Course knowledge will really help your round.

All in all a decent course. Took me a few rounds to appreciate the good parts. Medium length course with rolling and hilly terrain and a good number of water hazards. Not that good for walkers.

The Good:
-fast undulating greens that are challenging to putt while receptive enough to reward well struck and aggressive approach shots.
-Pro shop and tee times are orderly and well managed. They announce every foursome on the tee which is a nice touch.
-Nice practice facility: big range and plenty of putting and chipping.

The Bad:
-Some of the sightlines off the tee, particularly the front nine are just awful. Almost impossible at times to distinguish between the hole you're on and the adjacent hole. Lots of local knowledge needed just to aim your tee shots at the correct fairway.
-Boring landscape, not many big trees, not much shade. The upscale-OC-industrial vibe that backdrops a lot of the course is a turn-off.
-Slow pace of play at times

RUDE Marshal. Nice Greens. Relatively flat course - great for walking. Crowded.
  Golferdog - 1/14/10
An average course that tends to play slow but it does have really interesting greens.
