Excellent course and no pushover - greens are fast and tough. Lots of golf shots needed to play it well.

Starting with the good news.
Conditioning - Well maintained course
no Bev Cart service the day I played.
Halfway house well positioned.
Pro Shop - small with basic apparel
Club House - nice with bar and dining area
Fairways - great condition
Bunker - good fine sand
Greens - Nearly US Open speed. around 10-11 on the stimp the day I played. Got this from the directly from the greens keeper. A lot of spines and undulations on the greens.
Hazards - Water comes into play on many holes. numerous bunkers in good shape
Staff - The staff was great, nice, polite helpful, except for halfway house.
For Garmin G5 users the 9's were reversed
at some point.
The Bad news.
Tight OB on every hole. White stakes lining the Cart path. This isn't about golf, it's about selling homes on a golf course.
If you are mid to high handicapper, skip this course. you probably won't like it shooting 100 and loosing a dozen balls.
Perhaps if they don't build the planned houses and go back and rethink the course layout this could be a great course.

Nice Course, good for the long hitters or weekend golfers.

This is a great layout. It;s not your typical course in this area where anyone who can hit it 240 and straight off the tee plays wedge approaches all day. This one makes you THINK on a lot of holes. This course is in great shape, greens roll true. All carts have a GolfLogix GPS unit, and the starter is very nice. A fully stocked Halfway house which you can stop at after 4, 11, and 14. The only thing missing is a classic clubhouse, which I would expect to come in time.

Best greens I've played. Very fast and very true. Not the longest course, several holes require less than driver. Most fairways are generous, but danger lurks.

WAY out in Marengo, but well worth the trip. This course is in great shape as it should be for only being a couple years old. Lots of empty lots along the course; likely due to the housing collapse. This will be a must play in the next few years
