The scenery is pretty but it is in the middle of what appears to be a state park so that helps.
For mid to high hdcp players, we found the course to be different from what we were used to.
For starters, the fairways seemed to be as hard as a rock and not much grass was growing (early May they should have more). What I thought were good drives in the fairway ran forever and ended up in rough or worse. Several holes require a lay-up which leads to water - my suggestion, club down at least 1 maybe two clubs. Two of these holes, I picked the right club, hit the right distance, only to have the ball roll forever down the concrete (fairway) into a hazard because there was no rough to stop it.
Leave your ball/pitch mark repair tool at home - no need. The greens were like concrete when we were there. Several times I stuck the green with a 60 deg wedge thinking I'd have a chance at par or birdie only to find that my (and everyone else in my groups) ball had rolled off the side or back of the green. I like fast greens, but landing a high 7i should leave a pitch mark and stick, not bounce 4' up and run off the back.
It may be that it isn't what I'm used to and everyone else loves it, but if I'm in the area again, it won't be high on my list of places to play.
