Course Reviews

This is not a course for the faint of heart. It is amazing but extremely tough. Truly one of my favorites to play. I recently GPS tracked it and you will walk 2.5 miles with some hills. It has a wide variety of open field and wooded holes (the wooded holes have very tight windows with lots of trees). It has a wide variety of distances some around 300 ft with others pushing 600 and one hole that is 1000 ft! The course winds through valleys and crosses many creeks along the way. It is not only fun but has beautiful nature the whole course. I highly recommend to all players that are up for a challenge

Well everyone loves this course so of course I love this course as well its just really good not flip city style good but great in its own right. It has a huge 1000+ hole but you go off the fairway and your screwed some trimming would go a long way with all the snakes and pocket bushes. Also shade in this course is far and in between which in reality is not picking this course it's still quite good.

Excellent challenge for anyone. Start with IdleMild (No out of bounds) and then take on IdleWild. Well maintained by the course pro and hole sponsors.

Beautiful course, wish it was in my city. Mostly up and down steep hillsides. Island greens add to difficulty. Challenging by distance and technical requirements. Not cart friendly. Took about 3.5 hours for an experienced foursome to play.

This is my favorite course I've been to. Very nice tee pads and signs. A tough course with great scenery. The 1,000 ft. hole is awesome! I can't wait to go back.
