“Beautiful, challenging golf course rated the top 5 university golf course in the US. Excellent condition and very playable, yet challenging. Fairways are very generous and the greens are exceptional. Would highly recommend if in area. Very good layout with many options of play. You'll use all the clubs in your bag. The pro shop staff are great and the restaurant is superb.”
