    A little disappointed with IMG since the internationally recognized name made me think this would be an upper crust experience - average at best - no breakfast or lunch or anything else on Mondays.
    Steve() 3/24/2017
    The best course we played on this year's trip. Challenging enough for my 4 handicap son yet easy enough for me to enjoy as well. It would definitely be on our list for future trips.
    Cindy(Ann Arbor) 3/24/2017
    Great course and very woman friendly. Great staff who made us feel welcome.
    Richard() 3/2/2017
    If you want a great course, don't miss this course, difficult for the high hancapper but it's in great shape and fun to play.
    Leo (Bradenton FL ) 9/30/2016
    Course and Staff were great. Would play here again.
    David(Oshawa ON) 4/29/2016
    Tees were in very bad shape. Fairways were average. Not good value for the cost.
    Kevin(New Bedford , Ma) 4/11/2016
    A public golf course. Tee conditions a little tough. Greens were very good. Nice layout Staff helpful.
    ML(Bradenton) 2/26/2016
    So-so course. Nothing special and not in great shape. 1, it's winter but expected better.
    Dennis(elkin, nc) 2/12/2016
    Well conditioned, challenging for the better golfer. Several holes had hazards, such as creeks, in unexpected places that were not evident from the tee and the diagrams on the score card were too small to comfortable read. It would really benefit from markers on the tee boxes giving diagrams of the hole. Would probably not play there again.
    Paul(Toronto Canada) 12/7/2015
    Lovely course with a nice layout and true greens. Polite staff.
    Ralf(Germany) 12/4/2015
    Would play again. Good conditions Overall reasonably priced.
    Sally() 4/3/2015
    Ok, but don't think we'd play there again.
    Mark() 3/13/2015
    I really liked the layout, and there were some very challenging holes.
    William(Indianapolis, IN) 2/19/2015
    Not much in terms of quality for warmup. Course was nice but rather basic on frills.rained that day
    Kun(lake forest, IL) 1/30/2015

    Allan(Gatineau - QC CANADA) 12/4/2011
    Arrived with a group of 8 from the Ottawa region and it was a first for our group to play this course. We where all in favor to say that the course gave us more than expected and enjoyed our stop. Recommended for your package if you decide to go in that a
