It's a great layout. Course was little rough due to a tornado that hit a month before. Probably should have switched courses or been advised too.

Things got better with this course. Bunkers still had deep grooves from run off. But this course didn't have near the sand as Panthers Run. Greens were in good shape and had been mowed recently. Tee boxes were good. Probably the best condition course of the 4 we played.
