Course Review and Comments
For starters, the slope/course rating give this course no justice. It is full of trees, the fairways dogleg on hard 90 degree angles (almost always to the left), the greens are elevated and convex, making what would appear to be a perfect approach shot roll off the green. Reading putts was a guessing game due to the mountains and mysterious breaks. While the front nine played easier, the greens were brutal. The back nine gives relief on the greens, but the course gets very hazardous (not as single bunker, but some water and LOTS of trees).
There are many elevated t-boxes, so driving is a blast. There are many holes, both par 4 and 5 where the driver should be left in the bag due to the hard doglegs. We overshot the fairways into the trees a few times.
One of the best parts of this course is it is a well kept secret. The stay and play deal is outstanding. While the lodge and furnishings are a bit antiquated, the rooms were perfectly clean with new TV's and satelite channel service. The bar is vintage and neat with a simple, but adequate menu. The restaurant was closed for the season, but the locals apparently love it. Last, the management was awesome, going out of their way on several occasions for my buddie and I, who were the only ones there.

Beautiful location and great layout. The back 9 is in the mountains, nice staff and friendly people.
