Three of us played the reserve at the twilight rate while staying at the lodge. Not the longest course but rewards you for hitting it straight. Greens were in great shape. Staff was pleasant. Would definitely play again.

The golf course struck me as not too hard, not too easy, perhaps not sufficiently challenging for scratch players, but fine for me. It is also a very attractive golf course even though one hole was flooded on the approach. More challenging, right? The lake...More

The morning breakfast buffet bar with personal made to order omlette is exceptional. Sometimes there is not a good selection of good desserts. And not always generous with their carved meat. Atmosphere is excellent.

Golf course was wonderful. Lots of rain the week before and some washout areas, but the tees and greens were outstanding. The greens putted very true and were receptive to good shots. It is a course with some player friendly fairway widths and played very...More

We were disappointed in the condition of the course. Early in the year but should have been better. Also, the gentleman who handled the carts was great.

Very nice, well kept, challenging and somewhat forgiving. If you tend to miss the fairway on occasion, bring extra balls. They maintain the fairway and rough, oob is tall prairie grass that gobbles up balls. Greens are nice and the layout is such that you...More
