    Great course great staff treated me awesome. my first time there ladies in pro shop commented on my Walrus wear shirt. told them he lives in Evergreen I have delivered fedex pkgs to him. One of the ladies bought some clubs from a mutual friend.
    However im playing by myself hit a couple of balls per hole sometimes catch up to a twosome on hole 1 wich we played backnine first. they didnt ask me to join and I thought that was rude since this is a gentlemans game. I never saw a marshall but it took me an hour and 30 on front nine 1 hour to play 1and 2.I quit was very dissapointed and embarressed by how some people act. Nice course though its was in great shape
