very nice links course, need to stay in the fairways deep fescu grass on the sides very narrow fairway around 150 yrds but opens up at 200 plus, try the coooold mango towls.  some investors that are out of san antonio (i think red mcombs) was one, looks like they are going to pump a bunch of money into this course wear your sun screen it's going to be hot and sunny and possably windy when you are here

Nice course. If you go into the brush, forget looking for your ball.

 

First course I ever played with no trees. :-)

 

Getting around the course was a little odd, as you have to go over the highway a couple times.


The mango towels are a nice touch, although one of the coolers on the back 9 was empty the day I played.

 

Decent practice facility. The staff was very nice. I'd play it again if I had the opportunity.
