    - very challenging with wind factor, 80 something bunkers, as much water as sand, "wrist breaking" wild long rough with creepy critters, plenty of yardage with over 7400 from the back challenges the longest hitters, almost as challenging from the blue tees and white tees, many hidden landing areas, wide fairways when they are found and large, undulating greens.
    - greens were sanded, thankfully according to other comments about their speed, but the pin placements felt like Sunday at the Masters looks, due to bunkers and hazards from almost every angle on approach.
    - will definitely play again after preparing for this monster. ...and "healing".
    - only discounted a half star because the course looks very nice but is actually just mean, so I got a stroke back.

    Beautiful course with a very unique footprint. Challenges you to hit the right club on nearly every shot with high-winds being the primary challenge. Great green complexes and bunker positioning. Awesome condition.

    Found this course enjoyable to play. If you're looking for a challenge then don't bother playing from the white tees, just too close. Blues or Blacks are the way to go. The greens were unbelievably fast. Fairways were in great shape but beware, if you're not straight with your drive there is a good chance you'll lose your ball in the high grass. All in all, an fun course to play.

    Great course. Very challenging but rewarded with well placed tee shots. Couldn't belive this course was only $40 a round. Doesn't get much better for the money. I can't wait to go back.

    Challenging 18 hole course. The back nine harder than the front nine. I play here several times a year and I enjoy it every time.

    The review is out-dated information. The course is 18 holes. It is a public course. The first 9 holes are out in in an undeveloped area. While the last 9 holes wind through a partially developed community. It is a quiet and beautiful prairie course. They have excellent customer service and practice areas. High class course on the outskirts of the city. Easy access to E-470, DIA, Buckley and the Metro area.
