    Hillcrest is a good value for $36 for 18 holes, and the setting is spectacular with mountain views all around.

    The greens are elevated, fast and difficult. If you don't get in the fairway, the rough is generally forgiving.

    HIllcrest tends to be very busy in summer, and you're likely to have groups in front and behind. If you show up as a single or pair, the pro shop will usually combine you with another group. Also, this course is very popular with seniors who own second homes or visit the area seasonally.

    The course is walkable, although a couple of holes are sharply uphill. Most golfers use a cart here. I walk, but expect a workout if you do so.

    I like many of the holes at Hillcrest, but a few are mediocre at best. No. 15, a par 3, looks as if it were shoehorned into the course. No. 17 is a difficult and long par 5 with a dogleg right, but I could do without the unnatural OB hill on the right that comes into play the first two shots. No. 1 is an unusually tough opening hole with water left and the driving range right. Many courses are better designed so the driving range isn't in the middle of the course.

    No. 4 is a good par 4 and no. 5 is a solid par 3. No. 9 is a tough par 3 with an especially challenging green and a large bunker front-right of the green to finish the front nine. No. 11 is the most picturesque par 3 and requires the golfer to carry a pond. No. 14, a short downhill par 4, is a good scoring opportunity.

    Overall,HIllcrest is a nice course and a good value, but it's not exactly a design classic.
