Lion's Paw
Course was very wet and had to do cart paths only. It's apparent that they have had a lot of rain as the fairways were soggy and eliminated all roll.
Clubhouse waitstaff service was poor. Not very friendly and very slow

Lions Paw
Not bad for a middle scale course. The group felt a little hurried by the constant, but very kind reference to pace of play. The group did finish within the 4.25 hour requirement

Like these courses

High rough
Played the course on Oct 24,2012. Took 5+ hours and probably spent 1 hour looking for golf balls in the rough. The ball would settle down in the bermuda grass and were real hard to find you often had to be right above the ball to see it. Course was very good and a challange.

Another Cat in the series
We played this course years ago right after heavy rains each time. This week we finally played it in good conditions and it did not let us down. Very nice course.
#4 - Tim - 10/17/2012 - 11:44
my least favorite of all the Cats
#3 - Dianne - 10/10/2012 - 14:31
Nice course would play again
Nice course to play with the guys, would not play again with golfers who are either not experienced or are picking their ball up to avoid slow play.

Facilities are beautiful, rangers are nice - play was good pace no waiting and skilled golfers about that understood how to play the correct pace of the game.

Will be on my list of 'will play again'.
