SUMMARY

The White Nine at Scott Lake is maintained just as well as the other reviewed nine (See Scott Lake Golf Course – Gold Nine), and maybe slightly better in the water aspects, which lends us to believe there is a true consistency of maintenance and quality throughout the course. The White nine will provide a good and fun, challenging time whether paired with the Gold Nine or yet to be review Red nine. Definitely a good value play. See our video of Scott Lake Golf Course.

The greens and the fairways rate the highest and most consistent at a 8.00.
