    Nation View is a new and challenging 18-hole par 72 golf course with 4 par 3, and 4 par 5 holes. 13 of 18 holes have water close by.
    Nationview was designed and constructed by Doug Durant and family in 1994-96, on 130 acres of previously undeveloped land. It was opened in July '96 with the official opening June 14, 1997 for the first full season.
    This unique course has maintained the natural beauty of the lay of the land, as evidenced by the strategically placed clumps of pine and birch trees, and the addition of colorful flower beds with rail fences. Play is over the Nation River twice and beside it twice, with both treed and open fairways. Fairways are a mixture of bluegrass and fescue with total yardage of 6,444 from the blue tees; 6,121 from the white tees; 5,193 from the red tees. Bent grass greens are approximately 4,000"5,000 sq. ft. in total and are well maintained.

    Varying sizes and shapes. Greens were fine with the exception of green #5. In my opinion, horseshoe greens are just not something to create on a golf course.
    Good conditioned fairways. 150 markers are white posts with birdhouses atop.
    It's difficult to find other yardage markers nor do I believe the yardages to be very accurate.
    The fairways were quite generous in width but I've never seen so many golfers wandering about crossing fairways they're not playing.
    Relatively flat tees. A bit hard to place your tee in the ground.
    Three sets of tees ranging from 5200 to almost 6500 yards.
    A few odd holes to be aware of.
    Where is the green on #4? It looks like it is straight ahead but it actually is the green for #12.
    The par 5 #13 takes a shape dogleg left off the tee so you won't be using your drive unless you're sure you can carry the trees.
    Keep a close eye on the scorecard and yardage signs at each hole.
    Average pricing for the area and worthy of a play.
    Not overly difficult or long.
    Nationview can be challenging as there's a few well placed hazards.
    I have nothing to note as to scenic items or any kind of vibe I got while playing Nationview.
    I always feel courses are missing out on a cash cow when the weather is warm and there isn't a beverage cart making the rounds.
    There was one pop machine near the start of the course and the Clubhouse is on the opposite side of the road.
    Staff was pleasant when available. I had to buzz the Pro Shop to get someone back to it get my deposit on the golf cart.
    The pro shop was very well equipped with lots of equipment and clothing.
    Clubhouse sold a decent sandwich and pricing was fair.
    After paying, we loaded up the golf cart with our clubs, and we were then lost. We could not find a sign or even guess at where the first tee was located. We had to ask someone in the parking lot.
    I was asked to leave a deposit on the golf cart. Attendant asked for $5, I gave him $20 and he said he'd keep $10. This is the first time I have ever had to leave a cash deposit on an electric cart. Where was I going to go?
    Despite any negative comments I have the overall enjoyment of playing Nationview was not negative.
    I did appreciate the Marshal regularly making his rounds and I'm sure I saw him at lease half a dozen times. He was doing a very good job.
