Manitou is essentially an executive golf course consisting of 14 par 3s and 4 par 4s. Even from the tips the par 4s are quite short. I used driver on only two of the par 4s and even at that I was questioning my choice.
There are three tee sets to choose from with the tips just exceeding 3,300 yards and the shortest set at 2,610 yards.
The course is very scenic. The bunkering around the greens makes for many picturesque holes. However, it's a shame that there are so many rocks in the bunkers. I was in sand a number of times and every time I had to remove many stones from around my ball before making a play. Many of these should be raked out.
The course can be very unfair for short hitters. A number of holes require a carry distance of over 100 yards. These holes can be very frustrating as it may mean that not every hole can be played. On these holes there are drop areas close to the green but that doesn't always substitute for not playing the entire hole.
Manitou contains some tricky greens and some tough pin placements can be had. The 10th and 18th hole share a large green that has a number of tiers and was quite interesting. The greens were very consistent and in good shape.
Play time was very slow. The course didn't seem overly busy yet it took just over 4 hours to complete our round. We couldn't determine where the slow play existed, and almost everyone was using a power cart.
The clubhouse is nicely situated and was suitable for the course layout. Golf Manitou would not likely hold very many tournaments.
I didn't see a beverage cart on course and I would have appreciated it the day we played.
There is a decent range to warm up on before your round. The practice putting area beside the clubhouse has a unique design and is quite fun.
