We arrived at the course to find it aerated, although that was disappointing, it's actually expected this time if year. So first off, we paid MUCH less than originally expected (love that). Next my friend needed to rent clubs (yuck. Usually junk and costly), he tells my friend $20 and here's your Nike Vapors! Oh by the way....he killed them all day. Next was the course, we loved the set up and although I wouldn't call it tight, you still needed to be pretty straight. The good news was that most errant shots were still playable as a punch out. Greens had been aerated which made them tough, but we simply used "inside the leather" as a pick up and it worked out well. Lastly after our round we asked about playing another 9, he said " just go ahead and hit em. Now you tell me, what other vacation/tourist locale would do that? Needless to say AZALEA SANDS GOLF COURSE is on my "to do" list from now on.

Bad fairways bad greens. Seemed like I was hitting out of sand 80% of the time and Only hit 3 bunkers max. no water or ball cleaners on any tee boxes. Hard to putt bc of aeration. Made the most of it tho. doubt I'd be back

Played 9 holes at this course after getting bored one day during a beach vacation. Nothing really noteworthy about the course, in decent condition and not much terrain. Almost every green on the front nine is surrounded by sand traps which is the greatest challenge to the course. Definitely worth a round to save some money and hit some balls.

There was a back up of several groups to start and therefore felt rushed. Good and fair Course layout. Due to the dry weather conditions, there were bare spots on or near some fairways. The score card did not show all the hazards which caused problems. Greens in good condition. They were tough but fair. At right price, would play again when visiting area.

Course was in decent shape, the staff was very friendly. Biggest problem was pace of play, we (twosome) started at 1 and didn't finish until after 5, played through two groups and then we're stuck on the back 3 holes by a foursome that saw no need to maintain a decent pace. Needs a Marshall to keep things moving.

This course has gone down hill the past several years. This year was ok for the money but you can do better. One big negative is wasn't one ball washer on the golf course?? Not sure what their future is but they need to improve conditions.

Arrived there and had a friendly talk to starter and was told that we could tee off. We went to the first tee and played it in 2+ hrs. Made the turn and found a backup of 4 groups in front of us of which the group that lead us in the front 9 were nowhere to be found. I asked the starter on the turn what had happened and he said we were supposed to start on 10 even though he didn't tell us. It appears that they always start on 10 since the tee box is closest to the starter. Round was 5 1/2 hrs. I was patient but felt awkward since the starting groups thought we were butting in. Course was nice when built but is in great need of repairs. Trees are still down from Hurricane Mathew from last year. We did enjoy the back nine since we joined up with a Canadian couple who were very nice.

I am by no means a great golfer, in fact I am still struggling in getting below 100, but I have to say the conditions here were awful. The tee boxes and pretty much all the areas around the fairways were like hitting off concrete, every hole was surrounded by bunkers, and the greens themselves were all sorts of uneven/rough. Again, I'm not a great golfer, but all these things together really skewed the experience.

That being said, some good things: staff was friendly, service was immediate, overall off-course stuff was great.

(Note that the cost for the round was only the cart fee, as this course is part of the timeshare I was staying at)

We arrived early to use the range only to find out contrary to the course description that there were no free range balls as there is no range. However they allowed us to go out early and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The greens need to be rolled and some of the traps cleaned up but overall a good value for the money.

I was looking for another day of golfing when I found this course on Golf Now for a reasonable amount. The reviews claimed the greens were terrible but I found them to be smooth and true rolling over all. The fairways were green and the pace excellent (at 1:20). I ran into another single player (Bob) who had a snowbird membership and he helped me around the course with hints on positioning, etc. I wouldn't pay much more than $27 to play this but over all it wasn't as bad as other reviews might have you believe.
