We played here while on vacation. I loved the layout and the everything about it. The fairways were somewhat wet l. But they had just gotten 4"of rain so it's understandable. We had a great time and would love to come back sometime

Good people work here. Treated is great. We had just got off the plane and wanted to get the clubs working. This place was conveniently located and we played the course very efficiently. I would play here again. It's not a glamour spot; more like your neighborhood course here in Michigan where I am from. For a golfer like me, Ilthisbplace appeals to me. Thanks for a good experience.

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.
