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.

Good value and a good warm-up but with all the other courses in the area it really doesn't rate too high on the list of replay.

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.

Good for higher handicap and not so long hitters.

There is water in places but we'll marked and not so much that it is able to be navigated.

The course is fairly straight forward, with enough water holes and bunkers to keep it interesting. The greens need some work, but it's early in the season and they had dressed them so it made for some okay, but not great, putting. We had two problems. The person placing the bags on the cart did not strap on one of the bags properly and it fell off on the first hole. He also didn't know the course for washroom locations. Secondly, the one cart we had kept failing on the course and we actually had to push it a couple of times to get it going again. We advised management at the end of the round, but they didn't seem to really care - just said that it happens some times. As far as I'm concerned I don't think that should ever happen. So all in all, it probably won't be our first choice to go back again.
