So there are so many spectacular course on the south end, that you could pick and choose any to play for the rest of your life, I had not even thought about playing this course until I ran out new ones to try down here. I was expecting a bad course, well being surprised is an understatement. I won't get carried away, this course is not as good as most on the south strand, which is unfortunate because this would succeed anywhere else. It is a fairly strong layout, elevation changes and waste bunkers define the course. It does have its flaws, no range, sub par conditioning (blame it on the budget to stay in business), and road crossings. Usually I don't care about road crossings, it separates the wholes from each other which helps in framing the individual holes. But on the front 9, it was a little ridiculous, not only crossing a busy road, but actually riding on it. Oh well, quite the experience. If you're looking to play a course you haven't played, then go down there and keep it running.

Nice Layout. Lot's of waste bunkers but very playable. Several holes with elevation changes with is unusual for MB. Nice Touch. Not everybody's type of course but not overly difficult. Pace of play was excellent. #9 is a great par 5....

I was a little disappointed in this course. The layout was okay, but not spectacular. The condition for February was good, but not great. I felt this course was over priced. Cost is for a premium course but it is not. There are many other courses that cost less but offer more. I would play this course again but it would have to be a great deal.

We enjoyed the course, but of the five courses we played this was #5 in value for the money. You can play much better courses for the same price, or comparable to better courses for less money

I this course to be just ok. It was presented as a high quality/high end course with multiple accolades. First, there is no range for warm-up. There is only a net with a few rotten practice balls scattered about. The course itself was in decent, but not great, shape and had enough challenges to make it interesting. The staff was friendly, but not effusive. While we played "out-of-season", this course should charge 25-50% less for their fees.
