So sorry the course is going downhill fast! Maintenance problems galore! Used to be awesome but now ... nowone plays due to poor conditions!

Owner should sell but refuses.

Thinking the course will close soon.

This is the first time I have played the course in 2 months. Weeds growing in the tee boxes, greens deteriorated, impression is of a course that is going under. Sad to see, I own two homes in the community, bought there because the golf course used to be first class........sad to see.

Greetings 3117143,

Thanks for taking the time to give us a review and we apologize for letting you down. The feedback is truly welcomed and appreciated.The course is a bit rough around the edges right now, but terrible is a mighty strong word. Although it may not be in in the same condition it was when you purchased here, we did indeed have several happy golfers on the course today. Please also know that we have changed direction with our agronomic plan and our superintendent. The new plan was activated today and we are excited about what the future has in store. Don't give up on us yet, because this golf course will shine once again!

Greetings Tim,

Firstly, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate the feedback and always share it with the team. We are going through a transition with some of our team and unfortunately a few areas on the course have looked better. I am happy to report, the greens are already on the mend! We hope to see you back out soon sir!

Greetings Mr. Buck,

I have some good news sir, the course is not going anywhere! We are actually just going through some staffing changes and a couple of the areas around the facility have been neglected a bit. We have several new action plans in place and the facility and course conditions will be improving everyday! Come back out and give us a chance to win a few stars back from you!

Thanks for taking the time to give us a review firedog73. We did receive some pretty good rainfall and wind during Irma and the water took several weeks to percolate back through the ground. We have dried out nicely and the food is on its way back in, give us another shot soon!

I have been playing this course for the last 7years and it is in the worst condition I have ever seen. The greens have large bare spots and there is a form of crabgrass throughout the greens. The fairways are the best part of the course, although they are still wet from the hurricane. Would not recommend playing this course.

Having played this course before, the first thing that was noticeable was the closure of the Pro's Shop. The girl behind the bar took the green fee after struggling to find the GolfNow booking on the computer. The only food on sale were chocolate bars and chips and drinks from the fridge or coffee machine. The cart had not been cleaned from the previous occupants - rubbish was left in it and the scorecard had been written on. There were still notices in the cart to suggest phoning the clubhouse with your food order. The greens on the back 9 were in a poor condition and although there was still evidence of tree damage from the hurricane, these did not affect the course. The young man in the clubhouse who served us on the turn was very friendly and helpful. The course was not busy so the round was completed in under 3hrs 45.

If this course gets much more rain, they might have to replace the golf carts with canoes.

Many of the wonderful old oak trees were uprooted and blown over by hurricane Irma. There's still a lot of restoration work to be done. However, the tee boxes, fairways and greens are in remarkably good condition, except for being very wet.

The course was very wet and almost unplayable in places. Balls got plugged in the wet ground. The rough was high making finding balls difficult. There was ponding of water on several fairways. Green need work. We were not told about it being "cart path" only until we were out on the course experiencing the wet conditions. I like this course, but not under these conditions.

This used to be a great course but is now sadly a mess. The grass had been cut but had not been hoovered up or blown to the sides, making it difficult to find your ball. A lot of the water was stagnant and was stinking. The greens was bald and covered in sand on a lot of them. Wooden bridges were closed off due to slats being broken and not repaired. The Pro shop is now non existant with only a few t-shirts and hats. I have played this course every time I visit the states but it has sadly been declining each time I've been. If things don't improve soon I can't imagine this place will survive much longer, which is a real shame.

Course was still wet/soggy on certain holes (probably still from Irma). Guess it will dry out soon. Most greens in good shape, some require some TLC.

Staff is super friendly, we enjoyed our round and will certainly play again

A good example of getting what you pay for. Considering hurricane Irma went through 2 weeks ago the course is in reasonable condition.mifvyou fancy a quick round away from the usual bustle then this is good value for money. Greens need a little work.

Conditions were awful, but what stood out to my wife and I, and the reason we will return again next year, was the fantastic customer service. young guy in pro shop was great, made us feel welcome, very funny and very accommodating. Brilliant young man, gave us ice water without us even asking and really helped us with rental clubs. Even suggested some places for dinner while we were in town. More golf courses need a young chap like this running the show. Thank you sir!

Mother nature has saturated this course, which forced the course management to call for "cart path only."

Integrity Golf had really let the condition of the greens get bad. Hopefully the new management group will work to correct that.

will be respectful as there has been an abundance of rain lately which greatly attributed to the course conditions. Not aware of the course layout was DEFINATELY a liability. Too many strokes lost into either one hidden body of water or another. Not on my return list ...

Booked as a hot deal. Price was good and there was an aeration note when booked. I have played many courses that had this notification and was expecting the greens to be rough but was not expecting the nasty black oily substance that was on every green. Was on the flag stick because others ahead of us had placed it on the green. It got on our clothing and would not come clean after laundering. Would not recommend playing this course until this stuff has worn off the greens.
