This is a fun, short and sometimes challenging course. It is a great way to work on your short game. Nice pace to the greens compared to the slick as snot stuff found on most Florida courses. Always a great rate and can be played in 2.5 hours on a slow day.

We had a great time. Sneaky water and sand trap placement made for some surprises. Greens and fairways were in good condition. My only beef? Players apparently don't feel like repairing ball marks on the greens is acceptable behavior. We left greens better than we found them.

I usually play courses 6,000 yards. So I never considered this as an option. I was delightded to see a course with a great layout. Nice elevation changes challenging sand traps, water and really just a great fun. If you want to practice a shorter game this is a great place to go.

I did not realise this was a short course. I think the Americans call it an 'Executive' course. Not recommended for two reasons :

1) Pace - packed out with weekend golfers, many of whom seemed novice- type players so always going to be slow

2) The majority of holes were challenging but it is too short for a serious golfer

Very good course, some challenging holes on it. Good course to work on your irons. Only issue I have is that this course is literally on top of the next hole.

First time played here. Ideal for short game and "relaxed" golf. Greens were in good condition and some had challenging slopes, which made the approach shot and placement on the greens important in order to score good.
