Course conditions from tee box to green is superior. The course design and scenic view from tee box is spectacular. This golf course is very challenging and a must play for all golfers of any skill level.

Condition of course, especially considering recent hurricane damage, was outstanding!

This time of year, course is not crowded, which leads to fast play.

Unmatched setting of old Florida with unspoiled nature.

Offer of reduced green fee to Florida and Georgia residents is not to be missed!!!!

Staff and facility impeccable and exceeds expectations while still remaining unpretentious.

Will make every effort to drive up from SW Florida to play again.

The track is not that long, but it's in great shape, not punishing but with sufficient challenges to keep it fun and interesting. The greens were in great shape, rolled pretty fast and putts held their line pretty well. Scenery was fantastic. Definitely would play again.

The course was in good condition. The greens were fast and well kept.

The things that are issues for me are :

The fairways are very tight with out of bounds markers very close, too close for me.

The second cut of the fairways was high, VERY thick and extremely difficult to hit from.

There are overhanging trees in a lot of places.

I just don't care to play under those conditions. It is not a bad course, just more difficult than it needs to be.

This is a wonderful course that should be played if you love golf and beautiful views. My only issue was the size of the driving range but I've played wonderful old courses who have no range at all.

The secret that must be done (even if it costs you a lost ball) is to make sure to play the 16th from the Gold teeing area. You'll be treated to one of the best views on the entire island.

Don't miss playing this course!

Course was in great shape! Great layout around the marsh filled with oaks. It was very scenic. Not a long course but it was challenging. Value was awesome and well worth the 50 minute drive for me vs playing my local muni. Playing again this weekend!!

My personal opinion is the number of other reviews here that say "tight fairways" are a bit over-exaggerated; certainly not off the tee box unless you are a very long hitter. If they were tight anywhere it was just short of the green where being anywhere off center had you in the sand. Course is in great condition, and for some reason is much less popular than the Ocean Links, which allowed me to reserve a 730 tee time the night before and play a 2.5 hour round and rejoin the family by 1030. Free bag of range balls and friendly staff. Pro shop with wide selection of apparel, balls, shoes, and other accessories.

Narrow course; undulating/sloping greens makes it challenging. Beautiful course; though not many great views. Was surprised that there wasn't more staff helping take bags out of car; cleaning clubs etc. Driving range very small.
