The ocean links course has challenging holes nestled in a natural wetlands setting combined with 5 beachfront holes that are both beautiful and breezy!

When I arrived I ended up requesting to play the Marsh course because I've played the ocean course before.... the staff was gracious enough and very friendly and they did allow me to play the Marsh course.

Both courses are great in their own right but I prefer the Marsh Course....great finishing holes.

The scorecard is a tremendous disservice to this course, and the "shortage" of the course is so misstated. This is a fabulous course with so many beautiful views and challenging shots. The blue tees will be a challenge to anyone and the greens were fantastic. I'll be back!

Great course, well maintained. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Only gave the off course amenities 3 stars because there was only 1 cart girl working both courses. We were starving by hole 9, and there was no way to stop at the clubhouse between the front and back 9. The cart girl could not get us food (aside from a bag of chips and some crackers). Also hole 18 was under construction, but they just had us play hole 1 over again. No biggie. I imagine on most days when everything is up to speed, it would have been easy to get food and beverage service on the course. Setting all little things aside, this was a beautiful course, very fun to play, and am looking forward to visiting it again soon.

This course was very impressive, from the layout of each hole to the views that you get along the beach. It was an amazing day of golf and I will gladly return. It was unfortunate though, I was unable to play the 18th hole because there was some work being done around the green, and anyone who doesnt golf much does not want to hit the ball towards 10 people. Other than the 18th the course was one of the best Ive played!

Played on a busy Saturday with lots of sunshine. Even though it was a hot summer day, the breeze really makes it comfortable compared to other course inland. The course staff were very friendly and provided great advice on the course prior to teeing off on No. 1. Ocean views are fantastic and the rest of the course really has a lot of character. This course is another one to put on your bucket list if you haven't played it yet. Played off the back tees that are advertised at 6100 yards but it seems to play much longer. Many challenges holes but if you use course strategy you can manage quite well. Greens were well manicured as well as fairway and rough. Water and restrooms on course were adequate as well. Enjoyed the course and will be back to play again. Traveled about 3 hours from home to get there but definitely do not regret it. Heard their other course resembles TPC Sawgrass Stadium course but never had the opportunity to experience it yet.
