First, there was a great deal on Golfnow. It was 11:57 and first tee time after a tournament made turn. They were running an hour behind and starter graciously asked and strongly suggested we get out early to avoid getting stuck behind group. It was admirable the way they looked out for us. I got paired with an avid golfing couple from St. Aug, Don and Miss Vickie, that were a joy to play with.

Fairways and valleys were soft and soggy. We had lots of plugged and muddy balls. It would have been good to get an advisory from starter or golf shop. Otherwise great experience again st WGV.

This course lives up to its hype. It has all that look for in a course Fast greens, wide fairways that provide a good challenge from both tee shots and approach shots. The course was in great shape when I played and pace of play was kept up throughout the round. Staff was friendly, and very reasonable with situations presented. All in all a great course to play.

As expected the course was in great shape. We caught a great deal online. Tee boxes, fairways, rough, and greens were all in top shape. Only complaint of the day was having two balls pancake and sink down into green side bunkers from iron shots out of the fairway (I know, why would I hit it in there in the first place). Pace of play was outstanding and the course offers a great mix of layouts throughout the 18. Good views on 9 and 18 coming up to the World Golf Hall of Fame.

This is a great course. It is well maintained and challenging. Friendly, helpful staff. However, the three times that I have played here the pace of play was an issue. A lot of waiting behind slower groups. I think the rangers could be a little more forceful in getting groups to speed up. I will be returning because I do enjoy the course layout.

The course was in great shape for early March although the day was quite windy. The problem was that the course had a shot gun start golf tournament in the morning. Some were still finishing the tournament as we played which resulted in slow play. The restaurant was closed which meant we could not get drinks for our outing prior to playing. The only saving grace was that the cart lady was available and provided excellent on course service. My wife and I enjoy playing at the Slammer and Squire. We also enjoy eating lunch in their restaurant prior to play. But had I known that they were hosting a shot gun start tournament that morning I would have played elsewhere to avoid any interference. I truly enjoy playing this course and will return. But it would have been nice to know about the tournament ahead of time for better planning purposes.
