I enjoyed my round yesterday on both the Brigantine and Galleon courses. The greens were in great shape.Fairways we're OK and traps were groomed with soft sand. My only complaint was with the tee boxes which had very sparse stubby grass. They were in poor shape.

Nice course with a great deal of water. Alligators all over the course. Many species of birds too. Tees were in poor condition. Fairways and greens were in average shape.

Pace of play definitely resort speed (4.5 to 5 hours)

I will confirm what other reviewers have stated, this is a shot-makers course, the driver doesn't come out of the bag often. I will also agree that the tee boxes as well as the fairways are a little rough, but that being said, we stay the winter in Shipyard on the course, and this club gets an extremely high volume of play. Kudos go out to the extremely friendly staff from your bag drop off all the way through to the Brickyard Pub on the 19th hole!

now i understand its early in the season but this course is in pretty bad shape other than the greens. not worth $65.

the brigantine 9 is target golf with only 1-2 holes to break out the driver if you hit it 240 or more off the tee. i personally dont like teeing off with a 4 iron of 3 wood on every par 4/5. galleon was a little better and more driver friendly. this course had way too many golfers on at one time. 3 hours to play front 9.

The greens were in immaculate condition however the tee boxes were in poor shape and the fairways only fair. Many palm trees had been trimmed but the clippings were left lying on the course and negatively affected the play of our group several times.

First and most important to me the greens were in very good condition and reasonably quick. The tee boxes were in somewhat poor condition but understandable given the hurricane. The bad is by teeing off every 8 minutes they had too many golfers on the course. The round took 4:45 and we waited on every tee box.

Greens in excellent condition but the fairways and tee boxes were very poor. Tee boxes could be better if they would move the tees like most courses do. Fairways in need of some TLC. Staff were were very friendly and the clubhouse has a nice patio to enjoy a beer after your round

There are many courses close by that are in much better shape. Even considering the good greens this course was in the worst condition of the 7 courses I have played on the island since February 1.

It's a wreck for the $$$. Tee's, fairways and other grass's need tons of work. I am sure management will blame it on hurriacane Matthew back in October 2016. The only thing going for this course are the GREENS. We started as a twosome sandwiched in between 4 some's. all day long. At the turn the starter sent out even more groups for nine holes on the open (thrid nine). Pace of play was wait wait wait all day long.
