I have always looked for a chance to play Lost Marsh. Nephews have almost adopted this course as their Go To Course. Now I know why. The course is beautiful, layout great and conditions were out of this world. Only drawback was the pace on the back nine which caused my threesome to jump past 12 and get away from them. Rangers could have assisted but I did not see any of them on the back nine. Even with this, I would have to say that Lost Marsh is a Diamond in the Rough.

The clubhouse crew was fantastic. Stuck around for a few cocktails on the balcony and service was right on the money.

Final verdict - To quote Arnold, "I'll be back"

Unbelievable hot deal 18 w/cart for $12. Regular green fees are a little steep but it is an excellent condition, well designed course and worth it. It rained /drizzled off & on during whole round but I expected some. Supposed to be paired w/ a threesome but the starter said I could head out alone if I wanted. Played as a single and played through several foursomes as i caught them, round only took 2:45 hrs

This review is based only on the first 5 holes because after it took 2 hours 15 minutes to play them i quit. There was a women's high school tourney that for some reason did not get to start at their shotgun start at it original time because the course allowed golfers out before so they all had to tee off on 1 so it through the entire tee sheet off. But based on what i did get to play the first 5 opening holes are challenging, the first 4 holes have water on both sides so be very accurate off the tee. Hole 2 is a uphill par 3 157yd hole but with the wind it played 180 so make sure you club up and hit it straight because its all water right and short! #3 is water all along the left side on this dogleg left hole. #4 is a par 5 that breaks into 3 separate fairways so a 3 wood 260 yd drive then a 150 layup to the next fairway is needed in order to get a decent green shot for your 3rd. #5 is a par 4 dogleg left with a tee shot over water, again a 260yd drive is needed so it leaves a decent short iron into a elevated 2 tiered green that slopes severely downhill from front back. The greens were in great shape and fast. I do look forward to getting back here and playing a full 18!

I tee'd off at 9 am Sunday. The weather was perfect, the course was perfect. The greens are very receptive. They are a little slow for what I'm used to. I will definitely be back now that I understand where some of the blind shots need to land.

Great entertaining track. Bring your shot making skill and check your ego as the course will punish errant tee shots and often requires a modest layup even on par fives. Greens were in great shape and rolled true. Good golf will score well and bad golf will rack up a large number! Good track and a good value.

This is a great course. I would recommend it to all golfers. Bring extra balls as there is a lot of water. Lightning fast greens. It was a very hot day and not much shade. There were water jugs about every fourth or fifth hole. The beverage cart came around several times. And there is a nice snack shack in the middle of the course
