It was 106 and the carts had ice but no water. No water on the course and almost no shade. Definitely should noy play here when it's really hot. We were dependent on the cart going around for refills of water and ice every 30 minutes or so.

Great layout. Course basically in excellent shape. Greens were a little rough due to recent aeration. It was a good value since it was off season. Normally fees much higher

Wonderful layout and have played the course many times over the years. Unfortunately the greens are in terrible shape. Obviously diseased. Lots of bare spots and many areas of the greens have been patched with sod. Greens as a result are super slow and very inconsistent. Pro should alert prospective players.

I've played the course before

Typical resort course - expensive and nice

I was drawn this time by the price - $59.

Easter Sunday meant wide open - we zipp3d around in 4 hrs

Course was in bad shape: greens were effected by some sort of disease - patches of bare

Greens that weren't effected hadn't been mowed and were very slow

Soke bunkers were in bad shape - hard and water damaged.

But, the price was right....

Had 9 family members out for a round of golf. The starter was great as we had a couple of times in between our first groups and he moved our group up so we were all together. Greens were in rough shape for this course, never seen them this bad. The round was a 5 hour round of golf. If I could make a suggestion please change your tee times from every 7 mins to at least 10 mins this would spread out the golfers and hopefully keep the game moving. Average wait on every tee was at least 10 mins some as long as 20 mins and there were times where we had three groups on the tee box.

Course was forgettable, greens were very poor. Given scorecard for a different course... Fairways were drenched for some reason and the loud music from the pool areas is not really what I would choose to listen to when playing a round. Joggers running around the course and random families crossing fairways to get to the pool area. Not worth 79$ when there are much nicer courses in the area
