Really enjoyed the course-my first time playing. Pity is 9 holes and not the full round.

Didn't really matter as I had a good time!

I'd play this course again!

Fantastic practice facilities. Can really refine your game on the range, putting green, and multiple short game areas. The course is a blast. Very easy and no par fives, but it is a ton of fun. My buddies and I play here regularly now. The course was in great shape: very well maintained, true greens. Really can hit a lot of interesting shots if you mix up your strategy and play 9 irons off the tee on some par 4s. The ultimate practice course/facility.

I've been to this course 4-5 occasions. Love it. Not the most challenging course but that is great for beginners like myself. 7, 8, and 9 are tough holes.

The course is always in great shape!

The Marriott Golf Academy is held here so the practice facilities are grand and immaculate.

It's 9 holes but if the course is not crowded they always allow you to continue play. Your significant other can stay inside and enjoy the restaurant and bar, both having a scenic view of the entire practice facility.

If this was an 18 hole course you would certainly pay $40-50/round easily.

Get there early and enjoy yourself.

This is a great little 9 hole course with a layout that challenges every shot. You can play driver on about 4 holes. The typical price of $45 is too steep in my opinion. I played at a discounted rate which made it very worth while.

If you want to practice ,this course has the perfect training area !

Nice little course. I wouldnt pay full price to play this 9 hole course but for the golf now rate I would play it again.

Par 32 and played from back tees to get the most out of the course! Nice layout around the property.

Starter was excellent but rest of staff were a bit standoffish I thought.

First round in six months after injury, nice course to start rehab, not to long so no need to push to hard for length off the tee. Course gradually builds you up for a tough par 3 no.8

We have played here several times before and have never experienced such poor customer service. Staff requires a customer service course. And the golf course has cut their amenities, but charge full price. We had to pay for a bucket of balls but we were instructed to tee off early and no water in the golf carts. So disappointed.

Loved everything about Grande Vista. Be careful when booking online what you choose. Thought I had booked 18 and only booked 9. This is a nine hole course and you play it twice. Also. Is very short. Play from the Green Tees and you have a chance to hit your driver a few times. Overall nice experience. I'll be back.
