This course is in perfect condition. Tee to green you will not find better. I play competitive golf all over and can't say that I have played a better conditioned course. On top of all that the people are super friendly.

I have played this course many time over the last 15 years. It is in the best shape it has ever been in. The staff is friendly (inside and cart staff). This days play was slowed by golfers in front of us and we never saw a marshal. I do think it is priced a little high due to the quality of the course compared to others in the area (Kelly Plantation is much nicer, more frequent beverage cart, better marshaled and they give you free apples and cold towels - all for 25.00 more a round). I play this course frequently as the tee times I want are usually more available compared to the higher end course. All in all good value.

We had a spectacular day to play with sunshine and little or no wind. Interesting and varied layout keeps you on your toes throughout the round...no take-a-break holes. Greens were in mint condition.

Very large greens and some interesting chipping/collection areas. The elevation and size of the greens make club selection paramount.

I'd race back to play it again when in the area

On course bathrooms are very poor. Doors done close. Not clean. Greens are in good shape. Fairways less so. Nice clubhouse . Pace of play a little slow on the front 9. Marshall moved us to another course for the back nine. Much better.

Played this course and the greens were excellent. Had played Seminole and Choctaw last year and this year played Choctaw and Creek. Creek is the least picturesque of the three. Has a couple of holes that are forced layup holes that are not real easy to see from tee box. Condition of course was good overall. If you get a chance you definitely want to play Seminole and Chocktaw.
