Nice course, good layout, greens in very good condition for the Winter. Par 3s are maybe a little too short. Pace too slow - we were a twosome, following a twosome, and held up by a slow playing foursome who did not allow either twosomes to play through. Inconsiderate - we waited for most shots and no ranger was around to make them let us play through. Otherwise a very nice experience.

Some of the fairways needed seeding with most of them over watered and difficult to play from. Greens though in good shapes. Great course for a Hot Deal n

Hey, this was an excellent course for the money. Front nine was fairly easy, but the back nine was pretty difficult with the bunkers and water. Actually was like two different courses. The greens were a little long (fuzzy) which made putting difficult. Many putts were left short. The bunkers were not difficult to get out unless you were close to the lip, then the sand was so deep that the ball did not travel far enough. Enjoyed it all, and the staff was excellent and friendly.

The bunkers and water on the back 9 definitely offer a different challenge! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your round. See you soon!

Have played this course numerous times in the past few years. Everything was great as usual: Fairways, greens, tee boxes, sand traps and around the greens. Compared to some other courses in the area, it not too difficult for the moderately talented golfer. Will definitely keep this course on our list to play when we vacation here. Bob

We enjoyed this golf course! Every hole has a separate identity, which also offers challenges. I’m a 17 handicap player and I was 18 over par and 16 over par the two times I played the course over the past two weeks.

I wouldn’t mind playing this course daily, for as I already said, plenty of variety on each hole and also challenging.

The layout was pretty good for this course. It’s a nice change of pace from it’s “brother” course there at Sandestin (Raven Golf Club - a pretty tough track).... plays easier and you can relax more. It’s still a good challenge though. Greens were a little slow for my taste. Would definitely recommend though.

Good layout, excellent pace of play. Staff very friendly. Course in good shape, only one hole with any fairway issues. Greens a little slow, but true. Great value for the money - would play it again.
