Had a 2pm teatime. The course was so backed up I did not tee off until 2:30. I only got to play 13 holes because it was dark. Marshall joked about how packed it was and couldn't care less about making players keep pace. Although it's not completely his fault because the pro shop just stacked the course. This course is more concerned about making money than giving you a great golf experience. 13 holes and 4 1/2 hours! Completely unacceptable! As a local I probably won't be back.

Tee off time was 1:15hrs and front nine was 2hrs 45 mins, they really have to get the Marshalls working and speeding up the play, there was a 3 some ahead of us taking a lot of time and we were a foursome. Very hard to maintain any type of rhythm when waiting on every hole. Played 18th hole in the dark and anyone behind us came in due to slow play. Recommended play 4hrs 10 mins, not on this day!

We played five courses local to Panama City Beach and this was the most unimpressive. The layout is pretty boring with few hazards the main defence being greens guarded by heavy bunkering. Pace of play was good but only because we were let through by a very slow four ball early on. There was lots of shouting and whooping from some other groups which was really irritating. To be fair, our view might have been more positive if the weather had been a bit warmer and the sun was shining! For the money there are better courses in the area.

No walking allowed, even though it's not a long course or in a residential development. The staff I encountered was without personality. Irons only on the range. I only return as a last resort.

Haven't played here in a few years, got a good deal on GN, decided to give it a go. Course in very good condition for December. Good pace of play, except we were asked to speed up even though we were on the heels of the group ahead, perhaps the twosome behind us was antsy due to the late afternoon time they had on a short winter day. Could not find a restroom on the course. Greens in excellent condition. Course played very long into a north wind. Not a par three under about 160 yards. Not a good course for the ladies, and even a bit tough for a senior male like me. One par three has a huge pine tree blocking the drive. Pins were in very tough positions this day on many holes. Very nice check-in staff, made us feel welcome. Not too much rough or water hazards. Big bunkers but well sanded and in good shape. At this price a very good value, and I plan to play there again. Thanks.

This is a fabulous course - challenging layout, regardless of tee played; beautiful scenery even though w/o Gulf views; excellent course conditions; and, the staff are very helpful. However, be sure to get a tee time away from when the local "Gun Slingers" are playing their rounds - so horribly slowwwwww play and you cannot get through them. If you can't obtain tee times, go elsewhere.
