Played as a single from the Green/Members tees which were back with Gold on several holes. The course is picturesque along the Assawoman Bay estuary and marshes. This was a very stern test of golf with water and/or forced carries or both on each holes. Must bring your best game and for those who are not straight I suggest bringing an extra dozen golf balls as very easy to lose a LOT of balls. I loved the green as putted very true and were perfect speed for good players. I got a GolfNow tee time so not pay full rate so for that price was a great value! I will play course again

Staff recommended we play up one set of tees from what we originally planned and both of us at a 9 handicap we're glad we did as we played the members "green" course and it was plenty challenging. Par 5's were tricky as you really have to get 2nd shots in right place or pay the price. Our only request for improvement would have to have a ranger light a fire under the foursome in front of us who had no one in front of them, held up the whole course and had to have been close to a 5 hour 30 minute round or more as we caught them on the back nine and they made it easy to lose interest as they were that slow. All in all looking forward to playing the course again now that we have seen it once.

This course was amazing. Loads of risk and reward shots tons of hazards that if you hit into you are punished for it. The bunkers some are deep to the point the best play is to just splash out as hard as you can and go from there. The course was beautiful the marshland and the bay was the perfect touch to this course. The staff was very friendly and the pro shop was well stocked as well. I would recommend this course if you're looking for a fun challenging course to play in Delaware.

This course will expose any weaknesses as the amount of trouble is extreme.

Played on soggy day but course drained well. Greens were fast but not too much which is good as they are very undulated. Fairways were in great shape and no standing water.

Was missing to both sides which is not good on this course as trouble is everywhere.

Played in under 4.5 hrs which is good for this course. Waited on groups in front of our foursome but not too bad.

Will definitely play again.

Great course, was in great shape the day we played. Never really waited after the first hole. Course was very challenging and the only thing missing was GPS in the carts. Would have been nice to know things like the distance to carry the water or the strategically placed traps.
