Been hearing great things about this course for some time now so finally decided to try it out. Very nice staff and tee boxes, fairways & bunkers (found myself in one a bit too often) were in great shape. Greens rolled very true at what I would consider medium speed. Loved the par 5 home hole. Will definitley add this course to my local rotation.

Played it early in the AM. Pricing is fair for last minute tee time. On course service is sparse but okay. No club house but adequate temporary facility. Strange practice facility, too much water and not enough targeting areas. Course plays fairly easy and very visible. Very good greens...large and fairly paced. Overall a very satisfactory experience and recommend it for golfers from beginner to intermediate ability.

Played twice a few days after course /greens had been dressed , but it was in great condition.Greens ran well. Several tees at each hole, so play to suit your own ability. Not too much water -thank goodness ! Got round in under 4 hours -not bad as course was quite busy. Some distance between holes -but on holiday, so no rush.

No real clubhouse -facilities in Pro shop sparse but adequate. Staff all very polite and helpful.

Even though they had top dressed the greens one week earlier you could barely notice. That says a lot about a course that is kept in tip top shape all year long. This course has a variety of holes and tees for each hole. It is challenging from the blue and gold tees but very playable from the red and white tees. There are also " member tees" which is a combination of the blue and white tees. Staff are great and their new Head PGA Pro is a terrific member to the CG team. He is also a TPI certified instructor.

We were told that the course had aerified their greens on Monday (played on Sunday) and we were apprehensive of how the course would play / putt. We were wrong, they rolled fantastic and the layout is fun and challenging. Some drives between holes but so happy we found this time to try this course out. Super friendly staff, very helpful and course is easy to find out by the resort.

Nice rolling layout with huge expansive fairways; of course sand bunkers are also numerous each hole. Big greens in good shape, even after recent topdress. Par3s are good; #18 is best par5. Don't look for some luxurious clubhouse, for a couple of years.

Excellent course with great staff! Walking into the pro shop setting up tee times and getting the right gear with Jim, Todd, and Jared is a wonderful experience of its own. Hess guys are very knowledgeable and get you off to a great start! Ryan is usually working his tail off to get you cart ready prior to teeing off. Also does a heck of a job cleaning up after a wonderful golf session. The course is amazing with all the wildlife you could imagine. It has beautiful views on almost each and every hole. I'm a little biased because I live off of 17! Even if I didn't it's an incredible course that I highly recommend playing even if it's only once!

Thoroughly enjoyed this course. It came highly recommended from several people and it did not disappoint. The course was moderately challenging but everything was right in front of you. Good shots are rewarded and poor shots are manageable within reason. Greens were immaculate and ran flat and true. Only issue was with pace of play. We waited all day and on several holes there were 3 groups playing the same hole. No ranger anywhere in sight to help move groups along. Pace was mostly a factor of poor etiquette from players not understanding how to play efficiently. Definitely will return to play again.

This course was recommended to me as a good value and I found that to be true. The course wss in great shape. The bunkers were well maintained. The practice range was excellent and included in price of round. I play at a private club so I did not know what to expect for pace of play but we played 18 holes in just over 4 hours. Onle negative to course was seeer bunkers on several holes but we never had an issue hitting into them. Other than that the corse was beautiful, especially enjoyed number 9. We played the pro tees so course offered a lot of opportunity to hit driver and found par 3 challenging. Great time with my sons at a great price.

Course in excellent condition.Staff told us 1m gallons of water per week was being used to maintain conditioning. Facilities beyond the course are limited but it is a layout worth considering. My only negative is that a few of the holes felt a bit "samey".

The course condition was better than what I expected unlike many other 4-5 start courses. The fairway was lush and greens are well manicured. The off course facility was minimal, typical of a two year old course without a proper club house. The one thing they must improve immediately was the taste of the drinking water in the cooler along the course. It tasted like repurposed or reclaimed water. Specially when the temperature reaches 40c plus, if you don't have bottled water with you, then you well have to drink this awful tasting stuff.

Put some cheap purified water in the cooler!
