Greens are in fantastic shape. Fairways and tee boxes could use some work, but if I had to choose, keep spending the money on keeping the greens nice. They were a little slow, but they rolled true. Enjoyed the day. Pace of play on Masters Sunday was slow, but they told us it would be that way at the start.

Short and sweet....tee boxes and fairways have a long way to go at this point. It was terribly matted out there. Greens were "ok" and staff (inside and out) were great. Overall, I was disappointed as this is one of my favorite places to visit.

Good layout. Fairways and tees grass conditions were very thin, no grass behind some greens. OB a little close on many holes and not well identified by markers. Could hit a ball an inch right or left of cartpath near fairway and be OB. Didn't know it until you got to the ball.

The layout is nice, on and around the greens are inconsistent. Same thing with the bunkers very few fluffy the rest hard dirt. Half of the tee boxes you have to work a little bit to get your tee in the ground. The course needs close to a lot more maintenance and repairs to get to that 4 to 5 star rating. Honestly, total course rating: 2.5 the greens 2.9 I Love the way critical areas of the course is roped off to protect from driving carts on those areas. The driving range doesn't allow hitting driver.

The back nine is really great on this course. Tight from the tee because of the trees but visually stunning. Greens small and undulating. All the makings of a top course... Except for all the 'brown'. This place is DRIED OUT. Very few patches of grass in the fairways. Only 2 or 3 greens were decent. Why don't they water this place? Could be a solid four star course if it got some water.

Played here on a GolfNow Hotdeal. Made it an absolute steal. Driving range is off grass which is always good. Good and fun design especially the back nine. Only issue when playing here for the first time is how to avoid the OOB (gardens belonging to the housing next to the holes) which is right next to some cart paths. Overall upkeep was average, which was mainly caused by a lack of water on some fairways, a number of teeboxes (17 was like concrete) and one or two greens. Would really like to come back in spring to see this course when it is in good condition.

Oh, and the 19th hole was a blast!

I have played this course several times. I love the course layout and the moderately challenging layout. Staff is always friendly and accomodating.

I always hit a basket of balls and warm up on the putting green before playing. Some of the greens have suffered slightly due to the. Heat this summer but, overall, they are in good shape.

If you want a good place to play and are close to the course I would recommend you give it a try.

I love this course because it plays very fair and most holes are "what you see is what you get". The greens have been watered but most still have some dead spots. They don't appear to water the fairways so they are very dry but not completely gone. The course is still playable but they need rain.

Course has a lot of blind tee shots and the out of bounds markers are on the cart path next to the homes. You can be on the other side f the cart path and be out of bounds with only a 20 feet chip to the green. This is not golf and I understand homes on the golf course. Stay in the fairway and get reward for good shots. bad shots will punish your scorecard. Keep your Driver in your bag for the last five holes.
