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.

Overall: Excellent course for the value.

Course Play: Some interesting layouts for par 5s. Plenty of blind tee shots, but for the most part you can grip it and rip it off the tee.

Course Condition: Greens rolled nicely and were in good shape except for a few bald spots here and there. It is clear that they use their water for greens and near the greens first, then fairways, and if there's a couple of drops left, the tee boxes get a sprinkle. Some tee boxes were basically a layer of dirt with harder dirt underneath that. If they did one thing better, it would be water the fairways and tee boxes more - it's likely a cost thing that is keeping them from doing it.

Staff: Everyone we dealt with was great, from the pro shop to the starter to the bartender.

Wow, this may be the best kept secret south of Atlanta. For the money, this course is in OUTSTANDING shape. The tee boxes are okay, but the fairways (minus #18) are in really good shape. In my experience, many of the less expensive golf courses don't put enough water on their fairways - not a problem with this course. The greens were receptive and rolled true.

The layout is so "golfer-friendly". Several holes offer unique challenges - but are not super crazy hard (holes 1, 9, 10, and 17 come to mind). Playing again this week - this time bringing my 2 boys. Keep up the good work!

Always a great time and you can't beat the hot deals here. The only thing they have to work on is the tee boxes. If you can find some grass on them they are like conceret. Several time I had to move back five or six feet to even come close to being able to put a tee in the ground. But that won't keep me from returning. Great times.

I was expecting the course to be in rough shape based on playing there a couple of years ago. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it played. The greens were in good shape save 2 or 3 that needed attention. The fairways were in decent shape. The tee boxes need work. Otherwise, I enjoyed the found and will be back. They also have a full service bar and restaurant. Get the grouper sandwich.

The greens were in good shape, however the tee boxes were like rock, and not always positioned the best. A little confusing getting around the first time, going through neighborhoods and winding cart paths crossing over each other. The back nine added more confusion on where to play some tee shots, so that took away a little bit, however to be expected the first time playing.
