I play this course almost weekly and can say it's one of the best maintained courses around this area. I teed off early

and never slowed down or had to wait on anyone. Great resort to stay for the weekend. Bring the wife and pamper her with a massage while you play golf and everyone's happy!

Pay attention to your ball's landing position especially in the first cut of rough... can be hard to find until you are right on top of it!

We had a 9:10 tee off and was able to tee off a little early. Problem is it should have been about 15 mins early because we got stuck behind 2 foursome that never bothered to allow us to play through. By no means was this the courses fault it was just a nuisance for us. We were waiting to him every shot we took. The only other suggestion would be to keep a close eye on your ball if it gets in the 2nd cut because it can be very difficult to find even it you think you know where it landed or stopped. As usual I will probably be there playing again this week sometime. Very friendly staff!!!!

You can always expect the course to be in excellent shape and the greens to be perfect. I personally don't think you can find a better place to play in the area for the value and course conditions. We be there again Friday provided Hurricane Irma doesn't keep us off the course.

Course was in really good condition. Fairways and greens were great. Roughs were a little high for me but grounds crew were mowing and blowing grass. Took a little time to find balls if they went in first cut. Otherwise had a great time.

The course was beautiful, and a pleasure to play. It was in good shape, but not as nice as expected with some wet areas. The only issue was the food and beverage service on the course was poor. There was no food at the halfway house, and limited choices on the seldom seen beverage cart. Other than that it was a wonderful round.

Placing your tee shot on the correct side of the fairway goes a long way on this course. Many dog legs and if you're not in the correct position, some tree lines will come into play. Found the greens very easy to read, made many 1 putts to save par or bogey. Quite a few elevation changes up and down hill. A beautiful, scenic course. Was a bit slow (5 hours) on weekend I played, may be faster pace during the week. But had a great time, fun course to play.
