This is exactly what I need on a regular basis - a place that's close to my house, rarely busy and a short little layout that is perfect for my golf-crazed 11-year-old son.

Didn't know what to expect when I first went there (it's in the middle of a 55-over community) but I was pleasantly surprised. The people are friendly and, more importantly, the greens were decent, which is all I need to make me happy. I'll be back...a lot.

I played here about a year ago when they were upgrading some holes, I must say it turned out really well, the greens are very playable the fairways are a bit dry , but well kept, I must say I have seen worse courses than this for the type of weather we are having, but Fairways is definately a course I would recommend for a fun day out, good golf, I will surly be back soon, oh did I mention I played my best game ever. broke my score of 77, I shot 73 from the grren tees. Awesome. see you soon.

Been here along time but never played it for whatever reason. This was a very nice surprise only because of where it's located. I have played it several times since and have brought several friends they all think it's a great course for the price. Course is very good shape we love the layout, tight but not very manageable. Only non liked thing I could say is the members/residents we encountered were pretty rude,it's that entitlement thinking. They didn't think they had to let 2somes go by a 4some or 5some which they don't have to but etiquette is a good thing and they just come from wherever on their fancy carts and start playing had them jump out in front a couple of times.. This will not stop us from playing there really like the course. Keep up the good work.

Also played the week before. I hadn't been back here for over a year due to the poor conditions, but how things have changed. Only a couple of fairways that need some more attention, but the tee boxes and greens are thousands times better. Yes, the greens are a little slow (okay a lot slow), but I figure they are keeping them longer through the heat of summer to make sure they are really established, then this winter will trim them down and they will be fast, slick little mothers. I appreciate the backfill on #10 next to the lake, and the tree removal throughout the course. Have already booked for next week.

For the price you pay and the conditions. You can't beat it. Fairly easy track. I stopped playing here for a while when they shut down part of the course for new irrigation. Now that irrigation system is paying off. I never thought grass would grow on hole #6 and it's now coming along. The conditions are way way better than Eastwood and a better value than stoneybrook. My only gripe are the slow putting greens. The tee boxes are in great shape, fairways look great, and it's never really busy out there. I took my employees from the bank out for a round and we had a blast. Staff and Manager Christian is mad cool too. Fairways today vs last year has shown tremendous improvement

I've played every course in the area, Eastwood, Wedgefield, Stoneybrook, Twin Rivers, etc. and none compare to Fairways. The round is insanely cheap, I played on a senior day (Thursday) for just $18 but I also saw Tuesday was a senior day and their student rates were only $15. For that price I wasn't expecting much but boy did I get a lot for that price. The staff was extremely pleasant and outgoing and genuinely wanted to see me have a good time while there, the course conditions were great. Tee boxes and greens were fantastic, a few fairways still need some TLC but the manager there was explaining how they recently put in a new irrigation system and what the plans are for the future of the course. I had a hotdog combo for $5 which was one of the best hot dogs I've ever eaten and it included chips and a fountain drink, and also $12 six-packs of beer, I thought those prices were long gone on a golf course. I've never had a bad experience here and every time I play somewhere else it just reminds me of how much better it is at Fairways. Give it a shot guys, you'll love it!

Very fair if you can keep your shots in the fairway -- lots of water - sand was well maintained - overall a good day at the course.

This is your typical park layout. Winding it's way through the mobile home community the course has water in the right places . Still spring course conditions, but nice enough still.

This is an 18 hole golf course. They were just putting in a new irrigation system but it was still playable. It was more difficult than I expected. Much water and narrow fairways. The greens were in good shape. The people at the pro shop were very friendly. It appeared that there was much work being done for this course to upgrade it. Great course for the price.

I played as a single. There was a 5-some in front of me so I hit a few balls of each tee. The 5-some played well so they played at a great pace. The greens are being worked on the back 9 so you had to play the front 9 twice for 18 holes. I played 9 holes and when I went to play the 1st hole again. There were 2 5-somes and a 4-some ahead of me. I didn't play the 9 again. The manager there saw I was leaving early because of the congestion and gave me 2 free rounds of golf because he wanted me to come back. Very classy and gracious by him (sorry I didn't catch his name). Even without the free rounds I would come back. It is a nice course to play.

We were advised when we arrived that the back nine were closed for sprinkler work. We wish we would have known. GolfNow didn't advise either. The front nine was very wet with a lot of soggy muddy areas on the fairways. I understand the rain around here but it has very poor drainage. Even when you had good shots you could still be in muddy areas. The staff are very nice and they have a great hotdog...that saved the day!
