Greens Condition

The greens were inconsistent sometimes a little slow and sometimes very slow . I think it was caused by the heat they were trying to save some greens by letting the grass grow higher

First Time

This is the first time I have played the course. We had a great time and the pace of play was good. We finished 18 holes in 3:45, but could have been even faster but there were a couple of foursomes ahead of us. Most of the greens were in good shape. There are some fun and interesting holes on the course. The tee shot on 18 is a great opportunity for risk/reward if you take it between the trees. The GPS in the cart is always helpful on a course you don't know. When we are back in the area, we will play this course again.

WHAT. A. JOKE.

Words cannot describe just how much of a dump this place is. $50 to play 18 holes here is the biggest rip off in Emerald Isle. Period. Not only are the greens just pure garbage, rolling maybe a 6. Hairy, dead. Awful...but the fairways haven’t been mowed to a decent golf course length. It hasn’t rained in weeks so don’t tell me it’s weather related. BS. This course is just terrible and in no way will I ever come play this sorry excuse of a course again. Oh. And they charged a 5 year old to ride, but only after they wanted to charge a full player rate because he had a bag with him carrying three clubs. GET REAL. If there could be negative stars, this course would get it. Worst play in EI to waste your money. Bar none.

Great course and great people

My son and I played 18 here while on vacation. Even with lots of rain a couple of days prior, the course held up well. We’ll be back.

Normally in good shape

Played this course several times in the last couple of months and normally happy with conditions and value. However this time arrived at course to find that back 9 holes were closed and greens had just been punched and were covered with so much sand that putting was extremely difficult. Feel like should have been better informed of course conditions when booking the tee time. Will play again in the future.

The course was half closed. Front nine not open

The back nine was very nice. It would have been better if somebody would have told me it was just 9 holes open

Early Season

Conditions can probably be blamed on time of yea. Hopefully things improve with warmer weather. Fairways are dormant and soft (soggy), greens for the most part are in good shape but tees are in very bad shape. Enjoyed the day and GolfNow price was reasonable.

I was impressed with the course conditions for late January. The greens were in very good shape, even the couple they struggle with. Staff is always friendly.
