Brandywine Bay

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.

Poor first experience

Course was good. Only had front 9 available. Had to play twice. No concessions. Maybe just a bad day. Carts are great. I will try again in near future

Sorry you only were able to play the front 9. If it was on a Tuesday or Sunday we have a 9 hole scramble tournament in the afternoon and typically close off 9 of the holes for a shotgun start. We can't find a way for golfnow to indicate this on our electronic booking sheet.
Please give a call to the Proshop prior to making your tee time and we should be able to get things sorted out.
Thanks for playing and hope to see you again soon.

Course was great!

The course did everything they could to fulfill our request. However, golf now let us down by not mentioning the course was scheduled to be aerated. We had to play only 9 holes! We were on Vaction and expected a great day of golf but was bummed out!

Good Layout

Solid layout excluding the first 2 par 5s on the back 9. Course needed to be mowed, but I still enjoyed it. Will definitely play again next time I’m visiting Atlantic Beach.

terrible scheduling

course was not in bad shape, we prepaid for 18. when we arrived they told us we would have to play the back 9 twice because they were having a junior tournament that was going off on the front. when we finished 9 holes, we went to continue onto #10 and there were multiple groups of juniors that were walking. went to the clubhouse to ask them and was told "sorry, we had a lot of kids. they should be pretty fast but if not oh well" 10 year olds walking were in fact not fast at all. ended up playing one more hole and leaving. terrible scheduling and no regard for paying customers. would not recommend going and certainly will never go back.

Decent golf course. Getting better

Not a bad track. Lots of doglegs and water. Mostly 3 wood and hybrid of the tee. GPS in carts is cool. Greens slow but true. Go play on a hot deal.

Overall pretty nice.

Nice course , not very long yardage wise. The greens were pretty slow , it took all day to get used to. . Played at noon so pace of play was not an issue. I would recommend for people in the area.

Brandywine Bay

The greens were in fair shape as they appeared to have been recently aerated. The course layout was challenging. The cart path is paved in most areas but is gravel in one section and is a rough ride. The video hole overview in the carts was nice. Good value for price.

Brandywine Bay much improved

This was the first time I’ve played this course in several years.

In the past I felt the course is very narrow. The staff told me that they had to take out about 300 trees following hurricane Florence. This made the course feel more open.

They also had reversed the nine‘s, which results in starting off on an easy par five instead of a difficult part four.

Also the golf carts appeared to be new. And the carts contained a nice GPS system.
