Pace of play

The pace was extremely slow. They had the front 9 aerated so they "PACKED" them in on the back 9.

An Unexpected Pleasure!

This is a very nice course. If you come and expect a typical beach course - lots of dunes and scrub grass - you might be surprised. While there are certainly plenty of holes along the bay that remind you the ocean is near, there are plenty of holes in tall trees with pine straw on the ground. It was a great mixture of surf and piney woods!

Nice little track

Short but challenging, especially on a windy day. Tight fairways, small landing zones requiring accurate tee-shots and approaches.

seems strange they held up starting to complete a foursome and on the second hole we let a single play through. the carts cut off in the parking lot if you travel at full throttle, they should warn you about that we went back to get another cart.

Well worth it

Played this course beginning of November and while there was some residual damage to the fairways from the hurricane it was minimal at most and the greens with one exception were in excellent shape.

The staff was friendly and helpful and at $27.00 per person it was an absolute deal. Will definitely be back the next time I'm in town.

Terrible course

This course was so need of repair that it needs to be shut down for the season. There were several holes that could not be played . Some of the holes that were part of the play the day I went were not much better than the ones under repair . There were no yardage markers on cart paths and most of the fairways were not really marked . The staff was nice . I just wish that I knew thie course conditions when I booked . I would have played another course in the area . I would not play this course again if it was free.

Course Under Repair

They only have 9 holes open so they told me to just play them twice for 18, they even have a makeshift scorecard for the open holes. It was 5 on the front and 4 on the back. Lots of driving between holes on their temporary course. The other holes didn’t look to be opening any time soon. As for the holes that were playable, slightly better than average conditions at best. And there is no putting green and the driving range is 100 yards long. Until this place has 18 holes again, it is not worth your time. Several better choices in the area.

Boycott this Coarse

The coarse only has 9 of its 18 holes open 5 on one side and 4 on the other. I was told in order to play 18 I would have to play the same holes twice doesn't work for me. Was very disappointed and decided to go to another coarse in the area and play. Can not get a refund since it was a Hot Deal offered by Golf Now. I am a local in this area and when this coarse recovers in the late fall it will be great to play but as far as my current experience it was a Negative this coarse in its current state of repair should not even be offered to play on this web site.

Half the course under construction and other half looked like it had never seen a drop of water ... they made us play the same 9 holes twice because that was all that was open

Needs Some Loving

The greens were in good shape. The fairways were bad... very bad. They were bare in a lot of spots. The trees could use trimming and the overall course could use a cleanup.

Mediocre at best.
