Cheap and I can tell why

This maybe the worst course I have ever played. Greens were slower then my carpet at home. The fairways plugged every driver I hit and the sand looked like a cart path. Really disappointed and shocked Crystal Springs puts their name anywhere near this course.

What I Expected

The course is exactly what I expected. The first hole is incredibly tight off the tee. The course has great variety in the par 3s; should really be an expectation since it has 5 of them. Par 4s have reasonable variety. Greens are OK. Course conditions were fine. Be aware, this is the "family" course for the resort, so there is a 18 hole foot golf course that runs down the fairways, not sure not that might mess with tee times. Also, each green has two flagsticks, one for the regular players and one with a larger hole for groups with young kids. For value...9 holes costs $20 plus resort fee, 18 holes is $25 plus resort fee (when I played). The 9 hole fee might be a little over priced, but the price for two loops is a good deal. (objectively, the course is probably 2 or 3 stars, not 4. But at the end of the day, it was never built to be a Sweetens Cove level nine hole course. It serves the design purpose perfectly, so 4 stars)

Mediocire

What a disappointing course. I read all of the reviews prior that made this sound like such a great course but was more than let down. They keep zero maintenance on this course. They say it is 18 holes but it is really 9 holes that you will play twice and will not refund you if you don't play the 9 holes again. They implement 0 rules as they allowed groups of 5+ to play and it more than ruined the pace of the game. I wouldn't recommend this course to my worst enemy.

Good for the price

Not to bad for what you pay but the course is nothing super special. Greens are slow, tee boxes aren't great.

Worst money ever spent

Let me start by saying this course did not even have hole number posts. After finding the 1st hole, it was soon than I had realized the course is a complete waste of money, par 3. DO NOT play here unless you are bringing your kids or a family out. Not for serious play.

Bang for the buck

This is a very well maintained track and a great value for you dollar. The only thing you must remember is that this course is part of a resort and therefore a "family" course. Pace of play can be rather slow at times. With a Golfnow Best Buy it's well worth you time.

Well maintained. Some challenging holes

We enjoyed our round. Course was well maintained. Greens were somewhat fast. Did not enjoy the foot golf customers playing at the same time on the same holes. Some challenging holes. Pace of play was average at best. But overall was a good experience. Would definitely play Minerals again.

Foot Golf

Not only was the course of play very slow, foot golf players enjoyed a round simultaneously to our round. I didn't see one ranger check take a lap all morning. The course was in good condition though. I will never play another round of Golf at Minerals if they continue to have foot golf round playing at the same time

Decent course but wouldn't pay more than 30$

This is the third time playing this course and I had a good time playing, although it was one of the hottest days of the year. A little crowded but not to bad for a Sunday. The thing that really angered me and my buddies off was that they had a wedding there and the event hall has a balcony overlooking the 9th hole which you play twice; only a 9 hole course. There was probably 10-15 people watching us tee off and being extremely loud and obnoxious. I wouldn't usually care but it was a big distraction and made me never want to play here again.
