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.
