Not a Bad Deal

The course did not weed because it was not sure if it was going to open. The course was ok, but greens were pretty decent. They are working on getting it back on shape. Staff was great, pace of play was great and for less than 35 dollars, this is not a bad deal at all. As some have commented, the paths are not great.

Very poor fairways and rough

There was more crabgrass than Bermuda on some of the fairways. Some of the greens looked rough also.. No doubt the worse course I have ever played for conditions.

Not in the best of shape

First let me start by saying the staff was very friendly & helpful. But the course itself was in poor condition. The tee boxes were mostly sand & dirt, fairways were very thin with weeds growing in them. Looks like they have not been cut in a week or so. The greens putted true but were pretty burnt up. Have played this course about 5 times over the past 3 years and was definitely not up to par. But for $32 to play on a Sunday afternoon was ok. I will try it again in the late summer or early fall to see if any improvements have been made. Course layout is decent and fair to the average golfer.

If your Limited on time Try elsewhere

The conditions were just plain unacceptable. No grass on any of the tee boxes, really fuzzy fairways that were so saturated your ball would plug and be covered in mud anytime you hit them. All around the course needs a lot of work and if your on vacation you would want to spend one of your few rounds elsewhere. The staff was extremely professional and friendly though just unfortunate the course was in such bad shape.

Won't be back soon

The 2 stars are for course design and pace of play only. Course conditions were horrible on this once great course. Even allowing for the massive rainfall here in the last 2 weeks the course is in terrible shape. No grass on tee boxes: huge muddy bare spots all over the place greens with compressed bumpy surfaces and dead spots. I won't complain any more because I played for free using my Passport monthly freebie.

It was cart path only today. But the course was so wet that was the only way to go. Pace of play was excellent and I would play there again. Some tee boxes are a little sparse and some of the greens need work..

Never Again even for free

Booked for a practice round Mar. 2. The course was over saturated due to all the rain. So Cart Paths only. But this course should have been closed for being unplayable. Bunkers were lakes, fairways were swamps. They’re sending lots of groups out (because it’s cheap) and to take the money.
Next, this course should be closed. Worst condition course I’ve played in 20 + years. Bulldozed for houses or something. Fairway are full of weeds, the greens are yellow. Cart paths are breaking apart. I walked off after a few holes. I actually drop to another course close by to make sure I wasn’t seeing the norm for this time of year. Other course in Calabash was in excellent condition. Give it up and close, please.
