Don't miss it

Played the North and west nines. Which is the old west course. 3 hour round, only two of us. Course was in excellent shape. Greens rolled extremely well. Not to fast or slow, they held there lines. Ask your packaging company to include it in your next quote as it is good value.

fun course, friendly helpful staff

Greens are in great shape, fairways are good but tight, tees and traps need help. Friendly very helpful staff.
Interesting course with good variety - 6 par 5s, and

Nice course, holes not linked to SwingU

Course was nice, very well-kept. They are changing the layout of the course (homes to be built) and it does not line up with apps like SwingU and others. It made my GPS distance not work for the course. Other than that really enjoyed it.

Its. a 27 hole course and only saw one beverage cart throughout the round. With as hot as it is and no coolers allowed having more than one beverage cart would make since

Very Nice Surprise

Staff was very friendly. The course was in very good shape. Not quite a 5 but somewhere between 4-5. Most of the tee boxes were in good shape. Fairways were in good shape. The greens were in good shape considering that they had been aerated recently. Should be very nice in a couple more weeks. The West and East run along the intercoastal waterway. The North does not so less hazards. I played West and North. Will definitely play again.

Due to Covid 19, there was no drinking water in the course and the cart girl left early because it wasn’t crowded. No rakes in the bunkers also due to 19.

Greens in very good condition but a bit shaggy as were the collars. Course was very wet due to recent heavy rains.

Beautiful course!

The course was in good condition generally with well-maintained fairways and greens. The layout provided a nice challenge and lots of variety, requiring careful shot placement to avoid hazards and awkward lies. And I always enjoy the views, especially from the holes along the Calabash River and marsh areas.

Great course!

The course was in great shape and was wide open for play. it was very scenic & was secluded from players on other holes. My favorite holes were the ones’ right on the inter coastal waterway. My only complaint was that my Garmin GPS did not register the holes correctly and therefore, I did not get the use of GPS.
I would definitely recommend the course to others and plan to play it again soon!
