A little disappointed

Disappointed there was no driving range, so no warm up before play. Few on-course markers for distances. All yellow flags so not even basic front-to-back indication by flag color for pin location. Had to play as a single, as they oversold my tee time into a fivesome, but would not allow a fivesome on the course.
Some fairways are tight, and no indication of distances to doglegs, or traps.
Greens and fairways in good shape. No brown grass anywhere. The course is a solid four, but don't go without GPS!

Disappointed

Although this was a pretty course, there was one hole closed for repair, something that management should have noted on their website or told us when we checked in. Also, no one advised us of the daily pin placement number. It took us several holes to figure it out. Some of the pin placements were way too close to the edges of the greens. The tee placements were very inconsistent with the yardage on the card, particularly the location of many of the gold/senior tees which were mostly only a few to several yards in front of the white/men's tees.

Awesome Check-in with Kim

Upon arrival we were greeted at a gated community checkpoint.
The girl at the gate seemed to be put off by our arrival. Immediately we were not impressed! She asked our name and checked a list. She waved us through and I had to ask her which way were we going? She just flicked her head to the right like to just go on.
Once we got to the clubhouse, I went inside to expect more of the same snooty-ness. To my great surprise I was greeted with some true southern hospitality from Kim at the desk. She was soo cheerful and truly excited to have myself and my daughter at their golf course.
I went on to tell her that we were on a golf vacation from Ct. and this was the first round of our trip. She said that we should stop in when we were loaded up and she would get us off a little earlier as rain was expected later that afternoon.
How nice is that? Kim was gracious and actually concerned that we have a great day on the course.
We stopped in and there were a couple very friendly gentlemen conversing in the pro shop. One was a greens keeper and the other was the pro. They offered us some tips before we tee'd off.
The greens were treated but rolled true, the fairways were being cut and the cart paths were paved. However the 14th hole was closed as they were redoing the entire hole.
I like that the course winds through the community and the residents were very friendly. It just goes to show that you can't judge a book by the gatekeeper...Lol

We just came out of winter and I can tell this course is going to be beautiful once everything grows in and the greens heal up from being punched and sanded

Nice layout in need of repair

Overall the course layout is nice. However, the course has sustained a lot of water damage due to rain. One hole (14) was closed for repair. Fairways were still brown but lots of bare ground. All green were airiated thus putting was an adventure. Course should let Golfnow know this on their profile. To me, not worth more than $20 a round at this time.

This course has nice greens

Too much rain recently for the course to be playable. Most Fairways were extremely soggy, and getting to the fairways from the cart path (through the extremely soggy rough) was a challenge. Once you got on the greens it was normal and the greens were in very good shape. A lot of leaves still on the fairways.

Nice clubhouse with food served in a casual and friendly atmosphere. Appreciated restrooms being open on the course during winter play!

Lake of the Woods is a must play

This course has a great layout, good greens and plenty of slope to make it challenging. Booking thru GolfNow with a hot deal is an awesome deal. I really like the course and will continue to visit this facility.

Better hit it straight

This was the first time playing the course. The layout is challenging with tree lined fairways and a few blind tee shots. It has rained the past few days so it was cart path only. Overall the course was is pretty good shape. The greens were in ok shape, very playable but not perfect. I found the greens to be fast and the was plenty of break. There was not a flat green on the course. For the money, hot deal $17 plus fee, it was well worth it. I look forward to going back and playing it again with a little course knowledge.

Overall a good course

Course was wet from the recent rains and therefore played long, but overall in good shape. Some of the tees needed work, but the greens were good. Since it is cut out of a home development, there is a lot of out of bounds though out the course.

I would play again.

Nice course

Had a really enjoyable time On this course. Pace was a little slow due to individuals not allowing folks to play through but I wasn’t in a hurry. I will be back. The staff are working extremely hard to get the course in shape. There were some rough patches but overall I would give the conditions of th course a B+.

Issues

Everytime I have played here this year, there has been issues, you either have to play same nine twice, you play certain holes only, there is ground under repair, they were spraying greens today while I was trying to approach. I have been behind a five some on multiple times just like today and I have been involved in extremely slow play overall everytime I play here
