Type Semi-Private
Edgewood in Big Bend boasts two different 18-hole courses, the Oaks and the Pines. There is something for everyone no matter what skill level you are since the more challenging Oaks Course is perfectly complemented by the more forgiving Pines Course. The Oaks is routed through a diverse landscape of rolling hills covered with mature forests and lakes. It also winds alongside the Fox River. Water hazards come into play and there are also strategically placed bunkers to contend with. Tremendous emphasis is placed on accuracy on this golf course, but it is not too punishing if your shots are slightly errant. The course stretches to 6,800 yards from the back tees. A cart will be required on this golf course but the flatter, shorter Pines Course is much more walker friendly.

Water

I’ve played this course a few times and have troubles getting water One day played it was 90° no water in the course except for some old pump yourself full of mold water hole in the Ground the Ranger gave me a hard time about a couple waters in a bag told me I couldn’t take them on there OK no problem except for we didn’t see the cart girl for but once per night And water was 2$ for a .25 Bottle you buy at Walmart So I went back this week and played had one big water bottle with me did not see the cart girl till the 9th hole and not at all on the back so if you plan on playing here plan on being dehydrated

First Time Playing

Not worth the cost

$50 for weekend play?!?! Not worth the money at all. Tee boxes as well as some greens are burnt and have not been repaired. Weeds throughout fairways and some tee boxes. Slow play...collared shirts not enforced. Played with two guys who had tee shirts and Jean shorts. Took pics of condition of course...embarrassing. Some holes are cart path only due to location between ponds. No circulation in ponds = mosquitos!!!!!

Will not be back to this course even though they have 36 holes. I’m sure other course is similar. Can not walk Oaks due to distance between greens and certain tees.

The course has very hard greens.

The greens are very fast and very challenging. The fairways need more grass. The mosquitos are very plentiful also.

Excellent Back 9

This course has an excellent back 9 that makes up for the just ok layout on the front 9. I give them a pass for dealing with the river that causes wet, rugged conditions at times on the front 9. If dry, the front 9 can be fun with quite a bit of water to challenge.

That being said, this course's signature is the back 9 that is a design you would get from a $50+ golf course. In addition, the back 9 usually has much better conditions. All around solid golf course that is worth playing for the back 9.

Great value

The course was busy but moved along well. Some areas were cart path only because of recent rains but the course was in good condition.

The course has very hard greens.

Most of the greens are very difficult and there is a lot of water on the course.

Management Needs Attention

Signed up to play 18 on the Pines, 6:35 tee time. Course is under construction so the traditional two separate 18 hole courses are now condensed into a 36 hole facility. Front nine was marred by the fact that the greens mower wasn't cutting the greens in order of play so 4 of the 9 greens were still covered with morning dew. Went to play the next nine and the 2nd tee box already had a group teeing off and a group waiting, pace of play was going to be at least 2.5 hours for that nine. Walked off the course. The staff has been friendly enough in the past but today they dropped the ball. It would seem that they just haven't figured out how to run their golf course as a 36 hole facility. The course's web page does not address the temporary course layout during construction. Stay away until they have their construction sorted out.

Group Outings

If you're going to call Edgewood for a teatime make sure you ask if there's any group outings that day. Apparently it's not their policy to tell you how booked the course is that day . I played the Pines Course on Friday June 23, it took approximately two hours and 40 minutes to complete the front nine. We had to stop three holes into the back nine because of the time. I brought this up to the personnel in the golf shop , there response was "sorry are bad". I think the correct response should've been, we apologize for the inconvenience and here's a rain check to come back and shoot the Pines over.

Disappointed

I have played here maby times before and no problems. But last sunday they decided to change my tee time 1hr before iam scheduled to play. The tee time i booked was for 8:52 am for the oaks course. They changed it to 8:44 on short notice and put me on the pines. I did not want to play this course since i booked for the oaks. Even at check in i said tee time for 852 and then they still failed to tell me n my group my time was changed and playing the totally wrong course. So i get to the first tee on the oaks thinking im playing the course at 852 then find out not playing this course. The starter was very rude about it even after showing i booked for oaks and forced started us off the pines. Probaby not coming back to this place again. I was so mad.

Challenging but nice courses

The Oaks is a nice but challenging layout. Shot management is key and sometimes driver off the tee isn't the best first choice on a few holes. There are a few holes that were soggy due to the recent heavy rain and lakes/river was high. Drainage isn't as optimal but I've played when it's dry and it's fine. The Pines is easier but also offers some challenges as well. I prefer the Pines tho. Good prices. Friendly staff. Greens rolled like a 10

Hit straight on this course

Played the Oaks several times, like the course. Most holes have narrow fairways so straight hitting is critical. A few holes are more forgiving. Really like the island green par 3 on the back 9.
