I booked on Golf Now around 10:00am - arrived at 11:45 for my 12:04 tee-time. The club had no record of my reservation and were completely booked for the day.

Fortunately we were only a two-some and they paired us with another group.

I will not book with Golf Now ever again.

Course was great - Golf Now - not so much.

The course is fun and in fantastic shape. The green fees are very competitive. My only issue is the pace of play. They let groups larger than 4 play and it makes for unbearable waiting on every hole. The last few times I played there it took 5 hours. I even called to the clubhouse to complain. The marshal should be more active to keep people moving. At times there would be three groups on each hole

If you feel like being talked like an idiot then by all means go to this course. It starts with the angry, overweight and unorganized pro shop attendant to equally rude and angry starter. The #1 handicapped hole is the first hole... Stupid. Oh and there is no range. Are you kidding me? The green surrounds are wet. The place is just the worst. Don't waste your time or money.

This course is always a challenge but it's very fair. Watch your shot placement on the approach. Consider hitting a lesser club than DRIVER on #1 or get WET. Fairways are in great shape and greens are good, but slow because of the heat (prob not cut short because of this hot weather). Good luck.

Legend Oaks will make you think. Sitting in a beautiful setting, almost romantic, but I came to play golf and while it was a nice distraction, I found myself thinking hard on a few of the shots: trees in the middle of the flight path, so do I go over, under layup, will it reach the water, do I fade around it? A lot of gators. Nicest people and to sit outside the club house to just enjoy the view added to the experience. Back to golf; greens were punched and sodded a little over a week ago, so it was a little bit off. One more week and everything will be perfect. Might be going back in a couple weeks when travel brings me back to Charleston. Oh, and the drive to the preserve, breathtaking.

I'm an average golfer, but the course was great. It's great they have 1/2 price tee times available. Watch out of Senior Blitzes, they could force you to speed up your game a bit.

Note, beverage cart services are only available on the weekend so come prepared if you golf during the week.

For winter golf it was great. Greens rolled true, new greens in 2014 are awesome. All other aspects are dormant in February. Cant wait to play here come April. Hope they resolve the cart charging problem that occurred causing a shortage of carts.

Fairways and greens were in great shape for January. Beautiful old live oaks are everywhere and the layout makes the facility feel very private. Heavy rain the night before made for some messy shots but overall the drainage was very good. This Is a very difficult course from the black tees or just challenging from the whites. Make sure you know where the hazards are before teeing off. Very nice clubhouse.

So wet from<br/> Rain. Very long course if it is wet play a shorter tee than normal. I am a<br/> 5 H and shot 83 from the gold. Basically zero roll on nearly all drives. The character of this course is great with huge trees and a fair punt of water.
