I booked through Golfnow.com for a late afternoon tee time. Great start but when the storm rolled through and they asked me to leave the course, they were not interested in letting me finish my round because apparently i was the only person on the course, and it seemed they were more interested in being able to close up early. Given the frequency of afternoon storms in the area, perhaps not using a booking service or not listing late available tee times would help them out with this problem. Was offered a voucher for 9 holes to make up for it but i would have preferred to play the rest of my round after the storm passed.

Commented on 08/15/2017

I have worked at three Pinehurst, North Carolina courses and have been required to ask people to leave a course when a storm rolled in. I regret seeing a course review suffer because in one person's opinion, the course asked you to leave in a storm so they could close early. You received a late play consideration plus a golfnow discounted round. I just left Florida 3 weeks ago, and the storms then dropped copious amounts of rain. The course may have simply been trying to protect you and their course conditions...

Third time playing this course in the past three years and the conditions were probably the best so far.

Played an early morning around so there was no holdups whatsoever.

Course has a moderate driving range, chipping area and practice green.

Personally, I really enjoy the layout, as it meanders through various areas.

While not as spotless as higher end (and more $$ courses), a treat to play.

Greens rolled true and sand bunkers were white, fluffy and all raked.

Starter and shop attendant were both quality individuals.

As mentioned, I enjoy this layout and the improvements that are currently being made to the overall course conditions.

Greens were great...5 of 5. Fairways and rough were ok, good bit of crab grass or something...4 of 5. We were first tee time out, so naturally fast pace.

Biggest issue - there was no beverage cart and the restaurant didn’t open for another hour after we finished the round. Didn’t sell any food or bev in the pro shop either. Bring food / drinks with you if you play out here...

This was our first visit here. The course is beautiful and winds in and out of the area so you see lots of pretty scenery. Course conditions were excellent except for a few minor flaws in a few fairways and the greens tended to be a tad bit bumpy in areas. I found it to be a friendly course with wide fairways. I’m not a big fan of waste bunkers and have never played them in Texas. They were a bit of a challenge so stay away.

Great layout. Challenging holes. Worth the play. Not far from Disney. Kudos to the new team for bringing the course back from the poor conditions created by the prior management.

Good value in that course was in pretty good shape with some interesting pin placements on some holes. Course was a bit lean in staff with golf bag drop off guy doing double duty as starter ?? Could have used a marshal to help with pace of play and golf etiquette (group ahead of us rode golf cart all over the course (par 3s and right up next to greens -argh!)
