Play this golf course

If you enjoy fun golf courses, that are in great condition, with friendly staff, then you NEED TO PLAY THIS GOLF COURSE!. Hopefully, Sandy will be the starter and she will give you all of the info on places to eat and what else you can do while you are here! We were lucky enough, thanks to Sandy, to get paired with a couple who had played and knew the course. I was going to play the white tees, around 6000 yds, but they said they normally play the teal tees, and I am glad we did. For any first timers at this course, unless you are a scratch golfer, I would recommend you move up one set of tees from where you would normally play and you will have lots of fun!

Slow slow slow

Staff was very friendly and helpful, course was in good condition but the pace of play on the back nine was painfully slow due to a group of five and Avery slow foursome that the ranger could not get off his cell phone to speed-up or assist others playing as a single or a pair

Great time playing this course

This was a really nice course. Staff was very friendly which is a rarity at the majority of clubs. Great experience, fairways were great along with the greens. Plenty of bunkers and quite a bit of water but not to the point where it is overly frustrating.

Quite a few people but we never had to wait or get people waiting behind us. Would definitely recommend this place.

Great Day for Golf

The course was in very good condition considering the hurricane that came through the week before. Rough was high as it had been too wet to mow but the course had what seemed like an army of staff working on the course. Greens were smooth and true, fairways mostly dry and tight and the rough was a penalty as it should be. A very enjoyable day on the course.

Nice course

Fairways and greens were in good shape. Greens slower than what I am used to. Staff very friendly. Pace of play good but played on a Wednesday in the heat so expected little crowd. Course designed well for its size. Much better than other golf courses in the area. Will play it next trip to the beach.
