Slow greens/afternoon rates
Like all the state park courses I have played, the greens are always extremely slow. Also, the competition reduces their afternoon rates significantly but you never seem to.
Good southern golfing.
The day I golfed this course happened to be the last day they had a relationship with Golfnow. Great course because it doesn't have houses lining the fairways and the fairways are forgiving. Also, it's int the area of the best seafood restaurants I've found anywhere in the country.
Good course for the money. Booked with Golf Now. Your not playing at Augusta National. Just have fun and help out the state park.
All in all
All in all, the course is an economical event. While it is a public course, it is easy, and the staff are very friendly. I’ve played it twice and will return. The cart paths need lots of work. They provided sand for divits but no scoops. The course needs more TLC but the price for the round was worth it.
Slow greens, sparse fairways, fun, walkable, little high price for an average course.
Rangers needed on the course
Very few people playing and pace was good until encountering a 4some on hole 11. Refused to let our 2some play through. Ended up going around the 4some and resumed play with all holes in front of us open. Noted three groups jammed up behind this 4some a few holes later. When courtesy fails a ranger is needed.
The course is a public course so does not get the attention that the more expensive private courses receive. Cart paths are a bit of a mess. Fairways are OK. Greens are OK. Better than some of the private courses in the area.
While a bit of wear and tear, it is a public course. Overall, it was money well spent.
had a great time. greens a little bit slow, but great people to play with, and couse layout made it a great time.
