This course is not putting any money it may have toward upkeep or improvements. The fairways are a mixture of wild field grasses and the greens are very slow due to the long grass. I got the impression that they were struggling to stay open. There weren't even any water coolers on the course on a hot day.

This course plays LONG even for Seniors and Ladies period. It is EXTREMELY challenging due to MANY bunkers and water hazards. Most holes have multiple bunkers in the front and side and some water.

AND the greens are sloped at 133 and fast and tricky. AND there are a number of Forced Carries on some holes. The back nine has beautiful and expensive houses.

This course is NOT for beginners unless you wish to score 150. A good golfer will find it very hard to get 90-100 scoring.

Very pretty and the staff were awesome !

Work is being done to the clubhouse which should improve things. The course shows signs of improvement, it still needs a better stand of grass on some of the greens and fairways, just a few greens had some bad areas, nothing terrible. Edges of the course good be better maintained, but it's the age old story, without more play you don't have the capital to put into the course. Still a very good layout, just needs a little more TLC, but I think it is very playable in its present condition.

Greens in horrible shape. Fairways not mowed in a bit. I will say the challenge was there as far as hazards. The traps needed to be turned. Using golf now. Com<br/> Really made it a bargain to play there but even that I don't believe I will be back.

I enjoyed playing here. They need to get some more grass in the fairway. The greens were okay, but some of them need attention. I'm sure conditions will improve as the weather gets warmer. The staff is very friendly. We started around ll:45 am and played 36 holes. I will come back for another round or two in the future.

Great little course hidden in Bamberg. Recommend making drive to check it out. Staff was real freindly and course well maintained. Fairways were in great shape with good grass. Greens were recently punched , but were in decent shape all but one hole, which they were working on. Not a bad deal for the money.
