We played nine holes only, back nine. Course was ok, seemed dry though. The tenth green was a bit confusing from a distance with a red flag. Seemed like a temporary green but it would have been nice to know that. Had the book with course layout so found our way around ok. It is much easier though when there are signs indicating way to next tee. The day was perfect for golf and we did enjoy it.

A recent water main ruptured and flooded the club house. the staff was set up in a temporary shop. they were very friendly and informative. The weather was a bit windy but that's they way it is at the beach. The greens were experiencing early Spring growth and were a bit bumpy. Otherwise, it was a good day and a good round of golf. Yes, I would play this course again.

The photos are nothing like the real thing. There is no access to the club house and they have no running water. The greens are mossy. The ONLYpositive thing about this course is the staff. They are very friendly and seem to be trying to make the best of a bad situation.

We paid $25 for a Sunday afternoon play from a Hot Deal. The Clubhouse was still closed from a January 3rd pipe burst and flooding. Greens were very bumpy but the fairways were is pretty good shape. Pace of play was great until were ran into a 5-6 player group in front of us. WHY!!!!!

The clubhouse it being torn down so no rest rooms or snacks. There are a couple port a potties available but we were told there were restrooms after the number three green (but then they sent us off the back). The restrooms my wife eventually found weren't completely operational and there was limited paper products. My wife was definitely not happy. Will eventually get rebuilt but a problem if your playing with someone that expects some level of convenience.

The greens were in poor shape with tufts of grass growing that made the ball bounce. The sand traps were inconsistent with some having soft sand and others no sand at all.

Finally, I paid $25 plus taxes and fees through GolfNow that added up to around $35. The people we played with paid $29 as the standard rate.
