Swamp land

Don’t waste your time and money. I played here in a tournament in Oct 18 and it was swampy and cart path only. Fast forward to Feb 19......course conditions are the exact same and the green are all gnarled up. And yes, still cart path only. There must be ZERO drainage on this course. If you like plugged balls and ankle deep mud, this is the place for you

marshall alert

Let me start by saying that T18 is one of my favorite courses to play . As to be expected , I experienced a great round of golf. My only complaint is the opening marshal. I wish I could remember his name , but honestly why would I. I know it was early and realize he has a full day ahead but jees. He is so rude. The fact that I dont even receive eye contact is quite demeaning. I ordinarily let this go but honestly who wants to start their round this way..

These are not the expectations we strive for at Tour 18 and have passed your comments along to our management staff. We hope this doesn't deter you from returning for another round with us.

We ain't getting any younger

Pace of play is my biggest complaint. Groups sent out way to close to each other. The fact that is was cart path only didn't help either. However, not golf etiquette in terms of letting faster players play through. I had to leave after 14 holes and 4+ hours. The course itself was very nice however fairways were saturated from all the rain we've had. Greens were in very good shape. The replica holes done very well. I particularly like how they did Amen corner at Augusta. I will play this course again when things dry out and hopefully they will have better control over the timing of the groups so play can move along at a faster pace.

This course is so much fun and you really feel like you’re playing the originals. Amen Corner is so realistic and probably my favorite. So many nice holes.

Golf course

For the cost you would think the course would be in better shape. The bunkers were terrible. The tee boxes were awful and the staff treated us like we didn’t belong. We had a foursome in front of us that held everything up. The Marshall was never seen. They say you need to wear collar shirts yet the foursome in front of us were wearing jeans and hoodies. Place is a joke. Gus is in better shape. Won’t be coming back

I have played at Tour 18 several times and have always enjoyed it. Today's course condition was a surprise to me......many wet spots and several T boxes were poorly maintained.

CART PATH ONLY

This course needs a major drainage renovation. They have been cart path only for **three months** supposedly. If they have been on automatic cart path only for that long, they should notate this when booking. When I brought that up to staff, they laughed. I would not have played had I known how wet and muddy the course was.

Tom

Fun course that is in good shape. However there needs to be a marshal out there to keep groups moving, at on hole there were four groups on it, took 1/2 hour to play 10th hole waiting on two groups in front of us.

Great Replica

This course has been my favorite for the location and price on Hot Deals. With the weather at 54* and winds of 10-15 mph, it made it very challenging. With the weather challenges and the course itself, I was surprised I played well. Only lost a sleeve due to high winds and Ball carried to unreachable backyards. Nevertheless, it’s one of my favorite courses to play.

REDICULOUSLY WET/SLOPPY CONDITIONS

These, by far, are the Worst wet conditions of any course I’ve ever played. And don’t reply that the recent rains have hampered the course maintenance. I live nearby & the rains have not been bad enough to cause this. This was caused by unnecessary watering from sprinkler system. WHY? We were so covered with mud, it was rediculous!! I could have stayed home, overwatered by backyard, rolled in the mud & saved $114. Also, No drink cart or Marshal was ever seen. It was probably a good thing a Marshal never came by, He would’ve caught an earful. Nicest course to the worst, just because of overwatering & it doesn’t make sense. Good Luck filling t-times & keeping members.

Greens were great/Fairways were not

The course is a lot of fun to play. The replica holes from around the country give you variety of holes that are fun to play. Greens were in excellent condition but, the fairways were incredibly soggy. live in the area and we have not had enough rain to make them this wet. Not sure what has happened on the course but, getting a decent lie in a non muddy part of the fairway was tough to do.

Not so good...

The course design having 18 best holes of US, is excellent but the course in bad shape, probably due to rain....

No ranger to check on the game pace, started 1PM and could play up to 14 hole, before dark.

Good course but.......

This is a really good course. I used golfnow and got a great deal. HOWEVER...there needs to be some way of identifying courses that are cart path only.. I have serious health issues and this course was water logged. It even made the walking AND ballstriking difficult. I had to drive 40 miles and didn't enjoy it. The ball plugged a lot.

Challenging Course

Course was great, I mean who woudn't want to play the most 18 iconic holes in the US ? Course was in fair condition, extremely wet, cart path only upon check in. Other issue were the significant amount of divots in the fairway, greens were fair, Lots of divots on the greens and deer tracks as well making the greens very bumpy and uneven. The hilight was Amen Corner. Will wait for it to dry and then play again, hopefully to better conditions.

Course should have been closed

Front nine was completely water logged with grass in areas actually rotting. The fairways were VERY torn up with cart damage and walking in the grass. They had blamed the conditions on a tournament, but it was clear that the course can’t drain water and/or they are over watering. It was impossible to play the fairways and the course should have been closed until it was dried out and repaired.
