Great course

Very enjoyable. From teeboxes to greens, everything was in superb shape. Staff met you at your car with a cart and retrieved it when you were sone.

Nice fairways

I’ve been playing this course since it’s been built. I really enjoy the layout and the rural surrounding. The fairways are generous and open. Plenty of water hazards and sand less bunkers. Greens are big and receptive. It floods a lot due it’s location. If you like links golf I suggest you give this course a shot.

Great Golf

Course is one of my favorites. Generous fairways and great layout. Not overly hard. I enjoy playing this course. Greens a bit slow and due to flooding and having only about 4 staff they are ignoring the bunkers for now. Putting their time into the fairways and greens. Go play it.

I’ll play it again

Course is in good shape. Greens are receptive- bumpy but quick. Overall it was in good shape. Lot of rain lately but drainage seems to be working well. If you hit fairways and greens you don’t have to worry about any water left from the rain.
Enjoy

Interesting Course

It’s a good course but the rain we have been getting made a lot more small lakes and made it tough. It’s still a good course and nice people.

Links style golf in the South

This course was a lot of fun. The greens and fairways were in good shape, however the bunkers have not been maintained. I can understand that, given the times as some of the casinos around are no longer operating. The staff was friendly and helpful. This is definitely worth the drive with your buddies to check it out.

I played there 9-3-2020 and loved the layout of this course. Tight fairways and high ruff. Need to hit driver straight in fairway to score well. Greens were good but a little slow to me. I differently will be back to play this hidden gem.

Really Nice

Had a good time and the only thing I didn’t like was that 2 sets of 4 guys would not let us thru and played very slow but the rest was good.

Rain

The course held rain from the night before, making some areas unplayable. Multiple times we had to take free drops from the standing water, because we couldn't reach our balls. The water was that deep!!! And that was just of the fairway, and even in some cases, on the fairway! Good course, just be aware of the forecast days before your round.

Great layout

Great course and enjoyable to play. Has a great layout and the staff are very friendly. They only thing that needed improvement is the sand bunkers. They were unplayable. But it is still an enjoyable course to play.
