The staff were all excellent. The course was in excellent condition. We did wait a lot on course, but that is typical. I am not a fan of Pete Dye courses, but this is a good one. I recommend this course.

Nice course layout and condition. Pace of play was ridiculously slow. My tee time was delayed because they had too many players and not enough golf carts. They were waiting for players to finish so to turn in their carts before they could send additional players out. Although I didn't get to the first tee until after my tee time because of this, I needn't have rushed because the course was so backed up we did not tee off for a while anyway. I would think a higher end course would not overbook, and would have enough golf carts for peak course booking times.

This was our first time playing this course and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a mid afternoon tea time and therefore there was basically no one else on the course around us. I booked our teatime through golf now.com and only paid for nine holes but ended up playing 18 holes. Staff were extremely friendly and it’s located on a beautiful property. Would play here again.

Course was beautiful, pro shop staff was great. Older cart attendant was abrupt and rude. There was no offer of assistance to help with our golf bags. We had to carry our bags from cart drop area to our vehicle. He rudely commented that he needed our carts right now for other players. I understand he had a job to do but he ruined the overall experience for us.

Such a shame this was our last day of a two week vacation. We chose this course as it is fairly close to the airport.

Our first question upon check in was what the expected pace of play was. The fellow in the pro shop said four hours.

There were two groups of young guys having a good time two groups in front of us but unfortunately that made for a lousy time for the rest of the golfers behind them. Our tee time was 13 minutes later than stated and no starter was there to get the fellows in front pointed in the right direction. Looking back from the second hole green, there were four groups behind us and one waiting on the par 3 hole #3. It took 1 hour 3 minutes to play two holes. A course marshal finally did appear at the end of #4, but things didn’t improve for about two more holes. Needless to say, we didn’t finish our 18 holes of golf as we had a plane to catch.

Sorry, but I just can’t recommend this golf course to anyone.

We have heard amazing things about this course, We had made a tee time for 2:30. We left the hotel at 12, the parking lot was such a disaster we didn’t hit the range until 1:30. The course was 5 min. away. We then did not reach the first tee until 3:45, an hour and 15 min after our tee time. They couldn’t get anyone out due to carts? We then played a slow round and had to leave 6 holes early to catch our flight.

CARTS?

Along way to fly to wait to only play 12 holes of golf.

This is a pretty good track if you like Pete dye courses He seems to build his courses for the best players and this one will be really tough if you’re in middle or high handicapper. If you miss the green you’ll be in bunkers way over your head. I played with high handicappers and many times they took 2 to 3 shots to try and get out of the bunker before they just threw it out. At the Westin does a good job of maintaining it but the design is a little extreme for average golfers
