Such a Shame

Used to play Tatum when it 1st open back in the 90’s. It was such a well kept pleasant track. Returned this week and was so disappointed to see the neglect. The course was overrun with crab grass, original tee signs faded and broken, empty unused water bins, neglected club house. It was 90+ degree with no drinking water available when the pro shop unexpectedly closed mid-round, around noon. The restaurant never opened on a holiday. No vending machines, water fountains, nothing.

Disappointed

The tee boxes were in terrible shape. The greens were in decent shape, still recovering from being aerated. Alot of dead grass laying around in the fairays. Many fairways had large areas with no grass. The bunkers were very hard with no loose sand in them.

Decent Fairways Greens Punched

This is a local course near me, havent played it in a few years. The fairways and roughs were in pretty decent shape, however they had just punched greens and were sanded. Overall the rate and ability to even be able to play since most courses dont have tee times till the afternoon was a bonus to me. Plus we used to come here for lunch or breakfast as well, because the food was very good and cheap. They said resturant wouldn't be opened until september.

Hot but fun

Played right before they closed at noon. Went out as a twosome and played the round in 2.5 hours. Like the layout, it needs some rain there to green up some areas.

Probably the worst course ever

I play about 50 to 75 rounds a year - this is the worst course I think I have ever played
Pace was ok after the 3 some in front of us let us play through- they took 25 minutes to play one hole
And the clubhouse closed at noon so no drinks ?!? We teed off at 11
You name it this place was awful —bad fairways —greens with weeds and shaggy - the one thing that this course does have is my number 1 rating for worst course I have ever played !
Congratulations

Surprised and disappointed

We played this course 2 years ago. The course conditions, then, were OK. We booked today’s round based on our past OK experience. We were surprised at the deterioration in the course. The tee boxes were not good, and most of the greens had problems. The fairways were also not good. We don’t plan on returning this year and not until reviews indicate that the course conditions have improved.

Another Covid Death

Two years ago this course was pretty good. Today it reopened due to the virus. The course was closed for about 2 months. Since that time it’s clear no one worked on the course. The greens are burnt and dry, the fairway was nonexistent and the rough was mowed but by a blind man. I’ll not return again until I hear that the condition has improved. For a course that was also closed all last summer for renovation they wasted or stole the money. Lot of better course around to play for much less money.

Close it down

This is literally the worst golf course I've ever played. They should just close it. The worst part about it is that we played it because their website advertises that it is a Golf Digest "Best Places to Play". What a lie. Don't be fooled by any low prices. The greens are not puttable and some of the fairways are just dirt.

Course is dry and in rough shape

Played 4/3/20. We were very disappointed in the course conditions. Very dry, not much grass on the tees and fairways. A few greens were fine but most had dry and dead areas. Tough to put with any consistency. A disappointment for sure.

Lucky it was perfect weather

Lucky it was perfect weather. But there is no grass on the fairways or tea boxes. Some of the areas look like they were chewed up by either birds or hogs (which I presume Roman night through the fields to the fairways).The greens were relatively quick but you had to go through the “green‘ S psoriasis“

I’ve played this course since it opened but it needs more than just water now. I cannot recommend this course in this condition. That having been said, I’m generally 100 shooters and they played a 91 today

Bad shape

This course I haven’t played for 20 years was a good course. However the t boxes, fairrways, and greens were very bad. Disease and poor care are the cause. April 1 Florida courses should be in top shape, not here!
No water or beverages available. Zero!
They used the excuse that the restaurant is closed due to the virus. I said bring the cooler over and make water available. No response.
Will not play again in 20 years!
