Tatum ridge is a great course and I’ve enjoyed the different times that I’ve played it. That said, I was a little disappointed that many greens were recently redone. Half of the greens were true and the ball would roll as expected. The repaired greens were bumpy and need time to fully grow in. New sod.....not punched holes and sand. My frustration is in paying nearly $30 for a 12:30 tee time with no mention of the repaired greens. With the amount of rain within the previous week, I understand the fairways not being mowed. But again, no mention of either issue when booking through golfnow and no mention when submitting final payment at course. I will return to play sometime this summer as I enjoy the course layout and that it is relatively quiet and away from traffic. Hoping greens will be repaired by then.

Not the first time playing this course. Usually in good condition and kept in decent shape for the value.

We played on Friday and was not told of the condition of the “temporary green set up”. The course was in below average condition. Course condition should have been made aware prior to play.

It was a nice day and it's a nice layout. Four greens were being renovated and were replaced by temporary greens... be we look forward to returning in the fall to play on the new greens. Nice restaurant there as well.

The greens were so battered, tore up and painted green there was no sense bothering to keep a score. Either the snowbirds abused the greens, a bug got into them or just lack of proper maintenance. Won't return this year and if nothing is done to improve the greens, this course is history.

First time golfing here. We hadn't even unloaded our clubs from the car when a course employee drove up in a golfcart and parked behind our car and immediately put our clubs in the cart! Great service! The guys in the pro shop were very friendly and courteous. We were 45 minutes early and they let us tee off as soon as we were ready. We enjoyed a couple beers after our round and the bartender was attentive, no liquor, tho. Nice course, nice fairways but some of the greens were pretty rough due to the dry weather, I'm sure. We will definitely return!!

Tatum Ridge is a nice golf course with a great layout..I usually play it a couple time while I'm in the area over 4 mos...4/3/18 was my first time playing it this year and I looked forward to it. Unfortunately the course wasn't up to the standards of its past...I don't know if this is due to weather or lack of care . Many of its greens were in bad shape.. You had to move the ball so you were not putting over bare spots. I can only hope management can get this course back in the shape it deserves. Otherwise we played in a reasonable time and the staff was friendly and considerate... Hoping to see course improvements next season. And for that reason I wouldn't recommend this course at this time...
