South Alabama Gem!

This was the second time in 4 years that I've played this course, and I don't understand why I haven't played it more. We played the Vista/Dunes courses. Great layout, fairways were in great condition, as were the greens. Probably need about 3 rounds to get a true feel/read on the putting. Speed was very good, but just didn't get the 'true reads' on the putts. I would highly recommend this course, and if you hit a great drive on the Signature Hole (#16), you HAVE to go for it in two!!!!!

Slightly rough around the edges. A beverage cart or more water stations would be welcome in the southern heat. Staff are great though

Pushed

To many golfers not spaced for leisurely play. Even if u let play through I felt pushed. I would hustle to move along but would end up waiting for players to tee off etc. It was terrible, wait hurry. Marshals were out there to move it along but you can only go so fast. Not fun actually stressful.

Enjoyable golf

We have played this course many times over the years and it was the same fun round that it always is. Pace of play was a little on the slow side but not horrible. The tee boxes and fairways were in great shape while the greens were just average. Mainly, the greens were very slow in comparison to previous rounds played here with a little bump in them along with some sand. Still, a fun round of golf.
