Played Cypress Bend at Craft Farms in a friends foursome two weeks ago. I highly recommend playing here. It is a great track! The staff was great, pace of play was excellent, and the course was beautiful even in mid February! The greens were excellent. I will definitely play here again this year. If you are going to be on the Gulf and want to get a round in, go check out Cypress Bend at Craft Farms. The practice facility is great too!

Course was in difficult condition and was extremely wet, especially in fairways. Cotton Bend does not drain very well, and the greens were very inconsistent, some slow and some fast. My primary concern is the

rudeness of staff, especially the starter and ranger on pushing our group to play faster. We played in 3 hrs 52 mins, and was told on several occasions to keep up with the group in front of us which was a 3 some who were playing the senior tees. This is not the first time we have been pushed at this golf course, but after today I will not be back, and will not purchase 6 packs at this course again.

We want to share how much we appreciated Paola and her assistance when we were at the golf course on Friday, Feb. 2 and today, Feb 6th. She is a real asset to the business and is VERY professional. We appreciated her advice of playing Cypress, as we haven't played much golf since November and weren't ready for any big challenges. She did a great job of managing the telephone and her customers. Because of her and your great golf course, we will be back on Thursday for a tee time of 1:04. Once again, it will be a pleasure to see Paola's friendly face when we check in.

Even though the area had received a fair amount of rain, Cypress was in great condition and not soggy. Play was at a steady pace.

We also want to mention that the starter was very helpful, as he took us to #1 and gave us a verbal layout of the course. The gentleman has a great sense of humor and was a great person to start us off on your course.

This is the 2nd Palmer designed course I've played, and the layout is very similar. Palmer designed courses are big on risk and reward shots and enjoys over water shots on Par 3s.

Conditions were good, although some tee boxes needed a little TLC. Staff were friendly from bag drop to snack shop.
