Very good for winter conditions

The course was typical winter conditions. Hardly any grass. But I thought it played very well for this time of year. Great friendly staff. I would play again when the conditions and grass returns. Looking forward to it.

Great course.

The course was in great condition even with all the heat. The fish smell from the fish kill in the ponds was bad. Overall great course and will play again.

Worst Outing Ever!

Without a doubt, this was the most aweful golf outing I have ever had. There were only 2 good things to note. The young man in the pro shop was excellent; hats off to The Island as he is a true asset (my apologies for not remembering his name). The only other good thing about this day was the perfect weather.

I have seen this course in much better shape before. As a matter of fact, while on the range (it was ok at best), I heard one "member" tell another that they were lucky to be members because if they had to pay full price for this course as it was, they would not do it; for the record, I paid what I believed was a full price.

Most of the fairways were overrun with weeds and clover. There was areation all over the course; fringes, fairways and even some of the greens. However, the very worst thing was that I was under constant attacks by swams of bugs/gnats!

I played two other courses during this trip and neither of them had bugs/gnats of that magnitude. I don't know why they were so bad, but one guy asked me about the bugs and I said they were aweful. These folks need to do something to treat and/or get rid of those bugs; they do not make for an enjoyable day.

I am not certain that I will ever return to this course, especially in its current state.

Very tough course

Played from the gold tees, but definitely should have played from the blacks. This course has a lot of trouble left and right and your tee shot must be perfect. Course was in great shape. Greens were extremely fast but could use a little more grass.

Good value

This is a great course for the money. The staff was very friendly. It’s kind of off the beaten path as they say from Baton Rouge but worth it. The only issue is Golf Now has the wrong address listed. I had to call the pro shop to find it , I almost missed my tee time ..

Interesting holes, good greens.

I am visiting family and brought my clubs from Pennsylvania and enjoyed the course. Good practice facilities, really good rolling greens, traps all well maintained, just a nicely maintained and designed course. I felt the price was really fair and although I didn’t partake of their off course amenities they seemed well done.

I’d play it again, no question. The young man runners no the pro shop was welcoming and polite. Nice day on the course,

Beautiful November Golfing

The short and sweet; the staff was good; the course was great; the weather was awesome! The "amenities" were under construction, but in spite of that, the lady in there was super nice and helpful!

I would definitely play this course again!
