Good enough to play again

Decent course for a decent price. Course was not very challenging, which was good for me. Navigating the course was a bit difficult, missing some signs and had to travel far to a few tee boxes. Staff was great. Greens were in rough shape, but will definitely will play here again once the greens come back.

Great course and best practice range around

I play Blue Sky 2-3 times a month and I have not been disappointed. The greens have a few bad spots on them but overall the course is in good shape. Wide open with few hazards. Good confidence builder course. I always play a good round here. Even if you are not good off the tee there is a good amount of forgiveness in this course.

Great day of golf

Course was under construction as they are improving the overall condition. Haven’t play here in years. Was a bit more crowded with older players stacked up and not allowing others to play through. Made for a long 18 holes. I would wait for the improvements to be done before recommending this to others. Staff was nice. I was a little put off by the amount of sand on each green. It made for some weird putting. Overall we still had a good time.

Better signage needed

The practice facility is beautiful so we were impressed but when we got on the course it was frustrating. Poor signage for players to know where the next hole was and how each hole was laid out. On one hole we almost hit onto the wrong green because we had to guess which flag was ours. No out of bound markers for water hazards, no hole description on the scorecard or by the tee box, so lots of blind shots. Not a bad course if you know it, but frustrating for us vacationers.

Over charged for the round of golf.

The staff is clueless on how paying through Golf Now works. The price was $33.95 or $38.82 with tax($155.27 for four players). We were charged $39.03 deposit on-line. Then when we showed up at the course the staff charged us another $43.00 per player ($172 for four). Once we produce our Golf Now receipt they reduced the charge to $33.00 per person (two of us had to go back in and get refunds), so the total cost per person was $42,76, $3.94 more per person than the booking cost on Golf Now stated.

Best shape since the reopening. Keep up the good work!

The course is in the best shape that it has been since it reopened as Blue Sky. I had given up on it for a while, but played in mid-July and it was decent. It was even better when I played today in mid-August. I'm impressed with the work that has been done. At this time last year the greens were in pretty bad shape so I give them credit for the improvements. I just wish that the 9-hole green fees were a little more reasonable than $22.95. The after 3pm 18 rate is $28.95 is on par, but not everyone has time to play a full 18 and at $22.95 you are not really getting a good value to just play 9.

Better each week

Cmon guys. Some of you criticized the course knowing it was aerated. Some fairways and all the greens. It is almost back to normal and some of the greens are going to be better than before. If you're from here you should know this is a seasonal thing and ask before setting a tee time. If you remember the course when it was Mill Cove in the early days and in good condition, you will notice that they have softened the course. Way more playable now and faster to play. The range has some family oriented additions that should attract youngsters and hopefully the younger generation. The staff is very friendly and efficient and the restaurant/food is great. I for one appreciate the Hampton Group for bringing back this little gem of a course for us public players.

Don’t play this course. Not worth it. They have totally lost it. If you don’t enjoy playing golf I guess it’s the course for you. Tee boxes to greens were terrible.

What has happened to this place?

Full price for a course with greens that are punched and sanded, fairways that were punched and the plugs and dirt left laying all over the course. The positive is a pimp driving range and good food, the bad, really bad, is the course condition.

Disappointed

Will never pay this much to play this course again. With barren fairways and greens, not to mention recent aerification, the price, even for a weekend morning should be dropped considerably. Every other local public course has rates at least $10-15 lower through GolfNow and those courses are always in much better shape. Bent Creek, Cimarrone & Magnolia Pointe will always get my $ before this place!

Great Value

Hubbie and I played and it was above our expectSations, especially for the price. Not exceptionally long, but as seniors it was perfect. Easy to walk, greens not like lightning, but fair, once you get the speed. Fairways for time of year were starting to fill in, and I imagine soon will be great. Basic course but above average for the price. The staff were excellent, the lady in the clubhouse who is the pro shop and restaurant all in one, was so friendly, efficient, made you feel so welcome. Was early for time so had a breakfast sandwich, excellent, went to starter and there was room so got off early. Nothing at all to complain about. Washrooms and water on the course. They need a decent driving range, and until they do should not charge for balls, but noticed they were putting in a putting practice green. Good job all.
