The traps are more dirt than sand and are hard as stone (and many filled with stones). Many areas adjacent to fairways are hard pan or just dirt. Greens were ok but a bit slow. But, it is February so what do you expect. It’s better than snowshoeing.

The layout is good and the pace of play was great. Course staff and restaurant staff were friendly,and helpful.

If you keep it in the fairway and hit greens in regulation you’ll be fine!

Track is very nice. Pin placement was difficult at the top of several ridges. Greens have some patches but overall greens roll very nice. Bunkers are massive but need more soft sand added. Love the course.

Greens were in very good shape while fairways and rough were dormant and okay at this time of year. I'd describe the course as forgiving for my first round in 4 months.

Enjoyed the round, had two birdies and some close misses. The greens were super receptive to my shots.

i was teamed up with two others who provided great company and guide around the course.

Will return to play when the warmer weather comes around..

The Golfnow prices made it worthwhile

We are sorry to hear about your less than perfect experience at Oyster Reef.

Pace of play is one of our biggest concerns and we try to keep track of this the best we can. We do apologize and hope to see you again in the future.

Nice practice areas; fun layout. Lots of sand. Winter conditions with dormant fairway grass and slightly slower greeens but still in very good shape. Will definitely play here again . Pace of play slow due to 3 inexperienced 4 somes ahead of us but it was probably not the norm here. Very friendly and attentive staff.

Nice course with excellent conditions for late Fall. Greens challenge the best putters with some very tough pin positions. Bunkers didn’t have much sand and was the only fault I could find.
