Incredible Layout and Scenery

Had to highlight how incredible the courses and facility are, simply amazing, as well as it being tremendous value for the money. Pictures don't do the elevation changes enough justice, yet at the same time you rarely ever have to hit a blind shot. Play it if you can, can't wait to be back

Short Course

The Short Course was our second round of the day. We practically had the course to ourselves, not seeing anyone else until #17. The greens are in very good shape and seemed to have far fewer pitch marks than the last time I played about 6 weeks earlier. The tee boxes are the worst I've seen on any course so far this year; bare, hardly any grass, and any cover looks to be the dead remnants of weeds after a herbicide application. However, the condition of the greens made up for the lacking tee boxes. I always enjoy playing this Short Course.

Crossings Course

The Crossings front nine was in very good shape. The back nine fairways and greens seemed to be suffering a bit. Overall, the greens had good speed, rolled well, and the few bare spots weren't interfering with the hole placements. This is the first course I've played with the cups turned upside down rather than the pool noodles set in the cups. We found it much better putting having the cups upside down compared to the pool noodles approach; the flags also seemed to stand more upright. We came upon a slow threesome starting at #12 that we had to follow the remainder of the round; other than the frustration with the slow play, the round was well worth the 1.5 hour drive.

Great Coure Layout with Excellent Conditions

This was my first time playing The Falls course at Magnolia Grove. I really loved the course.

The staff (bag attendants, restaurant, starter, pro shop) were all friendly and very helpful and accommodating.

The course has an excellent practice area and has everything you would want or need in order to practice and improve your game.

The course is great starting out from the 1st tee to the final green. The course is laid out straight forward and in front of you so very easy to navigate as a first timer. The course is in excellent condition. The greens have lots of slopes and subtle undulations with good speed and pace. The clubhouse is very nice along with a nice restaurant. The biggest drawback is that the carts do not have coolers, not does the clubhouse have a cooler. If you want a cold drink, take your own cooler. I only saw the beverage cart one time all day long.

All in all, i highly recommend the Falls course. I will definitely play again when I am in the Mobile area.

Great Short Course

The Short Course was our second 18 of the day. This is a great layout and extremely fun. The elevation changes and the variation in yardages keep these short holes interesting throughout the round. The greens were slower than the Falls' greens we played earlier in the day, but they were in equally good condition. The tee boxes, however, were rather poor and uncharacteristic for a RTJ site.

Challenging and fun

We played the Falls course for the first time ahead of an approaching frontal system. The course was considerably damp from the excessive rain so far this year but it held up well and the course conditions were overall good. I had heard the Falls was challenging and the excessive winds ahead of the approaching front made for a true test. The greens were slower than expected, again due to the early season rainfall. However, they were in very good shape and rolled smooth. I will definitely be returning to enjoy this course again.

Passing thru

Staff was good , partbway into the round I went to use the divot sand box on the golf cart to find it full of beer cans on
top of the sand , somebody is not doing their job. Greens are fast how I like them, they could use a ranger to help move the twosome along while the threesome waited , us

Stunning course

Played the Falls course as part of a golfing vacation from England. The course is simply stunning from the 1st tee to the final green. The course is pretty much laid straight out in front of you so easy to navigate as a first timer. Course in excellent condition with the only shame being course works on 9 and 10 which were shortened. The greens have severe slope and subtle borrows but good pace and approach shots held. The clubhouse is lovely and all staff were friendly and attentive. Gone in to my top 5 played so highly recommend playing it if you get the chance

Fun Short Course

We played the short course following our Crossings course outing. Playing from the orange tees, the short course ranged from 90-190 yards. Most of the tee shots were to downhill pins placed on the front of the greens. This was a fun wind down to end the day. The greens are in very good condition, although slightly less in comparison to the Crossings condition. There is some noticable need of attention on several of the tee boxes, mainly invasive grass. It's a great deal at a $22 replay rate. We didn't see another group throughout the entire round. I will definitely play again and highly recommend for tweaking the short game.

Magnolia Grove Review

I played on the the Crossings course. Thumb up to the course. It's high-quality. Slow play, though, but pace was good on the back nine. Greens were very fast and in good condition. Bunkers were thick with much sand. The course looked good and was very green. Many trees. Beautiful scenery. Nice people on the course including my playing partners who I met at the course.

Golf Buddies trip

8 golfers played this course for the first time. We found it rather challenging for that reason, but the course was in excellent condition - tees, fairways, and greens. We found the staff to be friendly. We definitely want to play this course again next year.

Wet!

I would avoid this course until it has a chance to dry out. Quite simply some of the holes should not have been in play. Balls on the fairway plugged and there was casual water on most holes. It was disappointing as the layout was good with some interesting holes. We played the short course in the afternoon and that didn't have the same problems with drainage.

Know your weather...

So apparently mobile is one of the places that gets the most amount of rain, begs the question “why build a golf facility that drains poorly”?!
Range looked beautiful but closed
Was going to play falls but everyone of the staff told me to play the other course since falls was to wet...
Water was standing on the crossing course too
No reduction in price either
It really is a shame with all the money thy was put into this facility but based on my experience it will be the only one I play in this area

Course was in great shape aside from a few tee boxes. Staff was not extremely friendly or it would be a 5 Star review.

Great course and layout

Tees were in great shape. Fairways in great shape with winter rye grass. Greens were pretty smooth considering the play this place gets. Greens had ball marks but most players do not fix them. Great layout from 4 tee areas. I played white and wife played teal. Pace of play was super. Plsyed in 3 hours and 50 minutes. . Sandtraps were also in excelent condition.
