About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 6477
Slope 129
Rating 70.9
Type Semi-Private
A true links style reminisent of many of the old Scottish Courses. Well thought out, with just the right amount of fescuitous hazards nee and far. The wind seems to change direction at will here giving it a true "links feel". The greens require a steady hand to beat the undulations. The course rebounded after a wee bout with the green rot, I look forward to this year. Lasses, prepare to strap one on if you want to play from the real tees on 18! Hoots man, It's magic!!

Get What You Pay For

We wanted to see what we could get for a low price on a fairly well rated course. The course was a fantastic layout that has seen a better day. Lots of deep traps, some water and not overly wide fairways made it a good challenge on this short course. Sadly, it was not in the best condition. I always look at the traps and how they are maintained to assess a course. They were in poor shape. They could be much better. Almost no rakes to be found near the traps. I also look at the driving range. No markers, no signage making me think they didn't have money for those kinds of things. Looked like a course that needed a cash infusion to get it into tip top shape. I think they almost lost about half of the green on a couple of holes. Despite the cons on this course, it could be a nicer place to play. A big positive is that the ladies tees are 50-60 yards in front of the men's so it makes it more fair. It was worth the $30 for greens fees. We are going to be here a few days so we will try out a couple more courses and pay a little more.

Good value

This course received some below average reviews lately, but overall this was a good value. It is an interesting course in a gated community with several challenging holes. Pace of play was great and I enjoyed my round. It has been rumored that the course is closing. If so, I am glad I played it, but I hope the info is wrong, because it was a fun round.

This course needs some improvements.

Course was in extremely poor condition. Hitting from the tee boxes was like hitting from the rough. Greens were also in bad shape. Because this area has had an inordinate amount of rain and the course appeared to not have any drainage, the fairways were like a swamp. I hate to badmouth a course so I will probably replay this course but only after there has been no rain for an extended period.

course has potential but needs some fertilizer

Nice ride in past the guard house and you feel like you are going to a typical myrtle course. When you pull up the bag drop area is fine. attendant was attentive and personable as was the pro shop guy. pro shop was nice like a clubhouse with a pool table snack bar. unfortunately then you head to the course. driving range is closed for over a month. netting on sides looks like it's abandoned. first tee was crabgrass and weeds. If you have to do one thing on the course it's make the first tee look nice and they failed there. course is layed out nice with some dog legs, carries over water, etc but you can't help but notice ant hills and crag grass is everywhere. I guess they are aving on fertilizer. it's a shame, not worth the time until they fix it up.

Course needs Attention

the course is in poor condition and desperately needs to TLC. Weeds growing on the tee block, ant hills everywhere. Certainly not keep like it used to be!

decent value for the money

Course is in decent shape, short and straight forward. Greens are in need of some help bur at reasonably fast. Played on a day with virtually nobody out on the course except a group of three and a foursome, neither of whom would let me through even though I made the turn in 45 minutes. Amazing to see this kind or golf manners. I will play there again.
