Solid course.

Definitely would play here again. Raptor Bay with all the rain they had the last few days was an excellent shape. The tee boxes were great, the fairways are excellent and the greens were awesome. This is the first time I played Raptor Bay in about 2 years and the course was just about the same like it was two years ago almost perfect. Because of the virus you had to handle your own clubs from the car to the cart but that was no big deal. From the cart guys to the people in the Pro Shop and to the starter everybody was very pleasant.

sunny afternoon

back to Raptor since Oct - course is in excellent shape with fantastic greens - only problem today far too many slow players which caused delays on just about every hole but since it was so hot we just went with the flow. course starter was excessively rude shouting out orders - not a good way to start a round, needs a class on client services.

Raptor review

Very good layout. Very picturesque- lots of nature. Very good service.

Course needs much better upkeep. Some fairways very thin. Poor divot repair program. Ragged around some tee boxes.

With some owner $ and some TLC this could be a special place.

Challenging in the wind

I find this course to be challenging. If you can control your ball, it is a fair test. However, for those of us that occasionally struggle with directional control, well then you miss in the wrong spots and it can be very penal. We played the Blue/White Combo tees at 5600 yds and with the wind, it was definitely enough. No bunkers on the course but the greens are elevated and the surrounds are contoured - doesn't bode well for bump and run approaches. Fun round, score could have been better, but will definitely be back to try again.

Hate to Head North

Second time playing Raptor Bay during Covid-19. It's organized great golfing. Fairways are wide as only missed one fairway. Greens are enormous and made putting challenging. Very green, uncrowded, and friendly people working out there. Great option during tough times.

Enjoyable To Play

RB is one of my favorite courses to play in the area and they have their act together with regard to the changes they've made to accommodate social distancing needs.

It's not the least expensive place to play but always in great condition. With the range closed the value proposition is a bit less but a hard to beat experience.

Typical Ray Floyd course.

You’ll need your entire bag. Accuracy is a must. Elevated greens require high approach shots. It was a great round..

Raptor Bay

Course is a lot of fun. It is a nature preserve type feel. Holes are challenging but fair. Tee boxes could use some work. Staff was very nice. Covid precautions were in place and observed.
