Average but good course

Some tee boxes need attention. Greens are very slow. General condition of course is better than most. This isn’t a $100 golf course, but being at a casino drives that. Good, average course to go play if you don’t mind spending $100 to play an average course.

Hurricane recovery

Course in good shape, all things considered. Greens were recently sanded but still fairly fast and rolled pretty good. Fairways in good shape, rough fairly thick but not unmanageable. They lost a lot of trees with the hurricanes but have done a good job of cleaning up. Sand traps were not playable as they have not yet been reworked since the storms. Many have water, gravel, or mud so we just took a drop. A nice place to play and no crowds to deal with during the week.

Great time

Everything was great! My only complaint is that we only saw the beer cart once towards the end of our round and there was no ice to be had. They did send out the help with a little ice for us after we left upset. It was only 95* with 90% humidity. Overall, it was great.

Invasive grass on greens

Course was in pretty good shape for mid-Winter, with the exception of the invasive poa annua grass on many of the greens. Overall very enjoyable.

High School Buddies

One of the most fun rounds of golf ever. Clouds cleared 60 degrees & sunny, beautiful day. Course was in great shape even after all the rain. Fairways in great shape & greens were in good shape as well.

Sam Siatunuu's review

Excellent course, well worth my money. My wife really enjoyed herself playing. She doesn't play very much, so it was really great to see her enjoyed the pace of play and not be rushed.
