disappointed !

You would think for the $90 rate they charge they would a least mow the fairways. The carts are a little run down also. Greens were fast and in good shape(best and only good thing today)....nice layout but I'm guessing Twisted Dunes is mismanaged and not putting much money back into the course.

Fun but challenging links-style course

This is an enjoyable course with mostly VERY-wide fairways off the tee and large greens with lots of slope and punishing hazards. The par-3s are excellent, set nicely in their surrounds and varying in their distance and elevations. The greens overall are large and very quick, with slopes and undulations that challenge long putts. The fairway movement is good and usually flows through containment dunes. The bunkers are generally large, deep, and with hard sand that can be very penal. Other than one quirky par-5 where you are forced to hit a short second shot and have a long third shot left, the course generally makes good use of bunkers, ponds, dunes, and waste areas to set up shot options. The course is walkable but there are quite a few long green to tee distances. The overall aesthetic is very nice and naturalistic looking with the dunes and tall grass. The challenges vary between apparent bunkering and tall grass areas, and blind shots from elevations or fairways on a couple of holes bending around and through dunes. The fairway grass was longer than I would have expected and didn't run very firm, however I did play the day after some heavy rain. The staff was very nice and helpful.

Great course

Really enjoyed the layout of the course. Initially bit surprised by the clubhouse, which is bit lacking to say the least, but the course layout and condition more than made up for it.

Gives you some options on shots to play, and all things considered, I thought it was one of better courses to play in AC. I had some other courses to play the day before, but really thought we saved the best of last with this course.

Highly recommend to try it out.

The recent reviews were saying the traps were terrible. Any comment on those?

Mushy

This is a great all around golf experience.

The other two in my 3some were also using a Golf Now Hot Deal.

No fault of the course, but with all the rain of the past week, it was cartpaths only, which means a bit of walking and climbing up and down dunes. Yet still it was only a 4 1/2 hr round on Sat afternoon. Can’t wait to play in dry conditions.

Great course

I just loved this course. Very challenging and the winds were making up play 40-50 yards off target. I could play this course every week. Greens were true and fun to putt on

First time playing TD

I have been vacationing in the area for the past few years and have played several local courses. This year we chose to play here. The staff was great from the bag drop, to the pro shop, the starter, and even the ranger. We had a 7:30 tee time for 3 of us. There were 6 groups ahead of us and we never had to wait. We finished our round under 4 hours. The course has definitely been played this year and the fairways/tee boxes could use some TLC. The greens were lightning fast but in great shape. The bunkers could use from raking to remove larger stones.

Overall, we had a great time and will definitely play this course again.
