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.

Don’t Expect Lush

The course is fun to play but expect a challenge. Don’t beat yourself up for a bad hole. If you don’t get into at least one bunker during the round your inhuman. The course condition was good, the fairways are tight. The tees and bunkers could use TLC as the tees are scuffed up and the bunkers are filled with rocks. Move the rocks, don’t ruin your clubs. The greens are fine, nothing memorable. Overall, I would recommend the course for its uniqueness and challenge. Don’t expect a pristine course. Maybe that’s the look they are going for as it is similar to a links course. But, the pictures on their website don’t reflect that look as they show deep green and lush fairways.

Challenging but Fair

I've played Twisted Dune every year for past 6 years. Course is long and you don't get too many flat lies in the subtly sloping fairways. Good landing areas for tee shots, you don't have to be precise in your length. Every hole is surrounded by berms and a lot of prickly vegetation. All the holes have their own character and are beautiful and challenging. Greens were in great shape. Played with my daughters and single handicapped brother in law. 5 sets of tees allowed all of us to take on different but fair challenges every hole. Hot Deal for $55. Very fair price for a great course.

Would have been great...

First off, no complaints about the course itself. Very fair, very challenging. First let down was that we came her because of a golf digest article about 5 courses most similar to Scotland. The website also advertises this. This course wasn’t anything like Scotland. The other reason this course gets a bad review is due to the pace. I booked the tee time the previous night and checked again the morning of the round. There was a twosome an hour ahead and a foursome half an hour ahead. By the 5th hole we were all stacked up and this led to a 4 1/2 hour round. We were a twosome trying to get around fast. Ranger drove by us 3 times on the back nine, never said anything. You can’t enjoy a round when your sitting behind hacks and the ranger wouldn’t help accomadate you. Won’t be coming back, not worth $70 on a Monday morning
