Great Value for the Money

Course was dry and in great shape. The greens are well taken care of and the fairways and most of the teeing surfaces were in good playing shape. The pace of play in the afternoon, at least, was good and the practice areas are well kept, too. Fun course to play this time of year.

Absolutely the Best

Why have I waited so long and wasted so much playing some of the other courses in the Southsound? Course conditions were absolutely awesome. Greens true and consistent throughout. Nice to get away from the city sounds and houses and enjoy the day. Sanitizing stations throughout the course, staff get friendly and helpful to newbys at the course. Top-notch practice areas where range balls starting at $4.00 for a small bucket of about 30 balls. Saw two deer and a few Hawks and eagles. Sorry Capitol City and Lakeland Village, I've got a new favorite course.

Tumwater Valley!

Everyone was friendly, and Thursday I played another local course, five hour round. When we teed off, it looked like another five hour plus round. They kept the pace of play moving and we were just under four hours!

Raaaay neeeeearrrr!! “It’s in the water”

Fairways were a little mushy in spots but greens rolled fast and true!
Got to witness a Hole in one by Donna on the back side. Way to go girl!!
Our score card on that hole read 1,2,3 and 4. :)
Will definitely come back.

Good Value

Fairly flat open layout. No houses and very pretty. Conditions are average for a muni. It WILL be wet in the winter. Very nice in the summer. Greens can get fast when dry. Practice facilities are top notch. HUGE all grass practice tee. Covered mats for winter. Large practice green and separate green for short game and bunker play. Yes a practice bunker. Nice restaurant. 20% discount for daily fee players. In the summer T-Time for weekend play. Weekday afternoons probably walk on.

Terrible greens

The course was a bit soggy, grass clippings clumped and all over the place. Greens were very bumpy and bit sandy, frankly worst greens I’ve ever played. Also, I found out that out that our GolfNow “hot deal” was more expensive than the going rate st the course by quite a bit actually. Our total cost for 2 at GolfNow was over $72. If I would have booked at the course directly it would have cost $25 per person and come with a complimentary sleeve of balls. Will have to double check to confirm that “hot deal” is actually what it pretends to be.
