The course itself was not an issue, but the slow play was unbearable. We played 4.5 holes in 1hr and 35 min. When I went in they gave me a rain check for a quarter of the price I paid. I am new to the area and have had nothing but success with the courses but this is one that they can keep the raincheck because I won't be back.

The greens were a little rough, but rest of course in good shape. There was quite a backup the day we played. The course needs a ranger so when people aren’t playing to keep up with the group in front they are warned. There was also a group in front of us with no course etiquette.

This is a nice course with a open layout. There is water on 16 of 18 holes, much of it in play if your shot errs. The staff was friendly and the facilities are fine. The greens are not in very good shape but putts rolled surprisingly true. I would play it again

Cimarrone Golf Club is in excellent condition! As a member of the Pinehurst golf courses, I find Cimarrone just as challenging and beautiful. It's layout is a test of your ability.. try to avoid the water as most holes have it. In addition, the clubhouse service is enjoyable. The food is plentiful and quite reasonable. I recommend the turkey club, turkey reuben or chef salad with their homemade ranch! Great drink specials and lots of friendly people!

This is a fun fair and nicely designed course.

The greens are a bit tricked up in that the slopes are severe and very punitive, perhaps a bit too much for the average player.

Wouldn’t hesitate to go back here for the money.

It rained pretty hard for the first 5 holes and then on and off for another 2 holes. Then the sun came out and stayed until the end.

The course was pretty waterlogged before the rain but just got worse after the downpour. It did not drain well.

The pace of play was so bad that we went from the ninth green back to the first tee and replayed the first nine. There were no rangers to enforce a steady pace of play

The greens very poor with many patches on every green that had no grass whatsoever.

I hadn't played the course for a while and was very disappointed with the state of the greens. I have had this experience with this course previously, going from really good to very run down. I will wait until I hear good reports before I play the course again. Sorry Cimarrone, you were one of my favorite courses, I hope you can become so again.

Good consistent conditions. Over seed just starting to fill in. Very good conditions for this time of the year - between seasons. Bag Drop / cart attendant / starter (one guy) could have been a little more informative - well make that could have been at all informative. Didn't tell us anything. He was no where to be found when it got to our tee time and we had to ask where the first tee was located. Some signs around, but poorly placed so we to figure it out. Otherwise, a good experience.
