9 hole jewel

My wife and I stayed at the Marriott Grand Vista. I brought my golf clubs and booked a round. It was not disappointing. The course is well groomed from tee box to green. It can be challenging with water everywhere, mid bunkers, nature areas, along with water guarding greens. The distance is easily manageable with 3 tees to choose from. It winds around the resort, but not near any building, which often is the case with golf courses in communities. My only gripe is the number of families out playing with their youngsters, which slowed play on occasion. On the other hand, it was nice to see families out playing together ; kids have to start somewhere.

Great Place for a Quick Fix

Grand Vista is a 9 hole short course. It will do in a pinch if you cannot get on anywhere else. the course is always in good shape and generally pace of play is not an issue. It is only 9 holes so 18 would be playing it twice, It is not bad if other courses are not available. It does have an excellent locker room area if that is desired.

Grand vista

Nice course not overly difficult, a lot of par threes. Fun to play 18,changed tee boxes on second nine for some variety. Course was very wet, cart path only . Had fun played nine holes with a very friendly member and played the second nine alone. I would recommend this course to everyone, stress free golf.

Slow play with a lot of new players with instructors. Had a foursome in front of me that were all new players and spent to much time looking for lost

Slow play with to many new players with instructors. Had a foursome in front of me which spent way to much time looking for lost balls or ball hawking in the woods. Ranger is needed to keep new players without knowledge of game rules to keep moving.

Course layout was good and greens in good shape.

Love the course

Always enjoy this Executive Course. Interesting and challenging but not long and tiring Staff seemed distant maybe because of Covid. No one picked up or helped me with clubs before golfing or upon finishing. Been here in past and service and friendliness were great. Also, really missed the Grill being open.

Really Nice Course. Not so helpful staff.

I would absolutely come back to this course. It is an easy course to play and it was a nice layout. Well manicured. The staff must have thought we were invisible, (3 guys completely ignored us) but other than that, we enjoyed it. No help with clubs, nor did they even acknowledge our start. We loaded up our cart and basically started at our time with no help what-so-ever. Honestly we were dumbfounded. Anyhow, the course itself made up for it.
