Stay away from this course if you’re looking to actually golf. First, it’s only a 9 joke course. Secondly, there are no par 5’s. I didn’t even use my driver once. The jokes are very short. The course conditions were nice and so were the carts but that’s about it. Would not recommended to an experienced golfer

Very enjoyable 9 holes first thing in the morning. Starter very friendly and jovial. A couple of the holes are a little bland but the rest have good character and are still a test though on the shorter side. Value for money was excellent with golf now deal.

Regardless of it’s length, you have to keep the ball in play to score. Par threes are challenging from back tees, and the greens are tricky. If you are not familiar with them, you could end your round with several three putts! Play the green tees for nine and the white for nine. You will use nearly every club in your bag.

I play this course every year when just starting my week of Golf in the area. Marriott has the best practive facility to dial back in your pitching, chipping putting and driving. The couorse is a short 9 with a 62 par so it plays very easy and is a great way to ease back into the game after a long winter off.

Didn’t know this was a 9-hole, executive style course. It is more of a practice facility than a golf course. Having said that, it is in excellent shape and the holes get progressively harder. They said to be respectful of Charlie the alligator but we never saw him.

Nice 9 hole course, all par 3and 4. Only one hole with no water hazard. Enjoyable, well maintained. Low key Maintenance workers all over the place, but you never hear them.

Loved every minute, played 2 days and going again for the next 3 days. I wish I had more time.

Rented 1st class clubs $69 for 1 week. Staff very helpful and pleasant.

What I did not see is an official to make sure play is not backed up by slow players.

Course plays increasingly difficult. True pleasure to be out there. Make sure to say hi to the starter Phil. Go there almost purely for his conversation!
