Compact irons course

Water hazards gobble up errant balls. Hit straight you can score decently. Greens very sandy effects putting efforts. Enjoyed the day

Too much $ for the experience. Odd layout. Same price as best area courses. Doesn't make sense.

Cart paths need attention, some tee boxes are a little rough. It’s a fun course to loosen up on and find your game again after the winter break. Greens are very good, practice area is excellent with four different greens.

Other greens keepers need to check out the condition

This week I played Emerald Bay, Seascape and The Pines course in Ft Walton. The best fairways and greens by far were here this week. My only complaint is a loud one, fix the cart paths before someone gets hurt and sues. I was going slow popped over a large root into a pot hole and that jarred me quite a bit. The course conditions were great and I gave a low score because the cart paths were in worse shape than in April when I played here last

Great Short Course

Great little course to work on short game! Greens were surprisingly in good shape. Cart path needed work, felt like I was in a mud bog sometimes but luckily Cart was 4wd!!!! Overall a great little track to play as a warmup or just to mess around.
