Fun year round course

The off season price was a good price. The course was still fun in the winter conditions. The course was maintained pretty well for being off season as well.

Wonderful Fall Saturday round

The course wasn't as packed as I thought it was going to be and the round moved really nicely and everyone there was very courteous and respectful!

Fast Times at Sanctuary High

I love this course and the staff. Pace of play is always right on point. Craig and Brandon are very friendly and helpful. We did get rained out but they gave us half our money back which was nice. Very nice course and staff overall.

Fun Course ..... but.....

Pace of Play was terrible we paid for 18 started at 4:30pm and never finished, there were always 2-3 groups waiting at every hole. The course itself is fun and challenging but dont think I will return.

Seeing improvements and getting better.

The course was in great condition. tee time was on time and the pace of play was much better than in the past. Still not a quick round at 4:50 but better. They had a ranger pushing people along and the staff was very friendly and helpful. You can tell they are making improvements.

Surprising & good course.

We had a fun time . Moved right along. Played in 4 hours. Some of the holes were surprising. Had some of the “up north” features. Everyone was cordial from the check in to completion. Could not stay for drinks after, but enjoyed the day.

Good city course

Course was in good condition. The greens had a lot of ball marks and were bumpy. Tee times r in 8 min intervals so the course is always backed up. Expect your round to be 5 hours long.

Needs work

Driving range in very poor shape. Little grass. May as well just put em on the mats. Course has always struggled to stay grass throughout. A number of bare hard spots. Greens a bit shaggy overall. Lots of ball marks. I always repair 2 or 3 other than my own. A bit over priced for what was delivered.

Excellent links course

Excellent course with great manicured grounds. Actual real fluffy sand and a pleasure to play with ample challenging holes.
