Excellent Play

The staff was great and the grounds offered enough challenge to make the game that much better. The hills are awesome! Can’t wait to return.

Nice course

Love the links style course . One person in our foursome was running late and the starter Mark was great . He got the group behind us together and sent them out in our time slot . When are fourth was still not there he politely explained that we needed to go to the tee box as not to put everyone else behind and he would get our 4 th out to us. when he arrived . About 10 minutes later he came Mark in a cart with our 4 th at the second tee box ... very nice

Do not talk to workers unless you want bad round

Course was busy and condition was fair to good. Some employees need to cheer up. Some one to remind their employees serving customers start with kindness and courtesy..

Great course for the money and area.

A great course for the area. It’s between some golf buddies and I so when we decide to meet somewhere in the middle we play sanctuary lakes. The course always seems to be in great shape and I love that I can warm up with 30 balls at the range before hand for only $4. I don’t have to buy a $10 bucket and leave half of it there to make our tee time.

I made reservations online and was greeted quickly and without issue upon arrival. We teed off on time and although quite windy the course was in excellent condition. The layout can be a little confusing between holes for first time eras and occasional users but improved signage along the cart path helps. The greens and pin positions are challenging. The restaurant appeared small and therefore limited to a small number of guests for post golf food and refreshments. Overall, an enjoyable and convenient location.

A little disappointed.

Course was a little rough this day. Not used to that. This course is usually in good shape. Hopefully it gets better

Ok

Noon tee time but #1 box was wide open clear for 2 holes at 11:50. My group was ready to go but starter elected to have us wait for a group of ladies that were running late. Starter informed us to allow them to clear green before we tee off.They got to the tee box at 11:55 and took warm up swings and 2 mulligans. By the time they cleared the fairway it was already 12;15. we elected to ignore the starter an tee off because there was a group waiting behind us. It was not until #12 that the marshall/ starter told them to pick up the pace
The course is in good shape but the pace was hard to deal with.the first 11 holes. T all golfers, If your slow then let people play through. I don't want some on my butt when I'm a bit slower the those behind me.

Not Bad - can be better

Played here for first time. The course was not in the best shape. Fairways were dry and putting greens had many patch spots and did not roll consistently. I prefer firmer fast greens and it was very slow and bumpy.

There are some nice scenic views on a few holes and course can be challenging if you don’t stay in the fairways. Overall it’s not bad for the value.

Play was a little slower but expected on a Friday afternoon.

Unique and challenging

I shoot 95-105 regularly. And this course was the good kind of challenging. Very unique with the links style layout. Some elevated tee boxes and low chance of losing a ball were bonuses. A bit pricey but I’d definitely play this course again.
