Hidden Gem

Have played this course several times over the past years. It has always been in good condition. It is a nice mix of some challenging, some easier holes, and some quite scenic holes. It also has a touch of elevation here and there. The course pace of play has been very good whenever I have been there. The staff, course conditions and facility are top notch.

Pace of play is HORRIBLE!

You better plan for a round taking 5 1/2 hours to complete....that is if you even have enough daylight. I’ve played this course twice in the past 3 weeks, “Scheduled tee-time” (We have not started on our payed for, reserved tee time once) with more than enough daylight to finish. The pace of play is so SLOW we couldn’t even get through 16 holes. Be prepared to wait!

Great value course

This is my home course. Played hundreds of times. Front 9 is fairly straightforward but back 9 is set on the hills so more elevation and course management required. Holes 17 and 18 are probably the most difficult so a good round can be destroyed by the last 2 holes. Good value and conditions usually pretty good.

Highly Recommend

This is a terrific lay-out in great shape. Fairways are in very good condition and the greens are smooth and fair, the views are an added bonus with Fall colors in full show. The course is challenging but fair for golfers of all abilities. Can't wait to return.

I enjoyed it

It’s a solid course for sure, but the greens were still pretty bumpy from punching, which surprised me as it was 3 weeks ago. Pace was slow, but pretty target golf here. Some strange holes, like 17 is 446 yards and I drove it through the fairway into the hazard with a 3 wood. My opinion you can’t make that long of a par 4 with requiring some to hit a 2 iron off the tee. It was dry for sure, but the tee boxes were mint and the fairways although hard were pretty good. All interactions with the staff were lovely, seemed like a great culture here.

Excellent

First time playing, just looking out over the course from the first tee box is already worth it! The field Marshall was extremely friendly and worked to get us out and playing as quickly as he could. The only downside I had was with the kid working the club house, he was very rude to my group and to a customer over the phone while we were waiting to check in. Outside of that this was an amazing course that I will be looking forward to playing again!

Great local course!

Been playing Callippe Preserve for years and it’s such a great course with challenging greens, cool tee lines from every tee box, and a great staff. I am lucky to have this gem in my ‘backyard’!

Wonderful round of golf

I played this course a year ago and at that time GPS was not provided in the cart. This round we enjoyed it more as we know the lay up distance before we t-off on some short holes. Didn't get ourselves into much trouble. The course condition is excellent even with cart on course. Green condition was soft and green speed is around 10,5.

Cool Layout, Beware of Mudballs

Course is a bit overwatered, I had a mudball 4 or 5 times hitting into the fairways and greens even though it hasn't rained in two weeks! But I suppose if it was too dry, the course would be unreasonably tough. Greens are faster now than in years past. Some bunkers look new, others are turning crustier.

Thumbs up!

Haven’t played here in years, and was very happy how the course has grown in. The only things I didn’t love was several fairways were too wet from over watering, and the cart GPS had incorrect hole locations, so the yardage to the flag was wrong on every hole. However, the greens were great, and two groups kindly let us play through - can’t wait to go back!!

Horrible pace of play.

They don’t seem to do anything about slow play. Got to the 10th tee; there were 4 groups on the hole. Pro shop said there was a slow group on 18. A slow group 9 holes ahead and they didn’t do anything. Really?

Sand traps under repair but greens looking better

The course offers many challenges to the average golfer. The greens looked better than I played it last although the greens got a little bumpy in the late afternoon probably due to the heavy traffic. Sand traps on #2 and #5 were under repair. I was paired with a couple who took to much time taking photos of each other. We were behind the front group by one complete hole after the 4th. So we ended up playing a 5 and a half hour round. The carts looked new and had a gps system installed but was not operational yet. Always fun to play here. I recommend everyone to come and see!

The green pretty good (3.5 stars) but really great. I was expecting little better quality greens. The carts were great (built in gps).
