First Impression

Course layout great.

Great layout that they’ve let slide

Talega has some of the best hole designs in So OC. Demands quality shots to score. It is sad to see such a wonderful track be so poorly maintained. A good value only if you book through golf now. Otherwise the posted green fees would discourage return.

Great course, need to educate players

Everything was great, but hole 15 from the white tees? Who knows where to hit it. My dad probably hit his best drive of the year, nowhere to be found.

Overall good

Some odd holes on the back but not bad. Pace was good. Conditions were good. Long blind par 4 on the back was odd. I would go again

Great Course

Love the course. This round, however, took 5 hours. It was really slow play. There wasn’t a Marshall to move things along.
Plus there was not a drink cart on the course.
But- It is still a great course and I would play there anytime!

Subpar

I’m happy I was able to get a good deal on today’s round. There is a lot of potential for this course, but honestly, it was disappointing to play this course with such poor upkeep of the greens, fairways and bunkers. I would probably play here again, hopefully not paying full price again, and hopefully the course will be under better condition.

POOR GREENS

THE FAIRWAYS WERE BROWN LOOKING BUT STILL IN DECENT SHAPE. THE GREENS HOWEVER ARE STILL HEALING AFTER BEING PUNCHED ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO. OVERALL THE GREENS WERE NOT IN GOOD SHAPE WITH SOME BEING STICKY LIKE VELCRO , SOME SLOW, OTHERS WERE OK. THE PRACTICE GREEN WAS NOT INDICATIVE OF THE WAY THE COURSE GREENS WERE.
