Capt. Jeffrey

Great course, need to enforce pace of play, even though its August and the snowbirds are few pace of play needs to be addressed, played in June and left after 9 holes and 3 1/2 hours for 9 holes, I know they’re growing pains but needs to be overseen by the so called Marshall’s. More like Festus “I’m coming Marshall Dillon” SLOW SLOW PLAY

Good Track...But

First time and was pleasantly surprised at the facilities and course layout! Range your hitting floaters into the water target greens...not my favorite. Greens top dressed but a little fast and healing. Cart paths only...wish I knew that before booking. Course is low lying so it does hold water and was extremely wet! Long par fours, but we played it back and was a challenge in wet conditions! Public family friendly, good for the novice but needs better drainage with the south Florida weather! Will go back when we're in a drought..lol!

First time playing since it was redone

Course was in great shape and the clubhouse is gorgeous. Didn’t like the way the greens rolled at all.

Relatively short but challenging course

I heard about this course for a long time but haven't taken any action to drive 1.5 hour to play there until I took a day off on 7/12 to play this course and the other nearby great course back to back. I am totally glad for what I did on 7/12. Sandhill is great! It's short but challenging. I played from the back tee. The tee shot is critical. You have to think where and how to fire your tee shot almost on every hole. When looking out from the back tee, a lot of holes intimidate you. The tee shot openings are very narrow. It's a very unforgiving course especially when you play from the back tee. It's fun and I am glad to take that long drive.

Many dogleg holes, ware area carries to challenge driving accuracy.

The course itself was in very good condition except for some sand on several greens. There is some construction renovation going on involving concrete trucks but it was being managed very well and didn’t interfere with play. There was a young family of four in front of my threesome that slowed our pace of play to some degree and probably should’ve been told to let us play through by the Ranger but since it’s off-season, and I am a family man myself, it was nice to see mom and dad introducing their two children to the game of golf!

Enjoyable round...

Great layout for a shortish course. Conditions were excellent despite all the rain we have been receiving. In my regular rotation.
