Fun little course

This is a fun short course, or a big executive course. Playing with my wife who is not a big hitter is really works for us. Staff was very friendly and easy to work with. Carts were clean and ready to go. The course was not crowded so the pace of play was excellent, 2.25 hours for 18 holes. Greens were in good shape with some showing spots of crabgrass. Fairways were fine and the rough could have used a mowing but not bad. Tees were ok with some being a little thin on grass.
The price is right and the course has some variety so we will play it again.

Wet Course

With all the rain in S. Fl the course had quite a few wet areas. Fairway have seen no weed control and the rough is in need on mowing. Greens were in good shape but slow....Great staff and pace of play. You get what you pay for. Perfect for developing players.

Decent value

Tee boxes were rough, fairways were decent and greens were nice. Fairly simple course in my opinion. No sand traps and a few water hazards. Decent value overall.

Surprisingly Busy!

Got to course early went to driving range as a large women’s group was in the process of going out! I was able to start about 20 minutes ahead of my scheduled time but it was a tough slog. By the third hole I caught up with the group and was it ever slow. Fortunately the group was only playing 9 holes. When I made the turn it was clear sailing, for 2 holes, until I ran into another woman’s group ahead of me. From 12 to 18 it was backed up. I really couldn’t get a rhythm going and my score showed it!!

However I did enjoy the day; warm with light breeze. Course is starting to show the lack of rain.

I was pleased to see that ownership is taking the coronavirus seriously. All carts are sanitized between users. Carts were plentiful, so you didn’t have to share a cart, if you wished!? No ball cleaners are available and no water available in the course. The ice, cups, straws and water are available at the Clubhouse. I like that they used noodles to block the holes, even though the pin was in the cup. When you putted the ball could not fall into the cup and you could pick it up without any contact!!

Good Job, keeping your golfers safe!! I’ll be back!!

Antivirus friendly

This course has taken extreme measures to protect players from contacting surfaces that could possibly be contaminated.
They have done so in a way that does not hinder or cause loss of enjoyment in playing the great game of golf.

Social Distancing and a Gorgeous Day

I appreciated the fact that the ownership had a big sign on its door that the carts were being thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between every use. I had my “own corona cart” and rode alone!! All players seemed happy to be outdoors and having a great time on a gorgeous day!!

When I first arrived, the course was fairly quiet for the first 4 holes. Then we caught up with groups! Pace of play was perfect. By the time I finished the course it was quite active!!

Played pretty well, had a good time and made a 65’ putt from above the hole on 15......that made my day!!

I’ll be back!!

New Best Round at The Shores of North River

Thanks to Mother Nature there was very little wind, which I credit partly for my score today!! It was my new best result at North River.

I got out early, played by myself, was not rushed and really could concentrate on every shot!!! It worked!!

Now I have a new challenge to continue to improve!!

Weather was excellent, course was a excellent condition and I had my best tee shot in fairways and skid my lowest putting number ever, just under 2 putts per hole.

I will be back to challenge today’s result!!

See you A round!!

Not impressed

The pace of play was the slowest I’ve ever played. It’s ridiculous that they allow people to play that slow. The course is poor at best. It was my first time playing there and probably my last.

A Great Value!

My friends and I are beginners and usually chose to golf at The Shores. For the price, it's tough to beat. The course is far from pristine, yet we always have a fun time. There are no bunkers, no par-5's, and the layout is a little funky in places. That said, the staff is incredibly friendly, no one gives you a hard time, and since the course is fairly easy, It really builds my confidence as a golfer! Overall, I recommend golfing here if you want a fun, casual, and cheap day out on the course.
