Not what I thought

I recently played this Davis Love designed course for a tournament and let me tell you, it was not what I expected at all. I arrived at the gated community and thought this place has got to be nice looking at all the gorgeous houses and security guard at the main entrance. Once I got on the course the fairways were dead and brown, it really felt like you hitting off of dirt as there really wasn't much grass at all. This course demands that you hit your drives straight, it is riddled with houses and the white stakes that line the course near those houses seem to be right off of the cart path. This gives you no room to miss at all. The greens were pretty decent minus the fact that no one seems to ever repair their ball marks. All in all I will say that I will not be back to play this course anytime soon, I have better playing conditions at my local municipal golf course for half the price.

UNIMPRESSED & OVERPRICED

Just not that great!! Greens were decent rest of course was just OK. After reading reviews I expected a lot better course layout. It was decent, but it felt like homes were close to fairways on most holes. Not worth the $40 rate they are currently charging.

Staff was very indifferent! Starter didn't say a word to me, had to track him down to ask for scorecard since I was walking. He still didn't say more then 2 words to me.

Won't be heading back to Anderson Creek.

Very Long, Decent Course

I played from the back tees and i was looked at multiple times like i was a complete moron. The course is 7,200 from the back which is normal from where i am from. But the course is pretty doable. Anyway, we spoke to some members who while telling us we were crazy for playing the back, updated us on the course. They said Davis Love was no longer involved and that the course had gone way down hill in recent years. They were right. I had been told about this course for a couple months, that it was the hidden jem around here. Well it was pretty untrue. Course fairways were pretty rough, greens weren't great and bunkers were over grown and grass was all around them. Many places were hard to find the distance to the green too. If you play from the back have fun on the par 3s. I played them well but they are long. We paid $35. Thats iffy for this place. Should be $25-30 max. Plenty of nicer courses on golf now for the $35 range that i would rather play. Holes 14-18 are great and you can tell were very well designed. Could be a great course. Members out here are drinking beer and betting on holes. We luckily got stuck behind 5 Five some of drinking members coming out of the bar. All were pretty poor golfers and slow as humanly possible. We played 18 holes in 6 hours and 35 minutes. So have fun with that part of it, they also don't take care of the course at all. Divots are everywhere and the greens have divots literally covering the whole green. I probably repaired 50.

Hidden Gem

This DL3 design is a hidden gem nestled in the woods. Great holes which plays over 7200 from the tips, with some long holes on the back. Play the right tees for your length, and you will enjoy this great golf course.

Disappointing

After a day with not a spectacular amount of rainfall, the course was extremely muddy and mushy. Bunkers were horrible, staff in the snack bar were rude at the turn.

Just a bad experience.

Awesome Course-Great Challenge

WOW...this course is spectacular! I highly recommend it to any golfer looking for a fun time, on a great course that's in really good shape. Make sure you play from the right tees for your game, or you will get beat up.

Course conditions were thin

There were thin and burned out areas. Conditions only average. Course complexity was good (difficult for me). Greens are large and multi-level.

tobacco road hidden gem

played ac while fairways were still dormant; would love to play course later in the season; greens were recently punched and had not fully recovered so putting was a challenge; please tell singles that they cannot play through, especially when the course is backed-up; otherwise the wife and I had a wonderful time.

Large deep bunkers

Greens had been punched a month ago but the growing conditions did not help them grow in. Tough putting as they were fast and undulating but did not roll true. Would be challenging when in good condition. Ladies in the group found the bunkers quite difficult . Quite a hilly course which was not enjoyed by all , I however loved the layout.

Great layout

This is a true golfer's course. Meaning, the layout is challenging and makes you think and make decisions. Lots of bunkered corners to tempt you to try and carry. Greens have plenty of undulations. Biggest disappointment was that we played it in the middle of March so all the bermuda was dormant and you were basically hitting off mud. Would have been much nicer if they had over seeded the fairways with rye. Also, the greens had been aerated and sanded. I would love to play this course in the prime season.

kit em straight

Not a course for the 'duffer.'. Keep it in the fairways and you're OK, spray the ball and you'll pay the price. Lots of sand and a little water. Enjoy!

Quick greens

The course will challenge even the best of golfers! It certainly will challenge your ability to read greens. You have to play some holes by running the ball up onto the putting surface, but good luck at getting it to stop. One of my favorite courses.
