The course was in great condition. The greens and fairways are outstanding. The rough is thick, but fair. You get to use every club in the bag on the course. We played Red to White and had a great time and challenge. You will lose a few balls on stray shots in water and hay... Will definitely play again. Great layout and staff was good too.

Played the red/white courses, both had some interesting holes and some risk reward holes, some blind tee shots for me since I didn't know the course layout. Green were really bumpy, I had a few balls jump off line because the greens were so beat up. Players really need to learn how to fix a digit correctly, I seen so many digits that were butchered and this just causes more damage to the greens. For the most part I enjoyed my round!

Tee boxes and fairways were in excellent conditions. The greens were fast, but showed a lot of wear from unrepaired ball and spike marks, probably mostly caused by neglect from golfers not doing their part to keep the greens in as good a shape as they found them. The sand in several of the bunkers felt hard packed, but you could play out of them. Due to the layout of the course there are a few holes where the distance between green and the next tee is excessively long. I could see about a 5 minute walk between green and tee on a few of them. Glad I had a powered cart. Also for a public course I thought the rough was not cut low enough. Our group lost several golf balls in the rough just off the fairways. It slowed our play down as a result of spending too much time trying to find balls. The staff including the rangers were all friendly. No problem there whatsoever. No GPS in the carts and only some yard markings on the course, including 150 yard posts on all the par 4's and 5s and a few yardages shown on some sprinkler heads. Glad I had a Bushnell GPS device in my pocket. There were at least 4 tee box options so you could play at an overall yardage that would suit your abilities. Other than finding only porta-potties at the turn, the amenities at the clubhouse seemed fine, along with a halfway house for a hot dog or whatever. Not that it matters, but I don't recall seeing a beverage cart come around while we played. Not sure I would want to pay full price to play this course, but for a golfnow hot deal it was fine.

Overall the course is very well maintained with really nice fairways. Grasses were all the proper length and most of the traps were in pretty decent shape. Greens were fairly smooth except we played in the later afternoon behind a bunch of extremely slow groups who didn't pick up their feet well around the cups. Despite starting out almost a 1/2 hour behind them our round took close to 5 hours....unacceptable and again it was the typical idiots playing the wrong tees taking 3 or 4 shots just to reach the green on a par 3! The fine conditioning of the course somewhat made up for that. The course can be tight in some areas with the housing but it plays fair and provides a reasonable challenge and more so when it's windy. A fairly flat somewhat "contrived" design but an enjoyable play at least one or twice a year. Also a good value because you can usually get on it if you plan properly for $30 give or take. Driving range with separate chipping green, sand practice area and putting green as pluses. Dated locker room with showers. Decent food beverage post round. Anticipate a solid 4 star experience but likely a 5 hour plus round on weekends mainly due to the white nine finishing holes. Recommended.

I like this course. I like to play here. It's always in good shape, and on this day, surprisingly good given the terrible storms the day prior. There was some standing water, and an occasional flooded trap, but much less than expected.

But the pace of play was horrendous. Five and one half hours for a round that started at 11:30 am. And no one seemed to be out on the course to determine why, or to push people along.

That said, it was an anomaly for this course, and it won't keep me from coming back.

9 am tee time on a Sunday. At 3rd hole, had to wait, then proceeded to wait about 10 more times during the round for the group in front of us. The course was extremely wet.

Aerated Greens are quite annoying!!! Putting is at least 1/3 of your strokes every round. It's no fun when you can't control that portion of your round! This is 2 rounds in a row that I booked with Golf Now that have had Aerated greens. I'm not happy...

We had a great experience playing golf at Carillon and the weather was perfect. Really like this course as it is perfect for the average golfer and still can be challenging to the low handicap golfer. Course is in great shape.

Choose Links of Carrolin because by far their course gas been in the best shape this year. We llayed it in January, February, and April. The greens have been excellent rolling pure. So guess our surprise when we approach the 1st green on the Red Course. Yup they were aerated.

Oh well it still was fun.
