Fun Course

Played this course after a few days of rain, and the conditions were surprisingly great! A couple of beautiful par 3 holes over water and wide open fairways on the front 9. Really allows you to bomb a driver. Very friendly service and really awesome practice area. Only complaint are the blind holes. There aren't any yardage guides or hole layouts at the tee boxes which forces you to kind of guess where the green actually is. Played 9 and 3 holes on the front 9 played that way. Also, greens were incredibly slow, but most likely had to do with the weather from the previous days.

Fun Course

Course was in great condition with great greens. Greens are difficult to read and rarely offer a straight flat putt. I like this course and will play many more times.

Always a great course....

I really appreciated the Golf Pro (serving as the Ranger) making several trips around to check on the pace of play.

Rarity bay

The course was in great shape. Greens where in excellent condition some of tee boxes need a little work, but other than that is what great. Tee time said it included range balls, but these where not provided and I didn't ask, so maybe this is my fault. Overall a great golfing experience

Due to rain the course was wet and the greens were aerated

Due to the rain, the course was wet and the greens were aerated. The person in the pro shop was friendly and helpful. The people playing behind us were very polite. The course is challenging and Very well taken care of. I look forward to playing here again.
