Walkable and Fun Upscale Public Links Course

Nice playable, fair, yet challenging enough track with multiple sets of tees. Very good fairway conditioning, and greens are coming along rapidly after aeration 10-11 days ago. In another week or two they will be outstanding.

The course is very walkable, I highly recommend it since sometimes the carts can be on the older and bit more rundown side.

The driving range is ‘hit off grass’ on the weekends, a plus in my book. 4/5 and recommended.

Great layout but need maintenance

They changed layout a lot. Very challenging. But need little better maintenance. If the wind picks up it would be very difficult golf course. For the first timer, it’s hard to aim fairways from tee because it’s flat and wide open. Once aeration is done, green Weill be nice. I love this course.

Morning back 9 is a great value

The layout and conditions are excellent. Played the 7 am back 9 in 90 minutes on a Sunday and loved it.
Club up one for the heavy air that early in the morning.

Classic Links course! Overall a great value for a public course! Excellent practice facilities. Prevailing coastal wind can play havoc on your round! Forces you to use a variety ofclubs! Smooth true greens! Unfortunately due to drought no water on course so u can play out of hazard@

Beautiful day Beautiful round

U always get a breeze but today was just magnificent. Just enough to keep you cool and play on a course that was in great shape. Tee boxes, fairways to greens. All in excellent shape. Front 9 in 2 hrs. A little slower on the back but still not bad

A summertime jewel!

This course I well kept and nice & cool during the sweltering summer heat. The course will challenge your game giving you different angles and undulations. The box, fairways & greens are outstanding! I have yet to recommend this course to a friend or acquaintance who didn’t thank me. Give it a try, you’ll be back!
