The fairways and greens are in fabulous shape. The pace of play was very nice even though the course was fairly crowded for a Friday. There is a constant small head wind due to the ocean breeze but very manageable. Staff was very friendly but the clubhouse could definitely use an upgrade. There is only a small trailer with some snacks and drinks. Overall the course was a lot of fun to play and in great shape.

This is one of my favorite courses in the area. Challenging without making you feel like you need more lessons after the round. Course is always in good to great condition. Fun course. And a great walking course if you want the exercise. It’s pretty flat so you won’t exhaust yourself. I’ll continue to play here a dozen or more times a year.

Played with my son and wife at 3 different sets of tees. We were in carts but lots of walkers on the course. This facility has a driving range, sand trap area, practice putting green all in great shape. This course provides plenty of challenge to any level golfer especially when the wind is blowing and that’s often. Not unusual for gust to hit 15 mph. The back 9 by far is the most difficult with plenty of green side and fairway bunkers. I was at 38 on front nine and finished with 91 after two deep bunkers. Be prepared to be challenged.

One of the best quality courses in the tri-County.

Greens are as challenging as any pro -grade track.

Played this course since it opened, and hope to continue for years to come, if kept in similar condition.

Played on Saturday, beautiful day, always a little windy sometimes 1 club sometimes 2.

Course is in fabulous shape, greens were fast and true, fairways and tee boxes were well manicured.

All in all one of the better tracks and Michelle is a doll.

Paid a great price to play an above-average course. But neither the booking website nor the course website nor the pro shop indicated that the greens had recently been punched, which was quite disappointing.
