SLOW PACE OF PLAY

No marshall,groups infront hitting several shots per person and no golf course etiquette or Marshall's to regulate the pace of play. I will not come back.

Good

The grass need to be cut there location where u should be able to find ur Ball! And certain places where we should get some type of Roll. But because the grass is Higher then Ave.! But we also must take the bad with the Good the Hight grass can save u something from rolling N the water lol. That's My Only Complaint! It's a gorgeous layout! I will definitely play it Again The Gold TB is a lot Move forgiveness.

Overpriced

Waste of $50. Weeds all around the greens. Slowest greens I have ever seen in my life. If you golf a decent amount you will regret coming here I promise.

Needs improvement.

First I had a hot deal tee time from GolfNow, so I only paid $35 bucks. Normal weekend rates are like $60.
First impression around pro shop looked great. Once on course not so much! Tee boxes were not bad but not good either. Sand traps were terrible, had not been raked, some still had standing water in them even though it hadn't rained in about a week. Very disappointed in that regard. Rough's were overgrown and difficult to find your balls on errand shots. Keep it in the middle and your good!

Not bad. Fun Layout

First time playing here. Course was in decent shape with all the rain that came through last week. Staff was friendly and let me start the round a little early. Only issues were bunkers not kept and a few greens had some patches of crab grass.

Good place to play

after reading the reveiws, was expecting very tight fairways, but was much better than anticipated.
Staff was friendly, carts were in good shape (no GPS). Driving range left a little to be desired, no yardage markers, but think the balls are the ones that don't fly full length, but could be wrong, but no turf, so got in a good warmup regardless.

The tee boxes were all in good shape, the fairway was good and houses weren't lined up right off the fairway, for once didn't lose any balls when straying left or right. Greens were in above average shape, thought some weeds growing in and around the green that offered some challenges (my only complaint). Overall course design, long and good number of dog legs and even a couple of holes that required some layups and planning. Overall, good day and will add to the rotation.

Golf at Margaritaville-La Toretta

Staff was friendly, check in was quick, practice green was great. Course was great overall, not much to complain about. No marshal though to help speed up the game for some slow groups, but not horribly bad - ended up skipping a hole to get our group of 3 moving and finishing in less than 5 hrs.

Enjoyable

I've been playing Margaritaville (previously La Torretta) for a couple of years now. The course is in good shape - fairways and greens are well maintained and play fair. The pace was slow as there were a couple of 5-somes in front of my group of three. I think it's to be expected on the weekends now that the resort is up and running. The price tag at $60-65 is a little high, but so long as the course is maintained at its current state and the resort stays open, it's not terrible value.

Course was in good shape considerig the weather. The best part was was roll on the greens.....very true, good pace, and they would hold approach shots from all clubs. Play is 3.5 hours.
