Started to play this course fairly often because it’s close to my house. Normally don’t have any problems, but today 4 grounds crew members decided to just sit on 13 green. Went up to the tee box, and no one moved so I just went on. Had no sense of urgency to move, especially when they all watch me tee off on the next hole. Was very frustrating.

Watery Day

Very beautiful course. The greens were fantastic, the overall condition of the course was excellent and the service was fantastic. However 18 holes and water in play on 18 of them, I played from the Blues at 6,400 yds and it was hard. Next time I'll play the whites and will probably enjoy it more at 6,000 yds. If you play pick the right tees.

Greens were recently punched but were rolling good. Fairways were beginning to green up from the winter. Fun track with lots of water. Can’t wait to play it again.

Great challenge

The course was in fair shape. It possess high greens surrounding by water everywhere. Every hole presents water on either side of the greens. The par 3's were long and are welcome with water overlooking it. The course is a ball placement course. The green had holes in differcult locations. The wind push the game into a tougher and harsh conditions but you were rewarded with good shots! I really enjoy the challenging course. I can't wait to return soon!

Very fun golf course

This may be the only course left in the mid-south with bent grass greens. They are in great condition. Just wish golfers today would take a few minutes and learn how to properly repair ball marks on the green ( and this is not limited to this course, most in the MEMPHIS area have marks that can be repaired). The fairways are in very good condition. Water galore and not for drinking. Be prepared to lose some balls especially if you're right handed and hit it left to right. The greens putt true and were slower than the champions Bermuda at other courses. Staff was great and friendly and helpful.

They do need someone who knows how to clean and take care of their golf carts. They are in rough condition with marks, dents and scratches all over. Half don't have windshields.

Challenging course

Greens and fairways really nice, greens kinda small though. Water hazards on almost every hole.
Long par 4s, had alot of fun
Hate that golf now requires 3 day advance on using rewards to book tee times

Really Nice Course Greens need work tho.

The course layout is amazingly challenging. Water is in play on almost every hole. Some of the par 4's you need to carry the ball 220yards into a strong wind. Greens were in bad shape. the bent grass need some serious work.

Tough demanding precise layout

If not a pretty accurate and consistent player would not recommend this course. Unless you have plenty of golf balls. Water is in play on every hole except for number 1. But if you hit an errant shot you can find the water on that hole also. The greens were nice, smooth firm and fast. You want to play with a member or regular player the first time. Some of the water hazards are not easily seen from the tee.
