It is a nice course. The layout is fun and not very hard to play except for a lot of limbs that have grown over the years and hanging over the course that need to be cut back.there are a couple par 3 greens you can only hit half of because of it. There are almost no ball washers or sand in the bunkers but fairways and greens are nice and full. The staff is very friendly and they have a nice golfer friendly atmosphere. Grab a cart and have fun.

Course has a decent layout. Some easy some hard holes. Nice course for beginners to learn on. Nice greens. Fairways and tee boxed need plenty of work. Too many bare spots in the fairways

I have played this course many times in the past 7 years, and, as they have improved every time since, this is the absolute best that the greens have been! There is currently construction underway at #9 tee, but otherwise, the course overall is in great shape! Will definitely be back!

Have to say, the greens were in excellent shape for late February. The warm days were starting make some of the "unwanted" grasses to start growing (especially in tee box areas) while the Bermuda fairways were still rather dormant. Time to get the mowers out for the tee boxes.

Course was in surprisingly good condition for mid-December. Fairways turning dormant. Leaf issues being addressed, although one leaf did cost me a par. Greens in good condition; recently dyed, but soft and true (except for an occasional leaf).

Fairways are in horrible shape, still dormant. Greens still in rough shape. Cart paths are the worst ever, and in horrible shape. One older gentleman in the pro shop was rude as possible, and did not like Golf Now players. Said we don't make a dime on you. Don't even consider using driving range. No tee times, just jump in and play. Pay no more that $12 and you will get your moneys worth.

Playing only a few days after the tropical storm (former Hurricane Irma), the course was in pretty good condition. Some sand traps were wet to downright flooded. Plenty of small limbs and leaves scattered on the edges and cart paths. The course lost several large trees, mostly oaks. Unfortunately, most of them were not in the ball's normal flight path...

This is one of my favorite local courses to play. Very wide open but one of the most difficult but extremely fair courses in the area. A great challenge for lower handicap golfers while also being an enjoyable experience for higher handicaps.

The course has lots of potential. The clubhouse staff doesn't seem like they want to be there. Grass growing in the paved cart path that could easily be sprayed. It doesn't look like Ike they own a weed trimmer or a leaf blower as they seem to cut as close as they can to signs and such and then leave the dead grass piled up on steps and other places.

The greens were soft and only a couple had dead spots in them but the played nice. The fairways were firm and also had some dead spots and some that were just Ga clay.

I got confused twice by the layout and found myself on the wrong fairway which was possibly my fault.

For the price it's well worth it. If the course were maintained a little better it could be a nice course.

For the money, this is a good course. Mowing this year needs to be continuous, which is better than drought conditions. Greens had been sanded recently presenting some challenges.
