Fun and challenging course
Good course and had some challenges but not too difficult. Very peaceful day.

Fairly Difficult course
Haven't played here in years, has changed significantly. Nice layout which requires lots of thought on Club selection. Very hilly,plenty of sand traps, and I would think fairly difficult for most average golfers. Not an easy course by any means. Enjoyed playing.
Hello. We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars. We hope you'll give us another try in the near future. Thanks for choosing Smoke Rise.
Hello. Thank you so much for the review. We are glad you had an incredible time and hope to see you again soon!
The high was 59 degrees and it rained the day before, but surprisingly the course wasn't muddy really. Finished the round in 3.5 hours. Been here plenty of times and it's fun every time.
Hi Jorge. We appreciate you leaving a review and rating us. We will inform the entire team, so they know their hard work is paying off. We look forward to having you back!
Enjoyed my round here today. Start was great and on time. Course was in good shape and each hole had its challenges. 2nd time playing here and enjoyed it both times.
First time playing at this course in almost 2 years. As a former Canongate employee, I tried to play Smokerise at least once a month. The layout makes you think and the greens were always worth the hour drive.
Saturday was a joke. We waited almost 5 minutes for a cart to be brought out. Our tee time was 10:00 a.m. and we didn’t tee off until almost 10:20. We were waiting minutes on each shot and even longer on the par 3s. We didn’t see an on course ranger at all. There’s absolutely no reason why they should’ve been that far behind that early in the morning and they were unwilling to make groups speed up.
On top of a 5.5 hour round, tee box markers hadn’t been moved, were only 3-4 paces part, and most weren’t even aimed towards the fairway or green. There was standing water in most of the bunkers, (despite not having rained in 2-3 days), and maybe a handful had been raked.
The clubhouse still hasn’t been repaired from a leak a couple of years ago and there’s almost nothing in the golf shop as far as golf balls or equipment.
This course used to be a lot of fun to play, and you could play a round and not see another group. Now, it’s not worth the drive or the money.
A Happy Rainy Day
I arrived at the course and only 4 cars in parking lot. I showed up and only one other group on course. It was great. Cart path only due to Hurricane MIchael, but enjoyed the day.
This is a shot makers course with several par 5's reachable in two. Accuracy, accuracy is the key. Would love to play it again with dry conditions. Great layout and the one staff guy was great.
Overall, great value. Staff always friendly.
This is a tight course Makes you play smart golf. Great conditions.
All in all a good course. ALL the bunkers were hard pan. Hasn’t been any sand in them for a while. Not what I was expecting. Nice fairways. To get that championship Bermuda where it putts like bent grass takes a lot attention and knowledge. They were inconsistent. Some much faster than others. They look beautiful but hard for a scratch golfer to shoot a low score. When we finally found the bar for a drink at the turn, at first those folks seemed bothered by our presence then responded well. They only had a couple of Gatorades they said their truck hadn’t run. It looks like it was a jam up place back in the day...
After three frustrating years of trying to master this challenging course, I finally broke 90 today for the first time. The course is in good condition the greens are always true and it's a excellent test of golfing skills.
Pace of Play Terrible
3 and 1/2 hours to play 11 holes. Worse pace of play I have experienced. To add insult to injury it rain so left after we played 11 holes since it would have been a six hour round. This was on Friday so I could imagine a weekend round. I would only recommend this course if they had a Marshall on the course. Did not see one during the round.
Not a Resort Course
Nice location. Beautiful setting. If you're out for a leisurely round of golf, this may not be your best choice. Tough layout, lots of blind shots, lost balls. Accustomed to resort type flatter courses...this is not that.
