play here a lot

This is a short and relatively easy course if you can hit accurate shots. There is water on 15 of the holes, three of which you have to fly over. Greens are small and somewhat domed, so hard to land on and stay. I live about 20 minutes away and play here about every month...usually shooting in the lower 90's. If you are a big time driver you probably won't like this course but if just a regular player...I'd say it is worth trying. A big point for me is you can bring outside beverages.

Downhill

Played this course last year 3 times between January and March. We thought this was a great find for golfers an a limited budget. The fairways were pretty good and the greens were in great shape. This year the fairways were lacking water. Half the greens were in poor shape. I would say they will lose those greens if not given immediate care. I know what i’m talking about having worked on a golf course for the last 20 years. Also there golf carts are in terrible shape. I was given a choice of 5 carts. I chose the best one and it had holes as big as softballs and cigar burns. Be careful if you get there at the wrong time you will not get a cart. At the turn two foursomes were waiting for other golfers to quit.

Pleasantly surprised!

First time playing. Chose course because it was a Hot Deals special on Golfnow.com. Located within a manufactured home (55) community. Course was cut nicely and fairly open. Lots of canals bordering the fairways, but not too difficult. Greens were in very good condition. Wide fairways.

Course is a bargain for the price. Would recommend.

Not great

The greens were long and slow. The carts had ripped seats and felt wobbly.

Very old golf carrs

The golf carts are very old and kn need of repairs we tried three before we got one to use and it was in need of under gear repairs. The fairways were in good shape but the greens needed extra work and grass mowings around the greens interfered with chip shots.

Pleasant workers.

Between the rain drops

This course doesn't drain well. With all the rain it is par for this course. I took the chance that it was dry, but it wasn't. So call first to find out about the course conditions in regard to rain. Otherwise I had a great time.

Boats and Holes

I like this golf course but it does not drain well, which made playing difficult. I felt if I had a boat instead of a cart I would have made less holes on the course.

I'll be back when the course is dry. This is an inherent condition to the course environment not the fault of management and maintenance.

I recommend this course when it's dry.

I play Fairways often

This is a nice course with good greens. Most of the holes are fairly short with 6 par threes. There is water on 15 of the holes and accuracy is very critical to good scoring.

Due to all the recent rain, I would not recommend playing before we get a few dry days.

Outside beverages are allowed...a big plus for me.

Golf on a Pond

Probably should have asked for rain check. Many fairways under water....grass very high in a lot of areas and could not locate balls sometimes in fairway. Also so wet, balls were plugging and hard to find. Weird that the greens were pretty good. Had to stay on cart path, which I totally understand, but got more exercise than planned. Hope course will keep cart path rule for a few days at least or the course will be heavily damaged. Excuse me while I dry off {:

Thank you for playing Fairways Golf Club and providing us with feedback regarding you experience. We certainly understand your frustration regarding the wet conditions as it frustrates us as well. As you noted, our greens are in great shape and we are very proud of them. As we are with the entire course, when the conditions are dry. Thanks again for the great feedback, and we hope to see you back out at the course under dryer conditions.

Fantastic Greens / Solid Course

Yes, this course winds it's way through a community of (well-kept) manufactured homes. This said, it's clear that residents love their course. The tee boxes, fairways and rough are in in decent shape. The greens are excellent and CHALLENGING. Lots of undulations, fast, and generally fun. For to price, this course is a great deal. This is reasonably challenging for a beginner to intermediate golfer. Water is rarely in play, and it's wide open...but practice your putting before you head out!

Goat ranch

I selected this course based upon positive reviews. I don't know what course they played but this is a goat ranch with 25 year old carts lined by double-wide trailers.. If that's what you're looking for play here.

Fun course

We had a great time. Excellent staff, and the course was in good shape. Course is tight, but not as tight as some of the other reviews would lead you to believe. First timers should study the hole maps on the scorecard because some of the water hazards are not clearly visible. We will be back for sure.

Short course

This course has been well taken care of. Played in February and greens and fairways were very good. Course is tough

because of tight fairways and water on most fairways.
