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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

A very nice layout with plenty of water hazards and some tight fairways. The green are in good condition, putts faster than they look. You can score well on this course if you can hit straight.

This round was the best i have seen the greens. They have done a great job. The fairways are not the best but really bad lies are not frequent.

I played with my wife who seldom plays, myself a 22hc and a senior in college we met on the course. He was very good and could play mid seventies anywhere. This course was fun for all three of us. My wife had par opportunities when she made decent shots for her. We all were challenged but there are some 'easy' holes too.

Grab a hot dog after 9 and have fun!

The greens were like nice carpet today. They are rolling so reading a putt is a must and finding that break is challenging. Fairways are in decent shape overall and they have cleared a lot of brush since I played here a year ago. New ball washers are in place which is nice. The golf carts need to be replaced. Seats have tears, steering is a bit weird, brakes almost non existent. Not sure if they are making a go of this place or if it's slowly sinking and they can't afford to improve the carts. It's a bit of a challenge to play between all the houses but overall a fun course to play.

I don't hit long drives so this course, which is a bit short by some peoples standards, works for me.

There is water on almost every hole and the shot landing zones are tight. Not a course with extra wide fairways.

I have shot 81 and 110 here.....play it a couple of times a month...greens are good, fairways okay.

Try it out if you are in the area...wouldn't drive and hour for it though

The photos of the course must’ve been taken years ago as they did not depict the true course. The lakes were all very low and in need of cleaning. The fairways were bare and there wasn’t a restroom in sight. The carts are in need of major repairs as seats were tore and my cart felt like it was going to lose it’s tires. Will not be going back and may have to look elsewhere for better reviews before purchasing tee times again.

Tight fairways with densely packed houses surrounding the entire front 9, and most of the back 9. Do not play here if you battle a slice! If you are even the slightest bit inaccurate off the tee you WILL hit a house!

Course and greens were in good condition, and was a good value for the fee.

For a tight golf budget it’s challenging with lots of water hazards and narrow fairways. Don’t let the mobile home park atmosphere put you off, it’s a lot of fun once you’re out there!
