Course review

Although it was pretty wet from all the rain as of late, the course was in nice shape. Great layout.

Challenging, but fair

A hidden gem. Greens are very true, but a fairly tight venue for many of the drives. Difficult, long par threes on the front 9. Worth the trip....

Worth playing

The layout of the course was challenging and nice. The only problem was the pace of play was slow.

Redo

The redo is my review of this course last week. Great, except for the greenside bunkers which need more sand

Great but

This course is outstanding. The layout is excellent with very different holes. The greens and fairways are also in excellent condition. The layout presents a good challenge also. The only drawback is that the sand in some of the greenside bunkers is way to thin and hard making sand shots more difficult than they should be. Overall, a very enjoyable experience due to the good price offered on golfnow.

Fun Fun Fun

This track was a lot of fun because it’s not a long course even from the blues. A lot of elevation changes big plus! Loved there greens, very big! Very fair rolling greens! I love courses that make you play straight. This to me is definitely a shot makers course. And course management. I left my driver in my bag except pat 5’s. Fired a 78 by birding 17, and 18. worth the Hot deal I paid. Was extremely hot here. No breeze on the course due to developments all around this course. Had water jugs out there on benches but completely Empty

Course worth the money.

Played on a Monday...very few golfers. Listened to reviews and brought own beverages because course doesn't have water on course or a beverage cart. Should also bring own snacks/sandwiches because they only have chips and granola bars at turn. Tee boxes and greens in great shape. However tee boxes need to be rolled or something...hard to find a flat spot. Area feels like you're in Hilton Head, SC...definitely worth the effort.

Very Well Kept Course

Unfortunately a very windy day so my game was not the best. First time playing the course and I'm not a fan of courses that traverse in and around homes that you have to be very careful about if you don't shoot completely straight. The course conditions were superb and the greens were fast, but what I don't understand is why courses like that this that sell memberships don't invest in GPS. For someone playing for the first time I was shooting blind not knowing the hazards on the course especially when it comes to water and it would have been nice to have some direction as to were to place your ball on some holes that have severe slopes. It was not fun to find that you hit a great drive only to find out that it was in water.. I guess if you're a member only you may know the course, but yardage from spots on the course would be helpful. For as much as they charge especially if opening it up to the public would be nice to attract more golfers. Other than that it was a very nice kept course and the greens rolled true

There's not a hole on the course, where if you hit a good drive, it might end up in the water. Also, there's not water that you can't see from the tee prior to any drive - maybe on 17, but you'd have to hit the ball over 300 yards to reach it.
