Nice course

I thought the layouts were nice, the rough a little thick and challenging the greens very fast and hard to read. It's not a negative. I think a few more times on the course the greens might be a little more readable and club selection will be a little more on target.
For sure a nice course. They actually had a cart girl out there very nice friendly and she made several trips so we didn't see her once and gone we saw her four or five times. I will definitely Be back.

Nice

I have played these courses multiple times and have found no flaws. Fairways are soft and the greens are tricky. First cut is challenging and the deeper rough is impossible. Just enough hazards to make the course tough for an average golfer.

Poor Design

Completely flat course with large areas of tall weeds right next to the fairways. You will lose lots of balls even on good shots. The water hazards are all swamp. The layout snakes vack and forth with no thought to design. The fairways and greens are well kept.

Pretty harsh comments, yes the fairways are flat but a poor decision or an errant drive makes the second shot challenging. Trees, sand and second cut make the course difficult for a bogey golfer. However if you can get it in the fairway the course plays remarkable

Nice course

Apparently there was miscommunication between a Golf Now and the course. Reservation was for 18 and a cart but the course stated it was only 9. The staff is always great there and after 9 we asked to play another 9 and were allowed. Course was in great shape as always and the greens were challenging again.

My Experience of golf course

Played their on Sunday and played the 18 hole course. I must say course was in descent shape and not too bad of a place to play. There are a few challenging holes. I must say they need need to update the golf carts in a serious way. Also being in a pandemic, golf carts needed to be cleaned. Also went to men's bathroom inside clubhouse and the urinal's and sinks you could tell haven't been cleaned in days if not longer. If you want people to visit your course spend a few bucks and keep it up.
