Great day of golf

The course was in great shape compared to what I'm accustomed to. Fairways were great, greens even better. Didn't play great, but that's not the courses fault. Will definitely return in the future.

Condition nowhere near potential.

This course has the potential to be something special. Unfortunately, the poor or nonexistent drainage system won’t allow it. There are multiple eyesores around the course, and the greens are the roughest and most inconsistent of the many courses I have played so far this year. Those other courses have done a much better job of dealing with all of the rain we have received.

Swamp golf at its best!

This was my first time playing this course, and I should have waited for warmer and drier weather. The course was so wet it was unplayable in spots. The cart paths were deteriorating to the point where my cart bottomed out once on the cart path, and driving off the cart path was not an option. You often couldn't tell where the ponds ended and the casual water started. Because the course was too wet to mow, some of the rough just off the fairway was over a foot tall. The greens had just been aerated, making it even less enjoyable. I liked the layout and the slopes on the greens. The course will certainly be enjoyable and challenging once the it recovers.

Very long...

Played course for first time in late August-- it was ok.
Very long course, especially if damp & rough hasn't been cut (we had both when we played). Course is not very well marked with yardages. Lots of similar holes, so a lot of the same length shots into greens. Would recommend a "hybrid" scorecard incorporating some holes from white & blue tees, since there's 1000 yard difference between them. Hole 4 is a great long par 5.
All in all an ok course/layout. 5 out of 10 rating, would play again when in the area
