Slow Pace

This is a pretty challenging course with all the tree and water. I do like the course but if you plan on golfing there it’s a minimum of 5 hours. Today at hole 9 we were at 2hrs 45 mins and every hole had 2 4-man group waiting to tee off. I had to leave. Couldn’t stay there and have an 18 round turn out to 6 long hours of golf. Especially if you get in a grove with your swing you’ll definitely lose it waiting to tee off at next hole. I won’t be going back to this course.

Waters Edge - A refreshing course to play

This was my first time at Waters Edge and I really enjoyed the course layout. It had some difficulty but not to the point to where you were frustrated. The course has some forgiveness to it, which help you survive your usual array of bad shots. The tee areas were my only negative as the grass had been worn away and you were teeing up on dirt in spots. The rest of the course and the greens in particular were extremely well maintained. Pin placement were challenging as some of the greens were undulating so some putts were tough due to that. I plan to return as the course overall was a delight to play with some interesting layouts of the holes.

Awful pace.

This is normally a nice place to golf even when outings are going on. Today however the pace was awful and the ranger did nothing about it. It took 2.5 hrs to get from 9-13. There were 5 somes playing and they lost control of the course and we ended up quitting and there was no refund or any sort of sincere effort to make good on the clear negligence by the staff

Enjoyably place to play

This is a very enjoyable place to play. The course is challenging but fair and the staff are very friendly - all of them - starter, manager, shop, bar staff. Today we had some people cut in on us who ignored our complaints. We called the club and a ranger came out immediately to address the problematic people. The course pace had then settled down after the delay but the assistant manager then came out and gave us a complimentary round to compensate for our delay.

Ball placement course

I enjoyed playing waters edge. I felt like the layout requires that you place the ball in the right spot off the tee. I was a single and the Marshall paired me up with a couple of locals who were really cool. The entire staff I met were very nice and helpful. The course was in good shape even though you could tell it gets a lot of play. Great course for the money.

What a gem!

Living 20 minutes away, I didn’t even know this place existed. When I moved here a few years ago and asked neighbors for the best places to golf, no one mentioned Waters Edge. I will now...or maybe i’ll just keep this to myself. I was go.fing by myself and many of the patrons allowed me to play through, which was awesome.

By the way, if you want local knowledge of the course, visit the friendly starter a little early and he’ll give you some good pointers that probably saved me 5 strokes by listening to him.

Will be going back for sure!

Course was in great shape!

Enjoy playing Waters Edge. Always a challenge especially if you find yourself off the fairways. That rough can get thick. If you have never played this track you should definitely try it out.
