Great course

Most tee-boxes, fairways, greens, and traps were in great shape. The greens held and were fast and smooth (except for ballmarks some people didn’t repair). Although a few greens had some large dead spots. We just moved our ball over to avoid them. Traps had good sand in them, but we had to rake some of them and place our ball. Always loved the layout with a lot of variety in the hole designs.

Nice layout

Nice track / could use more maintenance. Cancerous brown spots on the greens today but an otherwise beautiful place to swing the club! Bunkers had weeds - if unplayable, it should be marked as such (see image). Loads of potential to be great!

Snail slow

The pace of play at this course is awful! They make you play in a 4-some and it takes forever as a result. It’s a pretentious course...it’s a city course that makes like a destination resort course. There are no yardage makers because they want you to buy the book. Lastly...for how nice they THINK this course is...it isn’t. There are divots all over the fairways. The greens are in poor shape. And...the bunkers need sand. On the plus side...it’s a pretty course. Nice layout and scenery. Ever now and then that is worth the glacial pace of play and average condition.

Hello, efaustinin. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round.

With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve, and we are working to get our greens and fairways back in good shape. We are glad to see you rated the course layout and scenery to be great during your game. Thank you for playing The Fort Golf Resort. We hope to see you again soon.

Slow Play

4 Hours and 40 minutes. Saw 3 rangers and no one did anything. The course is tight in spots heavy trees on both sides. Players constantly looking for balls, the rangers know which holes are the culprits and should set up so they can assist in groups finding their balls so play keeps moving. Instead driving around cart paths smiling and saying have a great day.

Great Layout

I try to play The Fort once or twice a year. It is a really enjoyable layout and the course is typically in good shape. The holes are memorable. There are plenty of tee options depending upon your skill level.

This unfortunately was a five hour round with a wait on every tee. I did see a ranger a few times, but the round didn't speed up much. Only other feedback is the greens usually are soft, so plenty of ball marks. With that being said, the greens rolled very well. I will be back and encourage others to check it out.

You go play this course

This round started with heavy rain, but by hole 3, the rain went away and I was able to enjoy this round with my Father. This course requires good course management when playing shots, which feels like on every shot. Course layout is great, greens are fair, and staff is wonderful. This course will challenge your skills - go enjoy!

The Fort 5 16 2019

Played here with a buddy that hadnt played this course before. Check in was smooth. The starter was a great guy and we had a nice conversation. The course was in great shape fairways and greens but the bunkers were a little sloppy really really fine sand (nitpicky I know) but there was grass clippings off the fairways and it made for a tough time finding wayward balls. Over all this was a great day on the course and I would certainly recommend this course to all golfers.

Played as a twosome

Zipped around as a twosome being courteously waved through by five groups, fast greens and heavy rough rewarded accuracy. Sometimes this place can be snooty, like they think they are St. Andrews, but didn’t get that this time. Great round.
