I'm a member at Wild Turkey Trace and my high school golf team had practice there everyday, so I'm really familiar with the course. It's not the most difficult course ever but if you're looking for a fun and relaxing round of golf, you've found the right place! The fairways have been a little rough lately but as long as you don't go into your round expecting a PGA tour quality course you won't be disappointed.

On the first hole I thought I had wasted my money, but it got a lot better starting on #2. The yardage of the holes fits the average player, I will play their AGAIN.

Fairly open fairways (a.k.a., almost treeless) helped my wife and I stay out of trouble... for the most part. Fairways were cut short, fringe and rough were playable, but like most courses bunkers were hard because of recent rains. Cart paths need more gravel or paving. Only two holes presented challenging water hazards. A few tee areas were not well marked which sent us hunting after finishing a hole. Better signage would help guide a newbie.

Although we were scheduled to tee off at 1 a charity scramble delayed us briefly while a twosome asked to finish out their last 3 holes. After that we moved right along.

Course was perfect for our length of play and driving distance from the white and red tees, which made our scores comparable to other Par 71's we've played.

Overall, a pleasant day of golf.

Played this course on June 12th and found it to be a fun little course. Being our first time on this particular course we had to fumble our way around a little bit from hole to hole as we were unfamiliar and that can be a problem sometimes. On one hole we were headed for what we thought was our green only to find it took a sharp right turn in an unexpected direction. Would be nice to play again now that we know the course a little bit. The course has some pretty fun holes and there is also some beauty to the course but it's pretty short too. Biggest problem right now is that the Bermuda fairways were hurt badly by the severe winter we had this year leaving some bare spots and/or dried out grass. I see no way it will get better this season but you can see it would be a fun course to play now and then if they get it back in shape. Played at a discount rate from the internet this time so felt we got our money's worth and had a good time but wouldn't play here if I had to pay full price, not under the current conditions. One other negative is that they allow smoking in the clubhouse and if you don't like that (I hate it) you won't want to spend much time in there.

I used to play there once every week or two but for some reason, this year I've only been able to play it twice all year. They have this place ROCKING! It's clean, well manicured, and the greens are extra nice for a public course, I just love it.<br/> If you haven't played here before do yourself a favor and go, you will be glad you did. And, if you're lucky enough to get a GolfNow value priced tee time, that's a real NO-BRAINER, you have to go!

Play weekly. course is in its best condition in many years. The greens are excellent, fairways are great for Bermuda and bunkers are well kept and very playable. Would recommend playing.

The greens were not in good condition for such an early tee time, but it may have been due to the rain the day & night before and may have been too wet to safely work on them. The course drainage could be better. All the bunkers had several inches of water. Since I am by far a good golfer and play often, it was good for me, but if you were playing a competitive round, not so good.

The course is going through some early fall maintenance at this time with the aeration of the greens. At the time I played on 8/19/13, only one hole out of play.

I played on July 28, and the weather was perfect. The golf course was pretty pathetic. The fairway grass was as long as the rough cut at many courses. The greens were like a shag carpet, approximately the length of a fairway cut. The layout is cramped and not terribly interesting. You will likely encounter some very slow players and a few balls sliced over your head from adjoining fairways or teeboxes.

I would not want to return to this course, even if I got a free round.
