Freedom

The weather is hot and humid but don't let that stop you from golfing. Greens roll awesome, no waiting since everyone chickens out when it gets hot. Only took 3 hours to finish . Definitely going back again.

The Cove

Excellent layout and course conditions. True and fast greens. Liberal width of fairways but traps can be very demanding!
Great course.

Great Layout, Poor Greens

Overall I enjoyed my round at The Cove. If the greens and a couple of tee boxes were in better condition this would be a 5 star rating. The course is beautifully situated next to the lake and the signature par 3 over the cove of the lake, while difficult is a wonderful sight. The issue was that all the greens were covered in sand so much that putting for score was not possible. I still had a good time but basically played tee to green and had to move on.

Course to myself

I am a golfer with a disability. I have muscle stiffness and getting in and out of carts can make it worse. If I walk a course it helps me stay looser. I have a letter from my doctor that even explains this. This is a course that typically does not allow walking but they made an exception for me. To me that is a sign of good course management. It was cold when I played so no one was on the course. Very hilly and it was quite a workout to walk. I played terrible, outside the fairway on most tee shots. Fantastic views, course was in great condition even for late fall. Plenty of wildlife with a highlight of a buck trotting thru the fairway on the back nine. Highly recommended.

Great Golf Course

It's a lake course, so you will have to think about tee shot on most holes. Though not long from the tips, accuracy off the box is critical but once you get it in the fairway, the course can be beaten based on your handicap. The pro and staff are very friendly and even helped us play a 6 some for 9 with wives putting (we played a 2 ball scramble to move along quickly). This is a must course to play while in the area and the rates are great if aren't looking for "prime" tee times. By the way, I rated the course extremely challenging because I have to be better with my tee ball:)

Quality Lake Course

This RTJ design is great. No 2 holes are even close to the same. This course can challenge golfers of all handicaps. Condition was good even though it was recently punched. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We played in 3 1/2 hours which is a miracle for our group.

Great Course!

I recently played The Cove golf course at The Lodge of Four Seasons. The staff gave grade A service and was very nice. The course was in good shape, especially with the crazy weather that we have had this summer. The Cove had me guessing on every hole which made it fun and challenging. Hole #4 was awesome! Hitting over the cove about 200 yards and making the green was one of many highlights while playing this course. Pace of play was great, and will definitely play it again.
