The coarse is laid out well and is fun to play but there is a lot that can be done to improve the overall experience. The cart path for the most part are in poor repair along with many of the stairs you need to use to get to the elivated tees. Many of the tee distance markers are unreadable and need to be updated. Other than that the course has a lot to offer, it is challenging without be being too overwhelming for a hacker like me.

I had a 12 pm tee time, booked thru Golfnow. I apparently was paired with another group of golfers, as I was a single. I was given my cart key and proceeded to the 1st teebox. I met a gentleman at the tee box and teed off at 12:03pm. As I parked my cart on the 1st fairway to begin to take my 2nd shot, the person,an older gentleman, that was at the proshop counter came down the fairway, in a cart and proceeded to yell at me for teeing off with the wrong group. He Immediately took my cart key and told me to walk the rest of the way. Not only was he rude, he offered no apologizes for any confusion or any offer to correct his mistake for his tee pairing, as the group I apparently was paired with, was not ready for the tee time and at the driving range and practice green. I should note that the course was empty, with no other groups within several holes. I will no longer do business at this course. I found out that the person at the proshop was 1/3 owner as I spoke to his sister, when I complained at the snack shed at the 9th hole turn. She was apologetic but the damage had been done. These folks lost out on a season membership that I was thinking of purchasing as well as a corporate outing that I was planning for. I will take my business elsewhere and will make certain that other golfers know and understand that the the owners of the course are not easy to deal with and not happy with Golfnow or anyone who books a tee time with golf now. A sad shame because Golfnow makes it convenient for folks who just dont have time to call in advance for tee time availability. Regardless of how you book or pay for your tee time, we are all paying customers and should be treated the same as anyone else who frequents the course.

nice coarse. Had to wait for an available time because GolfNow let us make a reservation while there was a tournament going on. Staff was very understanding. got to hit some practice balls while we waited two hours until we could get out. Then after 12 holes the rain came down and couldn't finish. If we started at our original tee time, I think we could have got in all 18.

More challenging than it's sister course, Charleston Pines, especially off the tee. Also, larger, more undulating greens, more forced carries, and well designed and positioned bunkers. Course was dry as most courses in this area have been this spring, so fairways were in great shape and the rough was not as high or as thick as when we have played it in early fall. Enjoyable course, but it would be a tough walk.

The Island Oaks course was in excellent condition. The greens were fast enough to be challenging by making you concentrate and committed on the line or you will miss on the edges as happened to me. Fairways were in great shape. It is a good enough challenge with very fair length holes, unless you are one of those who likes very wide fairways throughout so you can boom it. The course is worth a try for anyone enjoying a round with water, strategically placed bunkers, tough greens and narrow fairway challenges. Hit 'em good!

A short challenging course. Forgiving off of most tees. Sand traps placed around greens keep you sharp. Challenging par 3's and very true greens. Great price with Golf Now.
