Terrible condition

The course was in terrible shape. The fairways looked like they hadn’t been mowed in months, the grass was so long it was like hitting out of the rough. The course was also soaked, incredibly muddy, and did not dry up a time all during the round. The fairways were wet and muddy everywhere. The tee boxes we’re totally beaten up. The greens were the only part in decent shape.

Somewhat disappointing

Always liked the layout and some really nice holes. However, the course conditions are not good. Many bare spots in fairways and around greens. Some bad areas on a few greens also. Heard there are new owners and hoping that they put some work into fixing up the course.

Worst golfing experience in a long while

Have played here a few times when it was 100% private. Course layout is tricky as there are a bunch of 180 yard shots on par 4's and 5's. But this was the worst! Staff is not very nice but who cares. It was so disorganized, no starter, no rangers and nobody seemed to have ever golfed before. It took over 1 hour to play 2 holes!!! People were hitting 2 and 3 balls off tees, wandering around aimlessly, etc.. We actually left after 12 holes! NEVER again!

Booked a 7am tee time on what turned out to be a rainy day. Called the pro shop at 6am & 630am to check course conditions but there was no answer. Drove 40 minutes to the course only to find a stake in the ground saying “course closed.” Perhaps with the recent renovations management can invest in an outgoing voicemail message for inclement weather. So often the golfer experience is defined by the little things...awareness of tee times and the golfers who hold them would be a nice start.

This was a very tough round for me , first time playing . This is a course for a precision type player , not the weekend warrior.

Course should have closed it was unplayable

Arrived early for tee time starter let me go out , once on the golf course I realized it was soaked from the day before. casual water everywhere. Why they put a cart out I will never know. I was the only player out on course that I know of. after eight holes it started to pour then on hole nine the thunder and lightening started. I had to quit playing. However had I not played I would have been charged anyway! poor policy by Golf Now. the course was so soaked that I felt I the cart was bogged down where there were no cart paths ! overall bad experience. Long ride for nothing.

The course is not getting maintained properly. The roughs are hardly being cut. No ball washers.

Needs Work

Course is being sold. Course and club house need lots of work. Won't play there again until New owner takes over. I met him and seems like a good fit.

Somer's Pointe CC

Found a random hot deal for this course and decided to try it based on it's length from the tips. This is by far and away my favorite golf course I have ever played. It's like a video game course come to life. One of a kind layout with torturous greens that will leave you looking at your missed put and asking..."really?" I had to play this course ten times before I finally broke 90 lol. Took a tour pro friend of mine and he shot a 92 his first time. Not recommended for the faint of heart or anyone who has anger issues while playing. Absolute must play for anyone who enjoys a challenge and a unique layout. I've played around 100 different courses and this is still my favorite.

Great Fun!

Can’t wait to play this course again. The rough was more than rough due to the fact a tornado had past through a week or so earlier so they were trying to catch up with all the fallen trees. The course is in some kind of transition from originally being a “Country Club” to now going semi-public I think. No restaurant or pro shop. But the course is awesome! Looking forward to playing here many more times.

A pleasurable challenge

Long and narrow with many elevation changes and a fair bit of water, this is a course that really tests accuracy off the tee and will never be boring no matter how often one plays it. For many of the par 4 holes a long iron or hybrid is the wise choice off the tee. The course was well maintained—despite understandably needing to catch up on some things due to the recent storms. Staff is always friendly and accommodating and there is a great clubhouse and restaurant overlooking the 18th green.
