Not what advertised
I was not happy when arriving at this “course”. To call this a par 3 course is a joke. It’s literally a glorified putt putt course. The holes are literally 70 yards and under. I had to hit a sand wedge the entire day. By entire day I mean 8 holes, because we left feeling like they got one over on us. We paid 25 I believe to play, when Charles L Sifford you can actually play real golf for 21 on certain deals. The pictures and description are extremely misleading. Waste of time and money.
My son was coming down for a weekend and i wanted to quickly throw together a round of inexpensive golf (since I would be funding this event). We played here about 10+ years ago when he was just learning and the conditions then were patchy ... not a great experience. However when we arrived Sat. am, I was very pleasantly surprised, this place was in great shape. Now it's just a par 3, which was perfect to work on our short game. That water will sometimes attract your ball. Butch and AJ were very friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed it a bunch !
Good place to practice your short game
Make sure your short game is good because if not a lot of water on course. A lot of balls maybe needed. Greens were not cut so they were slow
short but hard
This small par 3 is a chip and putt course. You only have to bring 2 clubs; a wedge and putter, but your short game better be good. All of the greens are small and even if you land on the green, it may roll off. The greens are not good for putting either. The grass is too long. It was also pretty soggy the day we went as the area got soaked in the days prior. Every hole is under 100 yards but you have to be on or you can not score well. Its too hard for me as i would rather be a full wedge out than 3/4 or half. But i guess its good for practice in that area.
Decent and fun Par 3 course
Being budget friendly this course has some really fun features that make some of the lesser attributes worth the money. I play here all the time and really have a good time.
Pros: Very affordable, interesting, very fun setting with plenty of challenges.
Cons: Tee mats often can be in poor condition and should be replaced more often, greens can be a bit rough, waterfowl can be a nuisance, pedestrian traffic from neighborhood can be a problem.
Other notes: Again, bang for the buck this is a fun course, for the beginner it can be a challenge in that the holes/fairways are rather narrow and many of them quite short so not much room for error, expect to loose quite a few balls to both water hazards and woodline/creek.
Small and Slightly Challenging
This course is great if you just want to get out and play some quick golf. The grass on the greens is thick, but that makes it easier to hold them. I highly recommend creating your own tee boxes on this course to make it a little more fun as every hole is under 100 yards.
Great course, great play!
This 18 hole course has it all. Water, bunkers and good conditions! It's kept up, and I would definitely recommend this course.
