First Time Playing

Great layout-average conditions

Played my first round at River Falls this weekend after reading several reviews on the course that made me want to play there. The layout it awesome. Almost a mountain course feel. A lot of elevation changes. Long drives between holes and each hole is isolated from each other. The course is pretty tight both around the fairways and greens. A lot of time you miss the fairway or green and your ball is completely gone. The course is one of the more challenging ones that I’ve played in a while. The course conditions were just average in my opinion. Greens were firm and smooth and fast except for 2 that were being reworded. Fairways were mown but the clippings have not been blown off of them. They also hadn’t striped the fairways. Rough was very thick Bermuda grass. Easy to lose your ball in. Again the clippings hadn’t been blown off. The tees were chewed up some. Especially on the holes where you would hit iron off the tees (this includes some par 4s on this varied layout). To me it looked like it had rained a lot 2 weeks ago and play and mowing had been allowed when it was too wet. Then this past week it was hot and dry and everything baked. Not at all a bad course. I’d play again. Especially for the $35 price I paid on a Saturday. But it’s not the top end course that I thought it was-at least not right now.

Fun Course

Played here last year with a group of friends and really enjoyed it. So we came back this year when we were in the area. This is a fun course. It’s not overly hard. And it’s pretty wide open. Almost a links feel. Lots of elevation change helps defend the course. But again. It’s a place you can go and shoot a good score. The course is in good shape for the most part. Fairways and greens had full coverage. Although sometimes there wasn’t much difference in the fairways and the rough. The greens rolled pretty good a little on the slow side in my opinion but they were in pretty good shape. The tees were ok. Some spots were chewed up. Especially on the par 3. It’s a good place to go with your buddies and have a good time. It’s a good price too with e $2 discount if you pay cash.

Great layout, average conditions.

Played Oak Hollow today and I love the layout. It has a good variety of types of holes. Long and short, doglegs both ways. Tight and pretty open. It helps to have played here before. There are several blind shots and that makes finding you ball harder. The holes on the lake are beautiful. I think it helps to play a fade. I generally hit a draw/hook and it got me in trouble several times. Most of the trouble seems to be on the left. The greens have full coverage and roll a little bit slow but pretty smooth. The fairways are in ok shape. There are a few bare spots and some GUR just off some the fairways. The tee boxes are decent. A little chewed up but not bad. It’s a fun course to play. We paid $39 for a Sunday morning round. At that price or less it’s worth playing.

Great First Trip

I have been wanting to play here for a while now, and finally got a chance to today when I found a heck of a hot deal online ($26, rack rate was $63). The course was busy and double tees at least on the weekends. So the pace of play was not great. But still just under 4.5 hours. The layout of the course was awesome! A good variety of holes, some long, some short, some doglegs both ways, some tight some wide. The par 3s however didnt play a ton different, seems like all 4 of them were between 170-180. But other than that no two holes were alike. The greens were generally large and very undulating. No flat greens and several tough pins in the bowls on the greens. Even though its in Boone, it doesnt really play as much of a mountain course, it sits down in a valley and is generally flat or slightly rolling hills. The course was in good shape. The greens were very smooth, a little slow in my opinion, but very smooth. And the fairways and tees were really nice. If you are in the area and can get a deal on a tee time take a chance and play. You will thoroughly enjoy your round.

About what I expected.

Stopped in Jacksonville on my way home from the Keys and was itching to play some golf. Picked this course because it was closest to the shopping area my wife wanted to go to. Paid about $40 for a Saturday afternoon round. Course was about what I expected it to be for that price near a larger city. The course was not it bad shape. But not pristine. About what you’d expect for a 40 buck public course. Fairways, rough, tees were all mowed. Fairways in pretty good shape. And most tee boxes too. Except the par 3s. They were chewed up so. Greens were smooth and firm. But a little slow in my opinion. I had trouble getting anything to stop on them. But then couldn’t get the ball to the hole on my putts. Layout is fairly interesting. A lot of doglegs. Some short holes. A couple of longer ones. Most par 3s were short to medium irons from the white tees. 1 short par 5. The others were average distance. A lot of water. Most of it on the side. But 4-5 forced carries at some point. Saw the cart girl 2 times. $3 for a Pepsi. $4 for a draft beer in the clubhouse. Overall not bad and would play again. Good choice in the area when you want to play a round without the agony or expense of Sawgrass or the World Golf Village.

Good shape! Tough Course!

Played for the first time in a long time at Cleghorn this morning. First the course is in really good shape. If you are not hitting it well this course will absolutely eat you up. It did me especially on the front 9! The greens are near perfect. Firm and pretty fast but not overly so and really smooth. The fairways and tees were mowed or in the process of being mowed and were in good shape. Only thing that stops it from being 5 Star is there are a few spots on the fairways and tees with winter kill still and there are some spots around the edges that are rough. But you can see evidence that they are working on those areas. I had the first tee time off on a Friday morning and thought it was a good value for $36

Great Public Course

You cant beat the River Bend YMCA course for a great local, public course. Phil and his staff do an awesome job. They are glad to see you, the run the local First Tee Program and actually encourage youth golf and the growth of the game. The course itself is in really good shape right now. The bermuda greens are extremely nice, they are rolling very smooth and fast. The 5th green does seem to have some damage on it from the winter but its out of play. They are also redoing the irrigation on the Par 5 second hole, so it is currently playing as a temporary par 3 which makes the front a par 34 and a stretch of 4 holes (2-5) with 3 par 3s. The fairways and tees are cut and have full coverage and are in good shape. The sand traps are full of sand, and alot of work has been done to improve the course as well. If you are there in the area go play. You'll be glad you did,

Excellent As Always

I get down to Hilton Head about twice a year, and Hilton Head National is my go to course. Its always in great shape, its challenging without beating you up like some of the bigger name courses, which makes it fun to play, and its always a few dollars cheaper than the on island courses. I played Memorial Day and was paired up with a local named Joe who was a great guy. Course was in great shape, greens fast and smooth (even though it had rained rather hard the previous evening). Fairways and tees were cut or being cut and were full and in good shape as well. I really enjoy the course. Its pretty forgiving as far as being able to find and play your ball, but get out of position and it makes par hard to get. The course eases you in the the round. There is not a ton of forced carries over water, but the holes with water it is in play tight on the sides of the hole.(6,7, and 18 come to mind). There are more forced carries over sand (4 and 14). The par 3s are very challenging even though they are shorter holes, and the course has a good mix on doglegs, long, and short holes. Many of the traps around the green are very penal. Overall, this is one of, if not my favorite course I have ever played and I fully recommend it to anyone in the Hilton Head area.

Sandy Greens

Deerbrook is a great and challenging layout. Longer than most courses from the regular tees and you will have several forced carries, doglegs, etc.. 17 and 18 are tough finishing holes. The greens had just been verticut and sanded which made them bumpy while putting, but they knocked a few bucks off the regular price because of it. This course is a great value in what you pay for and what you get. I think the layout is great, and in a week or so the sand will be gone and the greens will be in great shape.

Greens Great, staff friendly

Played on a Tuesday afternoon, so the course was not real crowded and pace of play was not a problem. The staff is very friendly and make you feel welcome. The course is still growing in early in the spring, so the fairways, tees, and rough are hit and miss. But give it a month or so and they will be in great shape. The bermuda greens although probably not growing alot yet are very smooth and a great putting surface. The crew has cut down a number of trees making the course much more playable and player friendly. Its a good local course that is great for an afternoon round that wont take forever.
