Sad

Not on par with other $60 courses I’ve played in the area. Fairway cut long rough cut real long greens spotty and very inconsistent some fast some slow conditions making it rough playing on a very good weather day. I’ll not play again

Fun round, tough course

Course in good shape. My only complaint is the rough is too high. I should not have to walk over directly over my ball to find it. But I did play on a Tuesday. Overall, good round on a pretty tight course. Would play again.

Off-roading

Course is good. Cart paths are an absolute disaster on Byrd. Avoid this course for that fact alone.

Good solid choice

Good layout. Greens were slow, probably due to a long knap of the grass on them. The approaches were soggy, b/c of watering the greens in midday. (It was late June). This caused my approach shots to crater, rather than bounce onto the green. Vastly reduced services and amenities due to Coronavirus scare, but the course conditions were good. Nice course worth playing.

GOLF NOW NEEDS TO PAY ME MY MONEY BACK

I reserved a tee time @ this course...unfortunately when I got to course they said it was closed due to how wet it was. So i drove home...I went to golfnow app and tried to get a refund and they said sorry your tee time has already passed. I know the cancellation policy is in effect if the course is closed which it was! Golf now has no customer service reps working....need help getting my money back ASAP!

Great Course for Vacation Golfers

Really enjoyed our round of golf at this course. Just the right level of challenge for weekenders or vacation golfers. Greens were in great shape.

Two minor critiques: more drinking water along the course would be good. Especially on hot days. And the cart path is in pretty rough shape throughout the course.

Great day at links.

Course was in decent shape. Greens in great shape, but a tad slow. Just great to be playing in the age of Covid. Separation issues handled well. Always a good value for the dollar.

Going downhill

Been a year since I played this course. Sadly, the course seems like it's going in the wrong direction. Only redeeming part were the greens. Everything else looks like the place is going downhill. Hadn't rained in a few days but still cart path only. Trouble with the cart paths, so rough you'll leave a kidney behind.
Much better courses around for lesser price.

Not for Big Drives

Course was in excellent condition. It was a little wet so cart path only and not much roll. I used my driver maybe4-5 times. If you hit your drive 250+, be prepared to use a lot of 5 and 3 woods off the tee.

I played by myself. Was first tee time. Played 3 balls a hole and finished under 4 hours. Would have been quicker if it wasn't cart path only.

Came back for more!

Played by myself in 3 hours! 8 AM tee time On Sunday and had the course to myself, so I was able to get to the beach. Some challenging shots, I like this course. If your unfamiliar with the Bermuda grass greens (like myself) good luck. Tough to read and fairly s-l-o-w. Both starters are great, friendly and knowledgeable.
