We've had too much rain!

I like this course and have played often. It's a nice mix of holes and difficulty. It played extremely long today due to a lot of rain in the last 2 weeks. Despite a beautiful day of sunshine, light wind and temps in the mid 60s, the course was still very wet. Even drives hit high plugged in the fairways, and no roll on any shots. However the greens were in pretty good condition.
I really like the back 9 on this course especially from 12 thru 18.
And in fairness, every course in the area is CPO and in similar condition.

Wet winter golf

Albeit cart path only, and very wet conditions, the course is well maintained and played well.
The fairways looked very inviting with the outline of Bermuda rough being brown!

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.
