Club House Staff Friendly

We had tee time for 12:44 and we were not able to golf until 2 pm because of outing held there in the morning. Nobody notified us, it was horrible since we were the last ones coming off the course at 5:50 and could barely see our balls.

Bad driving range and greens

Driving range was irons only!! Hitting box was so far back you couldn’t see any of the flags. Greens were really chunky.

Extremely Slow

Considering this course is embedded in a very large subdivision it’s fair to expect it to be busy. What isn’t expected are the members who bypass the marshal and tee off wherever they choose, slowing down the pace-of-play even more, on what was already a busy weekend. While on course you would expect a marshal to ride through to make sure everyone is keeping a good pace as well. Easily had to wait 15-20 minutes on a majority of tee boxes and unfortunately I wasn’t able to finish the round because of how late it was, so I had to ride through the remaining 4 holes.

There were several patchy and sandy greens, and overall the course conditions have declined somewhat.

The highlight of the day for me was meeting two other players (father and son) who I paired up with half through the round. I normally dread having to pair up with “randos”, but they were chill and made the remainder of the round endurable.

First time at the course - 12/16/23

It’s a standard neighborhood course with houses on either side of most of the holes. Staff was super friendly and helpful on what to expect throughout the day. I wasn’t a huge fan of the green conditions. They were not receptive to most shots and had a lot of burn spots on every green. It appears they haven’t tended to them in the off season. Other than that, it was a unique experience with #17 being my favorite hole. That hole is the reason I will be back again.

Overall, not a bad course for the money.

Beautiful...except for the greens

Layoutt is nice. Challenging but not crazy Hard. Decent length from the blue tees. Lots of rolling hills.
The greens are horrible. Matted grass with track marks everywhere. We may try to play again in the spring...if the greens are better.

Holiday Round

Played on Black Friday, they paired us with 2 other guys, so it was pretty busy. The fairways are very tight with houses and cars in driveways lining the course. We drove up from staying in Orange beach because the price of a round anywhere in that area are crazy high. The course is in decent shape and the greens roll okay. Good breakfast sandwich in the clubhouse.
