Poor management

I booked a t time on the app. They called me 30 min before and said they couldn’t let me play because of a tournament. I was half way there. Gave me a rain check. Said it’s been happening a lot.

A Charming Old Southern Belle in Need of TLC

Friendly staff. Decent pace. A few shots that require shaping, so that kept my interest. From the tips, the par 3s are no joke; bring a good long iron game with you.

This is a Zoysia grass course, so you won’t get much roll-out in the fairway, but better that than the rough. A ball in the rough on this course can literally disappear before your eyes.

On Sept. 9, 2021 the greens were in horrible shape. They put the “colon” in Colonial…they were crap. But on the upside, they have little shape to them; just pick a line and putt confidently.

Nice course for the better than average golfer

Outside of a few open dirt areas in the rough, the course looked in decent shape. Some golfers not respectful in repairing ball marks on the greens. Generally in good shape. Would play again.

Course Marshall

My only complaint for this course would be they need a Marshall. He had a scheduled tee time but didn't get out until 1 hour afterwards, due to congestion on #1.
