Very short course, nothing over 100 yards and most under 70. Small greens that rolled well. It was hard to tell which holes to play as the path through the round is poorly defined even on the scorecard.
Poor quality par 3 course
1. Way overpriced.
2. Old pull carts. No straps to hold down the bags.
3. Tee boxes torn up.
4. "Fairways" resemble a cow pasture.
We've been playing The Haven 18-hole course several times over the years. It's a well-maintained fun course. We had company in town who wanted to play 9 holes so we thought we would try the Tortuga course. Very disappointing.
Good practice for short game
Fun course. Great to work on 95 yards and shorter shots. A couple of longer holes would be nice
Perfect for beginners or someone wanting to work with some irons. I played the course with three clubs, 8 iron, PW and putter. Had a good time and easily walked the 9 holes twice.
Fun for what it is
It’s a wedge course, don’t go on expecting anything more. There are no hazards either. Very good for practicing the short game and playing with beginners. Mostly feels like a walk in the park plus a little golf. Add a Bloody Mary and it’s not a bad way to spend a morning.
Tortuga par 3
I was disappointed how short each hole was.
I was expecting around 170 yards & less.
Longest hole was 90yards.
Starter was extremely nice
You only need about 3 clubs for the course.
Probably wont play it again but that's just me.
Course was in decent shape.
Pitch chip and putt practice
Just a simple 9 hole pitch and putt that you play through twice. Most greens are domed so challenging to hold. Few people play so you can take your time and work a couple of balls on each hole. I bring a few wedges and work on my short game. Price is steep for a short course so look for a hotdeal.
Best place to practice short game
Great little par 3 course! It's actually a ton of fun and is a great way to tune up your short game. I've recently had an issue with blading those 40-65 yard shots and this is a great place to get rid of that issue without all the pressure of being on the real course. Would play again. Only gripe is that it's a little expensive for a par 3. I paid $25 but for $7 more you can get a tee time for the full size course.
The golf course had a lot of grass on it. It was also long in places- maybe due to the rain? The holes themselves had long grass and didn't go in properly. Ihave seen itin better condition. For the golfnow price it was good but the golf price there was $20 and a bit high.
A Short Par 3 Hole Wedge Course
Good for brushing up on your wedges. 2 hours were expended to go around twice on this 9 hole course to get in 18. It was not busy when we played. No hole is very long and the greens are fairly small. The greens putted well but some of them break more than they look. Spend a few extra seconds walking the line if you want to score well. Tee boxes are a little humpy and chewed up. Biggest annoyance I had was that my range finder (Golf Buddy) was not in agreement with the way many of the holes are numbered. For example hole 2 shows on the range finder as hole number 8. Overall, at ten bucks for 18, it is a fair value and makes for worthwhile short game practice..
