Lovely golf course, with each hole offering its' own kind of intimate golf experience. The par 5s are shorter, but not short on challenge. I wanna live in some of the houses that I saw along those pristine fairways. Not long until I become age-eligible for that, and mentioning that might carry a bit of weight with how one is approached by staff. Solid grades all around. Good value, great-looking track. I will return.

Lots of shade

The grass is in excellent condition. Not too many sand traps but the sand is hard. The water comes into play only twice. The staff is really nice. I would play this course every day If I could afford it.

Great executive course

FOS is a great place to work on your short game and still has 6 holes that allow you to use driver. It’s especially nice at this time of year because there’s plenty of shade. The greens are in good shape but the fairways and rough have very wet areas. It’s clear that the watering system is in trouble. It would be helpful to have the really wet areas roped off because we seemed to be in standing water a few times before I realized that I should not be taking a cart through. In spite of it all, still had a great morning!

A nice Sunday morning

The course has a watering problem so there are some very wet areas. Greens are in good condition but the pin placements are tough.
The day was great and and the company was better than my game today.

Couples golf

This course provides all you need for a really a couples round of golf. The executive layout is very golfer friendly and our wife’s really enjoyed the morning of golf. The course was in very good shape and the greens were excellent. The staff was friendly and courteous.The course had several locations of bathrooms. Just remember to get the code to the doors.
