Course does not have an active USGA rating

The greens were awesome. Smooth and fast. The layout was fun. Links style. No sand in the bunkers. The scorecard says to play all bunkers as ground under repair. Although there is a slope rating and course rating on the scorecard, according to the GHIN app, the course appears to not have an active USGA rating. So handicap scores cannot be posted.

Conditions are coming b ack

We play this course every September on our way back home to Florida. We were pleasantly surprised this year with the course conditions. The Tee Boxes have improved from the past few years. The Greens have made a fantastic recovery. No visible fungus or bare spots, mowed close and VERY slick. The fairways and roughs were mowed close but still have significant Crabgrass. The layout is traditional links with 6 tee positions. This is a fun course to play with not many tricks. Play it, you will enjoy it.

This course was a good time, staff was very friendly. Fairways and greens are very nice. Bunkers are unplayable at the moment, no sand. Wish there were a few on course extras, ball washers, water coolers. Overall a good experience!

Great Golf

This course can cater to the novice with the up tees and challenge the masters from the tips. There are 3 other tee boxes in between. The course is in great shape and greens roll true and are receptive to spin.

Let's play golf

A very fun course to play. Please bring your family and friends for a great time. There are no trees but some water all in all the course allows you to play most of your shots. Great place for both the beginner and the advanced players.

New golfers

There where two groups of golfers driving carts on the greens, please post signs that carts aren’t meant to be on the greens it’s bad course etiquette and bad for future rounds. The course was fine though, they didn’t have any sand to repair divots.
