DISPLEASED

Thought playing on Thanksgiving afternoon would allow a nice afternoon of golf. Staff FABULOUS! Course beautiful. Pace of play, ridiculous!! Cart GPS reminded us over and over to keep up HOWEVER we were continuously held up on front 9 by 2some in front of us.
On back nine, there were junior golfers practicing for upcoming tournament.
We ended up not playing past Hole 12 as it was 4 deep waiting to tee off on a hole and we didn’t bring flashlights to finish.

What a layout!

We stayed at the resort so it was great for us. The girls came out on Monday for 9 holes and we played the front. I played the tips and was impressed with the length. The next day I played the full 18 and was completely impressed! The back is even better then the front!
This is a must play with some forced carry’s, water and undulated greens.
What a great course and great staff.
Can’t wait to go back!!!

Consistently Great!

I have played here many times over the last 6 years and I have never been disappointed by the conditions or the speed of the greens GIVEN THE TIME OF THE YEAR. The last emphasis is important because many tourists don’t understand the concept of overseeding right before the cooler months for the benefit of course health and playing conditions. Anyway, overseeding has gone well, the course is in great shape, and the greens are smooth albeit a bit slow. By now, they should be excellent! Great layout, great staff, and a real pleasure to play.

The recent overseeding and watering have created the most amazing green color grasses. It is so beautiful it doesn't even look real. We played in under 3-1/2 hours.

First time Awesome course and Layout

I really enjoyed my round this morning. Play to the yardages, pick a spot, and hit in there. Greens are in excellent condition, fairways and tee boxes were great, only thing is, a twosome husband a wife first out took 2 plus hours to play nine.. Once they finished up 9 we scooted around in an hour and half. Had back nine to ourselves. Awesome clubhouse filled with memorabilia

Course starters and Valet very personable, made it feel like they knew me. Keep up the great work.

Nice course for the price

I played the International course and it was in great shape. Greens were fast and true. Fairways and tee boxes were in good shape as well. Starter states pace of play would be slow because National course greens and fairways over seeded and everyone playing International course. We played in a little over 4 hours. Golf now price was a great value.

Where were the on course rangers???

While I rated everything just about five stars the overall review gets only three stars for the following two reasons 1- a twosome should never cut in front of a foursome and then slow the foursome down with no Rangers to be found on the course I had to actually make a call to the clubhouse to get a Ranger out there to see what these two lunatics were doing.
2- we are still dealing with the COVID-19 virus and singles should still be allowed to have a golf cart to themselves when the course is not busy enough and not be forced to pair up with people they’ve never met.
I would still recommend to play both of these courses as conditions were outstanding. But 3 o’clock cut off from the cart girl is too early when it warm.

Challenging course. Have to hit the fairways or rough will eat you up. Course in magnificent shape. Greens were near perfect and rolled true. Staff was very friendly. Would definitely recommend.
