Not a resort course

No gps, little sand in traps, cups not changed today, beverage cart was only beer, bar closed, just your average Florida style public course.

Wouldn't play again

My first experience playing this course. It's an average course, but was warned by hotel attendant before heading out that the greens aren't great. The weather was hot- visited in late July. The staff were great. But I played behind a family who were not pacing well. They played multiple shots over and didn't seem to understand how I should be playing through. After waiting about 10 mins at a tee box, I skipped past so I didn't get to finish the hole or even play it. Fairways were avg, and greens were in poor condition. Sandy and grainy. I ended up stopping play at the 12th hole, and left. I'd not play again for this price.

Very enjoyable and fair test

Generous fairways and greens. Second shots were challenging as greens were well protected.

Very friendly staff.

Range needs water to clean clubs!

Sevensome

There was a group of seven playing in front of us and they didn't let us play through until the 9th hole! I have never been behind a group of 7 all playing together. Unacceptable! I felt like they should give us a free 9 holes in the future but when we finished there was no one in the clubhouse to tell them about our round.

Awp

There was few staff and most importantly no Marshall. I quit after 12 holes because the foursome in front of me was molasses slow, had horrible etiquette and the course conditions weren’t up to par for me to want to continue. There were two full holes open in front of them.

Beautiful course

The Beach Course was beautiful & in great shape. The Kings Course was not unfortunately. It wasn’t in good shape, especially some of the putting greens. There were a few obstacles on the course (goats).
When we finished at 3, the restaurant & bar were sadly closed!

Had a good time

Only played 9 holes. Had a great time. the only issue I had was the condition of the bunkers. You wold think that the bunkers would be raked and manicured each morning. the bunkers were very hard from the evening watering the night before.

Beautiful course, great golf staff

The course was lots of fun and the pace perfect. Loved playing by the ocean was great. The staff was very accommodating. Except for the older hostess/waitress in the restaurant. She was very snooty and even sniffed at us when we decided not to eat there! We each had a drink and left a tip but would not ever go back.
