Friendly staff, wide open course

Hands down the staff is outstanding. From course knowledge to tips on the greens, they are the best. The fairways were in good shape given the drought conditions and summer months. The greens were a little slow and need to come back a little but overall helped grab your ball when it landed. Pace of play was fast. Overall a great experience.

Gary Player Course Mission Hills

Another great round at this course. Due to the heat the course was wide open for us so we were done quickly. The staff is always friendly and very helpful. We like this course and will be back.

Gary Player Mission Hills

Always a nice round at this course. Number 5 hole was under repair but accessible. Although the course is showing it’s age a bit, the friendly staff and discount rate for the warmer season make it well worth it.

Don’t waste you time

Showed up to the parking lot there are weeds coming out of the cracks place looked closed down. Club house in need of updating everything very minimal. Staff very friendly, really talked up the course. Fare ways are good but anything needed edging groomed etc it just wasn’t done for a long while. The course looks NOTHING like the photos we seen on Golf Now.
I would not have played this course if the updated photos where posted

Save your money

I have never written a review on any golf course. But here it goes please do not spend you money on this golf course. Is in bad condition and looks nothing like the pictures. The staff were very friendly but the course has seen it’s better days.

Super surprised

From the parking lot this course looks a bit beat up. But the course was in excellent condition. Each hole presents a beautiful layout and a great experience. Just a joy to play.

Water shortage

Definitely a lot of dry spots out there and if you're off the Fairway you're in trouble. Greens were fine however.

Why pay $75 for this course

Slow pace no marshal. Price for the course was overpriced for the conditions. Simple things cups for the water coolers on course none. No ice except at the start. Beverage cart minimal stock and limited liquor only in a can? At the turn we’re told it takes to long to make a hotdog so get a sandwich which the bread was dry. Finally quit on hole 15 due to excessive delays, drove to the end and on the par 5 here’s a foursome on the green two foursomes on the fairway and two foursomes waiting on the tee box. Do I need to go on? Other players we spoke to also indicated same frustration.
