Best municipal course in BR

This is my childhood home course that I have not played in over 10 years. I do practice here 4-5 days a week since it is on my way to work in the mornings and the staff here is awesome. I took a client out for a round since Pelican Point had a tournament that day and we both really enjoyed the round. Overall condition of the course was surprisingly very good considering how much play it gets. Open 7 days a week to the public puts a toll on a course like this. I will definitely start playing here more.

Santa Maria in great shape

Everything was great except pace of play. We were a threesome. There was a threesome in front of us and a five some in front of them that slowed everything down. Even the marshall admitted to not telling the fivesome to pick up the pace because the group was arguing about a lost ball when he went to talk to them. Greens are fast right now too, which I like.

Good Recovery

Course suffered major storm damage and flooding. It's back to about 95%. The layout is great and the staff second to none. Range, chipping green and putting greens are a major plus. Fairways could be groomed a bit better but overall a fun course.

SKEET SKEET

Great conditions even after this IDA crap- glad to see the work they put in to get their course back up and running. Also awesome to see a cart girl out today. Greens were a little long/slow but still great shape.

Be back with the homies soon!

Not very pleasant

Was charged an additional 8 dollars on top of my GolfNow cart fee in order for my girlfriend to ride with me. The walk up tee time in front of us allowed his sons girlfriend (who wasn't charged a rider fee or green fee) to tee off multiple shots which slowed the pace of play. Took over 2 hours to play the front 9.
