Average layout but always slow

From the 4th hole on, we waited every shot. At times there were 2-3 groups waiting at a tee .Marshall’s seem to drive, sit and watch and take no action.

Perfect weather
Walked

The range & practice facility are great and the greens are very nice. However, I think the course is a little overpriced with a standard rate of $105.00. Further, while the green fee includes a power cart, if you want a push cart to walk it's another $12.00, which is ridiculous, especially if you want to reduce wear and tear on the course and encourage healthy/active lifestyles.

Pleasant surprise

Played as a threesome with a member and friend. Great guys who helped me with local yardages. The member mentioned that the previous owner had run the course down so the members bought the course and have rehabilitated it over the past two years. Some rough areas are sketchy. Pretty open off the tee. Solid greens. Most greens are elevated. Great driving range and practice greens. I will come back. Friendly helpful staters.

Great course, perfect fairways and greens

First time playing. We were paired with a couple who live in the resort for the winter. We teed off on time at 2:27 and finished 9 by 4:57. Got cold and dark quick but we really enjoyed the round. Course conditions were spectacular. Greens were firm and quick. Fairways were lush and consistent. Overall, would LOVE to play this one again.

A feeling of having been robbed …..

We were able to get a tee time at this course at what we thought was a reasonable price , same as an other course we played the day before in the area . The conditions were just poor , as if no overseeding , played on dead grass , we should have been offered a discount in light of the playing conditions . The only positive point was greens in good overall conditions .
