Conditions fair to poor

The traps are a joke with many of them having grass growing in them. Severe lack of sand. Finding a distace marker on the tee was non-existant and in the fairway very hard.

A Slice of Heaven

Amazing course, greens were in great shape, bunkers well raked, tee boxes were level and the rough was rough (as it should be).

Quality Course

A very fair test for the player. There were only a few times I wish the carts had GPS so the blind shots could be better managed. The green rolled very well and the fairways were in great shape. I look forward to returning. Would have been great to have a beverage cart, but the course wasn't very busy.

PXG Proven Course

I love Whisper Creek, great variety of holes and great variety of tees. But I was disappointed in the bunkers, horrible sand and washed out it some places. Definitely not as nice as it was when it first opened.
That said, for the money (and an occasional on line deal) I would still recommend Whisper Creek, Also Sunday early times always seem to be available.

Bunkers were horrible

Sunday morning round, expected to be slow but not 5 and a half hours slow . There was little sand in the bunkers and they were in awful shape. $70 was too steep a price for this course. Greens and fairways were in gif shape. The ranger was very nice and amenities were way was to be expected.

Whisper Creek

I have not been out to Whisper Creek in over a year. I used to frequent it regularly, but getting an early tee time was near impossible and the pace of play especially on the weekend used to be 5+ hours.

We got an early time on Sunday and got to the third hole and hit a down pour for about 15 minutes. I think this scared alot of people away and made it clear sailing for us the rest of the day. We finished as a foursome in less than 4 hours. The course with the exception of the traps were in great condition. The traps were completely unplayable. And this had nothing to do with the rain. There simply was no sand in them. This course could be mint if they just fixed that issue. Its a challenging track and has a great balance between target golf and grip em and rip em holes. I hope the next time I come the pace is good and the traps are filled. It will keep me coming back more than once a year.
