High expectations met

Even though the course was wet from a week of rain it was still in great shape. A beautiful course. Some of the greens have significant undulation. Very nice clubhouse and great bar. Loved it and will definitely return.

Wet (to be expected) but slow (not expected)

The hurricane 3 weeks ago followed by less than ideal drying conditions made the course soggy but that was to be expected as all course in the area are currently plagued by wetness. What was not expected was the slow slow play! On one par five there were 4 groups on the hole! Lots of waiting due to 64 man tournament that went off at the start of the day. Wish I had known! I wish there was a way of knowing ahead of time!

Good course but priced high.

Good views, course was in good shape. Only time i talked to staff was at the starter to begin. No cart girl.
Average course, back nine had some sloppy greens that were challenging. Better courses around for the same price.

Scenic and wide open

Very nice views of wetlands and the course is very wide open. No narrow tee shots and the signature par 3 is beautiful!
My first time here today although very hot with a heat advisory there were plenty of ice cold water located throughout the course.
I’ll be coming back here for sure!

Great

My wife and I went out behind two foursomes. I was prepared for a long day. We finished in less than 3 1/2 hours - Awesome. Course was in great shape. One of the best in the area.

Not visitor friendly

The course itself was excellent and in great condition. The pro shop attendant was barely polite. There was no starter, ranger, beverage cart, and no one mentioned the grill closed at 3 pm. It seemed like they expected club members and not guests.

Shell Landing

Great course, plenty of opportunities to shoot at the pin and plenty of danger if you miss!

Bunkers seem to always be in play and have to enter your thinking. It happened to be a windy day which added to the course difficulty.

I think I can shoot a better score, but don’t all golfers think that:)!

Nice layout

Greens were thin and very fast but true. Bunkers need a lot of work but it looked like they we’re getting ready to add new sand. Overall a great day. Maybe because I shot my age!!
