Challenging

Very nice course - in good shape, though the greens haven't recovered from recent aerating. The course certainly requires thoughtful strategy based on skill level and course hazards - a fun course!

Aerated greens - no announcement

Greens were recently aerated and there was no alert when booking and we were not given any notice until we got to the 1st green. Avoided playing another course due to aerated greens only to pay full price here and have a poor experience on the greens. Very disappointed

Punched greens

The preserve is typically a good track but they didn’t have any warnings up about punched greens when booking the tee time. The greens were unplayable. They didn’t spread the sand and roll it in so you were basically putting through a bunker.
