The Preserve Course Condition

Very nice layout. However, fairways were very dry bermuda on clay soil! Lots of roll on tee shots, but tough to hit long irons ir fairway woods.

Greens were very firm also….even 54degree wedge pitches from 25 yds ran like crazy.

Course should use some irrigation

Great Course and Value

Course has a bit of everything including water, force carry areas with natural areas including weeds, bushes, etc. I would recommend this golf for the above average golfer. May be a bit difficult if you do not hit the ball well. The greens are very good and roll true.

Nice course

The course was challenging but very picturesque. The course was overall in great condition, especially the greens. We enjoyed our outing. We were unable to complete the round due to weather conditions.

Hard to beat this course

This course has a beautiful layout, is well-maintained and very challenging. I've played many courses that cost about the same or more in this area that aren't even in the same league with this one. If you haven't tried this course out, you definitely need to soon!

Second shot course - difficult for mid-handicappers

Because the second shots are always long, and require difficult carries, the course is not really that playable/enjoyable from the forward tees - that is for the shorter hitters. Great deals for seniors but I am in two minds about playing again. Its a design flaw. for the average golfer.
