Rolling layout

The course was in great shape and well maintained. Lots of rolling hills with well cared for fairways and greens. This course will challenge you if you don’t stay in the fairways.

Challenging but fun to play

Played this course for the first time. It was a beautiful day. The pace of play was great. The foursome in front was a little slower but overall we moved. This course is for an advanced player. It is challenging but also fun to play and very scenic. The greens were interesting. Sometimes fast and sometimes slower. This was the only downside. It was hard to judge the greens. Overall, loved the course. I recommend it.

Course was a little wet but not bad considering all the rain otherwise the course was in great shape. My only complaint is the inconsistent pace of the greens. Some were fast some were horribly slow.

First time playing the Preserve in over a year. Overall the course was in excellent condition. The only issue was with the greens. My previous experience with the Preserve was that the greens were extremely fast and difficult. Today they were extremely slow. Very soft. You had to hit it pretty hard to get it to the hole. Although it made the course play easier, players expecting the challenge that the Preserve usually presents will be disappointed.

Still a great course to play but don't expect the greens to in a condition comparable to the rest of the course.

Thank you for the 4 star review! We apologize that our greens were a bit on the slow side, we were preparing for our annual Member Guest Tournament and had to do a few un-routine maintenance practices resulting in the grass not being mowed as tight. They will be in tip top shape moving forward.

Challenging but Fun and Fair

Overall, the course is in good condition for late summer. The putting green is way faster than the greens on the course. Fairways are in good condition, rough is nasty dense. Wish they'd use sand that doesn't have gravel in it!!!!! Tough course, you need to hit good drives (225 yds) to ensure carrying the cross ditches on your second shot on about 5 holes (Played from white tees at 6161 yds). Always enjoy playing Preserve but know I better be packing some extra golf balls!!!!!!

Unreasonable pace!

First time playing the course. Twice we had the ranger stop by with the second time asking us to skip the next hole. We were a foursome that finished the round in four hours and six minutes. Each time he visited us we were properly within expectations for a four hour round. Both times he told us the group behind us was calling and complaining. We happened to meet that group later in the parking lot and they denied calling and thought our pace was just fine. Went from having an enjoyable round that we drove 90 minutes to experience to an overall miserable encounter. Two of our foursome had a similar experience with this course a year ago when the two tee times ahead of their scheduled tee were no shows. The ranger chased them around the course trying to get them to close the gap on the group that started play almost twenty minutes before them. Thought the previous experience was an aberration but apparently it is systemic. What a shame!!

Condition

This is a challenging golf course and long from the blue tees. It seemed as though no maintenance was done all week. The tee boxes looked like they haven’t been mowed in a week or more and nearly the same for the fairways. The greens rolled very slow even if you had a downhill putt. The green side bunkers had very little sand and made the shots very difficult. I would love to play the course again when conditions improve.
