Totally wet

The course was totally wet. The golf carts GOS
Shut down tour carts because they said we were off the cart paths but we were not. This happened on at least 7 holes . The groups behind us had the same problem.
I would check if it’s golf carts only and not play if it is

Beautiful Course, Horrible Pace of Play

Fun course with beautiful scenery. Well kept with a semi-challenging layout. Course was well stocked with waters and other amenities, only thing lacking was enforcement on pace of play which really ruined the day for my group and those behind us.

This course is very overpriced

My father and I travel a good bit to golf, and I have to say this is easily one of the worst courses I’ve played condition-wise for how much the round costs for resort guests. The greens were different speeds, the fairways were bare in many spots, and the rough was not nicely maintained, with varying types of grass throughout. The staff members were all friendly and helpful. I just know for $160; I’d never play this course or even try the other ever, especially with a course like Bahia, a short drive away for only about $90 more.

Not really an Ocean course

You can’t call it Ocean course and have just one hole by the ocean. And that par 3 just had an ocean view and not on the ocean. And it was cart path only so lots of waking in muddy conditions due to rain earlier in the week. Now that’s okay if the price is reduced but paying $160 per person and then $70 to rent clubs made for a super expensive and super long round of golf

Decent course

The course is OK. It is called Ocean but there is only one hole (#16) next the it.

The greens are very slow, and the fairways and rough were in not so good condition (I do not know it is because of the winter time).

Better than the River Course

This course had a fun layout, better than the River Course in my opinion. The bev cart came around multiple times. The half-way house was open on this course, it was closed on the River Course. Good hotdogs.
