Needs some major TLC

I get it their clubhouse is under construction, but at least put up a temporary pro shop that has water, Gatorade, some sort of prepared food, balls, tees, gloves, etc. The course was extremely tight, lots of trees, houses VERY close, bunkers hard as a rock, and some of the tee boxes were shaped like a turtle shell and sandy. Aside from that, the other tee boxes were good enough to find a decent spot to tee off from, fairways were in good shape, and greens were very receptive and riled somewhat true. I would not go back or recommend playing there at least until their facility has been completed and all of their equipment is pulled into some sort of maintenance shop (currently scattered along the sides of the starting and finishing holes).

Very Disappointed

This was my first time playing this course, and at this point, unless course conditions drastically change, it will be my last time playing it! These course conditions, especially the greens, were totally unacceptable and disappointing! It appears that the course has been neglected for years. The overall layout of the course was acceptable, except for hole number one, it needs to be redesigned and lengthened. However, some of the holes on the back nine had some nice hills and were an unexpected surprise!

Convenient

This course is a close drive and is convenient commute. The fairways are narrow on the par 5s and the par 3s are long (challenging) from Blue Tees.

Holes #1 and #9 was redesigned and #18 are a bit odd. The homes are really close to the green for my comfort.

The greens are being fertilized. The pace of play is great. The club house is under construction.

golf course wasn't the only challenge

So there's a gate to access before entering the property. The only problem is that you need a code. So I call the golf course. Voicemail! Not a good way to get started. Finally, a helpful person in the neighborhood knew the code to open the gate. I was greeted by a very friendly golf course employee who brought a cart and provided valuable information. Course is very interesting and challenging but it needs work. Some of the greens had bare patches with sand. The Bunkers were kind of hard and needed some work. The rough was also difficult as balls could disappear not far from the fairway. There were no rakes for the bunkers. There was no drinking water either. Pace of play was not much of an issue as there were not many people playing. However, we were held up a bit on the final holes by a fivesome. If it's still open to the public, I may try it again in the fall.

Lots of doglegs. First hole needs to be reconfigured. Love the back 9. It has more character than the front 9. Club house under construction and owner working to improve course.

Loved the layout. Back nine different than front nine. Hole one does not give you a good impression of the overall course. Tee boxes and bunkers need work.

Lotta Work to Do

I read some reviews and went out for a round at Sweetwater. There are a lot of holes that don't align with your Garmin or other GPS device. It's very tight, and the more you play here the easier it would be. A few bare spots on greens, a lot of weeds and sand spurs in the rough. All in all, I would play here again but wouldn't buy a house here.

Nice Layout

My wife and I played this private course for the first time as part of the public promotion. It is a nice and challenging layout. A few of the greens had bare spots, but in general were in good condition. The club house is under construction so some of the cart paths are no paved yet. We hope to play again soon.

Good- Greens slow but in good shape.
Bad- All other course conditions.
I can't believe this was a private course which had paying members.
Back nine has a much better layout than front.
Play here for $35 but no more until they buy fertilizer and weed killer.

Great round

My friend and I took advantage of this course being temporarily open to the public. Nice layout with several unique challenging holes. Some grass was a little patchy, but that's to be expected with our unrelenting heat. Overall it was in pretty good shape. Very few amenities as they are finishing renovations of the clubhouse but the starter was very friendly. I'll definitely try this one again before they close to the public.

Has potential to be a gem

I played a bargain rate. And I will only be back at a bargain, riate.
Greens really really need a lot of work, they are very slow. , they just haven’t been rolled regularly.
I get that it is a tight course, but really, some of the older oaks need to be pruned on the fairways.
