Black Horse South

Great course, but we were a twosome stuck behind a fivesome.
Was told "members" are allowed a fivesome, but these guys were in the woods all day.
Worse, we were told as we checked in that they played "fast".
C'mon, man...5 at 4 o'clock is ok. NOT at 12 o'clock

Great Day

The course was as I expected it to be..in tip top shape. Aeration had been done recently but had no effect on playability.

The South course is in terrible shape and not worth the $120 I had to pay to play it.

This is the second time I’ve had a bad experience with some of the pro shop guys. I asked a question about the greens being punched on the South course and the old man responded with a belittling “do you think you’d get to play the course for $70 if they weren’t punched?!” I had to remind him that i paid $120 to play the south course. That ended up being a complete ripoff also. The course was completely soaked, there multiple areas all over the fairways that turned completely to mud, multiple areas where grass wouldn’t grow and none of the tee boxes were cut. The course definitely was not worth $120 and i certainly will not be returning again to deal with the old man with a horrible attitude. Good riddance.

You'll enjoy the round

Played in the afternoon and it was hot. Staff were very friendly and wanted to help in any way. I was a single and took my chances to hook up with someone. When I arrived there was no one there to join. The starter indicated the front nine was crowded and suggested going off the back nine since it was open. These are the little things that make a difference.

The layout is fun. Some holes are straight away but many are dog legs and have either sand or water to contend with. Ya kind of welcome the straight par 4s at that point lol. Varied tee lengths so you can make the course as long as you want.

Conditions were ok. But keep in mind it's June. Greens held to an extent. Putting was true (not bumpy), and were a little slow, which was not too bad.

All in all, it's worth the time and money.

Best greens I’ve played in 2021

The course was in excellent shape. The greens were the best I’ve played in 2021. Ever putt rolled true with good pace. The fairways were also in great condition. Will definitely go back!
