Fun!

Holliday weekend so it was pretty packed but the course was fun and the scenery was beautiful! Played an afternoon tee time and it was perfect weather. Fairways are open and greens are nice. Slower than they look but the cups hadn’t been cut in a few days and you could tell. My only suggestion would to bring some form of gps or range finder because it’s near impossible to tell how far out you are without markers visible in the fairways or on sprinkler heads near your shot.

Course in Absolute Disaray

The course has no irrigation and you are playing on fairways that are dirt, dry grass and rocks. There are fairways that are under construction and really not playable. This place is under staffed, poorly maintained, no matter what there apology is that us posted on the door. No one should be charged to play here and it should be closed until it is ready to resume it's original condition. Do not recommend that anyone plays here.
Called management, but no response. Never finished back 9. Just a mess.

Amazing staff and great course

Wonderful experience. Lost my Volkey wedge, general manager Kevin went out of his way to help me and recover my club. Exceptionally customer service and friendly.

Course is super convenient when visiting South Lake, with an affordable range and good prices for the area. Conditions were great considering it was early in the season. Great layout and beautiful scenery.

Thank you for a great experience.

Chilly morning in South Lake

I play the course every spring as part of a media group. It's never in prime shape that early in the season (nobody's fault but Mother Nature). It was drier than normal and the greens were good. The fairways are always patchy with some rough spots. The setting without homes and the beautiful holes that interact with the river make up for any shortcomings.

Rainy but good!

It rained off and on during the round but didn’t dampen our golf spirits. The course is recovering well from winter for their busy summer season. The greens had been punched recently but were in reasonably good shape. Fairways still a little patchy but a patch of good grass was always nearby. Rough was a little high and challenging. With snow still on the granite outcrops above the course, it was spectacular and always reminded you where you were. All a round excellent day.
