always enjoyable experience

course never fails to be enjoyable. fairways more than decent. greens were in good shape but somewhat slow.. greens are deceptive with more contours that meets the eye. only drawback to course is some of the cartpaths are really bumpy..played piper to bay. I do like the 3 par 3's and 3 par 5's that allow a short hitting senior to scre well.

Greens roiling well but wet fairways

It had not rained in a few days but areas of the fairways were very wet. Seems like overwatering caused by sprinkler system. Greens were in very good shape.

Interesting course

We enjoyed the course and found it to be not too challenging. Staff were very cheerful and helpful - especially considering that we played there on Thanksgiving day. The only negative is that the cart paths very much need to be repaved. Driving around the course was quite jolting on most holes.

A great price for a good round of golf

I don't know why this course doesn't receive higher ratings from people that play there. The greens are great, the fairways are still good, and the staff are friendly. Only thing I would change, a more usable bag drop. I don't like my clubs piles on a cart and driven out back.
