Course was in great shape for December. Really enjoyed the variety throughout the round. Lots of water, but generally pretty forgiving off the tee. Will definitely be back in the summer.
My father and I had a blast playing this course. We are not used to the customer service we got the minute we showed up. And this was 1 guy running the pro-shop, and directing golfers/setting up carts and bags. That's a good employee right there. Only thing I could recommend is definitely lowering the price a bit because I think literally everyone could benefit from more ability to play. The pace was a bit behind but so controlled that it wasn't too long before we were back on the t-box. Outstanding course, and when funds are available, we will play again!
I love this club!
As they start to winterize, the amenities begin to dissipate, Balls at the driving range, being able to wash your golf balls and get a drink of water.
Course is interesting, tough but fair. Overall conditions were excellent. For the high handicapper this course might be a little too tricky. Many carries over creeks and water comes into play a lot. It's a penal design and your drives and iron shots need to be straigh. For the better player this course is a good challenge that won't ever bore you..I'd put it on my play list for sure
Very very slow play backed up all done no excuse except players not caring bout others on course
I think if you played more than once a week you would know there are messages on course/cart that tell you it will be at least a 4.5 hour round. Pay more attention to context clues! Also maybe focus on the game more get rid of that slice!
This isn’t just a big hitters course where long hits result in a good score. Nearly every shot on this course requires accurate distance as well as accurate aim. The majority of fairways don’t simply continue from tee to green, they all have a creek or high grass to clear or lay up before. Bunkers are all strategically placed so you can’t just blast shots without good aim to avoid them.Greens were all fast and true. This late in the season, there is a good bit of divots out there and a few ball marks on the greens, but some of the weekday rates are awesome for this caliber of course. Free grass range and a couple nice chipping greens make early arrival a smart move. Only downside is cart path only for longer than most other courses after a rain. Good idea to call ahead if uncertain
This course never disappoints. Now that we’re into the fall, it’s easy to get an afternoon tee time and move through very quickly. Played 18 by myself in just under 3 hours. If I had to complain, tee boxes are showing signs of wear, but we are late into the season with lots of play.
Not overall impressed. Glad I went in afternoon for the much cheaper rate. Not worth the morning rates
A must play in Delaware...
Great course and facility overall. I played mid-day on a weekday for $55 - that was a steal for this course. I can see why they can charge upwards of $100 for the weekend. Challenging layout with forced carries and doglegs. A course you need to play more than once because it's deceptive.
Great and scenic round
Tough course to play with Cart Path Only conditions. GPS in cart is useless then, and few on course markings to use. I always, Always, prefer a course with at least a 150 yard marker to the center. It's not that hard to add, even in these days of rangefinders (takes much of the "game" out of the game). Good view, lots of semi hidden doglegs, straight and somewhat easy 3's, great restaurant 19th hole
Gorgeous course, target golf
Beautiful course, huge layout, impossible to walk. Staff were all top notch, course was immaculate, greens were fast and hard to read. Carts with gps were super helpful for a first time round. Bring balls. You will lose them, there’s water and trees on most holes.
Got an afternoon tee time at $50 It was well worth the almost hour trip for me. The staff was extremely friendly. The course was in pristine shape and the course beat me up but I enjoyed it. I played from the black tees and it was a shot makers dream. A lot of placement golf and the greens rolled beautifully and fast. I will probably visit again to try and improve on my score
