It’s been let go.

Novelty layout with mostly blind tee boxes, long rides between holes and very sloping greens makes for backlogs. There was no sand in any bunkers, not bad sand, I mean the bunkers were cracked up mud and dirt that resembled a construction site more than a golf course and none were marked ground under repair. Fairways and greens were in good condition though. Booked as a foursome but our fourth cancelled so they sent a single with us but wouldn’t refund the one extra green fee. It’s clear they are hurting for money. Would have been a good value at $45 but wouldn’t pay full rate.

Good Times!

A friend and I played 18 holes at TW this past Friday; we were paired with a nice couple, village residents. Everything was awesome except our scores but who cares when the weather is perfect and you're having fun! Look forward to playing TW again.

Long cart drive

Yes, the first thing comes to my mind is cool long cart rides. The course feels premium. Nice greens and other obstructions on course make it entertaining to play. Enjoy

Judge the course not the condos

Coarse has changed over the years and so has its surroundings. Look past the development and remind yourself why you came to Thundering Waters. Great value premium golf. Hole#1 is obviously a butcher job to make way for development but aside from that ... its a great golf experience for the price.

Great course

Only negative was very slow greens. Also the par 3’s from the blacks were all about 200 yards. A little annoying when the course is only 6100 yards from the that tee block.

Terrible customer service

Ridiculous service behaviour. Was sworn at by the starter, and very aggressive when directions were being followed. Ruined the mood for the day.

Lacking in some key areas

Firstly our cart ran out of battery around the 11th hole. It would go if it was flat at about 0.25 mph but if there was a hill...no chance. Called the clubhouse twice, nobody answered so we resorted to help from the guy we were playing with to give us a 'boost' up the hills. Very short course with a lot of quirks and tricks, tees were beat up but the greens were in OK shape for a mid afternoon round on a daily fee course.
