Nice layout. Poor mgmt

Greens have gotten bad since NOBODY makes any effort to repair ball marks on green, and mgmt dies NOTHING to police or encourage basic player ettiquette. Likewise for fairway divots but less of an effect on your game.

Little if no marshall presence on course lately.... cutbacks ?

Island Golf Day

I enjoyed the challenge the course offered. All aspects of your game are tested here, so you must hit greens to give yourself a shot at par unless you like being stressed out trying to recover.

The greens are not easy, so stay below the holes and putt up hill if the pin is located on a sloped position.

The wind can be the negative to this golf club, so learn quickly what clubs to use down wind and against it.

Great course & lunch!

Course: great overall conditions, great conditioned tee boxes, greens are great. Overall course is very nice. Lunch: very fresh, good course food...we ordered ahead & overall good. Drink cart was well stocked, cold beer & the Rita's were good. Staff upon checking us in was very accommodating to our 4some plus 1 rider. The outdoor music playing in the chipping area sets a good vibe for the round, great job guys! We will be back!

Great bang for your buck

Great time out at Moody! Course is difficult with all the marsh and water making you have to hit the fairway but the greens are full and roll true. Highly recommend.
