Gorgeous course, pin placements felt tough for winter

This was my first time at Whiskey Creek and I can see why it gets such good reviews. The course is stunningly beautiful, and I can only imagine what it must play like in spring/summer. For a cold winter day the course was in great condition. The bunkers were pretty wet/compacted so I couldn't give a review of what they're like normally.

The hole layouts were varied and interesting, and were challenging without being overly penal if you took sensible lines (with the exception of 17 and 18 which were just tough). The rough was pretty deep and certainly a challenge in places. I thought the par threes were a particular highlight - they were all very different, and required thoughtful club selection and aim points. The course is extremely scenic - particularly the latter half of the front nine.

My one complaint was hole locations - very few of the hole placements today would have been conforming for a tournament, as they were either cut 5-6ft from the very edge of the green, or on fairly severe up/down/side slopes that transitioned between swales on the green. The green complexes are already challenging, and on some holes it made approach play close to impossible - and then putts lagged to 2-3ft would often continue to roll away from the hole or have severe snap on short range putts. Given the greens have been aerated and it's December, this felt a bit excessive for winter golf.

The aeration was a lot more noticeable on the greens than I was expecting, but for the most part putts rolled true, I only had two putts the whole round that were knocked offline by the aeration holes.

It is a really strong golf course, and I look forward to coming back, but I hope today's hole placements were an aberration and not the norm.

Plugged Greens

Course is beautiful and the weather turned out great. Greens were plugged and should have been a simple discount offered at point of check-in. Customer service goes a long way to obtain repeat golfers! Trying to be a goodwill Ambassador to golf friendly courses. Another rule should be for amateur golfers should pick up and move to next hole after reaching triple bogey. It will force the amateur to want to finish on the green vice out in the fairway. This will help pace of play on the weekend and also during the week on many courses.

Awesome course and beautiful setting

Great course in excellent condition. Pace of play was perfect and the course was in beautiful condition. Lots of trees so leaves are a factor this time of year but it was still an incredible time.

Below expectations

Started behind two slow groups and had to pass eventually.

Not a good course to play as a single. I try to play on off hours when courses wont be busy but even on a Tuesday afternoon this place was backed up.

The course looks great but the fairways were soft (over watered) and a couple tee shots plugged into the ground. Other shots would have zero roll out and leave pitch marks in the fairway.

Driving range is nice but it was "mats only." Chipping area looks sad and isnt manicured. The practice putting green is kind of silly as it has way more undulation than any green on the course.

All in all this place does not meet five star golf course expectations.

Not Back But Better

Was pleased to learn Blue Mash and Waverly Woods have been absorbed by Whiskey Creek and are adjusting their product and service delivery to be consistent with the majority. Should be a mutually productive and beneficial merger.
