A few too many doglegs

Overall a good experience. Great golf for the price. A lot of tight fairways, not very forgiving if you miss. Some very challenging holes. The holes along the bay especially pleasant.

Ok for the money.

Course has some nice holes but wasn’t in the greatest shape. Some greens on the second nine were a little rough. Price was low and enjoyed the round.

Tight fairways and lots of trees

Many trees on a lot of holes and plenty of sand. Challenging course but very nice.

Ok to get swings in, but...

Course is in fair condition- lots of rough spots, but generally playable. Need to keep it in the fairway as just off is in someone’s backyard. More sand than water hazards. Inordinate number of doglegs to fit the course in to the land available. Course probably most appealing to mid to high handicappers (of which I am one) but that also contributes to slow pace of play. Good deal on Golfnow. Folks in clubhouse super friendly and helpful. If you’ve not played here before, be sure and get directions on how to get from front nine to back nine- as noted in other reviews, it’s a LONG cart ride.
