Decent Course

Some fairways had some thin and really thin spots but overall they were in pretty decent shape. Some of the rough around the greens was really thin. The greens were in really good shape. Not real fast but not real slow. They rolled true. Pace of play was 3 hours 45 minutes.

Very Nice Track but be careful

Love the layout but hate all of the houses lining most holes. If you spray the ball you may want to check to make sure insurance is paid in full. Each of us accidentally hit into yards OB but didn’t do any damage.

Blue water Blues

Played BlueWater for the first time in 25 years, so just like 1st time. Course it’s showing age and needs upgrading. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Nice layout with a few holes facing the bay. Lots of bare areas in fairways and around greens. Got a great deal to play, so it was more than worth the price. Not high end on the Emerald Coast but I plan to return.

Cheap golf

This course wasn’t bad for what we paid. For $25-$35 you can’t expect a top tier golf course. It had a nice layout and would be perfect for a new golfer. We were the first tee time of the days so didn’t wait on anyone. This made the under-maintained course more enjoyable. The fairways and rough weren’t in great condition. It was a little odd the distance between the front and back nine. It is a 5-10 minute drive between 9s with minimal signage directing you. Overall, not a bad course for what you pay.

Muni type conditions.

So they’ve taken parts of two courses and made them into on course and closed the other 9 holes on the other two courses, from what I could tell. I played the tips, based on the scorecard yardage, and it was much shorter than that. No reflectors on the flag sticks. So laser yardage was hard to get and the yardages marked on the course were iffy at best. The greens were over seeded, sorta, and slow, so slow they wouldn’t take the break that you read on most holes. For the price, it was a good time killer, but I wouldn’t play it again.

Seems like the course is struggling

Fazio course but seems like it’s struggling. People were nice - decent value. Ready for other courses in the area.
