Loved the course and property!

Friendly staff, nice amenities and a fun course to play. Not overly difficult, but it matches up quite nicely with my declining golf skills. For me that means not overly long, but still a challenge.

Short and sweet

SM is in great shape. Greens are quick and true. This course will sharpen your short game with narrow fairways lined with 40’ palms. Most of the greens are small and can be subtler reads with gentle breaks. Off at 1:30 and finished at 5:15.

Just lovely!

My husband and I played here on 2/21. The course is amazing and well maintained, and the staff was welcoming and gracious. Shout out to Geoff who gave us great advice and a good laugh before we tee’d off. I’ll definitely hold there again!

Yardage marker stakes

Course in very good condition but they really need to add yardage marker stakes on every hole. The yardage markers placed in fairways are very hard to find!

Super chill course

We had no idea what to expect when we arrived with this being our first time. What we found were very friendly staff, a relaxed atmosphere and tons of fun. Here are our details in no particular order: We started off well with the cart guy bringing our cart to us in the parking lot. So kind of them! And, the starter was able to get us onto the course before our tee time, which rarely happens for us. This is a newer course, its very short and has narrow fairways. You need to be able to hit straight shots as fairways run parallel to one another. There's definitely a lot of, "Fore" being yelled. No driving range for warm ups, only cages. Very walkable. We were a threesome and we were in a cart with our 3rd walking. No issues. Course was in great shape and the greens were good. Sadly the food situation wasn't great. No snacks except two kinds of Doritos and to eat was either a sandwich or a hot dog. We opted for the hot dogs and they were lukewarm and reminded us of bologna. They had a cute little outdoor tiki bar that was open when we arrived at 10:30, but when we made the turn at 1, it was closed. This was on a Sunday on a three day weekend. We were bummed. There are just two par 5's, lots of par 3's on the front nine and just one par 3 on the back. We feel like this is a course for older folks or someone who wants to work on their short game. There is no hitting bombs here, ha ha! Super fun day playing this course and we will definitely be back.

Pleasant surprised

Course was in fabulous Condition, tee to green. . The only negative would be their lack of a legitimate practice range, and putting green. Didn’t stay for the food. Would definitely come back again.
