EXCELLENT VALUE for Play…

I came across an INSANE deal on one of the golf apps so the cost was well worth the round. Most of the holes were in great shape with a few boxes needing some attention and a couple greens were bumpy. The carts are very comfortable with cushy seats, not your typical cart seating. Staff was super friendly. There is a ‘beverage-cart’. At normal pricing this course is out of my range, but would love to play this course again. Bathrooms on the course were clean. My biggest complaint is the 9th hole being a Par 3 with a huge water hazard. No one wants to end the front with that hole, LOL! Overall the course is open, fun, and yet challenging. I’m not a great golfer by any means and this was my first time playing and shot a 101. Great scenary to look at on your ride.

***Bonus note, the restaurant opens at 11am so at the turn if you tee’d off early you’ll have to settle on what sandwiches/wraps and snacks the Pro Shop has.

DO not waist your time at the range

Everything thing was fine... course layout was fun ...the practice facility is one of the worse i have ever seen and they charge $15 for a bucket of 25 balls. The range is short and surrounded by nets and you hit off of dirt divits.. no grass to be found.

Great Course

This was a beautiful course and would hands down recommend… Con’s we’re the drink cart stopped at 4pm and they our tee time was at 3.10 so we never saw anyone. Last tee time was around 6 so they should have someone or somebody there till atleast last tee off. Also golf staff was not friendly at all which was a complete let down when I think of a resort and southern hospitality. We walked in once the day before and no one greeted us or asked if we needed anything. Next day we needed to add a player and called and they had already paired my husband with someone else so they gave a huff about that. But the course makes up for the staff
