Hidden Spot

Small little 9 hole with a killer BBQ and a full bar.
Staff is very friendly. The 2 times I’ve been there the restaurant has had a beer event, lots of fun.

As for the course. Lots of up and hill and down hill. Only 3 holes over 200 yards, great for practicing your short game. Grounds are well kept and lots of trees to snake around. Will return in the future.

Perfect Par 3 course

Great course for new or casual golfers. Tee boxes need a little love but greens are in good shape. The BBQ truck on site has phenomenal BBQ.

Beautiful Day at the Garden

Awesome 9 hole course. Plenty of challenges.
Hitting over or around trees. Flag placements.
Lots of opportunity to use several clubs.
Great place for lunch after or before you play.
Take advantage of what they have to offer.

First Time Playing

Overbooked and too narrow

Of all the courses my friends and I have played, Sunken Garden was our least favorite. The course is very well maintained. However, each hole is super narrow and compact, you have to hit the ball straight every time. They overbooked the time slots and we felt rushed the entire time. The staff were walking around telling people to hurry up which made for a very poor/stressed experience. Will heavily not recommend this place

Relaxing and FUN

Great par 3 course. Greens have really improved over the last 3 months. Great course to get in 9 holes before work.
