Good bang for the buck

The staff demeanor is excellent including cart personnel and especially the receptionist (Christina). They go out of their way to be courteous and helpful. A big negative, especially for newbies, is the lack of hole diagrams on either the scorecard or on signposts. This needs attention as I wasn't sure of either drive direction or hazards on many holes. Also the "no cart" signage needs attention on many holes as carts will die for no apparent reason quite a bit away from greens.

review

nice course, wasn't too hard except for the par 3's which were the most difficult I've ever played (they were longish and not forgiving at all--if you didnt hit the green your ball was gone). Staff was super friendly. price was appropriate. no one else on course when I was there late afternoon. marsh setting was lovely

Enjoyable to play

Had no idea I could have saved $30 by booking online until told by the server after I paid. There is insufficient signage directing to some holes. No Marshall on course and no beverage cart, yet small coolers are not allowed. The scorecards do not depict or silhouette the holes and there are few range markers with no GPS in cart. If you just come to play, then its a good deal, but don't be looking for amenities Had the course not been in such good shape, the rest of the comments would indicate 3 star

Golf course is challenging and well maintained. Greens are in good shape as well as the bunkers. Scenic views on course is a bonus you can't get everywhere.
