Perfect weather

Course was in good shape but pace was slow

Played the course pre-Covid and it was not in good shape at all but decided to try again since a friend said the conditions improved. I was happy to see that the course was in better shape and looked like work had been done since my last visit.

The problem I had was the pace of play was really slow. It took 5 hours to play the round and I never saw a marshal the whole time we were on the course.

Also the food place closed at 3P which is really early especially on a weekend. We wanted to get something to eat/drink and there were several other people there asking the same thing.

Just ok

The last time I played was in 2020. The course seems a bit rundown now. However, coming from a cold weather climate it was good to just swing a club again. The front 9 greens we’re aerated but the back 9 greens were ok.
The price through Tee Off was appropriate for this course.

Surprisingly good shape

A few years ago the locals had told me this course was very dry and not in that good of shape. I finally played there for the first time and was surprised to find it in great shape. The fairways were lush and the greens were in good shape. Maybe they've received a lot of rain recently. Regardless, I didn't see any dry spots. The bunkers were a little hard. They didn't have the soft white sand high end courses use. The pace of play was a bit slow. We got stuck behind a fivesome of seniors. No reason to rush. Everyone's on island time.

Save Your Money

I shouldve listened to the Reviews for this course cause they are true

Charged me extra $25 for my wife to ride in cart
Too much sand on greens
Workers on almost every hole
Fairways not in Great Shape
No cart Girl or Beverage stand open
Only about 6 holes you can see the Ocean
And the Lady checking in, Personality of a Bran Muffin

Do yourself a favor and spend alittle more and play elsewhere!
