So, so

When you pay $350 plus and the wife only has a porta-pottie to use on the course, it is not good.

Higher Expectations

I had higher expectations considering this course hosted the ‘Big Break’ event. Range balls were old albeit the gent was super nice there. Range was small and off the mats.

Course was poorly marked for directions to and from each hole. Sand traps were crusty and clay.

Fairways and greens were marginal.

Good layout, always scruffy

This course has historically been. under- maintained.
Tee boxes and bunkers have been on par with your local public track. Looks like Troon Golf is trying to get it up to proper standards. Lots of potential here.

Pace of play - slow

It felt the course was overbooked and this led to a poor experience- course was good - it was just not a great experience

Pathetic pace of play, zero marshaling, bad bunkers

By the 6th hole there were 4 groups on the same hole. A group a couple in front of us had no idea how to play golf. One of them took 5 shots in the same bunker and never raked out. We called for a Marshall and no rever showed. Cloth liner showing through sand in bunkers. Benign layout. Greens were in good shape. They insist carts be back by 6 PM. You’ll never finish if you have a tee time later than 1:30. And
