Odyssey Country Club is a challenging layout that was designed by Harry Bower and two-time U.S. Open winner Curtis Strange. Strange won in 1988 and 1989, putting him in the company of only six others in the century-long history of the U.S. Open. His influence is apparent in all the strategic elements of the golf course as well as the risk-reward options. This demanding layout is not exactly beginner friendly. Staying on the fairways is crucial or your ball will be met with deep rough. Water is also a prominent presence on the golf course. Twelve holes either feature a water hazards or play along the water's edge. Odyssey Country Club's 16th hole is memorable for its tricky island green, which naturally draws comparisons to the famous 17th at TPC Sawgrass.

Fivesomes!

This is a pretty nice course, but apparently they now allow fivesomes. I was behind a two some who was behind the fivesome and there were no rangers or marshalls on the course. It was brutal. If this is their practice, I will have to avoid this course in the future. Very frustrating. Unfortunately, I left my phone in the car or I would have called. But that shouldn't be necessary.

Weekday Sunrise Rider

I often play by myself before work. Even at 6am the course was in good shape relevant to the season. Greens looks great. Full staff working on the course by 530. I love layout of this course. Not a place where you are driver wedge on every whole. You have to manage the course with some midirons and smart decisions off the tee or go risk reward. For courses in the area it is always reasonably price. One downside I would say if I was forced is the white tees are way up. Should have played the blues but I followed rule of thumb for handicap.

Cold and Windy

The day was late April and when it turned overcast, it got colder than I wanted to play. The course has some nice holes and lots of challenging scenarios. Unfortunately all the on course amenities were closed. Can't wait to return in the summer.

Ok, but understaffed, and disgustingly ignorant golfers.

The course is decent and a fair value. The staff was nice. I played as a single behind two threesomes. They not only didn’t invite me to join them, they wouldn’t allow me to play through. I mentioned this to one of the staff near the turn. There were no rangers. After completing the 9th I went straight to the 10th where I sat and waited for the first threesome who came out of the clubhouse as I arrived at the tee and yelled at me to back off. When they were through, I stuck a peg in the ground only to hear more yells coming at me from the clubhouse from the next threesome. They raced to the tee, mustard dripping from their mouths, and hit, keeping me behind them. By the time I got to the 16th there was myself, a twosome behind me, and a twosome behind them all on the tee at the same time. We played the 18th as a fivesome just so we could get out of there. 5 hours to play a weekday round because of ignorant people and no course attendants? No thanks. Ug.

Good course

The course was in good shape after the storms last night. There wasn't a bunch of goose crap all over the course, like there has in the past. Pace of play was good.
