Good place to play

Course condition was very good.
Pace of play was good, we teed off at 7:30 and finished by 11:00.
Can’t rate amenities cause of Covid-19 restrictions.

Course needs attention

While other courses have had maintenance issues, this course has had no course management in keeping up with maintaining tee boxes, fairways, and greens. I have only seen one course in worse/similar shape this year. We had a one-hour tee off time delay due to frost in the morning. The starter, who has been with Water's Edge for years, was pleasant to chat with during the wait. However, there are no rangers on the course. Hole #10 and #11 took roughly 70 minutes to play with 3-4 groups backed up at each tee box...unacceptable! Groups were even calling it a day because they did not want to wait. We always liked this course, but likely not to return for at least a few years.

Complete Lack of Control

Unexpectedly perfect weather in October made for a very busy day, but they were completely unprepared and had a complete lack of control. First off, there were no carts available and we had to wait for groups to come in to clamor over their carts. We were there 30 minutes early and teed off 10 minutes late. There was no starter so that was a free for all. The course was somehow during all of this still allowing walk ins with no reservations despite being booked. The tee time before my foursome was a foursome that were apparently strangers, so since there was no starter they just decided that they'd split into two twosomes rather than playing together as 1 group. On an already fully saturated course, injecting ANOTHER group into the tee time before mine ended up making for exceptionally slow play. We got through 13 holes before having enough and left. Very disappointing. We will not be back.

Good God for a great price

Good God for a great price,
The reservation was premade online, the staff in the clubhouse was very welcoming and assuring our group of amenities and necessities available.
AfternoonPrice was perfect and ended at a perfect time also, the back 9 / 4 out of the nine holes were roped off and slowed down things a little bit.
For the special price it is well worth playing 18 and riding,

Good course, horrible conditions

Most courses are a little worn this time of year, however Waters Edge was beat up. There was a grass restoration project going on in the fairways that made it difficult to hit from. Patches of dead grass and holes everywhere. The greens were worn down as well. A little disappointing for me as I have heard from several people it’s a nice course. The conditions we played in would say otherwise. I will give it another shot next year in hopes the fairways and greens can recover

Never any single or triple T-Times ...Haven’t played yet

This is more of a message to the course operators to allow single players, I often play on short notice and just get paired up, but this course refuses.

When I get to finally play..... after they allow more leniency, I’ll remove This and write actual review

Great potential

This course could be a real gem. it has a good layout but the fairways and some greens are really beat up. Pace of play was fair, and not enforced. nice people. Overpriced for current condition.

Fun track

This was a really good course for the conditions. A lot of rain the past couple days, so the course was very wet. But the course itself was in good shape for the condition. I can’t fault a course for nature. Great layout and super tough greens. Definitely will play again.

Poor Conditions

Terrible conditions. Fairways were in awful shape and poor drainage system. Rained the day prior but should have been dry by the time we played and everything was soaked.

What happened to this place?

Course is in horrible shape. It’s a crime to charge what they do for the condition it’s in. Such a shame because it’s a great layout. I used to love this course but I won’t play it again until they get it in much better shape.
