I like the course and the par 3 selections. Course is laid out well and easy to follow and course is in good condition. Bring big spray, ton of mosquitos every where. I enjoyed the course tho and will shoot it again.

A interesting course

Has a good amount of water hazards, but no sand in the old traps. It is mostly open fairways but still the holes are challenging. All in all a fun 18 holes at very reasonable price.

Golfing groups seemed to be released to play every 5 minutes. The backups were horrible. The course itself was average in it's maintenance so I rated according to both.
