Has that old course European seaside feel

This course has it's challenges. It's well worth the price. It reminded me of some of the courses around the British Isle's. Depending on the days, expect back ups, and ALWAYS expect to be paired up if you are in a two-some or solo..

Ok at best

I mean to be honest they have good greens no bad patches on them. Holes are a little close I feel like for the area they could expand. For my first time playing there I wasn’t at all like completely wowed. I know courses closer to berkley that are wayyy nicer and a better price too. But if you live close then I’d say it’s a regular course for you but I drive an hour and personally I didn’t think it was worth it. But nice course. 3/5 for me.

A course with character

First time playing this course and I was impressed! Loved the course conditions
Tee boxes -8.5/10
Greens- 10/10
Fairways -10/10
The course has a lot of character with all the heather surrounding greens and bunkers and a few water holes as well. The only problem with the course is that some holes are pretty tight together (almost got hit many times) can’t blame the course for the bad golfers lol. Other than that this course is a GEM. A course like no other that I’ve played.

Disappointed

I love this course and want to play it. The only problem is they require you to have 4 on the weekends or they will not let you play. If you try to call and book less than 4 they tell you to book it online. Most ridiculous policy I've ever heard of.

Staff :(

Really unfriendly and treated my group of 4 as an inconvenience rather than paying customers. Travel around the state during the summer playing different golf courses and not many experiences like this in dealing with the staff. Felt mostly uncomfortable after initial interaction. Ran into Tom the GM to ask if I could get some advice for my days round and was told “yeah don’t be slow” without stopping to even acknowledge our presence. Really poor. Course was average. Decent layout but many options in the area. Won’t be back

course is fine

course is generally in good shape. they recently cut the normally tall grass between holes and it seems to have improved pace of play

biggest complaint is that most of the carts are in bad shape.

Excellent course - but pace of play sucks!

5+ hour rounds are all too common on this course - the group behind us was 2-3 holes behind the group in front of them, and no rangers going around to speed up their play.

Course itself, however, was excellent. Wide fairways, greens were in great shape - other than the pace of play, had a great experience here.

To overbooked

The the course was in very good shape. The pace of play was terrible pushing out people right on top of each other. Most holes there are three groups on the hole, while the Ranger sat in his cart and remarked about how slow it was. The round was over 6 hours
