Worse 9 holes of your life

Labeled holes not green because the greens look like they have been chewed through by animals. There was one hole were the green wasn't completely destroyed. I get the layout because of the location but that's no excuse. I paid for 4 people to play 2 adults one child (9 years old) and one just wanted to drive the cart. The guy tried to charge me extra for her driving even though we paid for additional players already. Then he tried to charge cart use fee. Let me explain this place you only need your pitching wedge and your putter. The entire course can/should be walked but the price I paid said cart included. Upon arriving the guy tried to say we'll you didn't pay a for the cart so I had to pull it up to prove it even though he had the reservation from golf now which is where I booked. Overall I'll never go here again. Ended up paying 60 bucks for 2 adults one child. The golf carts also don't require a key. My guess is because they are so junk they wouldn't make it anywhere had to basically push start our cart on the way back.

Not a beginners course

Yes, it is a par 3 course. Yes, it's a chipping and putting training course. But to say it is a beginners course with multiple water hazards, holes directly next to each other and a drop off into a creek or apartments on either side, is misleading. Get ready to lose at minimum 5 boles if you are an actual beginner. It is not a forgiving course if you at not trained to hit high and short shots. A traditional golf course with par 3, 4 and 5 may take a beginner longer but would be more forgiving.

Water balls

This is a very short par 3. Most holes are 65 yards or less. Back 9 has a 80 & 90 yard hole. Front 9 all water hazards. Plan on loosing balls. Very easy to over shoot holes. Greens are rough. I used a pitching wedge and putter all day.

Outing w/ Son

This is a great little 18 hole Par 3 course. Perfect for working on your short game.
The only issue was checking in. We booked on-line through Tee-Off. The booking clearly stated 18 holes
w/ Cart. When we checked in the person behind the counter said that the website was wrong and tried to charge us extra for a cart. After approx. 10 minutes of arguing and showing him my phone reservation, that said "with cart" he finally said go ahead and take a cart.
This counter person. Freely admitted their website had not been updated since the course opened.
This is not fair to potential players and the poor soul working the counter who has to try and charge prices the owner sets, and the potential players who has did their due diligence and wanting to play at the published rates.
Other than that my son and I enjoyed the round of play and the challenges of the course.
Of the 18 holes 8 has water that definitely comes into play. The two island greens were very nice and challenging.
I highly recommend this course to have an outing with friends.
The rates are reasonable no matter which rate they choose to charge.

Family fun practice course

This course isn't a typical course. You won't see tee offs. Its a chip and putt course. Was very fun and surprisingly difficult. The short pars (under 100 yards) throw you off your game. Its a challenge. Chances are you're going to be in water hazards so use older balls or practice balls. Had a lot of fun.

Tee boxes are non existent. Unless you want to power putt 60-75 yards don’t go here. No hole was over 80 yds. Plenty of friendly crackheads smoking in/ around course. As well as water hazards with the ph balance of battery acid. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

Most fun I’ve had in awhile

Staff were very friendly, and the course is in great shape. Great for beginners, or avid golfers who just want a change of pace. I’ve been playing for years, and it was such a refreshing experience, and a great way to practice short game shots.

8 force carries but great time

I took my two boys ages 7-8. They loved it. The only issue is that on 8 holes there is a force carry over water. After a few attempts I just let them chip from the green side. Otherwise. For the money it’s a great experience for all golfers

Proceed with caution.

This is a course for beginners. However, the holes are extremely close together & many players have little to no knowledge of golf etiquette. It was very dangerous and the pace of play was horribly slow. Do not recommend.
