First and LAST time I play here.

I didn't notice that the Golfnow.com price ($36) did not include a cart. (MY mistake.) That was another $20! So at $56.00 this was the WORST value I've experienced in the 1 -1/2 years using Golfnow.com. I have NEVER written a bad review for a Golfnow booking until now. The front nine was a joke! Boring layout with terrible fairways and garbage tee boxes on many holes. Mud bogs all over the fairways and rough areas. Fairways had very little grass in most of the landing areas. You wind up hitting off grass so thin it was like hitting off dirt/mud much of the time. Greens were OK but somewhat bumpy and slow. Back nine had much better layout and better fairway conditions but still had mud areas scattered around the fairways and rough areas. $56 for this course as a "Hot Deal" at 12:50 PM was a total rip off! I wouldn't play here again if it was free!

This is a very nice course; however, there needs to be a lot of maintenance done. They seem to have a problem with their irrigation system and there is a lot of very wet areas where there shouldn't be.

A Great Play

This is a great course to play. Short but makes you practice your par 3 play. Greens are good for public course. Walked the course and played in 2hours and 7 minutes. Thanks.

Not too shabby

Nice layout, friendly people, good amenities, and reasonable conditions (greens were pretty bumpy but overall pretty good). The pace of play at St Marks can be an issue but we managed to finish today in exactly 4 hours.

Beautiful Day for a Walk

First time playing St. Marks, decent price for golf and was able to play at a good pace. Course is pretty tight off the tee, so target golf is a must. Not too many stunning views other than the 13th tee. Would play again if in the area again!

Friendly course

Really enjoy this course. Good value. Rough can be tough. Especially in the early morning when still wet. Todays round was under 4hrs! Whens the last time that happened?

Absolutely recommend.
