  • Very strategic design. Not many courses make you work the ball off the tee as much as this one. Many dog legs and most fairways had bunkers on both sides pinching in the landing area significantly...  more »

  • The course was in great shape and it was not overly crowded. Great layout favoring precision over length. Saw 2 gators, so definitely be aware out there!
  • When I arrived the guys at the bag drop told me I was the first one and I could probably get through in about 2 and a half hours so I went in a paid and was not greeted with good customer service so I went out and hit a few putts while looking around and there being no one. I went ahead and started on #1 and on my second shot I was greeted by the starter who talked to me in a manner that I was totally shocked with wanting who told me I could go ahead and play, I told him the guys at the bagdrop said I was the first one out so I just took it upon myself to go ahead and start. He told me those guys have nothing to do with the pro shop and he smarted me off again so needless to say I won’t be going back to this course if this is how they talk to paying customers. Also the bunkers where in rough shape as so where the greens!
