Pros: Greens were new and in beautiful shape. Nice layout in a wooded area with some water.

Cons: Fairways were a bit firm and had some bare patches.

We hit this course on my 54th birthday.  Nice layout in a more forested area.


Warm Up - Grass driving range into water.  Nicely maintained.  Two level putting green for putting practice and a separate area for pitching and chipping.


Yardage book available for $12.  It is marked from the back tees and looks hand written for tournament play.


Tees - Nicely maintained and generally flat with Granite Markers showing hazards.


Greens - New greens, not sure of the grass but there was not visible grain direction.  They were running 9 - 10 and rolling nicely.


Rough - Kept fairly short with a variety of types like a rye type grass on some holes and a scrubby bermuda type on others.  Some areas had sand right under the rough that acted almost like a sand shot.  You had to be careful around the greens.


Fairways - Decent shape with some bare areas that have not grown in yet.  Narrow on a lot of holes with water on at least one side or pine trees.


Sand - Firm yet playable.


Overall layout - In a quiet are with some development housing on some holes.  The harder holes used water or dog legs to add challenge.


Views - Lots of Osprey, turkey vultures, cranes, herons and other critters like turtles and fish.  Pretty scenery.


Staff - Friendly and welcoming.


Club House - Jimmy's Bar and Restaurant was right next door.  Good food and beer on tap.


Rates - $33 during the week with cart.  Great value for such an nice course with new greens.


Overall - I would play this again definitely.
