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.
