The Preserve Golf Club At Tara
Needs some attention
Great price(16.99) for a weekend morning, and I love the course. Greens seemed bumpy to look at but rolled pretty straight. Tee boxes were not cut, so they were a bit rough. We teed off at 8:30. Overall for the price, a good value. We booked a "fast" tee time deal. The group in front of us had a small child playing, and they held us up on several holes. Round took over 4 1/2 hrs. A course ranger would have been helpful.

Tara - Nice layout, decent condition, Good Value
My wife and I enjoyed playing Tara Reserve very much. Since we were one of the early time (7:30), we felt like we were on our own private course. We enjoyed the layout as the holes offered a nice variety. There is a lot of water although much of it does not come into play. My wife was a little intimidated by some of the hazards and had to skip a few shots.
The course condition can use some work, but overall we enjoyed our visit.

Greens were the worst I have played on
The greens had been punched recently but it had been long enough that the turf had recovered but they were still very rough. It is almost as if they had not rolled them a second time. It was truly like putting on a washboard. Our group made a "two putt green" rule for the round since they were so bad. There were a lot of washed out areas around the fairways as well. It's really too bad because the lay out of the course is great.

Great Day on Tara

Course needs work
Course would be fantastic if they would spend a little money on maintenance. 4 stars for pace of play because no one was there!
Fairways and greens very firm from lack of aeration. Fairways full of weeds...tee boxes pretty chewed up.
One bright spot is the greens are fast...but also bumpy. I don't find this to be a particularly difficult course, but the lack of maintenance makes it hard to enjoy. Used to be one of my favorite courses. Like some other courses in the area: won't be back until they fix it.

good price but course could use some work
Greens extremely fast, but in good shape. Fairways dotted with weeds. Tee box on "signature hole" #17, a complete mess. Course is very difficult to begin with. Then yiu throw in the lousy lies, concrete greens, and it's very tough for an average player. Best part was Ginny in the bar, and her chicken salad sandwich.

Not worth the green fees
The course has some great design features and was probably a 5-star course years ago. The course is run down - weeds everywhere, bunkers not maintained, fairways not mowed and water features overgrown. Would not return or recommend.
