The Preserve Golf Club At Tara
Beautiful layout but needs some work.
Would be a beautiful 5 star course with additional care. A bit rough looking and the greens need work. I totally understand "pace of play", but our foursome was spoken to and asked to speed up at the 9th hole. We waited for the group in front of us on a couple of holes and finished 9 in 2 hours. Totally ruined my game as I was the sole woman in our foursome and did not hit as far as the men. In an effort to pick up play, I picked up my ball a few times and gave up keeping score. I guess I will go back to Waterlefe.

It's too bad a great course layout has fallen on hard times or at least that's what it appears to have happened. I played here in December and thought it was just a bad time of year, but the course hasn't improved with the exception of the greens. The fairways are really in poor shape. The grass is of various types with a lot of weedy areas in the middle of the fairways. The tee boxes are really chewed up and in need of repairs. It's unfortunate as the layout is one of the best I've seen in the area, both challenging and fair. The staff is very friendly, helpful and accommodating, but unless you can get a really good deal I'd say go somewhere else for now.

The par 5's are tough especially if you don't know the course
You need to know the yardage to lay up properly. No 16 is a S shape fairway so you need to know where to land.

Forget About It
Unless you enjoy putting on top of a car hood;, Hitting irons off of dirt; blind T shots then this is not the place for you. I doubt a 10 HDCP could break 90

Challenging ... but, it's seen better days
The course is challenging with strategically placed bunkers and other hazards.
You can see that the superintendent is either on a very tight budget or simply doesn't care. Hazard markers are missing, and the course is starting to appear tired. Cart paths are in terrible condition with washouts and potholes all over the place.
We payed $40 and it was probably a $40 course for February.
It's unfortunate. I live here full time and will golf there again as a last resort.

Good Test of Golf Skills
The Preserve is a good test of your golf skills. There are challenges to over come on most holes (i.e. water, tight fairways, waste areas).
I did much better the second time that I played.

This is a extremely tough course for a high handicap golfer. Lots of water, doglegs and fast greens.

Third time I've played this course. First time in nine months. The course condition has really declined. Probably will not play again.
