Excellent and challenging course!
This was my first time playing this course. I will be back for sure! Everything is in great shape. The whole course has greened out. Lots of challenging holes. Water on just about every hole. Some of the water hazards come into play, while most skirt the edges of the course. The greens are a little slow for my liking. But you do have large greens to work with. Some holes have great views of the river & marsh. Hole # 5 in particular. The green backs up to the river. Even the driving range was nice with greens to hit towards. And big yardage markers. They did have the tee box closed for maintenance. We were told to hit irons in front of the tee box.
The golf carts were the best I have ever used. I've never reviewed the golf carts before, but these are money well spent. There is plenty of storage, along with a GPS down low. It is a yardage only. But it does tell you the distances to hazards as well as the distance of the hole. The carts automatically slow down @ street crossings. There is a small cooler on the side. The basket area is deep & will hold alot. The ride is much better than some of the cheaper golf carts. If you stray in an area not authorized the cart will play dead. You have to back out, only reverse will work. I tried it on a par 3 just to see what it would do. The bathrooms on the course are well maintaned. Very clean. You have a key to unlock the door on you cart key chain.
Only descrepency I noticed was a mix up on the scorecard. Hole 10 was a par 4, but the card shows par 3. Hole 13 is a par 3, but the card shows a par 4.

THIS COURSE IS VERY CHALLENGING.
YOU NEED TO PLAY THIS COURSE MORE THAN ONCE; IT IS DIFFICULT TO SEE ALL THE TROUBLE ON COURSE. TEES, FAIRWAYS & TRAPS IN VERY GOOD SHAPE. GREENS WERE A LITTLE BUMPY BUT CONSISTANT. GREAT VALUE FOR $45.00 OR UNDER.

Course demands shot accuracy
Scenic course. In good shape. Not a grip and rip course. Shot placement and accuracy are necessary.

This course has some beautiful features.
This course has potential to be amazing. It requires the ability to manage your game. Shot placement is essential. The greens are rolling with some slope. This course would be easier the second time because you would know how to play it. The staff are friendly and accommodating.

This course was a disappointment
There was alot of ground under repair. The course design was not friendly ~ ie.1st tee- a par 5 -with tall dune grass blocking the view of the green (the #1 handicap hole) The score card was printed on thin paper with no diagrams~ nor were there hole diagrams at the tees.

If kept up Awesome Course, Challenging!
Challenging course but greens were in poor condition after a few years of neglect and they seemed to be working on them.
We would go back

The course is challenging and in good shape.
There have been a number of improvements to this course since the last time I played there. The course is in good condition and has a good look.

Excellant course and great price. Play it again in a minute. It is as challenging as you want to make it with five different Tee selections.

This is a nice course with great potentials to come.
This course is being rennovated with some great features. Two of the par threes are short approximately 118 yds from the whites, but it's so easy to mis-play these holes that can be taken for granted. Great layout with some good hole locations. I really enjoyed it.

I haven't played this course in twenty years. They have done a great job. The layout is still fun, always one of the best. My only complaint is all the pampas grass they have planted. I hope they no what they are doing, there must be one thousand plants.

New owners are working hard to improve the course condition and improve the overall looks of the course.
The course has a lot of positive improvements being made. The greens are in good condition and the fairways are good. Overall the course is a very nice course with a very friendly staff. Very good value for the price of play.

Unique & Challenging Course
This is a unique course that has many various hazards (Sawgrass, Sand, Water) and was in great shape. You can tell a lot effort has been put into the course and while it is challenging it also was very fun. The GPS in the cart was a nice addition and the staff was very friendly. If your looking for something different that your run of the mill course this is it.

Looks like the owner of this golf course hit the lottery, and spent too much of his money on silly things at this course. There is too much saw grass on the fairways (who does this),too much on the perimeters. I will never go back to this course. I have played it several times in the past, but they now have changed it for the worse. Not just my opinion, three of my friends said the same.

Very nice and interesting course. Some very unique holes
We enjoyed the course and found it very beautiful. This is a little off the beaten track but definitely worth a little effort.
