Water's Edge Golf Club
Slightly over watered but in decent shape
Waters Edge always a fun play if you can get a $30 or under rate. Played long due to thick rough and fairways had less roll than expected (thus my over watering comment in the review title) and approach shots hitting the green left a huge ball mark. Course always suffers from slow play especially on the back nine most especially in the afternoon. A foursome of women had 1 1/2 holes open in front of them which resulted in an almost 3 hour back They are trying to maintain the course (lots of workers and ongoing projects) but the course gets so much play that the teeing areas are rough, greens can be bumpy - over watering, golfer scuff marks, old ball marks). 4 tee shots ended up in a divot on the fairway...that being said the course overall is in good shape with acceptable somewhat slow green speed and decently maintained sand. Just wish more folks replaced/repaired divots and ball marks properly,,,, and actually picked up their feet on greens rather than shuffling. Since you can't give 1/2 stars it's closer to 4 star than 3 star......but not by much so I'm giving the 4 star rating since the current average is 3.4.

I think the price is fair for this course, greens
could have been a little better & would have
been if a bunch of lazy people knew how
to fix ball marks.

Sometimes at the mercy of the pairing
1st time playing Waters Edge. Different than I expected. More wooded, little tighter. Enjoyed the golf course, pretty decent variety of holes. Players could do a much better job of taking care of ball marks and filling divots (not the courses fault) I unfortunately got paired with a guy who decided he had to make a negative comment and point out all the possible problems on every hole. I made the mistake early in the round of telling him I had never played there and any assistance would be appreciated. He apparently took that as a green light to negatively comment every time I hit a less than stellar shot and I shot an 81 thank God I didn't shoot 100.......Back nine I was just trying to finish so I could stop listening to the negativity Oh Well.............Waters Edge good not great course but would recommend to others

greens and teeboxs were all beat up(does anyone fix a ballmark any more),also,average golfer does not appreciate pin placements put on top or bottom of a rise on the green so you spend the day trying to figure out how hard to hit putt to get it to hole only to stop a foot short or as playing partners did 15-20 feet coming back

Despite following a outing it was a gr8 round. Pace could have been faster

Not as fun as it could be
In all honesty the course is OK but when it comes to the "fun factor" I didn't think it had it and here is why.
Almost all the greens are three tiered. So for the average golfer just hitting the green in regulation hardly secures a good look at birdie or even par. I was really disappointed in the 7th hole. It's a 180 (from the blue) par three which for most mediocre players is an iron shot that doesn't have much chance of stopping. Well The green has a low point at the front, then a plateau that might be 4 feet wide, and then another low point at the back. Well the hole was put on this very small plateau. Get real! That's not fun, and that's why I'm out there to have a good time not to play putt-putt. There should've been a windmill or a clown's mouth around that hole!

This is a beautiful golf course! Every hole is scenic and a joy to play. I can't wait to play here again.

a day at waters edge
A little disappointed fairways were in good condition greens were some of the worst I have ever seen. There were so many divots almost like some one spent the day chipping on them.we were stuck behind a twosome that did not understand while we're young.
