Fantastic Course, A Hidden Gem!
Fantastic golf course, conditions were exceptional. The golfing experience and uniqueness of the course immediately vaulted it into my top 5 in the state. The course definitely has the "up north" feel, but with a distinctly "southern coast" influence. There are quite a few holes that, if you dropped someone off that didn't know where they were, would immediately think they were playing a course in the coastal Carolinas or Georgia. Tall pines and hardwoods, large waste areas and wetlands, and dunes and bunkering that are unlike any other course in the state, with maybe the exception of The Grande in Jackson being close behind. The course feels very natural in the sense that I didn't feel any holes were shoehorned in or contrived, each one is different and many are very memorable. Because of it's location, the course is relatively flat, with subtle undulations. Greens are large and receptive, and were in beautiful shape. The fairways were also in great shape, and are well proportioned - landing areas are generous but not huge.

Very challenging, monstrous sand traps, huge waste areas. Beautiful and fun, if you're hitting well. If not, bring lots of balls.
