Rated 5 out of 5 by gdietz50 1757 - Challenging Course
Played 1757 this past Sunday and I can tell you this is a must play for anyone looking for a challenge.
The overall condition of the course for mid August was very good. The tee boxes, fairways, and greens were all in very good shape. Greens rolled true and above average for speed. Fairways were well maintained and very green. As one would expect, the rough off the fairways was pretty burnt (dormant) out.
After the first few holes my impression of the course was that it was wide open. I quickly found out that this was not the case. This course really challenges you to make accurate shots both on the tee box and fairways. Anything outside of the first cut of rough is either going to be lost due to the length of the grass, or it's going to be marked with RED or WHITE stakes. Looking at some of the past reviews where people commented on bringing lots of extra golf balls is not far from the truth. I lost more balls that day than I have in 10 years. Bottom line is, like any other course, if you can keep your ball in the fairway, you can score on this course.
What will bring me back to 1757 is the facility and the staff. From the time we checked in at the Pro Shop to when we left the restaurant/bar, everyone treated us like they appreciated our business. And to me, that's the easiest way to get me to come back and play.

Extremely challenging course, water on 15 of the 18 holes, fescue throughout, must be very accurate both off the tee and with irons. Only complaint is that the pace was slow nearly a five hour round on a Sunday afternoon teed off at 3 at was fighting the sun to finish. Beautiful practice range and facilities all around a very nice course.

Had an incredible time playing this lush, beautiful course. Took us a long time but worth every minute. Make sure to bring an extra couple boxes of balls because this course will take many of them from you. If you've got the skill and the money, 1757 is an excellent choice for you.

Good course with plenty of trouble, which requires accurate shots to targets on several holes.

It's hard to beat for the price. Staff are friendly and food is good.
The course will make you think about your shots but does give you a chance to shoot a lower score.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sliptak a bit pricey but excellent course - not for walkers!
I played my first round at 1757 this week. I'd had a business lunch there a month or so ago and the place looked gorgeous (food was outstanding and staff was awesome). The course itself was in GREAT condition but we'd had a large amount of rain the day before so it was cart path only which took away some strokes both from being annoyed about that and also for trekking across the fairway only to discover I'd selected the wrong club for the lie or distance.
Having said that, the greens were fantastic - rolled super true and extremely consistent from green-to-green. The fairways were like carpet. The rough was penal (probably longer than usual because of the rain)
Pace of play was OK for the first nine but (it was late in the afternoon - teed off at 2:40 on Sunday) the back was jammed up with long waits on every shot .... again, very annoying.
I generally walk the courses I play but try to ride the first time at a new course. When I heard it was Cart path-only I nearly walked (they young gents working the carts thought it was walkable) but am EXTREMELY glad that I did not. There are only one or two hills on the course but the distance from the clubhouse to the first and tenth tees has got to be at least a quarter mile. Many holes have just as much distance from green to tee - would be fun to walk but you would never keep up the pace of play or stay with those in carts. Leave your pull carts at home for this one folks.
Also, there's only one or two holes on the course where water does not come into play so make sure pay attention - it's not obvious on many shots that a water hazard cuts that deeply into the fairway, for example.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mike9723 Good staff, course is not very good
Too many gimmicky holes, lots of driver and less then 100 yards to the green for the next shot, greens run nice although no one seems to repair ball marks for some reason, staff was nice and friendly, I just did not like the course layout at all for a mid to high priced round I did not feel the value was there.
