Course Reviews


A very nice course. I really liked the mix of par 3s and 4s. It is a "thinking" course, you can't just bomb driver on the par 4s. There are risk/reward opportunities. You do need to be a good putter as the greens are very curvy. If you play here, be aware that a lot of the golfers seem to be casual players. I witnessed someone cut a cookie in the fairway with their golf cart. Also a lot of the fairways are pretty close. On several occasions people would play off our fairway to the adjoining hole while we were on the tee box. And one time a tee shot from the adjacent par 3 sailed over our heads while we were on the tee box, it bounced off the cart path, hit a van, then rolled down the parking lot to come to rest at the base of a condo.

This has always been a great executive course with long par 3s and short par 4s. But don't be fooled this course is tough. It is very narrow in places and has many elevation changes, every tree ,bunker and lake are in just the right spot to punish a bad shot. The greens can be a bit slow but there is plenty of break and they roll very true. The staff go out of their way to make sure you have good time. the place is a great value and you are off the course in 4 hours. I f your new to the game stick to the oaks course few people play to there handicap here its that tough and the weather can be very hot. Sadly the
restaurant and snack bar have slipped badly and its a real shame. Food in the restaurant is expensive and weekend service is bad! The hostess is about sixty and rude at best. They must have 50 tables but even getting a beer after your round is a pain. The servers are also older ladies and are slow and unhappy. Unless you like 30 dollar buffets eat down the street at castle creek of go find a hooters. Service and food was this resorts strong
point for years so the down turn is really sad. Leave after your round you will love the place as I said the golf is first class

The course itself is beautiful. The pro shop staff was very nice. The only problem was the golf marshall would not keep up the speed of play. The group before us was allowed to play 2 to 3 balls EACH player, and this was a foursome in front of us. This was even when the golf marshall was at their hole. Bummer, but the only complaint. Well worth the $15 dollar twilight rate for walking. I will play it again.
