Course Reviews


This could be a great course but is in need of some rehab. Many of the greens feature bald spots due to some sort of mold or fungus and most bunkers really need to have their sand replenished - too thin and hard-packed. If these defects are addressed, this could be a five-star course. The setting is superb and a great deal of mounding make for a beautiful layout.

A gem off the beaten patch. This is a fairly flat course that works back over itself in muni-style geograpghy, but gets its characters form some well-placed water hazards. The par 5 15th is a beauty dogleg left wrapped around a large lake. I'll head back to play this one again.

I can only give it 3 stars.

Pros:
Overall a nice course. From the whites its pretty forgiving. The blues will add a bit of risk to the holes. A pretty good layout although the greens seem a bit basic. Some hills and water come into play making play better than the average flat course.

Cons:
A bit overpriced. The greens need work.

Overall:
If I lived in the area, and it costed $10 less to play, I may make it my regular course. But, I live an hour away so I will be driving the extra time to go to a far superior course in tifton, The Golf Course of Southern Georgia (a 4.5 star course).

a great deal for the price. well maintained and a fun course. watch out for the gator's.

BRUTUAL BUT BEAUTIFUL

THIS IS AN EXCELLENT COURSE, IF YOU DON'T HIT IT STRAIGHT YOU ARE IN FOR A LONG ROUND. THIS COURSE IS WELL MANICURED!
