The condition of this golf course is easily one of the best I've seen. My expectations weren't very high but that was my mistake. Price was really good, and will make it a point to go back.

Fairways not in the greatest of shape, but the greens were decent. Winds around inlets, so there is a lot of water to deal with, especially on the back 9. Lots of great bird sightings, including several spoonbills, snowy egrets, blue herons, and coots. Unless...More

Our family of 4 played (8 & 12 year olds). There are 5 different tee boxes for any age or skill level. The course was well-manicured. No bugs as some reviewers shared.

We had a foursome and enjoyed the course and the views. A lot of water. Nice design. Would play it again.

We were here for my husband's company conference and this course hosted the golf tournament. These people were very organized and things ran so smoothly. It was very relaxing and fun.

The starter warned our group that "right is wrong" and he wasn't kidding. Hitting on the right side of the fairway really challenged our group all day. Great scenic views. Only con was the greens were just aerated.
