Course Review and Comments

A mixture of great and terrible. Unnecessary trees in the fairway on 4,5,7,9,10,12,16,17. Greens that have too much slope for how fast they roll making some putts impossible to hold the green. On 5 they need to put in a fairway bunker to stop shots that land in the middle of the fairway to veer into the pond.
However all of the par threes are pretty great and the facilities (practice, pro shop and club house) are excellent.
Overall the design is awful. 12 is arguably the worst hole I have ever played. This course will make you not enjoy golf because you will hit a great shot right down the middle only to be in jail because of a scrub oak that acts like a windmill on mini golf course is inexplicably planted in the fairway. Its members will try to lawyer away the course's bad layout with some iteration of "you have to control your ball". Ignore these people, they know not what they say.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments Trees in the fairways. That's right IN the fairways. Gimmicky greens and slanting fairways that ruin tee shots. You can play well and hate your score because of bad breaks.
