Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments A nice wide open course, it is very easy to make the fairways here. Being in a rural area the course is surrounded by woods that can be troublesome for righties who have difficulty hitting straight. Just enough water in the right places to add a bit of a challenge.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments I play this course at least once a week and for the most part it is in good shape. The exception to this is wild hogs. Yes I said wild hogs- they come out of the surrounding woods at night and root around looking for food. While they seem to be respctful in that they don't tear up tee boxes, fairways or greens much they do seem to love to dig great big holes in the slopes leading up to the bunkers. So.....hit straight and stay away from the bunkers and you won't have to deal with this .....natural hazard?
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments All of the staff here is very pleasant and attentive. There is a group of us who play as an informal league and the Fairwinds has worked it out that we pay only $10.00 for as many holes as we can get in after 4pm. During the summer here in Florida there's no problem for a foursome to get 18 holes in if they can stand the humidity & heat of the late afternoons after working all day.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Driving range, practice greens, very nice pro shop and small food and beverage facility are good. There is one restroom out on the course but a second would be nice.
