It is a place to pay golf. Comfortable, good layout and greens. Some holes are very long. Overall, my regular course.

I played in a tournament here (for the 5th year in a row). I can't tell you how disappointed I am with this course. I always have been. This is definitely the LAST time I will EVER play this course for as long as I live. Just not impressed with the tee boxes (lumpy with divots, not level), greens were good but overall, that couldn't help this course. There's a reason it's called "waterview" and it's not the view of the water on the course. Probably named that because of the water found all over the place that just puddles everywhere (next to tee boxes, around tee boxes, in the fairways, around greens, you name it). I'm surprised I wasn't eaten alive by the mosquitoes since there was so much water everywhere.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Better courses for less nearby

Slow play, twosomes not paired. We had 2 twosomes in front of us and a twosome behind us. Marshalls all over the course but don't seem to be doing anything to speed up play. But main problem is the cart signs out 100 to 140 years in the fairway. you either park and walk up and hit and come back or go to the green and walk back. Most all of the courses in our area have either no cart signs or around 50 years at the most. We have complained but no results. What is so important about that 100 years. This is a great place to play but this cart sign thing is a problem.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Most of the tee boxes were absolutely horrible due to water all over the ground. Couldn't find a dry spot to tee up on most tee boxes. A few par 4's are long enough to warrant a par 5 for short hitters. Greens were like putting on concrete. Ball marks all over the greens. Some sand traps were still wet.

Major problem on this course has been slow play and one of the main reasons could be fixed by the course. The cart signs are set on a lot of holes around the 100 yard mark. This leads to leaving cart and walking 50 yards and back or driving to green and walking back. This and cart path only are the 2 major issues on most of the courses we play and these are the 2 complaints for senior golfers.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

In spite of these tough times (oe maybe because of them) Waterview has gone up 5 dollars on their senior rates.

Tough course for short hitters. Has 4 four pars over 400, but all are open so you can run up a fairway wood if necessary. Wide open with little water. Except for the length, its very playable. Great greens. Fairway are often wet.

There was extensive work being done off of the fairways when I played the back 9. Watering of overseed made the cart paths and some areas of the fairways treacherous. Layout of the course was nice though and I would play it again. Top quality greens!

At 7200 yards from the tips, this course will test every club in your bag. It has generous fairways and fast undulating greens. The staff is curtious and friendly. The prevailing wind is from the South and makes those North to South holes... long already... exceptionally long. I like the course.

Would travel: 30 -60 miles
Bottom line: I would play again
