Requires control and accuracy, a good but fair test. If you hit the ball where you want it you can score well but if you don't there are lots of penalties that will add up on the scorecard.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area

Played here 10-26-11, and got lucky: they were having Player Appreciation Day, and the fare was only $34, and included a very nice lunch. Well worth the cost: usually the price is $20 or more higher, and it's worth that, too.

Course is fairly typical of beach/resort areas: flat, with palm trees, scrub, and water. Layout challenge comes from moguls, bunkers, sloping fairways, and undulating greens. Make sure to read the advice on the scorecad before playing each hole. It took me about four holes to get reasonably comfortable on the greens, between speed, grain, and slope.

Conditions were excellent for October: one fairway (#17) had some patchy grass, but the others were in good shape Bunkers were in great shape: I know, since I hit about six of 'em. I found the par 3's to be especially tough, as all are elevated greens, guarded by HUGE bunkers. Be careful! Wind plays a more significant role than might be expected, so take a long careful look at the flag on approaches.

Course wanders through a development, but the houses/condos never become obtrusive. I think the course is walkable for most players, subect to a few lengthy trips from green to next tee.

Clubhouse is very nice: pro shop is well-stocked, and the staff there was very cordial. The Starter was informative and helpful, especially for a first-timer. Restaurant staff was excellent: attentive without being intrusive, and very timely with service. I really liked this course, and if I lived in the area, would become a regular. Should you decide to play there, check out the rates, as they run all kinds of specials. Military ID cards get the best deals of all. I highly recommend!
