Visiting the area for a wedding, played here Friday, Oct 21, 2016, an important date, since it is only about ten days after Hurricane Matthew passed through the area, dumping FEET of rain, and flooding much of the course. To management's credit, they managed to restore the course to minimal playability, despite the damages caused (flooding destroyed the sprinkler control system, wind and rain impacted vegetation, with limbs, leaves, and even whole trees downed). Surprisingly, greens were in excellent shape, fairways not so much.

Layout itself is pretty challenging, especially for us old guys, with lotsa water to contend with, including some not readily visible from the fairway: moral of that story, look at the scorecard picture!

I have played a number of courses in the area, and this is fairly typical. Nothing too extreme, nothing super memorable, just a nice test of golf. Staff we encountered were uniformly positive and welcoming, and notably appreciated our patronage. I recommend.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area
