Played a mid morning weekend round in under 4 1/2 hours. A real pleasure and a nice day on the coast. Course is in very good shape. A little thin in the rough but the fairways and maddening greens wer... Continue »

The course and most all of the immediate surrounding areas are almost totally flat. It would not surprise me if the water NOT running off may have been part of the issue. I could picture it just sitting in low lying areas for ??? I was VERY impressed that Phil in the Pro Shop spent 5 minutes info...

Sounds like the entire property is a stormwater receiving/holding area. Where all the runoff goes!

Pretty cool finishing hole that is a extreme short dogleg right par 5. If you are playing back tees and you cannot hit a fade, you are in trouble. There are 2 big trees just to the middle right of the tee box that you must play a fade around. However do not fade the ball to much as OB is all along the right side of this fairway along with some pretty heavy rough. If you can hit anything over 250-260 , the fairway opens up after clearing trees and you should have between 150-200 yard shot into this green. If you go left on this hole you will be in 16 fairway with trees in front of you, having to probably playa high layup shot over the trees. I find this green impossible to hold if you are hitting anything in over a 180 club. There is a lake right in front of the green as well as a bunker. Smart players that cannot reach in 2 shots will play to the left fairway and leave themselves a 50 yard pitch with a good angle into this green. This green is very small from front to back but very big from left side to right side. Long is OB in the parking lot and as stated before OB is also to the right of this green. I feel that this is the only true birdie hole on the back nine. Birdie is not certain though.

Elevated tee box on this par 3, about a 135-145 yard shot to this green from back tees. that is divided into 2 seperate entities. I always feel that this tee shot plays 5-7 yards shorter than it states. If pin is on right side of the green go at it and do not leave your ball on left side of the green- same advice is pin is on left side of the green. There are bunkers short right on this hole. It seems that if you just clear bunkers your ball will kick hard onto the gree. Like I stated know where the pin is and play your yardage correctly and you could be putting for birdie.
