Love the Driving Range

This review is really in two parts. The course itself is not great and in my opinion, overpriced. That said, the driving range is well maintained (hitting off grass!) and... read more

The good. I thought it was a beautiful course, well maintained, very good condition. I love the undulating fairways and greens. Did not need the staff fir anything which is a good thing. They were nice, friendly and helpful. The bad. It is in the middle of nowhere. About 40 minutes from AC hotels.

Started off on wrong foot when they neglected to tell us 9 holes were closed when we booked. Course was in poor condition compared to others in area. Members we rude when group of three caught our group of 4. No water to drink on course and no beverage cart. Greens recently sanded(which they also did not mention) and had... More

I played Sand Barrens twice in the past 2 weeks with my son and both times it was a bad experience. In both cases we left before completing 18 holes. In fact, the second time we played there it took 3 hours to complete 10 holes. We didn't see a ranger on the course either time which obviously contributed to... More

Decent course and great pace of play. Lots of sand to penalize errant shots. Local liquor rules prohibit beer purchase if your tee time was not made at least 3 days in advance.

Played this course in the afternoon in mid week for under $40.00. Pro shop and clubhouse were very appealing. We played the south and north course as this is a 27 hole layout. Tee boxes were level and free of weeds. The fairways were cut low and were hard and fast with absolutely no weeds. The rough was about 4".Fairway... More

Played here last week and you can see the improvement. Greens, fairway and rough were in great shape. I heard last year was tough but so far it seems the course has made a great comeback.

The greens were in terrible shape for a $90 greens fee. The starter said that it was because of the weather, but another nearby course was in much better shape and the fee was similar. We will never golf at this course again. Even the grass that was cut down had a lot of crabgrass-- just total lack of care.... More

Nice golf course, that's not too difficult. Course is in serious need of improvement. Way too many spots are burned out. Everyone very friendly.

Course was in just OK shape for $105. Greens were very slow. very little water on the course and the temp was over 90. When I told them that they should have more water their response was that "people complained about that the day before also". not exactly the most customer friendly response I would have expected.
