Bring an extra few golf balls. There are many forced carries over wetlands, with some off of downhill, tight lies. If you are off the fairway, this course will eat your lunch. They have cleaned up several areas, seemingly due to competition from their excellent sister course, Chapel Ridge, but still errant shots generally lead to losing your ball and... More

Excellent Davis Love III course near Jordan Lake. Conditions were very good given heavy recent rains. As a short hitter, I could have used firmer fairways for more roll. Bring lots of golf balls. Fairway-crossing "natural areas" a challenge for the timid. Greens take some getting used to. Bent grass tough on a Floridian used to Bermuda. Don't pick a... More

We played this course toward the end of April and found the fairways to be better than other courses we have played in the last couple of weeks. The greens were in very nice condition albeit a bit firm and didn't hold quite as well as I thought they should. The pace of play was very good and we never... More

I received some of the most unsatisfactory service I have ever experienced. This included my guests being yelled at and threatened by the head golf pro, as well as being followed for multiple holes by marshals insisting that they speed up play, when, in fact, they were behind a couple who chose to walk the course and would not allow...

It is so beautiful and serene! I could sit for a couple hours and just watch everything going on around me. The wild life, people, kids having fun. Great place to spend some time.

Beautiful and challenging golf course. Top 5 public courses for the area for sure. The layout is fantastic. Greens are very nice but very slow. If they were to improve the speeds of the greens it would be 4th best for the RTP.

I have been to this course twice, but I also will not be going back. The course is very nice and has many interesting holes. The great e-coupon was very attractive and we really enjoyed the course itself. It was amazing to me how unpleasant and rude the golf shop staff acted during my two encounters with them. The ranger... More

I've been to this course twice, but I will not be going back. The course is nice and interesting but both times the staff pretty much ruined the round early. The first time, the lady in the clubhouse was grumpy. Then the marshal was driving around and constantly harassing us to play faster, but we were stuck waiting on the... More

The specials are really good and I always use their e-coupons. It's a very good deal and excellent course for my skill level, just challenging me in all the right ways.
