I'm sure the price per round was ridiculous, but I would go back today if I could. A great golf course, that makes you want to try it again. I won't come back in August. Just too dang hot. I also would not come back and play the other "lesser courses" associated with the resort. Especially not in August. We... More

A fantastic golf course. An overall great experience with the caddies and walking the course. Get to really soak up the surroundings. The course and staff are great. The course is tough, but playable. It was not a really windy day either.

We had a great morning at the Ocean Course. Our caddy, Jeff, was really good -- he knew where we should hit each shot and how to read the greens. Being first off in the morning, our foursome completed the round in under four hours. Cannot say the same for the groups following us as we had lunch on the... More

This was fun to play with my two sons. The front nine plays thru marshland, and the back nine plays thru dunes. We started on the front nine on Monday morning.. morning is a walking tour with caddies (double bags).. be sure you get a partner that agrees to play your tees. We got around the front nine in about... More

Greens fee of $250+ isn't cheap, but this course is worth it. I strongly suggest walking (course allows carts after noon). They have water every 3 holes and walking the course through the dunes is breathtaking. Caddies are top notch and a joy to talk with in addition to saving you a few strokes. Earlier tee time the better because... More

I played Ocean for the fourth time recently and each time has been a completely different experience. I have played it in the morning (caddies required), I have played it in the afternoon (a fore caddy required) and I have enjoyed each experience. There is one thing that makes each visit unique - THE WIND! This was the first visit... More

My brother and his new wife live in Las Cruces, NM. I orchestrated their nuptials at the Ocean Course Clubhouse for them since I am considerably closer. From the beginning to the moment we were done, everything was simply breathtaking. Ashley D., banquet and catering manager was professional and personable in her assistance with details. She and her entire staff... More

Good conditions and test of golf. With the wind, playing one tee shorter makes for a more enjoyable experience. The forecaddie was good and helped us maintain a good pace of play. Beware, there is hardly any shade. The porch at the clubhouse is also nice for drinks. Allow for enough time to get there; it is a long drive... More
