I've played this course three times, and I enjoy it more each time. I've ridden it in carts and walked it with caddies. Walking with caddies is by far the better experience. I'm a 12.5 handicap and felt like a 16 on this course. Most of the holes are very playable and you can recover if you spray it a... More

Great round with outstanding weather, Robbie went above and beyond to help get us going without a hitch. Also swinging around for drinks and some wings proved to be a great idea.

Really enjoyed our round at the Ocean course. It is a unique golf challenge that winds it way through marsh land with some ocean views but you never feel like you are right next to the ocean. We were a foursome and had caddies who double bagged. Overall, it is one of the top courses you can play in the... More

The Ocean Course was a great experience. It was hard to believe that the course was only 25 years old. The course was in great shape and the layout was beautiful. Many times, the only structure you can see is the clubhouse. The greens weren't terribly fast but were very smooth. A unique grass that I hadn't played before. The... More

My husband and I had a lunch date here without our 8 month old daughter. Lunch was very basic hamburger and fish sandwich but just what we wanted and good. A beautiful view of the golf coarse and the I ocean. We can't wait to go back!

A great experience with a beautifully manicured course, excellent service and an awesome view of the Atlantic ocean. The Pete dye designed Ocean Course is a great experience for a golfer. You must walk and take a caddy (untill late afternoon, when you can ride with a forecaddy) and this requirement alone made the experience even more special. There were... More

I played here with two adult sons. It is certainly an expensive round of golf. But as a special golfing experience it is worth it. We played in the morning with caddies. It is terrific to walk this course, a very pleasant round of golf. The course is spectacular. The scenery of the ocean is terrific. If you get a... More

Played Ocean Course Friday July 22nd with my three sons 16-20-24. Hot day but not too windy course was everything we had anticipated. Well maintained with two excellent caddies Travis and Josh. All of us are sub-10 handicaps with our lowest score 84 from the 6800-yd tees. Took some great pictures on a day we'll never forget.
