I do not expect to pay 60 dollars for 18 holes of golf and take nearly 5 hours for the pleasure , with the course ranger just saying it is blocked up. Nothing worse than two or three groups waiting on every hole. Could not stay to visit the clubhouse as I would have been late to meet friends for dinner

if you like playing golf with pompous conservative blue hairs this is a great place play! very uptight wanna bee country club guys. showed up for a relaxing day of golf with wife and nine year boy, had brand new callaway shirt/hat and denim carpenter shorts and after i paid green fee, checked out cart and hit range balls the old man starter informed us we could not play because of the denim. pretty sad way to handle the situation, a heads up for next time would have been appreciated. these guys clearly could of cared less they ruined a family day of golf. lots of great courses in the area, will never attempt to play here again.

I stopped to use the bathroom at the turn and was told to leave essentially, ose your spot and go home unless there is a break somewhere. in 40 years of golf, never saw such a tactic.

there are some good things here but the people there need to chill.

Nice course..slow greens but apparently we played after huge amounts of rain. Not the friendliest course we've played...in terms of staff & tricky layout but we had an enjoyable round..and saw a gator!*

Great location, easy on, easy off. Good golf rates and fine dining. Friendly staff. Golf course has 27 hole layout with several interesting holes. Lakes on most holes, but very few come into play. Wildlife is seen every day. A lovely golf course with great views.
