“An enjoyable round”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

A local invited us to play this course and we really enjoyed it. Some holes require position play where a three wood will work better than a driver. Lots of water to play around, but overall a very fair course. There are two courses in Santee owned by the same management and they are equally fun to play. Staff is very friendly and they are both on the International Golf Card program. Play was four hours.
