My wife and I played the course with two other vacationers from Chicago. It had rained the night before so it was cart paths only. We all struggled with the heat and high humidity and the extra walking. We felt cart paths only was a severe overreaction. The course wasn't that wet. The fairways and rough were in pretty good...

This course was fun. Played with my son and were paired with another twosome. Pretty challenging. Not unfairly narrow. The greens are a little beat up.

Great course and facilities, but had to take this from 4.6 stars to 3.2 (rounded down) because of the greens. Had really talked up the ocean course with my friend and was excited to play. As we teed off (after paying in the beautiful new clubhouse and hitting balls on the amazing driving range), we were very excited. As we... More

Fabulously remodeled clubhouse and pro shop. Large range facility in excellent condition. Course was in nice shape, although the greens were a bit slow. Had a drink afterwards overlooking the course afterwards. Wait staff was pleasant.

Made reservations 3 weeks in advance with the disclaimer that the greens were being aerated. Fine by me. We played June 25th and 14 of the 18 greens were LOST. Tons of sand and replacement sod and all greens were slow. Extremely disappointed. Just wanted to play an up-scale course with the father-in-law, and in the end I was slightly... More

We were staying in a house that the back was adjacent to the course (hole 17) so we had to play it. It was mid 90s and very humid so that was challenging. The course was beautiful despite aeration work being done a few weeks earlier. We had a very enjoyable experience and would do it again.

Golfed on 17 June 2015. Staff are friendly, club house clean. Have stations through out course with ice, water and cups. Nice. Tees and Fairways were good. Greens were so bad they should not have had course open. One hole had a green half removed, multiple greens and huge portions removed. Hit an approach shot that landed on the green,... More

Thank you for your feedback. We sincerely regret to hear that you did not have an enjoyable golfing experience at our Ocean Course. The atypical course conditions you experienced are a result of aerification. Like the majority of courses in the Southeast, Ocean Course aerifies at the beginning of each summer. This is a necessary maintenance procedure to sustain our... More

We golfed this course on the second day of our trip. We were greeted by friendly staff and hit a few range balls. The clubhouse was giant compared to what we have seen with a restaurant and other amenities. The course was laid out nice, we seen a big alligator on our first hole and 2 smaller ones on a... More
