“Challenging Golf Course probably better in the summer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

Good golf holes, very challenging and a very nice walk, but the fairways were very wet. Typical for some of the courses on the coast in the winter. Will try it again this summer!

“Best kept secret”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

While I'm not a golfer myself, I have lots of friends and family who visit just to play. They all have loved this course and its a nice alternative for those who can't afford the prices at Bandon Dunes or want a little diversity. Tucked a little inland, it provides a much needed dose of sun for family who visit from Arizona and aren't used to the cool coastal weather

“good course, unfreindly staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2011

My hats off to the superintendent for performing much needed tree trimming, bushwacking, and overall jungle control. The greens are fabulous, true rolling, and very plush, with clear cut collars, very nice!The course is playing very well. But the staff has some attitude issues. No greetings, no personal touches, no thank you's, no have a nice day! Their indifference and the overall negative feeling in the cubhouse makes my freinds and I not want to play here.

“Don't waste your time or money.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2011

Great course when it's dry but it's run by amateurs. No PGA Pro, clubhouse & restaurant closed most of the time. Soggy fairways,they've increase the rough to cut down on maintenance. Go further South 20 miles and play Bandon Crossings, everything is better, from the course to the pro shop and driving range and a PGA Pro.
