"Its an older members club making money off visitors.Bu thanks for the opportunity to play it. Bag drop wants to load your clubs even if u r in the parking lot already. This is annoying when your traveling luggage and underwear are all over the place? Whats the issue with taking a cart to your car? So they want u to carry your clubs over so they can place them back on the cart. So u can readjust them again anyways! This was an interesting but difficult golf course. Ala Jack Nicholas. Definitely enjoyed the back nine and its marsh exposure. The greens were in good shape. Sand in the many bunkers. Fairways good. Need to play this course a few times to really appreciate it. Although the tee boxes are playable they need to spend some money on rehabilitating them. Especially the forward tees that my spouse played. U should have a did not use or n/a box on your ratings for my critic as most were not used. I would like to play it again sometime."

"Tight and very scenic. Most greens had been sanded recently. Not as true as expected. Will go back when needing a challenge."

"Nice course. No evidence of the aerating. Would play here again. Only trouble spot was some of the bunkers were lacking sand. Everything else was very nice."

"Understood the greens had been punched prior to play. Understood that a tee had collapsed and flow of play would be disjointed. Fine with all that. However, a ranger (recall his badge stating he was from Levittown, PA) stated he was compelled to advise that we were out of position by 1/2 hole and that he had received complaints re slow play in our group. This after waiting on every shot during the day. This on the 15th tee midway through entering the collapsed area. This after waiting 10 minutes to tee off on 14. He stated that he was compelled to advise us from the group of members playing in groups directly behind. Not at all fine with that. FYI, I have played around the world and been a member of more than a dozen clubs. I have played 100's of club and dozens of USGA events. This was both uncalled for as well as a first for me. "

"Wanted to give other players a heads up. The greens are now really good. They went through a tough time early Spring. All good now. The views are just great on the back 9. The best at the beach. I really like the fact that you have to position the ball as you play the course. Great job on getting the greens back after the rain problem that so many courses had to deal with."

"pace of play could use some help. as we were making the turn to the first hole the starter waits for us to tee off and then tells us that we needed to wait for him to tee off on the back nine. glad we didn't because there was a large group that teed off behind us and wasn't in sight by the third hole on the back."

"The back side is like no other course here. Being out on the marsh is breath taking, but don't let it fool you. It can throw you depth perception off and make you want to hit the wrong club, trust the yardage provided. "

"Greens were terrible. Ranger said root fungus the cause. No one said anything about conditions when i called the course and asked before booking. Ranger asked us to pick up the pace on the third hole. We had been on the course 40 minutes. Left a Yeti mug on the cart at cart return and called back 30 minutes after I left and none of the staff turned it in. Would have expected MUCH better all around from a "premier" priced course. Better courses at better prices in the area."
