I’m a single digit player and this course intrigues me. The blue tees are difficult and it makes for a competitive round. It’s cheap, the greens are in great shape, the fairways are tight, and the bunkers are well kept. Can’t beat it for the money.

This is a great course for the price. The landscaping was well maintained on all holes and the greens were well taken care of. This is a great course to play when you are working out kinks in your game for both irons and driver. It’s not going to play like a course that costs $80 a round, but it plays much better than the low price it is.

Andy6813111,

Thanks for the 4 Star Review. The course conditioning was weak in February since the course experienced a 14-week wet season during the Winter. If you come out now (June 21), the course is in GREAT SHAPE. Thanks for the support!

Probably can't get a better value. If yo are looking for all the bells and whistle's this may not be the course for you. However if you just want to get out and play a round it works out great. Of note you my want to cal to check directions as our GPS got us into the international paper factory.

Greens are good. Fairways are getting a little thin because we’ve had the first frost. Likely won’t get any new grass for a couple months. For the money it’s a good place to work on your game.

Have played here several times the past few years. Improvements have been made to fairways and greens. Conditions are pretty good now and if you can snag a hot deal tee time it’s well worth the money.

I have not been playing that course over the last several years but I started playing it over 20 years ago. The course is not maintained, The greens were not bad but the fairways and overall course needs more frequent cutting. The cart paths have many pot holes. It needs cleaning. I could be a lovely little course as it was back in the day.

This is not a great course in the grand tradition; they won't be holding the state am here anytime soon. But then again, where else can you play as inexpensively in a relaxed atmosphere? This is the perfect track for beginners; the course has just enough variance to be interesting and moderately challenging but does not have all the nonsense associated with many of the pretentious grand courses with forced carries and 15' deep sand traps. The course is a little rough around the edges, and sometimes you run into little oddities on the greens, tufts of weeds here and there, but I've seen worse. There's generally grass in the fairways, so there's that. The clubhouse is dingy and the posters on the wall are a good 40 years old, but the staff is always friendly. Very good, down home atmosphere that remind me of the courses I used to play decades ago when I first learned the game. Long as I'm in the area, I'll always play there from time-to-time.

Hey this is a decent 9 hole course.... nothing fancy, definitely not worth what they are charging at the door... 32dollars to play 18 that is ridiculous.... there are way better courses here for the same amount of money but for what I played on the golf now app, not a bad course....

Early tee time...... First one out...pace of play excellent. Great course to work on your game. Can't beat the price. Less than a bucket of balls. Cameron the super, nice as all and really cares on improving the course. Paul and I spoke for a few which I'll be attending some events. If you have a golf fix, hit this course up. Give it a few months and the course should be improving. Tough winter with a lot of rain. Shout out to the few staff members at the Mary!!!!!

I read all the reviews prior to booking, and I was reluctant to play but I’m beyond happy that I did. It was incredibly cold, and slightly drizzling but it didn’t downplay the course, whatsoever. The fairways and greens were surprisingly nice, better than some courses in Bluffton. The only issue was the construction for some of the ditches on the fairways. Staff was incredibly friendly, felt like a family was running the course. I would recommend this course to a friend, and I can’t wait to see how much the course improves in the future.
