Fescue was up today. Rough was just as tough. With all this rain lately on the East Coast nice time to play. Wind blew at 20+mph. Tough conditions. Greens rolled true today. Would recommend this course to any golfer. I will be back. Maybe next time play the West Course.

East course was in incredible shape for this time of year. I think it's the first time I have played golf this year where the ball actually rolled after it hit the ground. Amazing job keeping it dry as possible.

Pleasantly surprised with good shot values on number of holes in this links layout. Can’t give true review of conditions as greens and some tees were recently aerated however fairways were relatively firm despite time of year. Amount of sand used to fill in greens would seem to indicate greeens will be firm when they heal. Played with locals who play there a lot and they said greens are generally medium speed. Would play again.

Wasn’t notified the greens were recently airated and sanded until after I booked and paid thru golf now... The only other issue was the whole place was covered with with dried goose droppings. I guess that’s better than fresh goose waste. I definitely will be back to play the west course in several weeks

Considering the rain we had the night before. Was in good condition. Last good day of the year at 55°. The East course has a great layout and is fun to play from all tees.

I have played this course many times but the east is my favor the west is very nice but to ease is a links course. Played this course yesterday it was an excellent shape from Teebox to greens. Superintend it and grounds crew should get a big raise for keeping this course in such good shape with all the rain. I recommend this course to all types of golfers to play this course because of the different tea boxes. Make sure you practice on the greens before going out they are super fast but trail
