I had no issues with other players because it was very rainy on my front nine. The back nine was absolutely gorgeous though. Fairways and Greens very well maintained. Enjoyed the wildlife as well.

Very, very nice. If you're going to just play nine, I suggest playing the back nine. The front nine is nice, but it brings that long grass that eats balls into the picture, and it runs within view of the freeway. The back nine sports the island green and has more water that comes into play, but not obtrusively. The stone yardage markers are a nice touch.

This is a short and tight/narrow course with small, undulating greens to make up for the lack of length. Some fairways run right next to each other with patches of rough separating them, so you have to be wary of who is in the other fairway when hitting from the rough.
The design of the course, while tight, is actually pretty nice. It is modeled after the TPC course, complete with the island green at 17. It's short, but you can still hit several balls in the drink if you aren't careful.
Overall it's a good course to play for people who don't hit the driver very far or are somewhere between novice and intermediate golfers.

The course used to be very beautiful and fun to play, albeit the fairways are very close on many holes as smokewagon stated. The rough has been allowed to grow to several inches tall at its lower points. Apparently the county or state declared it is part of a wildlife preserve for one reason or another and thus the rough could not be cut; as of April 09.

The fairways are very close. You might want to wear a helmet.
