Teed off Wednesday morning around 10:30 and finished in about 4.5 hours. The greens have recovered pretty good after aerating two weeks ago. The greens rolled mostly smooth with medium/fast pace and held shots. The fairways were mostly good with some thin spots. The rough was good around the greens and mostly good along the fairways with a few thin/bare spots. The bunkers were mostly good. I was in 3 greenside bunkers of which two were good and one the sand was thin and a bit compacted. The tee boxes were fair to good mostly due to mild unlevelness and a few were a bit chewed up where the the tee markers had been placed. Overall the conditions were pretty good. The staff was friendly.

Booked a tee time through Goose Creek web page as a single with a twosome. Teed off at 8:05 and finished in 3:50. The greens rolled mostly smooth with medium/fast speed. There were some very small bare spots but for the most part they did not effect play. The greens were a little on the firm side. The fairways had mostly good coverage with some thinner areas but nothing of much consequence. The rough had good coverage with some thin spots. The length of the rough was 1-3 inches and not too penal. The bunkers were well groomed but wet and a bit compacted. The tee boxes were in good condition.

Players started on hole 10 today. First time playing the nines reversed. Saw the food/beverage cart several times. I always enjoy playing Goose Creek. The layout is interesting and challenging but not so challenging that high handicapers would feel beat up by the course. The staff all around are very friendly.

The fairways were primarily good with a few thin spots scattered about. The rough was mostly good with some thin/bare spots and not too penal. The bunkers were in good condition. The tee boxes were fair to good mostly due to some mild unlevelness.

Destroyer is a good course with a variety of holes and nice practice area which includes a practice chipping green with bunker. The staff is friendly.

Booked a tee time for a single through the golf course website. Teed off at 7:30 and finished in 4:25. The greens putted fairly smoothly, held shots, but were on the slow side of medium speed. The fairways were fair to good. Most coverage was good and maybe a little shaggy in spots. The were some thin areas scattered about the fairways. The rough was bare to mowed down low making for some interesting lies. The bunkers were in good condition. The tee boxes were fairly flat but thin/bare in some spots.

The course is flat with greens that can be challenging if they are rolling with medium/fast speed. The front nine is straight forward to mild doglegs. The back nine has more variety with bigger doglegs and water coming into play. The staff was friendly.

Teed off Wednesday morning about 10:30 and finished in 4:45. The greens were in overall good shape. They rolled mostly smooth, medium/fast speed, and held shots. The greens were a little bumpy in spots. The fairways were pretty good with some thin spots. The rough was good with a few thin/bare spots and not to long. The bunkers were a little crusty and compacted but playable. The tee boxes were good. Some tee boxes have some mild unlevelness depending were the tee markers are set. Overall the course conditions are pretty good considering the heat this summer.

Navy Destroyer is a solid track with nice variety. Signs were posted advertising for online tee times visit GOLFNOW.com. The staff is friendly.

Teed off Sunday morning at 6:30 and finished in 4.5 hours. I booked a tee time through American Golf website for a single (rack rate but no booking fees). I have not played La Mirada in 6 years and wanted to give it a play since the last couple of reviews had showed improvement to conditions. A few years back they upgraded the driving range with artificial greens as targets. They also did some work to the bunkers. I noticed the bunker to the right of the 6th green had been removed and maybe the green size was reduced slightly. Bunkers were built on the outside corners of the doglegs on holes 1 and 10. Like many courses some rough areas farther off the fairways have been allowed to go bare or at least very thin in order to save water. They also turned the large practice putting green next to the cart barn into a smaller putting green and chipping green with bunker.

Overall the course conditions are fair to good. The greens rolled with medium speed and held shots but were a bit bumpy at times. The fairways were mostly good with some thin areas. The immediate rough to the fairways ways was decent but thin/bare in spots. The bunkers were in decent shape but a bit wet. The tee boxes were fair to good mostly due to mild unleveness.

Although La Mirada is just over 6000 yards the rolling terrain, small greens, and medium to long par 3s present some challenge. The starter was friendly and did a good job of getting people checked in and calling groups to the 1st tee.

Tee off Thursday at 9:40 and finished in 4:40 playing behind a tournament group. Foursomes and tee times 10 minutes apart helped with pace. I enjoyed the layout of the course. Nice variety of holes. There were a few holes that were somewhat narrow off the tee but overall most holes had a fair amount of room off the tee. The difficulty of many holes comes from the approach to the green. Several holes have a hazards to cross short of the green. A couple require a shot through a narrow gape of trees. The greens have good amount of undulation but nothing extreme.

The greens for the first 4 or 5 holes had some real issues. The small patchy spots throughout, were slow/medium speed, and bumpy. The remaining holes were much better with only minor thin spots but rolled pretty good with medium/fast speed. All the greens held shots. The fairways were thin but playable. Shots ran out a bit more than expected. The rough along the fairways was a mixed bag of good, thin, and bare. The green complex rough was mostly good. The bunkers, greenside and fairway, were in good condition. The tee boxes were mostly good.

The club house is very nice. The driving range is grass and there is a short game green with bunker. The staff was very friendly and informative about how to play a few of the holes. I booked on the course website for $54 and upon check in they provided me with a yardage book.

Sandpines has new ownership as of spring 2018 (same management group). The course is now named Florence Golf Links (for the name of the city). Stayed in Florence the first weekend in June on a 2 week driving trip. Wanted to play as early as possible on Sunday. The tee sheet started at 7:30am and the first several groups were booked. So on Saturday I stopped by to see if I could get out as a single prior to the first tee time. The gentleman working in the pro shop was very friendly. He told me he opens up the place at 7am and I could go out at soon as the ground crew gave him the ok. He asked me if I had played the course, when I said no, he gave me a yardage book and told me I would need it. The next morning I showed up and teed off at 7:20am while the regulars were warming up on the range. The pro shop/ event center was getting a new exterior paint job while I was there. All the staff I encountered were very friendly.

The course has an enjoyable layout with a nice mix long and short holes. Off the tee the course is fairly open with many holes having mounding along the sides. Most of the holes have no trees much like a links course while several holes meander through the evergreen trees. The course is mostly flat with some rolling terrain. The wind is the biggest factor in how difficult the course plays. On a mildly breezy morning I reached the par 3 17th playing into the breeze. From a 142 yards out to a front pin I hit 15 yards off extra club and I needed 20 yards extra club. Water comes into play on several holes.

Condition wise the course was in fine shape. The greens rolled smooth with medium/fast speed. Short iron shots held well while longer shots would release a little. The fairways had good coverage and I had good lies the whole round. The rough was in good condition overall. The length was somewhat penal (mostly on longer shots). The bunkers looked to be on the finishing end of a rehab. Mentioned in a prior review was the under cut faces and long grass edges. The faces appeared to be redone and the long edges mowed down. I was in one bunker and the sand was in good shape. The tee boxes were in overall good condition and fairly level.

Overall the course was worth the $79 visitor rate I paid. The club house was nice. I enjoyed good conditions. Although the layout may not leave you in awe it is very enjoyable and had plenty of variety. The yardage book that was given to me definitely helped. The weather was 60deg. and sunny. The Staff was great!

Teed off Friday morning at 6:30 trying to beat the heat. Finished in 3:45. The greens were in good condition. They rolled smooth with medium/fast speed and were a little on the firm side. The fairways are mostly good with some patchy areas scattered among a few holes. The rough was decent with some thin/bare spots. The tee boxes were fair to good. Some were difficult to find a flat spot and a few of the tee areas the grass was a bit long. The bunkers were in good condition although a little on the wet side.

The staff was friendly.

Teed off Thursday morning about 6:50 and finished in just a tick under 4 hours. The Players course has a nice variety of holes and the majority of holes have small trees along the fairway. I prefer to play the Classic course which is more traditional parkland style with large mature trees and typically overall better conditions.

The greens were in good condition. They rolled good with medium/fast speed, and were a little on the firm side. The fairways for the most part are good with a few holes having some patchy areas but for the most part I had good lies. The rough was mostly good with some thin spots and not too penal. The bunkers were a little on the wet side but the two greenside and one fairway bunkers I was in played decent. The tee boxes were fair to good mostly due to mild unlevelness.

All the staff I encountered were friendly.

Teed off Thursday morning at 6:55 and finished in 3.5 hours. The greens are in good condition. They rolled smooth with medium/fast speed and held shots. The fairways had good coverage overall. There were a few thin spots, especially hole 16, but I had good lies during my round. The rough is mostly good with some thin/bare spots. The tee boxes were fair to good mostly due to mild unlevelness. The bunkers were in good condition. I was in a greenside and a fairway bunker. One of the other players in my group also made a comment on how good the bunkers were. The Classic course is fairly straight forward with mild doglegs and tall trees. The staff was friendly.

Teed off Wednesday morning a little after 10am finishing in 4:20ish. The greens are in decent shape. They had not been mowed so they were a little bumpy and medium/slow speed but predictable. The fairways for the most part were good with a few small areas along the outer portion where turf had been cut out. Looks like new sod will be put into the cut outs. The rough along the fairways mostly good. The bunkers were in good condition. The tee boxes are fair to good mostly due to mild unlevelness.

The driving range, as of March 1, 2018, will be on grass Monday-Wednesday (range closed for maintenance Mondays until 10:30am). Mats Thursday-Sunday (range closed Thursdays for maintenance until 12pm).

Destroyer is a fun track to play with a variety of holes. The staff is friendly.
