I played today. I left after 5 holes due to the condition. This place has never been in good condition and to say otherwise is dishonest. Now they are rebuilding it. I would not recommend this course right now as it is a dirt lot. I sure hope all this re-do isn't all talk. Stay away until it's completed. I sure hope the course comes out well in a year or so.

Played with AndrewZ28 in an unexpected round…but I always pack my clubs in the trunk so I was ready! First have to say what a great time it always is to tee it up with AndrewZ28. Don't ever pass on an opportunity to play golf with him.
Regarding the golf course, it is in the middle of a renovation, a work in progress but still a fun go around in my opinion. I met John Ashworth before round, actually if you play the course, the man is there every afternoon working on the renovation with his crew. This is his baby. He’s has ownership in the course and has a big vision with it. Having met and talked with John, the guy is an artistic perfectionist. I’m optimistic and excited about the coming improvements which are already taking place.
They have already cleared out ALL the messy brush and excess trees. The results are some beautiful views of the surrounding Oceanside area that were previously shielded. You can even catch some glimpses of the ocean. I posted a photo to show. btw – notice the super nice country club pin. That’s a prelude of how they are not going to cut corners with the renovation.
In addition they are going to be installing a brand new irrigation system soon. They are moving around a lot of land to make the course more player friendly. They are using Pinehurst in ways as an inspiration by adding native grasses to the areas they have cleared out. Give the course a sort of Scottish feel. The green complexes will remain but there will be improvements made to some of them. They have already redone the proshop/patio, looks great with an easy going vibe to it.
Is the course rough shape right now?...you bet it is and will be in rough shape for some time. But I will say the greens are in great shape, tee boxes are fine, pace of play is fast, to me the layout is interesting/challenging and it’s a bargain to play.
