3 very good courses and then there’s crown parkAugust 19, 2016 at 10:11 pm #35981Rick KimbrellParticipant
Legends Moorland – PB Dye course. #16 short par 4 with a bunker that is named Hell’s Half Acre. Course is target golf personified.
Tidewater – Top tier course with what I consider to be an “against the USGA Rules of Golf” local rule. There is no OB. But, there are houses along the course. No OB stakes. If you hit one in a yard and you can find your ball, you take it across the cart path and drop it…no penalty. If you do not find your ball, it is a lost ball and you return to where you hit it last or to your provisional ball that you should have hit. Gets rave reviews.
River Club, water on 14 of 18 holes, if I remember correctly. Was nice the last time I played it. If wet, can play extremely long.
Clown Park…oops…sorry Crown Park – to be honest, I played it 1 time and it had just opened. It was not ready for play and it was 27 holes back then designed (I believe) by the owner’s son who IMHO had no clue about golf or golf course design. Back then you needed hard hats to play there. They have fairways that were common between 2 holes. You are standing in what you think is your fairway and someone is aiming at you on another tee box. Now it is only 18 holes and supposed to be in nice shape. No idea to be honest.August 19, 2016 at 10:45 pm #35989Aaron EllisParticipant
Id heard Crown Park had gotten better as of late, hadn’t been up there, but know you can get cheap rates, its across from Black Bear and doesn’t get tons of play being out so far, but it definitely is on the lower tier rating compared to others!August 19, 2016 at 10:46 pm #35990don rabbParticipant
Jeff, you are in my flight. Legends course is a tough one. I have played it twice in the WA and it was tough both times. Love River club and Tidewater. Never played clown park but only heard horror stories. At least we got 3 good ones. BTW, the bar at the Legends is top notch as is the practice area.August 19, 2016 at 10:54 pm #35993Rick KimbrellParticipant
Also, the food at Legends has always been very good.August 20, 2016 at 5:05 pm #36071jeffrey nardoneParticipant
