The course was very disappointing. The conditions were fair at best. The layout is interesting but the course is in need of many improvements.
The local concierge recommended this course with high praise. Unfortunately, the course disappointed. I guess he was getting a kickback. The course design is nice, but the conditions are poor compared to the other courses we played. With so many other options, we won't return.
Good Design Needing Better Conditions
Not too many good things I can say about Hunters Creek except the price. The course has a decent design with some challenging holes, but the course conditions were less than ideal. Pace of Play was quick on the day our group played, maybe because nobody was on the course. It looks like they tried to put some money into the course with new sand in the bunkers, although it was very uneven and resulted in a few plugged lies. Staff was friendly, but overheard them discussing management or ownership problems.
Nice Layout, Fair Conditions
For the price, the course was a viable option. However, the course conditions left a lot to be desired. The layout and design of the course is nice, but the course conditions hamper the experience. The greens were rolling good, but the tees were very uneven. The tee boxes were narrow and crowned on numerous holes making a good setup nearly impossible. The bunkers were washed out from the recent rains. The staff was generally friendly, but didn't go out of their way to provide service seen at other area courses. Pace of play was ok, but the course did not have a ranger on a fairly busy day.
