Course is perfect for the average golfer and the low-handicapper would enjoy it from the back tees. There are several holes that offer reasonable opportunity to recover from an errant tee shot. Fairways are nice. Greens were true but a bit slow. Price is right and Sand Hill cranes here and there on the course make great spectators.

Play this course every January. It never disappoints. Greens were in great condition. Fairways had grass. Will be back again next January. Very friendly staff also.

On our previous visit, playing with friends, we were so engrossed with the chat and the competitiveness, we really did not appreciate the quality of the course .. This time, the fairways were good, the greens were excellent and very quick, and unlike so many courses, watered greens produce run-off wet approaches. Not so here, it was so good and,... More

Not a long or difficult course unless you choose to play back tees ( blue ) Got my best score for this vacation playing 4 under my handicap - if you drive over 200 yds you should play the blue tees - got a real sense of being in the country - big Alligator on a few holes great birds... More

Tatum Ridge is going through a problem with their greens. There was not one green that did not have a problem. They have a possible fungus that has hit each green. The fairways are in good shape. On one tee box Feral Pigs had destroyed one entire tee box. They have one temporary green I like this course and would... More

Not one to normally disparage golf courses, but this one should be avoided. They are losing half of their greens. Staff is unfriendly. Just not worth the effort and money.

Way too much to pay for golf when the conditions are so poor. Terrible greens, dry hard pan fairways. This used to be a wonderful course but this year it is not good. Plus slow play.

Have to admit that playing here was a new experience. How exactly do you putt on dirt greens? All 18 greens weren't in terrible shape but enough of them lacked grass on large expanses of their surfaces to make our round here extremely disappointing. If management doesn't do something quick a once pretty good golf course may soon find itself... More

Played for the first time. Greens and tee boxes were the worst I've ever played. For $62, you can do better elsewhere. Slow play ahead of us didn't help.

For a public course that gets a lot of play it is in pretty good shape. Would go back for sure. Pace of play was great. Lots of beautiful birds. Nice grill.
