    Great golf outing in February 2016. Cool and breezy, but clearly a notch about the other local "resort" courses (Raven, Baytowne, Links). On par with Regatta Bay. Newly built, firm, fast and true greens.

    Disappointing. This course bears Fred Couples name, but it is not worthy of it. Course was in average condition. Layout was average. Other area courses are much better, Regatta Bay, Raven and Burnt Pine are all better.
