    The Cotton Fields

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a semi-private golf club. That means that they cater to card-carrying members but on days when there is not a lot of member business or tournaments they open the premises up to limited public use.

    It is what the name implies: an old cotton field re-sculptured into a nice but fairly flat golf course. The fairways are narrow and tree-lined for the most part. Bunkers and sand traps dot the fairways and guard the greens. Ponds obstruct two of the fairways and skirt two of the greens. It is a difficult course for beginners and challenging to intermediate players.
    The course runs 5500 yards to 7000 yards and it plays as long as it sounds; gruelling on a warm summer morning.

    They have setup several practice greens where you can work on your chips and putts. The driving range has targets and greens to shoot for from the practice tees.

    The pro shop is the center for equipment, clothing, accessories, and tips on how to play the course. If you need clubs (forgot to pack them?) then you can rent them here. If you need some help with your game then you can get a lesson from the resident pro.
    The newly renovated snack shop is down the hall and they have a liquor license so you can relax with your favorite cold glass of beer after a round of golf.

    $42 per round of golf and $6 for a bucket of balls at the practice range.
    You must call ahead at least 24 hours (phone number below) to reserve a tee time if any are open that day.
