    My first round here in almost 2 years. I was disappointed. I was surprised right away as we headed to the 2nd tee to see that #2 and #8 were being torn up and renovated. I’m on Ballantyne’s golf e-mail list and I get messages about once a week. Nowhere in any of these messages has it mentioned any renovations. The work was going on while we were playing, including very loud equipment. #2 was not much affected, but #8 had been shortened to a 250yd par 4 with a temporary green. Not cool. Elsewhere on the course, conditions were very average. Several greens had bare spots covered with green sand. Several fairways had bad patches. The greens were extremely hard and slick. It was a difficult putting day. Overall, I was sorely disappointed since we paid $60 for an afternoon tee time. If I’d paid $30 or even $40, I might have let it go. But when I play a resort course, it should be immaculate. I can’t recommend this course right now.

  • And on top of it all, they are Arrogant smucks. They are clear though, they really don’t want you there. Only corporate events, those staying on sight and friends of smokey are welcome. Others are tolerated
