Wow - you should go there and play it! It is a tough, demanding but wonderful golf course. That's a course which could have been designed by mother nature. A lot of sand, quite some water, wonderful bunkers along the water, fantastic and stunning layout. It is just a great course which can not be compared with it's sister course Caledonia (see my other review), which also is fantastic but in a very different way.
You either need to have long hits/drives to make a good score or you play very tactically. It's anyway a fair course since the fairways are broad and huge. The quality of the course was awesome, just one green showed spots which they try to regrass. Everything else was just cool. Staff was great, clubhouse as well, there's nothing which would prevent me to play it again.

Greens were not as good as previous years.

Good course with a lot of interesting holes but the greens were slow.

When I organised our 2 week trip for 16 golfers we had a free day on the 1st Saturday so I booked True Blue for 6 of us as I had heard great things and chose it over the other premium courses (Caledonia/Dunes Club). What a disappointment to find the greens were terrible. How courses can charge full price when greens are so bad is beyond me and shows complete disdain for the paying customer. The course itself was a great layout but the $149 cost with terrible greens spoiled the day.

We've wanted to play this course for a few trips now. We loved the layout, but the greens really struggle thru this winter apparently. Still we could appreciated what the course potential is, but the greens were disappointing. Mother Nature beat her this winter apparently. Rest of the course was very good though, & we will play it again. After playing here we did a rebook, thru them, at Caledonia for the same day & that course was in amazing condition (I was told they have different grass on their greens which made a HUGE difference). True Blue has a practice area which was nice. Well stocked pro shop for shirts etc. Staff was very good.

We were concerned, it's known as a great layout and highly regarded by all the publications, but had heard the conditioning was off earlier this Spring, overall we thought the course was really good. Manicured bunkers, fairways mowed tight,the greens had some thin spots but rolled well overall. Real gem of a layout with friendly staff.

My wife and I visit MB every Spring and Fall. We heard the winter was rough here. The course is usually in excellent condition, overall it was good, not great this trip. Have played it at least a dozen times and it is one of our favorites.

Interesting layout but very disappointed with course conditions, especially the conditions of the greens. Fuzzy, uncut, patchy, bare spots, and inconsistent. Green-side bunkers treated as waste bunkers and unkempt is a joke. Fairways patchy in places. Far over-priced for the condition. There are $35 munis in MB that are in better condition.

Terrible shape tee to greens was told they had a bad freeze which caused the conditions to be as bad as they were. Only problem the other 4 courses we played next door were not affected. Save your money.

Have played this course many times over the years and considered it one of the top 5 on the Strand. Not this year. Was in very poor condition, from tees to fairways to greens. Certainly not worth the cost of the round. It was as poor as Caledonia was last year. Maybe they can bring it back. I hope so because it is a great layout.
