I have played Metrowest countless times but not for about 6 months. The greens putted very nice and were in great shape. The bunkers were also raked and in great shape which is not always the case here due to drainage issues I believe. The problem today was the lack of grass in the fairways. After the 3rd hole we felt it necessary to play preferred lies. There are way too many bare spots and areas of hardpan. This was not always the case as the fairways here are generally good. After mentioning this to a few of the staff, the general answer seemed to be - yes we need rain. The only place that seemed to be watered were the greens. I did see fairway sprinklers come on a couple of times, but they are not watered near enough. I would not recommend play here at this time unless you don't mind hitting from thin, hard lies with little grass.

For the cost I did not have high expectations. So I would say it's a good value. Friendly staff, very slow play, greens good, fairways and tee boxes below average. Nice open layout for someone like me who hasn't played in a couple of months. Again for the cost it met expectations

Course was in very good condition. Greens were perfect, and rolled very smoothly. Couple of dry spots on the fairway but that more has to do with the lack of rain, not poor maintenance.

Pace of play was very good, only had to wait on one hole when the group in front of us got drinks from the cart girl (credit card machines were down so that might have caused the extra wait time).

My only issue was there was absolutely no drinking water on the course. Not very acceptable for a Florida golf course, especially moving into the hotter months.

In the realm of golfing I am calling myself a rookie, this word is being too kind to my skill level. The staff at MetroWest was amazing, not once did their upbeat attitude ever seem forced or an act. The starter was extremely friendly, it felt like you have known him for years. The range was a bit rough, but for a warm up area, it got the job done. The chipping and putting area was very clean and maintained. I was lucky enough to be paired with another gentleman that was at my level, which relaxed me even more on my day off.

The course was challenging, with elevation changes and good pin positions on the green. Mind you I am not a great golfer and this was my first time keeping score on all 18. But the layouts didn't make it feel like a resort "take it easy you're on vacation" type of course.

The beverage cart girl was on point and we saw her 3 times, keeping us hydrated and in good spirits.

Overall, I will be back and bringing friends and family.

This course is making a strong comeback if the new management keeps this progress going. Great views, layout, and greens were surprisingly in really good shape in lieu of the Central Florida drought.

Theirs a gentleman by the name of Mr. Chappell, Director of Operation at MetroWest GC. This gentleman pretty much shaped my experience. I will return because he set the tone for MetroWest GC, very hospitable made me feel as if was a local. I hope this company continues to make him a asset.

He was spot on about hole 13, being able to see downtown ORL, I took a couple minutes to take it all in, then proceeded to par the par 4 dog leg right.

This course is a must, great location, great people, and fantastic course layout!

Keep up the good work MetroWest GC, and thank you Mr. Chappell for the being a true professional.

A nice layout with generous fairways strategically placed bunkers and greens that are in decent shape. What is most enjoyable about the course are the holes on the back nine with elevation changes. Florida golf courses are notoriously flat, but MetroWest reaches west to the highest point in Orange County starting on the par 5 10th to then beginning the descent on the par 5 14th before flattening out on the long par 3 17th and the 18th with its pond in front of the green. A very enjoyable and playable course. I will play here often.

Because, as I write, it is GETTING BETTER... what about getting better deserves 4 or 5 stars? It was in bad shape and is now playable and enjoyable. That gets 3 stars. It has elevation changes... a rare commodity in the flat Orlando Metro area. Premier properties get 4 and 5 stars from me.

If you only have positive things to say about MetroWest, why only 3 stars??? That doesn't compute.

Greens were good. Sand consiton is good. Could be faster, but smooth, which is good. Layout is very interesting and challenging. Played around 10 AM. Pace was 4:15, all foursomes. Grass sparse in some spots. Range is nothing special. Range balls need replacement. $19 replay is great. We played on a GolfNow deal. We're non-residents. Don't pay full rack, not worth it this time of year.

Course was very rough - Greens ok but very dry overall . Hard to distinguish between fairway and rough.

No money is being put into this course at all.

I would not recommend playing this as there are many other courses in the area for a few more dollars.

Range was a open patch of dirt with no grass

Greens are rough as are the boxes. Hard to distinguish between fairway and rough. Open course and a good one for newer players. Very forgiving. I'd be back but probably just to kill hours rather then looking forward to golfing.
