The course is in great shape. The staff is very friendly. The pace is very good - played with son, daughter-in-law and wife and we finished 3 1/2 hrs. Would recommend this as a must play for anyone in Florence and as a day trip course.


Player Tip: Greens read more break than is there. Traps are rough -- typical for mid summer. Need to be groomed more

Greens punched without any notice. Explained the 2 hour round pace of play as nobody was on the course. Fairways were excellent. Not sure about slope rating as it played pretty easy and relatively short. Bunkers were terrible. Biggest issue was how unplayable the greens were especially on back after being punched. MAKE SURE TO CHECK IF PUNCHED, DO NOT PLAY IF SO AS IT IS A TERRIBLE WASTE OF $$$! Yes every course is like this but better sand on the greens then in traps; use it for your bunkers.

This course was in great shape. The greens putted true and the grass in the fairway was nice to hit off of. The nicest course I have ever played on. Our round was pretty slow as we had three groups playing ahead of us. The most sand traps I have seen on a course. They made for some very challenging shots. The staff was excellent and the food was good. I plan to play here again.

Most people don't know about "ccsc"... Meaning the fact that it is reasonably priced and much nicer than every other course in Florence. The greens are disease free, fairways are great, bunkers are well kept, the cantina is brand new. Love this course . Nice layout as well.

My 1st time playing and it won't be the last. Fantastic design, challenging old style course. I kept thinking that the course was a Donald Ross design, then did some research and read that Elis Maple hadworked under him. Course was in good shape although you can tell that it has struggled in the past few years. The greensrolled very true and quick.


Player Tip: Lots and lots of bunkers, fwy/greens. A range finder helps with what clubs to hit off the tee.

Played the course today(7 June) andthe course was in fantastic shape. The greens are the healthiest I have seen this year and rolled true and had good pace. They have already aerified the tees and fwys and are doing the greens this comming monday, I'm sure in a couple weeks they will be back in great shape. This is just a really, really good course and so much fun to play.
