The greens were rolling fast and true. The fairways were sparse, looks like they need to be reseeded. Overall in decent condition. need to keep the ball on the playing area. Balls hit out of bounds will be lost. Good test of golfing skills. Not a bad course to keep in the rotation.

I normally really like this course. However it does not drain well so there are muddy places a week after rain. The greens that they re did several years ago are now full of patched repairs.

The DeBary course this day was very slow paced. I don't know why but we waited at every shot. The foursome ahead of us waited too. We didn't see anyone tracking the pace of play. Some of the greens have big patches where the grass was replaced. We waited 20 minutes to place our lunch order because the restaurant had only one waitress. In the end, a round of golf plus lunch in the restaurant was 6+ hours. The lunch, I ordered a hamburger, was very delicious.

I was interested in seeing if the course was as good as the members' reviews suggested. What a disappointment. I'm not a super player but the game is a lot easier when you actually have GRASS on the fairways. Tee boxes need some work but hanging in there. Greens were OK but lightening fast with very tough pin placements. I felt more than half were simply unfair to the average player. Apparently the course was set up for a member-member that was being played the next day. The Scottish design has some nice features and some reachable holes.

The course is recovering nicely from the effects of the hurricane and all the rain the past couple of months. Still a little wet in areas and they have had to repair some areas on the greens but overall the course is in really good condition. I will definitely be playing there again soon.

Course is in excellent shape. Staff very friendly. My only criticism was that the pace of play was extremely slow. We sat on several tee boxes for 10 minutes or more waiting for a twosome ahead of us to play, but they were backed up by a threesome ahead of them, etc. it made the round extremely long. Otherwise a great course for the money.

Played it several times in the past and have met different conditions there already. Was surprised, that despite the hurricane and lot of rain it was not in bad condition at all, although some parts are still wet and have “additional lakes” = lateral water. But the fairways were really not bad. Greens are good, though some need attention, because there are spots with little grass, but still they are fairly fast and true and well playable. Tee boxes and bunkers are OK. The course has an interesting layout, is partly challenging and requires straight shots. Staff was not seen a lot. Nice stop after the first nine for some food and beverage, very friendly. 9th and 18th hole by the lake has very wet fairway in the front of the green.

Overall, it is really not bad and can be well played. Excellent pace there, maybe due not very friendly weather with a little rain. We had a very low rate with a hot deal from Golfnow.

Went just after hurricanes and other wet weather situations in following weeks...course is pretty much very wet in about 33% of the holes...This course does not take a lot of water easily, pools and ponds everywhere. Just the location I presume. Low lying area. When its dry its not bad at all. Will return in the fall when it dries out

I was interested to see how this beautiful track looked after hurricane Irma. There was definitely some damage with multiple trees down, debris, and standing water but overall it came thru the storm well. Staff has already done a good job getting the debris moved aside so it's not an issue. This course for the most part drains great and there is only a couple of issues, in particular #11 but it is still very playable.
