We played this course fresh off the plane from ohio even before we could check into our room. It is an average Florida course at compared to some of the other places we played. It was an off season time, but if you look around a little you can play a lot nicer course for a little more money. The carts were top notch if that is a concern for you.

If you enjoy hitting off hard pan fairways this is the place for you. Very little grass make fairway shots almost like bunker shots. The course and golf shop are in poor condition. Golfers looking for cheap golf probably make up most traffic on the course. Very tight fairways with lots of hazards lurking.

The course has been neglected. It is in pretty poor shape, greens are sad as well as fairways, for the price I guess you can't expect much, but it needs lots of tender loving care. For a cheap round of golf, I guess it is fine.

This is a poor course, I would not play it again or recommend it to anyone. I believe the course will be closing soon, from what some of the people told me. The club house was just a small run down building with nothing to offer. The price was right for the course, but I believe they could improve the over all conditions. Do not play at this course...

Many bunkers are in play, and most are untended.<br/> Greens vary from good to poor.<br/> Tee boxes vary from good to poor.<br/> Fairways are typical for inexpensive golf at this time of the year - short and fairly hard

Lovely location and many challenging holes but the course has been allowed to slip into the not fully maintained league of courses. It's hard to believe that the golf carts are so well maintained when the ground staff seem to be absent?<br/> At the price you pay the challenge is a give away but don't expect a $100+ course condition .

Played this course for over 15 years and this is the worst it has ever been. Weeds everywhere, even the greens. Clubhouse was very musty smelling and the GPS monitors have all been removed. Appears to be for sale. Saw a listing for the course on the internet. Staff was friendly but understaffed. Would not play again

I like playing courses that are out of the lime light. I played with two great guys who play there all the time. Players do not go back to the same golf course over and over for no reason. The price to play was great. I saw an alligator in a fairway trap. A turtle was laying eggs in a green side bunker. I will definitely play here again.

Let me begin by saying I booked this round at the last minute primarily to test some new golf balls. Booking on Golf Now was fast and easy as usual. Check in at course was smooth and got to tee off early and as a single. That should have been a clue since it was only 11:20 on a Sunday morning.

Fairways are in bad shape with not much green grass. Does not look as if they have been overseeded. Rough is not always distinguishable from fairways. Greens are okay and look as if they have been seeded. They are mostly firm and don't hold much. Moderately fast speed putting and mostly true rolls.

Would not recommend this for anyone who is even moderately serious about their game. Would not play again unless a lot of improvements are made.

P.S. To show how bad it is, cut a finger on a splayed flag on #15. Fiberglass imbedded in finger.
