I've played at PGA village many times during the last few years and was looking forward to returning monthly for a round or two this summer and fall. Unfortunately, Wanamaker was in poor condition. The greens were like concrete--impossible to hold and very difficult to putt. There were large swaths of burned out fairway on many holes. While you can adjust to these issues by changing your strategies, you can't adjust to the horrendous pace of play. We were plus 45 minutes at the end of 18 holes. There were three groups on every par 4 and par 5. There were no rangers or warnings on the in-cart GPS. Apparently PGA has closed Ryder for the remainder of the year, so overcrowding is going to be a problem until next season. I have to recommend finding somewhere else to play for the rest of 2017.

Always enjoy playing this course at PGA Village.

great variety of holes - open driving holes with tough greens and hazards.

Redone clubhouse is nice with great practice facilities around.

The Dye Course might have already been my favorite of the golf courses at PGA Golf Club, but after it got new greens and other bunker improvements, it's that much better. Conditioning was terrific and the greens, though firm, rolled flawlessly. As far as the design of this course, remember it was designed by Pete Dye, so it isn't easy. Yet it's generous off the tee, so very playable. Also of note, while I gave it four stars, if available, I would have given it 4 1/2.

Played the newly re-done Wannamaker Course and must say the changes were worth it. The course was in as good of shape as anywhere I've ever played, greens were immaculate and rolled true, rough was long, but not so crazy that you couldn't play out of it, sand was nice and fluffy. Also, I played well there, so that always helps.

Aside from the golf, the staff was very friendly and the food was excellent The restaurant and porch has a great view of the 18th hole and looked like a great place to watch a game. Had a great time and I'd definitely go back again.

Took a nice stroll down from Orlando with some buddies to see the newly re-sodded Wanamaker Course and new member facilities (locker room, restaurant, etc.).

It was a terrific day and a good time was had by all. The course was in great shape and the greens were as good as anything I've played in this state all year.

While I enjoyed the whole layout, I was particularly fond of the par 3s and the variation of shots/clubs you could hit into each - you could hit anything from a 7-iron to a 3-wood.

Next time down I'll plan to have more time and take a look at the other two courses on the property.

Played Ryder with the wife. Started around 2 PM. No one in front and the next group behind didn't tee off for half an hour.

Extremely friendly folks there. Plenty of room on the range, extra range balls. Course was in excellent shape with a small...very small spot here and there on a couple greens.

Pick tees wisely and you'll have a relaxing round, chance for birdies. Greens were fast, rolled true but as with courses down here watch the grain.

The course isn't one of the most unique as the layout is average in my opinion. They paired me up with a pro from Canada who has played all of the courses at the village and he told me the Ryder is the most interesting course of the 3 based on the layout. The greens are well maintained and the run is consistent.

You either like this course or you hate it. It is not one of Peter Dye's most difficult courses but it is a real amateur challenge from the Gold tees. When the wind blows and the greens are firm, it makes you think. Playing from the silver is a challenge while the middle tees make for a fun day. So match the difficulty level with your game and you should have an enjoyable day. This is one of my favorite Florida courses.
