Conditions you can count on as usual. Not a high end course but a great place to play thanks to the high level of care the management and members make each day. The greens were in great shape...perhaps a little slow, but nonetheless, rolled and cut with very few ball marks. The fairways were also the place to hit your ball. The rough was a challenge in spots....but that is why it is called rough. This course is definitely a hidden gem.

Our twosome (so so players) played yesterday both for the first time there, and we were paired with a single (Walter - a friendly, above average player who knew the course very well). We were right behind a foursome with one lady who seemed to be new to the game. That could have been a recipe for pace of play disaster, but without a word from us, the ranger/starter went over after they teed off and had a quiet conversation with that group. They obviously made a conserted effort to keep things going and pace wasn't a problem all day.

Considerate players, considerate staff. Nice.

The course itself was not in that good a shape, but not bad.

The layout includes a few holes with totally blind "over a hill" tee shots. And there are a couple flagpoles designed to keep you safe by you raising and then lowering a white flag while you're in tee shot range of the group behind you. Of course, no one uses the flags so they are actually, in my opinion, a detriment to safety.

The greens were in better shape than the rest of the course and had their share of slope.

Our tee time was late morning - we had a discounted price - and I would say, overall the value was above average.

Restaurant was closed (Monday's), so can't comment much on amenities.

Hope your experience goes as well.

My lower mark for pace of play was due to my foursome! I joined a threesome on the 1st tee and they were poor players who had no sense that there might be other golfers on the course. Parking carts next to greens, driving through landscaping, taking way too long looking for lost balls, etc. I joined the group behind us at the turn as the 3 stopped for lunch. Anyway, the layout was great. Some remarkable doglegs, blind shots and elevation changes almost every hole were a lot of fun. Course was a bit spotty, but it's winter. I will be back in the summer to play this gem again. Google maps does not lead you to course. The entrance is right on 441, do not pay attention to Google.

We like to play this course occasionally as the layout and course conditions are generally good. This past Saturday, the play got so slow that 3 foursomes were backed up on Hole #10. They have a starter but no ranger which I highly advocate them getting to pace play appropriately.

We left before completing our 18 holes. It seems like residents of Zellwood station jump into playing holes whenever they desire, therefore clogging up players who have registered to play.

While waiting for the group in front of us the people behind us hit a ball which came within a few inches of my husband.

He was angry and said this is not an enjoyable afternoon, we left! We will not return

Fairways and greens were over-seeded which is nice this time of year. The greens had decent speed and fair, not overly undulated. The fairways were in good shape and the couple of bunkers played were nicely raked and sandy, not dirt. Staff was friendly, but could have informed us on the usage of flags signifying when safe to play since a few holes had blind shots. The play was very slow as the six-some playing in front of us was totally wrong, but the perfect weather helped us get over it; more than 4.5 hours to play a 6,000 yard course is too long. Overall a very nice course to get swings in with a 115 slope which offers a good challenge for higher handicap (>12) players.

A very challenging course with a variety of short par fours, long par threes and long dog leg par fives. Many greens well protected with sand traps on the shorter holes. A hookers nightmare on many holes with a large deep caldren.

1st time playing and I was pleasantly surprised. The greens were nearly immaculate. Challenging holes will plenty of hills to obstruct your vision of the green or tee shot. Would definitely recommend

Course conditions good only because there were leaves on the green on some holes and this before it got windy.

First - the GPS direction are way off!! Had to stop into a local business to find out how to get there - now I know! It's a really beautiful course, well kept, greens/fairways 0verall landscape is really nice. It took us 45 minutes from Clermont......didn't think we would ever go back - man, once we got out there and played - we really enjoyed the course - going back real soon!!
