I have played this course for many years and two years ago I said we would not play it again. It in deplorable condition. The greens were very thin and crusty with patches of dirt on most greens. The tee off areas were like plowed fields. As Arnold would say. 'I WILL NOT BE BACK" . We paid a golf now price of $39.00. + Tax + golfnow fee of $9.96. and in Davenport Fl. Area there many courses that would be a much better choice .

The condition of the course was very poor. The greens on the front nine had been airiated and top dressed, but had not been cleaned and ironed could not putt on these at all. Back nine had been partially airiated sanded and not ironed again, very bumpy. The fairways on the whole course were burned out and bare in spots and had recently been watered very heavily. There were no warnings on the website of these conditions and would not recommend the course to be played for at least two months until it is in better condition. Would not go back.

We arrived at the course and were met by Kevin, and he was one of the better cart men, starters and greeters I have ever met (we travel annually for golf holidays). He directed us to Carol in the pro shop who was also very friendly and helpful.

The course is a fair and friendly course with the pictures showing accuracy on the holes. The only issue we had was the poor shape of some of the greens. Many had sand spots and fill to try to give a smooth surface but it didn't work very well. There are trouble holes on the course and should have markings to let you know how far it is to the water or the ravines. Overall, we had an enjoyable day and would be pleased to play it again.

It is the type of course you need to play more than once as you need to learn the a=hazards and distances to them.

Nice course design with a variety of shots required. Water on almost every hole. Tee boxes need some help. They were in rough shape. Greens were mainly good but some were spotty. Overall a good place to play for reasonable rate.

I have played here many time while on vacation since 2000 but won't be anymore. Pace of play was abysmal, 5 hours, 15 minutes, long waits on every tee.

Changes in ownership over the years has really affected this course and staff.

The greens were a little rough but they were trying to get them back. They had sanded and put weed killer/liquid fertilizer on some bad spots.

Lots of Old holes on the greens that were not always smooth so your ball bounced.

Fairways and around the edge of the greens were spotty but that was because of lack of rain.

Overall a good course that will be improving as there work takes hold and we get some rain.

Had a great time with our 7 guys. Lots of laughs with the staff, both inside and outside. We were treated very well by all. Course was in good shape considering the time of year. Play this course every time I'm in the area for the tricky layout. Once you've played it, you understand why it's better when you know where the water is!
