This is a tight track, placing a premium on shot placement. Views form the tee boxes are often deceiving. It was great fun.

The course was in excellent condition, with the exception of the greens on the back nine. There were a lot of rough spots.

If you are going to play here, you must be patient and tolerant of players on the course that maybe don't play so much and are less than courteous or even aware of traditional golf etiquette.

Very nice track, very windy the day I played so there were a few adjustments to be made. A 200+ yd par 3 into the wind was tuff! Greens rolled true and lots of water and sand so come prepared to place shots accordingly, I'd like to play it again without the wind!

This is a very interesting shot makers course with lots of water and sand in play, probably the most difficult I've played in many years especially on a windy day. Hard to figure out your shots without some familiarity with the course. The GPS on the cart was a big help. Some fairways rolled out while others no roll with no recent rain. Large greens very firm and never had need for divot repair even with the steepest approach. Some really tough pin placements close to edges of greens and others in middle of slope. Bunkers and traps in relatively good shape considering the number in play. Forward tees offered significant distance help for ladies.

My first time playing the course this past week and WOW what a course! The conditions are the best around Orlando and I have played golf everywhere as I'm in the golf industry with the Golf Channel. Terry helped me with booking my tee time and was able to secure me a great time at a fantastic rate. The layout is challenging and the greens are very slick and roll true. You can tell a lot by the way the greens are kept and Hawks Landing's are perfect. The tee boxes are impressive as they were in as good of shape as the pristine fairways. Lay out was challenging but fair. Customer service really stood out as being one of the best golf facilities in the area. I left my phone at the driving range and as I made the turn, I saw a member of the staff greet me with phone already in hand. I'm sure the panic look on my face gave away that I'm the one who lost the phone. The person at the counter knew my name as I walked up to check in which was very impressive as it was my first time playing golf at Hawks Landing. They have water bottles already in the cooler and fresh apples at the cart area. Post round I talked to the head pro Mike Hodgins about booking another round as my playing partner and I were so impressed with the experience. Very impressed by the personal service and care. Add top notch conditions and this golf course is worth every penny. Check it out if you're a local or visiting Orlando. You may just have a new favorite course.

Nice golf course - fairways are wide enough to survive on a not so good day, they are in decent condition - rough is not a factor - greens in very nice condition, reasonably fast and rolling very truly. Quite firm for a Florida golf course but allowing the ball to spin nicely. Pace of play was very good today.... there was a really slow foursome that let groups play through and then it was all fine. Only negative thing I can think of is the proximity to some streets - some hold are therefore somewhat loud. GPS equipped carts are very nice.

Course was in immaculate condition and plays much longer than the stated yardages this time of year. We played the GREEN tees at stated 6200 yards. All most all the the drives would land and stop! Roll about a foot or so. Greens held very well and were medium pace, very slow up hill. Ample fairways as is typical resort course, nice cart lady too! Would play again. I shot 80 with 3- 3 putts.

I played this course last year(2016) and enjoyed the layout so we went back this year. The course conditions were better than last year. From teebox to fairway to green the conditions were excellent. The starter mentioned that he has not seen the course in better condition for over a decade and he is right. Hawk's Landing is not a long course but it does offer a variety of long and short holes. This course is a must play when I am in Orlando.

This was our 4th time playing this course and still look forward to this round of golf each year.

Course is in good condition and one of the more challenging resort courses. Pace of play is always good and staff are friendly and helpful.

Hole #4 is a tough shot maker hole. Back nine has lots of water so bring extra golf balls

Highly recommend playing this course as you won't be disappointed. Will be extra challenging for high handicappers

My wife and I played Hawk's Landing while on a vacation to Florida. Our starter was very friendly and helpful and the beverage cart person came by often and was also very friendly. Their employees made a real positive impression on us. Course was in very nice condition, particularly the greens and we were able to get around on a Monday afternoon in 3 3/4 hours. There is quite a bit of freeway noise on the front nine, but its a nice resort track with some challenging water holes that require hitting your targets. After our round, we stopped into the sports bar at the Marriott World Center and had a nice casual dinner and received 20% off because we had played the course. We definitely would return to Hawk's Landing on our next trip to Orlando

I have played here about 10 times. It is a little pricey (that's just the way it is for a fabulous golf course) but if you can afford it, do yourself a favor and play here. The people are very nice. The course is excellent and in great shape.
