I try to play this course every time I come down to Florida. I thought it was one of the best courses I've seen the first time I played it, but the past few rounds down here I haven't been too impressed with the upkeep of the course. The course just doesn't look like a championship course. The fairways have a lot of divots and burnt out areas. The greens look like they really haven't done much to them. The GPS on the carts didn't seem to play to the yardage that I know my clubs are capable to hitting too. Overall, I wasn't too impressed with falcon's fire like in years past. Now I come down to Florida pretty regularly so I hope that it will be better the next time I decide to play it.

First, let me start out by saying I have been a customer at Falcons Fire for 10 years. I enjoy the layout and applaud its' difficulty considering it's all there in front of you. I played as a single in about 2 1/2 hours which was nice I have seen this course in immaculate condition before, but the course condition now has gone severely downhill. The tee boxes and fairways are playable. The greens however are in rough shape. There are many spots on most greens where they have let the grass go and covered up those spots with sand. I prefer to play my ball as it lies, but don't think I should have to putt through a bunker. Speaking of bunkers, while most were not an issue, many looked very bad, standing water complete with wildlife, and particularly the green side bunker on 17, completely washed out. I know we went from drought conditions to extremely wet conditions recently, but that doesn't explain it. Other courses in the area have dealt with the same weather and do not show this kind of neglect. When it comes down to it, they need to invest more money into this course and look at a different superintendent. I have fond memories of this course and hope that it can be restored to glory soon.

Played here today with 3 buddies. The course was in decent shape considering the long drought followed by the long rains in central Florida over the past 6 months. Fairways were good taking those factors into consideration as well as from plying other courses throughout the area. I must say though that the greens need some work and to the courses credit, you could see areas where they are definitely trying to work on that issue. The speed wasn't bad (probably around a 9ish). Greens didn't seem to roll true. Very inconsistent from green to green. As a low handicap, "true roll" is more important than speed even though most golfers don't know the difference! Also, a little note to golfers who play, LEARN HOW TO FIX YOUR BALL MARKS!!! Overall I was satisfied, it's just hard to be jumping for joy because this course was once one of the best in area as far as conditions go. Layout is awesome, I would just love to see them to continue to bring the greens along. With some work and help from Mother Nature, this course could really get back to being a "gem" in the area!!! As always, I'll definitely be back to play and hopefully they continue to show improvement.

This course offers a great golfing experience. The fairways were in great shape and so were the greens. Falcons Fire should be on everyone's bucket list as a must play course. Last but certainly not least, the staff was extremely cordial and friendly. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

This course was generally a disappointment. Many repairs being done on the course which included patches of grass, even on the greens themselves. Conditions on fairways were "Swampy." Some of the sand traps were completely filled with water. Would not recommend this course, nor will I play it again.

I played falcon fire golf club, the course was very nice and they have very friendly staff and amenities. When I got there at 6am I was the first person there. I got out the car and thought I was in the wrong place til I saw the bag drop area. I walked thru the walkway and went to the pro shop and thought "wow!!!!! This place is amazing and immaculate" very friendly staff. I received complimentary range balls to warm up with before my round.

The course layout was cool and will play regularly there but never around any previous day's rain if we can help it. It seems to have Trouble drainage because it did NOT rain at all on US, but the course was terribly soggy wherever we walked to our balls. Fairways were like walking in the sallow end of a pool and traps were filled with water. Having said that, liked the course itself but I will play it when there has been No rain for a couple of days prior.

After 9 inches of rain in the preceding days, the course was more than wet. Cart Path Only was barely OK, as the cart paths were under deep water in many places. We received a replay coupon due to the conditions, which I had to ask for, but grateful that it was given. This is a great course, but not on the day we played. I look forward to returning.once it dries out..

When reviewing a course I weigh out the condition of the course with the price I paid. This course absolutely lived up to the hype. Great conditions, plush fairways, spongy/fast greens, well-maintained bunkers, challenging layout. At the turn, the staff provides you with cold, lavender-scented towels. Incredible round for what I paid. If the gentleman in the pro shop was as friendly as the rest of the staff, Falcons fire would've been any easy 5 star review, aside from that the experience was extremely pleasant.

Booked tee time on golf now on my last day of vacation in the Orlando area. It explained online that they were under aeration conditions but for the price I decicded to book anyway. Well I have to say the course was in excellent shape the greens were not that bad at all even after being aerated. I did see a lot of negative reviews on this course but I couldn't find one bad thing to say about it. I was the first one on the course that morning so pace wasn't an issue. The carts are set up with gps, sand to repair divots and a small cooler filled with ice. Once again the course is in great shape would highly recommend it to friends and anyone else.

Given the drought, amazed at how green the course was and the great conditions of the greens even though recently airrated. Fairway conditions were great on all 18 holes and very forgiving. Pace of play was excellent. Staff very friendly. Wished the beverage cart worked past 2:00. Nice clubhouse!

I will definitely return.
