An excellent experience from start to finish. Staff were attentive, professional and friendly. Course was in good condition and the fact that it was not busy so we had a quick round was a bonus. Lovely course and great facility - well worth a try!

I'll be back.

Thanks to all who made the day a good one.

The staff is super friendly and everyone helps getting your round started. A snack bar is close to the starter area which is convenient. The course was updated by Arnold Palmer prior to his passing and you can certainly tell that via the undulated greens. Wide open fairways and occasional water trouble, but lots of room for every shot. Many of the bunkers are directly in your line and I landed in several of those. The bunkers are in good condition so it was easy to get out. The staff comes out to the course while you are playing, but are super friendly and offering cool towels and asking about your round. The course is connected to the hotel which was excellent. Played it twice during this stay and will certainly return again.

The course was very nice and in good condition. The new holes are coming in well and not bad as I have read in other reviews. The greens were in great shape and very difficult to read. They were fast with very subtle breaks. If you putted to the wrong side of a mound you could miss your putt by several feet.

The putting green and driving range was in good condition. The course is somewhat challenging. There was more water in the fairways than I would have liked. I played other courses around Orlando with better drainage systems. Some of the bunkers were not in good shape. They needed more sand. The greens were very nice, but very large. The turn being after 7 is unique. I think something should be done to alter this. I would recommend this course if you can get a good online deal. I would not pay the full rate with the current course conditions. JMHO

I have driven by this course numerous times while in Orlando. I'm glad I had a chance to play it. It's a really nice course with a lot of undulations. Pretty challenging from the back black tees but pretty fair from the blue (men) tee. The only things that I didn't like about my round was that it was cut short do to rain and storm. I also didn't like the fact that the gps from the cart and my own app didn't reflect the changes that were made to the course. Other than that I really liked the layout of the course.

Typical hot florida day with a 30 minute rain delay. Course is in really good shape for August. Some of the fairways have some burned up spots but for the most part the tees and the greens are in excellent condition. And shingle creek always does an excellent job with amenities including free valet w/ towel & bag service. Top notch place to play golf!

I'm a local Floridian that plays one to two times a week at wherever I can find a solid deal. (20-40 courses a year) and this is a must play. Great ameneties (including complimentary valet, cold towels & range balls). Greens were solid. Probably aerated 6-8 weeks ago and are rolling true that afternoon round. To my locals, be ready to pay resort prices for your brews and eats! We enjoyed it and would highly recommend that you play!!

close coursed a while back for palmer group to come in a do a redesign. the greens have great undulations and couple new holes added, with a couple taken out. Greens are still new so a little hard. Last time we played was in better condition then yesterdays round. Lots of divots in greens and hairy. Driving range was little beat up as well.

Overall impressed. Worth the price! played the day after hard rain and the course held up very well. Greens rolled true and in great shape. only suggestion is to focus on the bunkers. I know it's not the goal to be playing from the bunkers, however; having consistent sand in bunkers is good to have and up keep of edging the bunkers would make this course look amazing! Everyone loves Bleach White bunkers. But I will for sure be back soon!

They sent us out on the back nine because an outing was on the course and it took 3 hours for us as a twosome to play nine.

Then when when we rounded the turn we encountered 2 foursomes with rental clubs already on the tee. 2 golfers actually "wiiffed" and it didn't get any better. It was clear to me Shingle Creek was more interested in making a buck than creating an enjoyable golf experience. I won't go back and would discourage all others to do the same!

I hadn't played Shingle Creek since before the recent redesign, and the changes are dramatic. Many holes have been changed, some holes are gone and they added a few new holes. The routing changed completely as well as a result of the changes. It seems the Rosen hotel needed more land to build an addition, so a couple holes on the south end of the course were eliminated and two brand new holes were built on the extreme north side of the property. What used to be #10 is now #8 so the "turn" is now after the 7th hole.

The course previous to the changes was fairly easy, with large flat greens and wide fairways. Now the greens are smaller and more undulating, and the layout is more challenging.

The two brand new holes stick out like a sore thumb and obviously don't fit with the rest of the course, but that's unavoidable as they aren't grown it completely.

I think the nines should be switched to make holes #7, 8 and 9 the last three. From the tips, #7 is a 245 yard par 3. #8 is over 600 yards par 5 and #9 is a 505 yard par 4. That would be one heck of a finish!

The staff are always great, and while I would prefer a self-park option, the "complimentary" valet is expected at a full service resort such as this.

Overall the course is in great shape, and worth a visit. While I'm not a fan of the new design, I'll come back and maybe it will grow on me.

I probably fall into the trap of giving courses that are terrible a really bad review and forget to write about the really god ones.

Not this time.

This course is in amazing condition , greens the best I have played this year, fairways perfect too.

So many courses around are terrible at the moment this stands out to make me realize all this talk about drought, etc and the weather are just excuses.....this course shows you what courses can be like at this time of year.

Really hope to get back as soon as possible........

Good course layout but the condition was only average. Need to work on drainage issues, quite a bit of standing water in fairways. Greens had a lot of sand from what I assume was maintenance??

Note: make sure your gps devices are updated due to recent course redesign.
