Course was in average condition, especially for the price they charge. Greens were extremely undulating and in average condition with a lot of grass and grain present. Layout is very average, only a couple of memorable holes. Not sure I would play again given the premium charged for playing.

forced carries, multiple hazards, bunkers and difficulties, make it a great course for all. Most greens were fast and true. A few were very grainy and slower. Tough but fun. Likely one of the best central Florida courses. Only complaint is that my t-time was changed to a later time and we barely finished before dark

The day we played it was extremely windy which added to difficulty of the course. Holes 9 and 11 are over 400 Yards and played very tough. The greens are incredible, not 1 was flat and some had severe undulation with very tight pin placements which put a premium on chipping and putting.

I was impressed with the new green found them to run true and for most part very quick.

Our pace of play was great with the first hold up at the short par 4 14th, players waiting for the green to clear prior to teeing off.

The staff was great very friendly and accommodating.

I will be placing the course again this week, really looking forward to a less windy day.

We had booked unaware that a competition was being held on the same afternoon but credit to the staff on keeping things moving. Really enjoyed the front nine but on the back nine there are two very short par 4s that hold play up. Naturally the longer hitters wait until the green is free and this creates hold ups. We played at a competitive rate but now the prices have increased I would rate it lower on value for money.

Shingle Creek is a 5 star resort; they recently added new hotel rooms, and removed some holes near the hotel, and added new ones. THe new holes are drab, quite unlike the other 14 holes. The new holes are straight away, no character to them. The other 14 holes are wonderful, however.

Very nice course. Played behind a tourney 3hrs for 9 holes and there was no way to finish the back 9. The mgmt was super friendly and helped me out by giving me tips as to how to check play prior to booking so I wouldn't get caught in the same situation. Would love to pay again. Course was very nice and plush...

First time I played this course. Got the hot deal price. Was paired up with another golfer who suggested we play from the gold tees. That made the course about 6700 yards and challenging. The greens have enough undulation to make putting interesting.

Would definitely play again if the price is right

Played in late Oct. Hot and sticky day but rain held off until we were driving in off 18th. Fair but challenging but he then again most are for me. Fairways well maintained, rough fair and greens fast and true. Nice pro shop if you need anything and really nice facility. You will not be disappointed.

U.S. Open slick greens with severe breaks. Get the speed down quick or your handicap will suffer. Staff was super friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Great layout that tests your game and your will. Had a great day and will play again soon.

Overall this course is nice. Some holes had new sod in the middle of the fairways. Pace of play slow at times as the group in front of us had zero course etiquette and would not allow us to pass. I would definitely play this course again once the re soded areas are grown in. Greens were all about pin placement and it’s easy to 4 putt if your on the wrong side.

This is the first time I have ever felt the need to review a course in Orlando in the 25 years I have been coming here from England. The round took 5 hours 20 mins, we never seen a course ranger all the way round. People behind us walked off. Maybe if the course ranger rode with the cart girl he may see how slow the golf is, as we had 3 visits from the wonderful cart girl the one plus of the day. There was no mention of all the work that had been carried out on the fairways before we teed off. This is a very nice course I have played before, currently not in great shape. With a massive problem of the need to speed play up. What happened to all the marshals sat on and around the first tee when we teed off.
