The course has been totally re-designed since the last time I played it back in 2012. I don't recall the course needing a re-design so I was surprised by just how much had changed. I'd go back and play it again with the new knowledge obtained. Water on 16 of 18 holes so be prepared for that. The greens were top dressed and didn't hold very well on some of the newer greens. That's to be expected (but usually in hindsight).

Excellent course with awesome vistas and danger lurking at every corner. Strategic water hazards and bunkers with elevated tees and soft greens. Stimpmeter between 11-13. Direction of blades key in reading puts.

Excellent clubhouse facilities.

Beware Valet Parking is mandatory and tips are expected at every encounter.

Practice facilities are good. Did not see ambassador

This was my first time back after remodeling. Some of the holes were changed/ moved due to future hotel expansion. Some parts of the fairways were being resodded. The greens were in great shape and rolled true. Rain at the beginning of the round slowed them down a bit. The practice facility is excellent. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The pace of play slowed down as the groups in front of us but still finished in about 4 hrs.

Played early morning round with 2 of the course starters/marshals. Had a great time. Teed off 7am, so, it was understandably damp with the morning dew. New greens were gorgeous to the eye. Still hard, but not as fast as they looked. It was weird to make "the turn" by the starters shack and concession stand between holes 7 & 8......

Overall, it's a very good course for the Central Florida area.

This was my first time playing the new layout. There were several changes. A few very challenging holes, especially into the wind, the par 3 7th was playing 240. One of the longest par 3's I have played in quite some time. Always in good shape. The greens looked like they were slightly top dressed but rolled very true. Give the new layout a try, you won't be disappointed!

I live in the Orlando Area and play golf twice a week. We played Shingle Creek after the redesign has been completed and the corse reopened for play.

This course went from one of the 5 very best courses to play in the Orlando Area to a course I will most likely not play again.The original layout was ruined by the designer.

It is no longer a joy to play this course. What a shame!

very good layout. Pretty open off the tees. Very good looking holes with some nice contours. Currently the course is undergoing some changes and large portions of the fairways are dead and spray painted green. Talked to one of the staff and he explained the grass has been purposely killed to make the changes. Honestly, it doesn't matter than much. If you can hit down on a golf ball youre in business. . greens are very well maintained but played on the sluggish side the day I played. Very nice staff!

Really enjoyed playing the course. Pace of play was great as I did not have to wait on any holes even though there were many golfers. Course conditions were good. Greens had great pace and were smooth. The course is preparing to close for renovation soon so some areas were killed, but that did not affect the playing conditions, actually enhanced them in some cases, as you got a little more roll off the tee.

Looking forward to coming back after the renovation.

Very wide and forgiving fairways. Course was in pretty good shape. Looked very brown but still had lots of grass. Virtually no rough at all. Greens very very good - fast and true - the best part of the course for sure. Enjoyable round although the pace was not very fast 4:45 to play. Course is pretty straight forward with not a lot of memorable holes

Shingle is one of my favorite golf courses and we play it every time we travel to Orlando. It is on the upper end of our budget at just over $100.00 but we have always found it a good value. The course is closing at the end of this month for redesign and they have not over-seeded or maintained the course to its usual perfection. They are spray painting many fairways and around greens to try to give some contrast for making shots. Listen, I'm all for that but if your going to keep a facility open for a few more weeks that is not anywhere up to scratch...don't charge regular rates. I was so embarrassed to take 3 friends there who had never played and whom I convinced this course was worth the extra money. I was shocked at the whole situation and felt like it was just a money grab by a usually top notch golf facility. This whole situation was made worse by the fact that we had previously played 3 or 4 other golf courses in pristine condition for a lot less money. Unfortunately, Shingle Creek is no longer on my list of places to play and I'm happy I have understanding friends.

The course has a great layout however the conditions are not the best. Greens are patchy in parts and tee boxes are also patchy.

We got a hot deal on golfnow and I would not of said that was worth the money never mind paying full price of $100+
