It is somewhat intimidating for a senior single female avid golfer to approach a golf course looking for a game and although tee times made were not adhered to the staff especially John Mike and andrew made me welcome and comfortable on the four days that I played

The only negative to my experience was finding a crack on my windshield on car left in parking lot

And yes the course is showing signs of hurricane damage but we should show some patience and rely on the fact that the staff cannot wave a magic wand to fix it all at one time!!

Thanks guys for a great time st your course!

I have played this course many of times over the years as I live close by. However, I have never seen it in this poor of condition! Tee Boxes are in ok condition, Fairways are quite dry and need of watering, not a huge difference between fairways and the rough.. sand traps are not swept out daily or even probably weekly. Footprints through all of them as well as erosion as not well maintained. This course once had plenty of flowers, wood chips and a better ambiance then today. Hurricane debris still throughout golf course in January? It just looked so depressed and worn out. Hard to find yard markers on the course. I thought in the past they had them on sprinkler heads. I even thought at one point golf carts had GPS? NOT TODAY! With the only marking on cart path for 200 (Blue Dot), 150 White Dot, 100-Red Dot, I need my iphone golf app on to help. Greens are in fair condition, many dry spots and wish they absorb more on approach shots.

Not really sure where all the money went after the sale of the other 18 hole golf course that was once part of Bonaventure. It sure has not been reinvested into this golf course. Completely disappointed that the golf course owners sold it and now the community has tacky looking homes are built on them.

A course that the maintenance department gave up on. Weeds, bald spots, poor tee conditions and lots of hurricane trees down some four months past the event. Was once one of the best courses in the region. Now looks forgotten and exploited. Ranking with the other local courses that are money grabs. Killian Greens, Heron Bay, Orangebrook, Flamingo Lakes, Cost del Sol are only worse in the area. Not again my friend.....

Hi, Grant. As your username mentions, Hurricanes in Florida have hit golf courses hard. While we are working to get everything back to par, the state is recovering as well. We wish all it took was calling someone to get out to the course and clear all of the trees, but that is easier said than done. With the recent storms, arborists are spread thin and working on government work before recreation. We pride ourselves on the history and excellent our course has delivered over the years. While the current condition is by no means our standard, we hope you can understand that recovery takes time and we are trying. Ideally, you can give us another chance once everything is back to normal. Thanks for the review.

My husband & I love this course when the price is right, and although we realize this is weekend golf, we thought the pace was extremely slow. We didn’t see a ranger for a good part of the round, and at times, there were three groups backed up on the tee. The layout is challenging and we enjoy playing here, however, we won’t be back on a weekend.

Course conditions are pretty good for the rate. Greens were rolling quite fast which was a surprise. Fairways are patchy , same as tee boxes. Sand traps were the worst. Looks like they don't ever rakethem which led to some terrible lies. The layout is really challenging though which I liked. For a hot deal rate it was a good value.

Walked Off course after nine holes when 2 hours and 30 minutes hit. Not overly busy for a 11:45 am tee time but no management system at all to hold players to 4/4.5 hour round. I stopped by 18 tee box to see what time that group tees off and they were off at 9 am, it was 2:30!!! Yes 5.5 hour round. It is a shame because it is a fun layout.
