Totally enjoyable course. It is almost like a Mountain course which is highly unusual for central Florida. As an aside, I lost the head cover for my putter and it was turned in to the club house before I even left the course.

A lot of elevation changes and slope made this a challenging yet fun course. It is hard to lose a ball on this course. Course conditions were great. It was a drive to get to from where we were staying but worth the trip.

I thought the greens were in great condition with very good grass coverage and very smooth to putt on.

The greenstaff are to be commended on the condition of the greens in particular but also the course in general was good too.

As a course it has some good holes and is quite generous to the wayward hitter. The best green is the 16th which has a big dip through the middle which makes your approach shot very important to scoring well.

The price for the course was great. The course itself was great. The only issue we had was with the staff. There were multiple holes with no flags in them. The man in the clubhouse wasn't friendly. The starter was better. The young man that got our bags was awesome. Mixed bag to say the least

This is my third time playing the course, and I've enjoyed each round. One of the few courses in central FL where there are substantial elevation changes, including some blind shots. Staff are friendly, course is kept in good shape, and overall value is good.

They let us play as a fivesome when my soldier son showed up at the last minute and gave him discounts on green fee and clubs. We were able to keep up with foursomes. Course is very playable- fairways are a little rough but greens are great. Only negative was lack of a quality clubhouse bar.
