If you got a teetime, how can it be delayed with a starter in the course?? Very slow pace, not good. But friendly staff is ok and makes a difference.

Course was in great shape as usual...some of the best greens in the Orlando area. Pace was a bit slow for an afternoon / early evening round though...could have used a marshal to limit the 5-somes and to keep slower groups maintaining the pace with the groups ahead.

Clearly the staff over booked the course

We were Paired with sr tee players 30hcp or so, we are a 5 and 6

They were nice so that was fine

Pace was not managed

At once point after 3 holes we were backed up 3 groups waiting in front and one in back

That's 6+ groups on a single hole!!!!

An employee came around once and simply said it was busy

We quite after 9 as it had peaked to over 3 hours at that point

Just not acceptable at all

I reported the slowness and that I was calling it quits in the clubhouse and the attitudes I received was unreal

Clearly they don't care about customer service at all

The course itself was very dry, greens were ok

Cart girl was very friendly

I will never go back and ensure no one I know ever plays there

Too much competition for that type of experience

The course was in good condition, despite the frost delay. The greens are large, fast and complex - a little bumpy at times due to play frequency and folks not fixing ballparks - but all in all, very nice.

We played this course 3 times this week. There is more elevation change than you would expect in FL! Very friendly staff. The only problem we had in the three days was on Saturday. We were behind a group of non-golfers and the pace of play was very slow on back nine.

A lot of players on the course and play was a little slow but acceptable not much overseeding but enough to say they did it which led to more than a few poor lies.greens were fairly true and the pin placements were some of the toughest that could be had on most greens. They somehow don't want any good scores to be played.

Overall a little pricey for the quality but a friendly course non the less

I try to play this course whenever I come to the Orlando area. This time I have played it twice and really enjoyed it. On both days we got out before 8am and finished in under 4 hours (pretty unusual for March in Orlando). I love the layout and find it challenging but fair. The only negative is that there are a number of approaches where the grass is burned out and it's very hard to hit the ball cleanly.
