We have always like the layout but the greens were spotty with lots of weeds etc growing in them. VERY slow and bumpy. Needs work here. Birds and alligators added to our experience.

The course conditions are by far the worst I have ever seen. People should be paid to have to put up with how bad the greens are. If you don’t enjoy golf in any way please play here. I don’t expect much out of public courses like this, but there are several nearby that are at least playable. I really just don’t know how the greens could be so bad. There is more crab grass and dirt than there is actual green grass.

Course was in decent condition but needed some more accurate yardage markers. It also could use some directional markers when you finish some of the holes not sure which way to go. Not enough to stop me from returning though.

Course is getting better as the fairways are in good shape, bunkers are soft but need continued attention, greens are in good shape but slow. Superintendent is doing the best he can with what he has to work with.

Course amenities is fair in that in the morning there is no snack bar available, coffee and drinks are but that is all as at the present time only one person staff is available to check guests in.

Course layout was good, and tee to green condition was ok but only considering the hurricane and extreme wet weather. Greens were appalling, with crab grass, bare spots and no recent rolling, making true putting impossible. Sand traps were full of crabgrass. Sorry, but off the list at any price.

Played yesterday to keep my game going while traveling in FL for Golf Channel Am Tour tournaments at Disney and PGA Natl. Course is challenging and I like the layout. Lot's of water and with the wind, lost more balls (4) than 3 days of tournament play. I suspect the course is recovering from the damage of Hurricane Irma. Fairways thin and greens very spotty.

No sand in trap and generally in poor shape. Give it to Spring to recover and this should be a good track. Price through Golf.now creates values so while conditions where not ideal, price was great, thus a good value. Staff very friendly and a great museum in the 19th courtesy of a donation with artifact of old golf that I haven't seen since my last trip to Scotland last year. Would give it another try next year after it recovers.

Considering how much rain Florida has received over

the past month, the course was really fun to play. The course is old and the clubhouse presents some real old time photos and displays . If you play here, enjoy the surroundings of old style course that needs a little

tender and care to get the course back in shape after a wet n wild hurricane season.

Honestly, one of the reasons we chose Kissimmee Bay Country Club is because we've played it numberous times over the past 15 years. And, I must share wth you how disappointed we were with the condition of the course this week. We actually played twice (Monday, August 21st and again Thursday, August 24th.).

Many issues confronted us. First, it appeared to us that the course maintenance team must have been on vcacation (for quite some time).

Where or when they had mowed, they dumped the grass trimming right long side the fairways. So, if you hit into the rough (out just off the fairway) it was often hard to find your ball as it was covered by the trimmings.

Number two, many of the greens had not just brown spots but areas where they're was actually no grass. Number three, there was grass growing in the sand traps, and there was actually no sand to speak of.

The greens were bumpy and very inconsistent. The ponds were green and many smelled.

Regardless of the price, we doubt we'll choose this course again for quite some time.

Sad, sad, sad!!!!!

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you don't have a more positive experience to share from your two rounds with us. This past spring and summer were rough on us but with all the renovations we have done lately, the course is definitely on its way back up. We hope you'll give us another try in the future.
