Set back in woods not far from Disney World, generous fairways, plenty of bunkers in fairways and around greens, large undulating greens, elevated tees and greens, but after rainy week fairways were wet and soggy, lots of pines and oaks lining the fairways, with wet fairways played long, very nice look to the course, plenty of water hazards too.

I really really wish that I could have been notified of the cart only stipulation. At my age and stanima condition I would've avoided playing that day. I played and survived but having to walk so much took much of the joy of playing. I believe it's the responsibility of golfnow to let me know of any stipulations or condition changes. I will ask in the future if there is anything I should know ahead of time.

My first time playing Tranquilo was amazing...with the exception of the weather. It rained the entire round but that didn't stop us from playing this fantastic course. The conditions were great, the greens rolled exceptionally fast considering they were very wet.

Finishing on a par 3 is another interesting experience...hitting a 190 yard 5 iron over water with a front left pin can be intimidating. Aim to the right side (where the pros would miss) and draw the ball, you'll be just fine.

All in all, I will definitely be back! The staff made for a great experience and who doesn't want a fresh scented towel after the round?!

The course was absolutely beautiful. It has a great layout and very challenging. The greens were a bit of a challenge because it was hard to get the speed down correctly. The reason being, is that they had punched a few weeks ago and have not completely come up to speed, so they were a lot slower than they looked, and on undulating greens, that makes them a little bit tricky. Other than that, it was a great experience and I look forward to playing it again in the future!!!!

We had a great time at Tranquilo (visiting from Canada). The staff were terrific- very friendly and knowledgable. Parts of the course, especially fairways were being rehabilitated, but we were warned by the staff ahead of the round; so, no surprises. I would definitely go back, especially if the fairways get better.

Disappointed. Poor condition. Turf replacement everywhere. Dirt on tees. Greens verticut and slow. No place open to eat Sunday at 9 am. No halfway house. Range closed. Sound like a $125 course to you in the summer? Me either. Not a good show. Honestly. Save your money and try someplace else. Four Seasons is just the name on the same Osprey Ridge course in arguably worse condition then when Disney had it.

Great track, needs work to get to 5 star level for the actually course. Staff was great and 5 star treatment.

Was unaware the fairways were just rolled so there was lines on every hole through the fairways and rough. There were a bunch of spots with dirt/grass missing and I wasn't expecting that.

Overall, loved the layout and the greens were phenomenal.

Despite previous days' rainfall being over 6" the course was open and the greens were great. 90 degree rule for carts was a pain but as the fairways were wet (other courses worse) its would not have been sensible to walk or have carts on them. Welcome and valet staff were very nice and on course facilities were first class.

Course has a great layout and as long as you focussed your iron play on the green and ignored the large bunker or two, it was not that difficult. 18 hole par 3 worth waiting for - great finish

Played here for the first time since the change to Four Seasons ownership. Greens were some of the best I've ever seen. Course layout is poor at the end now. The former 18th hole was bulldozed to make room for a new resort. You end on a par 3, which I don't care for at all. But staff is great, facility is top rate overall.

Great experience all the way around. Restaurant, pro shop, layout, course maintenance and condition, and the friendly people; all added up to a great afternoon of golf. Really liked the free iced-down bottled water, and fresh apples and oranges on the course. I highly recommend this course - can't wait to go again!

1st Time Player!!!! What a great time our foursome had playing the course today. It was absolutely impeccable!!!! The pace of play was fantastic as there was hardly anybody out playing there today. Carts were loaded up with ice and water, towels were provided at the end of our first 18, lunch was served quickly and was very tasteful. Icing on the cake were the fresh apples, oranges and water supply at hole 13 restrooms stop. Staff all the way around were professional, helpful and on top of things. We got in 36 holes before the rain started. Great layout, huge greens that ran very fast but were true, Saw a few deer and couple of turtles wandering about. Will definitely play again.

People were very nice,but course was just okay. Greens were fine, but not really fast. Fairways and tee boxe pretty torn up. Cart had ball and club washers but they didn't work because the drain hole plug was missing and the device would not work with the water we put in draining out immediately. They supplied lots of water which was great and cart girl came often enough.

The condition of the course was immaculate. Everything from the tee to the green was manicured beautifully. The course totally lived up to its five star rating and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who loves to play the game of golf. I paid a little bit more than I usually pay to golf even though I did get a GolfNow discount price but when you play a course of this caliber it was worth every penny. Treat yourself.
