They just sanded the greens, and in spots very heavy, not spread out evenly.

Other than that, very good experience

And very good restaurant for lunch!

I can't say enough about how nice the people, conditions and amenities were. Complimentary water bottles, huge oranges and apples were plentiful. Cart girl came by 2-3 times per 9. Fairways were wide enough to keep my consistently errant tee shots playable.

My wife and I also played Ritz Carlton, Panther lake and Waldorf Astoria on the same weekend...yes it was a pricy trip. While those three were each great courses Tranquilo blew them away and for less than half the price of Ritz or Waldorf

This was our 20th round in Orlando area over 10 days & was the gem & icing to complete the trip.Pristine golf club with an incredible course design. Formerly Disneys Osprey Ridge, this is clearly the best track we have played in the area. Greens were flawless but slightly slower than we would have preferred.Cart wagon amenities were not adequate as hoped but the golf excused that.

Highly recommended!! Must play

We'll all be returning for a 36 hole day next year!!

From the moment our group of eight arrived to the time we left was an excellent experience. If you enjoy a golf course where every hole offers something different to the eye you will not be disappointed at Tranquilo. The course conditions were exceptional and the greens were in great condition, This golf course is definitely worth the premium price.

This is a beatiful course. I have to say it is really awesome how this course finishes with 17 and the par 3 18th! The greens were in perfect shape, the only difference will be rolling for the senior tour coming. This should be a must play on the list, too many great holes to mention!!

We tee'd off as a 2 ball, but joined up with the 2 ball ahead of us, as we were waiting on each tee from the start. Things did not improve, and the course manager actually came out to the 18th tee to apologise. He said that their were a group playing as two 4 balls that had slowed everyone up. I think a course of this status should actively encourage players to speed up if they are behind (a very generous) a 4.5 hour pace.

This spoilt the whole round for us. The course had a nice layout, but not as good as nearby Grand Cypress, and did not justify it very high green fee price.

Location of the club house seems to have been an afterthought as it provides no views of the golf course. And the course layout offers no opportunity to start on the back 9.

We were offered no compensation.
