Played from the Gold tees today. If you like to let your driver fly, play from the gold or attempt the black tees...

When it's windy, makes the course a challenge. The greens are in the midst of getting better, so slower than usual, but that will get worked out.

The course winds through the Baytree development beautifully, with generous fairways on most holes....

One big complaint is the restaurant food choices. Basic menu, rottissere hotdogs!! Maybe that will improve.

Otherwise, a great value and fun course!!!

Overall the fairways and greens were is fair shape. Fast greens and the bunkers needed a ton of work overall it was an enjoyable outing an I would recommend to anyone looking for a challenge. The course layout presented an challenge with the water and the undulating fairways.

My daughter is home on leave from the Army, we got in a round in the heat of the afternoon.

We had the whole course to ourselves and because we had a rythem going, we played 18 in 2 hours and ten minutes.

This course needs some love on the tee boxes and greens. Lots of bad spots on both. I played later in the day and didn't see any staff at the bag drop or cart return. The young guy that checked me in was nice enough, but the other guys in the pro shop were not that friendly or welcoming.

The course sets up well for scoring and all the par 5s were manageable. Two holes have blind tee shots that made it hard playing for the first time. Here is water on the course, but doesn't come into play unless you hit a really bad shot.

Played by myself and finished in under 3 hours.

Course over all is in great shape. The warm humid florida weather has the Bermuda rough growing like crazy. Get off the fairway and par gets a whole lot harder real quick! Greens punched a few weeks ago and are just about healed. Pay early and beat the afternoon storms.

If you can get out for $30 or less than Baytree is definitely worth playing. Fairways, Rough, and Greens were in above average condition. Pace of play in the afternoon was good.

It was an interesting layout. A couple of holes on the back 9 really require local knowledge for your tee shot. Greens were in pretty good shape, but a little bumpy. Could use a good roll.

My buddy and I played this course for about the 3rd time in the last 3 months. No starter or ranger resulting in slow pace of play. We had a 5 some in front of us and they moved along pretty well until the 10th hole and then they slowed down. We asked, since we were just a two some, if they would let us through, and they said no because they were having their own private tournament. I called the clubhouse and complained about how slow these guys were and were basically told "don't worry they will play fast." I got the impression that these guys were friends of someone at the clubhouse. After a 3 or 4 more holes, we had 3 other groups waiting behind us lined up watching us tee off after we waited for the 5 some to out of our driver range. Apparently the 5 some were "preferred customers" and all of us other 4 groups waiting behind them were just "chopped liver". We will not return to Baytree anytime soon.

The course has some very challenging holes but plenty of places to "bail out". Tough, but fair. It was a little dry (what isn't right now) but the greens were plush and smooth. Pick your tee wisely or you'll be hitting woods into everything.

Pace was extremely slow

However, the players assistant was monitoring the slow group. That group only did 9 holes. It was much faster after that.

Got around quick in a 3 threesome. Greens true and fast enough to make you think. Only one blind tee shot on the whole course. What you see is what you get.
