Very dry with our weather and no rain right now. Fairways pretty burnt up and most greens had an issue somewhere. No 12 Par 3 had the green divided into 2 greens which was very surprising

Somewhat challenging, players in front and behind us moved quickly. Green were in good shape fairways were dry in certain spots but really help me with my drives and boy I needed that. I would suggest this course to beginners as well as hot shot golfers.

Played today and did not saw the aeration warning until after already booked my round. The front greens were in decent condition even though they had been aerated. The back nine was a different story, greens were slow and most of them had big spots were there was just dirt, regardless of the aeration holes that were not an issue. The last time I played there back in February the greens were in great condition but today they were awful, specially on the back 9.

We apologize if the Aeration Alert was not made clear enough in the tee time notes prior to booking your round online. As our greens continue to heal from the recent aeration we hope you'll give us another chance in the future.

course needs water and several repairs on both the fairway and the greens. Cost was excellent and cart worked well. Maybe wth some rain and weeding it would work well as the layout is good. Joe L Hughes

It's a good course to practice hitting balls on sandy fairways (some of them). It's always wendy since it is close to the ocean. It would be great if we can see the view of the ocean but no. I played this course maybe 4 times since we moved to Ruskin last August. Greens are very slow and maybe 2 or three are in major disaster. Fairways are not in a good shape and it need more grass. It's a 6 minute drive from where I live so it is a great course to play a quick round on the weekend.

Play this course with low expectations and you just might decide to go back. The greens are bumpy and bare in areas. The fairways are about 50% decent and 50% dirt and weeds. You cannot play the ball down, you have to "noodle it" to find something that resembles grass at times. Most tee boxes were decent. What shines throughout the round is the quality of the layout. RTJ's design is apparent everywhere. If this course was properly maintained it would be one of the finest in the area.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! This course was in horrible condition. I have played public courses in better shape then this. Greens bumpy and bare spots. Fairways were hard and had bare spots. This place could be great. Has potential. But way over priced for how bad this course is in. I even had a hot deal and wouldn't go back even if they gave it to me for free. Save your money. Pay the extra and go somewhere nice. You been warned!!!
