Friendly staff

Found the course a little less then normal condition.

Fairways not as lush and many of greens were spotty with lack of coverage.

Also felt the fringe right off fairways should have been a little shorter cut to as not penalize slight off drive.

This course has a challenging layout and is in good condition. You need to be straight off the tee to score here. This club has a traditional country club feel to it. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. It was encouraging to see a number of juniors getting instruction as we were coming off the course upon completion of our round. Pace of play was slower than it should be at 4:40 and I didn't see a Marshall the whole afternoon. Good practice range and putting green. Well worth trying out if you can keep it straight off the tee.

Great round of golf. Tricky technical course. You have got to think your way round this golf course, trouble everywhere.

It is not a grip it and rip it course, it is just a quiet careful challenge with lots of unseen water and undulating greens.

Great fun if quite frustrating to play if you don't know the course.

This course is great, but on this visit you could see they cut fairways way too low, with bad patches and many greens have problems. I’ll give them a pass this time of year and I know they will get corrected going into season.

Haven't played this course since June, liked it then. Now however all greens were recently aireated, very bumpy and had severe fungus damage which made them basically unplayable. The staff should have let players know the condition of the course

This is a very fine course, with wide fairways, multiple sets of tees that really help, lots of variety, and manageable greens. There is lot of water, but sensible shots are available on every hole.

I was impressed with the course for the price. Very good cart guys and starters, nice clubhouse. I was warned that I would not be hitting driver much and they were not kidding. Fairways were VERY tight and driver on the par 5s were not a good idea with water on the left at 250 yards off the tee on all 4 of them (also warned about that but forgot on the first one). Greens were in excellent shape. Fairways were a little soggy but drained well compared to the amount of rain that FL gets in August. Layout was good with a few curveballs. Did not have the chance to hit the range so not sure about practice facility. I would highly recommend the course to anyone looking for a challenge.

This is a nice coursein good shape. Pretty tight fairways, but goood landing areas if you can hit the ball straight. Water on most holes. Good price in the summer if you can take the heat. Only negative comments are they punched the grees about 6 weeks ago and they haven't fully recovered yet and they don't have food or beverage service on the course or a snack bar at the turn during the summer. But not too many people playing during the summer so the pace of play is good.
