I hate writing bad reviews because everyone is different, but figured I would save someone else from the mistake I made. Please take all this into account, but the course was wet from watering, very windy day and many of my tee shots plugged. Greens were very nice and medium fast, the best part about the course in my opinion but too many straight ahead similar and unmemorable holes.

The front 9 is a little nicer and after the first hole I enjoyed playing it but the back 9 is very quirky requiring irons off quite a few holes for better players. I am visiting from Chicago and playing 14 straight days and have enjoyed many other courses more than North Shore, both for beauty and course design. Just too many straight ahead holes for my tastes. To be fair the twosome I was paired up with love North Shore and play it often and enjoyed their round.

Selected this place because of it’s proximity to the airpoort. Lots of water and some tight holes. Course was in great condition for December play.

Greens were in good shape and rolled well...however there were heavily topdressed areas toward the edges of several greens. The rest of the course made me realize why they overseed courses down here. This course did not overseed and it was dramatically different than the others we've played. The tees, fairways and rough were slightly browning and heading towards dormant? They not as pleasing to the eye as the rest of the courses we played - all of which were very green. North Shore front 9 layout was standard fair for the area....but the back 9 brought in a lot of moss covered trees. It was picturesque, but was overly tight in several places. For first time players it was easy to think you were aiming for the proper placement...only to find yourself blocked by the trees. A couple of the drives needed pinpoint accuracy.

I would have given a 2 star Fair rating.....but after paying $30 for greens fees & a cart - very similar to the $24-$32 we paid for the other 3 courses - my friend who was joining us here was charged $50 to rent a bag of clubs that I wouldn't have paid more than $200 to purchase! If you look a the picture....the Driver is a 20 year old steel shaft not very big Bertha (so we shared my driver), Adams 3w, Beat up TM RBZ hybrid and an at least matching set of Wilson FG irons. I was embarrassed since I was the one choosing the course.

The weather and the course were in excellent shape. The greens were pretty fast, maybe around a 12 to 13 meter. The waste and regular bunkers were in great shape. The fairways were in excellent shape with very little weeds or growth. The course was pretty well marked and I definitely would play there again soon.

This is a good open course. Perfect for a snowbird who hasn't played for a while. Wide fairways and not to much difficulty. Short course a lot of par 4's under 320 and a couple under 300.

Played this course a few times in the past, they have made some great changes since my last round. Cleared a lot of the brush and trees, better sand traps, nicer fairways, greens are better (some do need attention, sand where grass should be), layout is good with some challenging shots. I like the improvements, would like to see more.

Pace of play was horrific, while the ranger tried it was still a 5hr round, could be done better.

North Shore has good greens, and this day the normally wet areas were not too bad. The pace-of-play was also good this day, and my 2some played in <3hrs. Not the normal for me, but I struggled on the par5s & played the par3s in -1. At any rate, Thanx for the outstanding Hot Deals Special, and the congenial ProShop let us go early, which beat the early-afternoon groups.

The course had been recommended to me by a friend in UK; it was in good condition generally (except some of the tees were a bit worn), the greens were reasonably quick and true and the layout was challenging. I'm glad we followed my friend's advice - excellent value for money and would definitely visit again when we come golfing in Orlando in future.

Played twice on a Sunday morning early tee time as group of three golfers and both times we were behind the weekly men’s group lined up on the first tee. Many folks walk course which is nice but slows pace play even more. Both times we played we asked if we could start on the back nine which helped speed up play. Second time we played as a group made tee time on Golfnow for three players and one player had emergency that morning and could not play. No big deal except you get charged for the round unless you call Golfnow hours before to change the number of players. Problem is for early tee times no one is available to change and you get stuck with the bill. GolfNow explains they have no control and this is policy of course and they bill you credit card! You can’t call them to change number if no one is on the phones!? Do recommend be careful when making tee times for more than one player or you will be paying for phantom rounds or donating money to the club. Bad policy with poor excuses from Golfnow especially when you show up to play, get delayed from course over booking in the morning and then get charged for someone who doesn’t show that is out of your control and happens to anyone who plays this game. Golf is frustrating enough.

Nice course with a friendly staff. When we played there was a big highschool tournement and we ran into them at the second nine they played very slow 1hour for 2 holes.

The marshall gave us the opportunity to play the first nine again. As we did.

The course was in great shape from tee to green!

Pace if play wasn't a problem since our tee time was for 1pm in the afternoon.

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because there wasn't a beverage cart attendant out on the course, but that won't stop me from playing this course again.
