Being a visitor from England over the last twenty years, I have played several courses in the Ocala area and most had course conditions not much better than our English winter conditions so, I tried Candler Hills for the first time, for 3 rounds, on this visit. Candler Hills fairways always allowed one to hit the back of the ball and the greens were as big and sometimes as fast as we see on TV for Augusta. The 88 bunkers had good sand and no stones like I am used to. The online booking made it a reasonable price and very good value compared to other courses in the area.

After reading the reviews on this course we decided to play. We were greeted at the unload area and for the rest of the day everyone was very friendly. The course was in excellent condition with both the fairways and greens lush and true.

For the money this should definitely be one of your choices in Ocala for golf.

I got out early on holiday morning. So was pretty much the first tee time. I was a single no one around me the whole day. Some challenging holes. Beautiful course will definitely play again. Not sure how pace of play would be during peek hrs but I'd definitely play again.

Played from the blues, even though I prefer seniors ,but other player wanted company at those tees. The course was challenging with very windy conditions. The layout is wonderful. Greens were in need of a little water, but very fair. Shot around 90 and had a fun day.

Course was in very nice shape......Greens a tad on the slow side but very plush......If you decide to eat sit at the bar.....seems like no one works as a team. At the Bar the bartender is at least there.......Pro shop First Rate.......and if you need a lesson then Denise Mullen on Staff......OMG she's the best.........

Played this course for the first time with my son. Staff are very friendly. Pace of play was exceptional. Tee time was 2:00 and finished in just over 3 hours. Greens were sandy but were rolling relatively true. Big variety on tee boxes. You can make it very long or very manageable based on boxes. We played the blue and found it to be very manageable. Done is a 1 handicap and I am a 9.

Will definitely play this course again. Layout offered up some challenges on tee shots with wide open fairways on others.

I had an app on my phone to manage the layout. Not knowing the course or using a gps would make some shots tricky.
