I was trying out a new driver (10.5- usually 9.5) thinking I would get extra distance, which I did, but I ended up hitting approach shots from places I've never been before-- I'm thinking with some more adjustments, there will be overall improvement over time . . . oh, wait . . . you meant the golf course, right?

Staff here was exceptionally nice! Very friendly and welcoming. Course facilities are rather outdated and shows some signs of neglect. Greens were decent looking, but played faster than I have ever seen on a golf course. Like putting on concrete. Fairways were in pretty good condition though the first few holes do have weeds growing in the fairways. Cart paths need to be fixed and overall it was a pretty bumpy afternoon.

I was able to fly through the course playing as a single. No cart girl and bathrooms are pretty basic (one was a portapotty).

The one huge complaint I have about this course were the sandtraps. Honestly, I did not have fun playing today. Every single hole had 2 sandtraps hugging the green. Some holes there was literally less than 5 feet of grass approaching the green that you could play otherwise you were in the sand. I think I was in sand on half of the holes. Now, I am not a great golfer so I am sure above average golfers would have no problem getting onto the green, but for your average golfer you are going to be spending all of your time in the sand. Go look on google maps before playing to see what I am talking about with all the sand.

Anyways, even with the great golfnow rate, I wouldn't play here again. There are too many other courses in the area that don't make me feel cheated when I play and I really did feel cheated with how the sand played on this course.

I have played this course periodically as it is close to my home. There are some very challenging holes. 10-12 can eat you alive, if you are not accurate. The greens are exceptional and fast. The rest of the course conditions are so-so. I would suggest playing the course with lowered expectations and you'll have a good time. Nancy in the clubhouse makes it all worthwhile. A very nice lady.

I choose this course cause it was a hot deal and the reviews on the course were very positive on the condition of the course. The course was in terrible condition and they placed new sod on the greens so your ball would bounce as it rolled. Unless your a member at a private club or play resort courses, a lot of the courses in central florida conditions are sub par.

Don't let the clubhouse area scare you off. Looks like it needs a bit of an "update", but at least they put there $$ in the course. Great track, minus the 18th hole. Only Par 5 I have ever played that a bomb down the middle leaves you with a wedge-wedge to the hole, due to the set up of the trees. Poorly designed final hole. Great 1-17, however!

First time playing here. Greens were in really good condition and rolling nicely. Had to play from the tips because it is a little short. 6300 from tips. A lot of doglegs and shot making to be done. Tee boxes were a little weedy and some bald areas in the fairways but over all, a good day! Nice back nine change of scenery.

Played a round at Glen Abbey in DeBary FL with my daughter. The course is much improved since the last time I played there. The buildings have been spruced up, but more importantly the fairways & greens have received a greatly needed amount of attention. There used to be a noticeable difference in the condition of the front 9 over the back, but no more. The entire course is now near pristine. Kudos to the staff & crews!

And as for our round... we scored terribly but had a great time!!

A good variety of holes,there some short and easy holes and some holes that require good shot making.

Enjoyed the course,we played one day after a rain so the greens were a little slow,but most times they are quick but true to read. Enjoy the course and play at least once, sometimes twice a week there.

I have played this course several times and enjoyed it each time.

They are a great value for the money, the course is in good condition and the greens roll well. We had a lot of rain and the course drained very well.

With all the highly priced courses in the area, it is wonderful to have a nice course at a reasonable price. The front 9 is easier, the back 9 holes are more challenging also some very pretty holes.

I have given 5 stars as it is one of the best courses for the price in Seminole County.

This course is a great value for anyone looking to play a decent course for a great price. It's not the best maintained course you will find, but it's mostly in good shape. Most of the greens could use some work. There are weeds on most greens that make it hard to put with precision. Overall, a good course if you just want to get out and play.
