First round in six months after injury, nice course to start rehab, not to long so no need to push to hard for length off the tee. Course gradually builds you up for a tough par 3 no.8

Very enjoyable round staff all friendly and helpful

We have played here several times before and have never experienced such poor customer service. Staff requires a customer service course. And the golf course has cut their amenities, but charge full price. We had to pay for a bucket of balls but we were instructed to tee off early and no water in the golf carts. So disappointed.

Loved everything about Grande Vista. Be careful when booking online what you choose. Thought I had booked 18 and only booked 9. This is a nine hole course and you play it twice. Also. Is very short. Play from the Green Tees and you have a chance to hit your driver a few times. Overall nice experience. I'll be back.

Course is a nine hole executive course. Conditions were excellent. However I thought that for the money I paid I was getting a 18 hole round and was surprized when I got there that I was only booked for 9 holes. Very disappointed.

I was really upset that I didn't check the course detail. It's a 9-hole course but GolfNow website said it's 18 holes! It's really misleading. I got there and found out that it's 9-hole but play twice for 18! What was I supposed to do - leave? I am really upset that GolfNow didn't indicate that it's a 9-hole course and was charged for $92 to play! Check the course detail in future reservation to make sure the course fit your play. Played couples from Michigan. Very nice people and it made a difference!

This course is excellent to test the lessons you've just received at the Marriott Golf Academy. I saw many couples playing here who were not registered for lessons so it appears to be popular with resort guests and locals which is usually a good sign. Ron Garl has designed some very difficult courses (Taboo comes to mind) and one should not take this one lightly. It is imperative that you hit your tee shot to a comfortable distance to the green to ensure a two putt par. Greens were slow, 8 on the stimpmeter but that favors the higher handicap player who need not fear a 10 foot come-backer.

We were staying at the Marriott, so decided to play here since it was convenient. Out of the five courses we played while in Orlando, this was probably in the best shape. They have a good irrigation system, so the grass was actually green vs. Celebration, Falcon's Fire etc. where we felt like were playing in straw the whole time. The course is short(all par 3's & 4's) so were were able to finish 18 holes in 2 1/2 hours. Staff was very friendly, and there is a good restaurant on site. Would recommend playing here.

The course was in excellent condition except for one or two greens covered in pine needles. The course layout and design made for a challenging but very fun round of golf. It is a LOT shorter than I expected (but that's what I get for not reading the yardages before booking). The longest hole is a 387 par 4 ninth hole and it's the longest by far on the course. But over all, great course, great staff, and if you need rentals, for $35 you get a very nice Taylormade M2 set up.
