Very surprised to see the course in poor shape with overgrown grass on the tea boxes there’s like teen off from the rough when asked about this in the pro shop was just told we just over seeded doesn’t feel like a great value in the prices gone up since the off-season however the course is in worse shape usually enjoy playing this course however I will not be back until I hear that the conditions have improved

This is a great little course for the money. Very friendly staff, excellent, top notch practice facilities. Everything was in great shape from tee to green. Everyone needs to play a short course once and a while. This course is a premium executive course that plays in many ways like a championship course. I had just come off 5 rounds in 8 days so this was a nice change of pace, especially for tightening up the short game. I played with my wife and together we truly enjoyed playing just 9 holes on such a hot day. We played from various tees as they suit our eye. If it looked too short, we played back, if too long, we played up. We didn't even bother to keep score but rather enjoyed hitting the ball and making a few nice shots. If you're after a quick value packed round, this is a gem.

First time playing Grande Vista at Marriott Vacation Club.

It’s a great course layout and well maintained. The course was very wet due to rain previous night. Drainage maybe an issue.

Restaurant service was lacking

Fantastic practice facilities. Can really refine your game on the range, putting green, and multiple short game areas. The course is a blast. Very easy and no par fives, but it is a ton of fun. My buddies and I play here regularly now. The course was in great shape: very well maintained, true greens. Really can hit a lot of interesting shots if you mix up your strategy and play 9 irons off the tee on some par 4s. The ultimate practice course/facility.

I've been to this course 4-5 occasions. Love it. Not the most challenging course but that is great for beginners like myself. 7, 8, and 9 are tough holes.

The course is always in great shape!

The Marriott Golf Academy is held here so the practice facilities are grand and immaculate.

It's 9 holes but if the course is not crowded they always allow you to continue play. Your significant other can stay inside and enjoy the restaurant and bar, both having a scenic view of the entire practice facility.

If this was an 18 hole course you would certainly pay $40-50/round easily.

Get there early and enjoy yourself.
