The course was in good shape for this time of the year. The pace was good until the 15th then it started to back up. I will be back again. It was an enjoyable outing.

Lots of hardpan on the course. Lots of roll on fairways, but you had better place the ball in a good position. There are overhanging limbs--too often--on the fairway. If you have even a slight slice/hook the rool-off will get you in deep-deep trouble. Greens were hard, too, and would not hold. Adjustment had to be made for shots into the green!

I played this course many times, I love the layout, it’s challenging although the maintenance was problem. Now it’s totally different, fairways and greens are amazing. I will be back soon and hope it’s condition will be kept perfectly always.

When I arrived there were no carts and was told drive your car up and unload your bag. Pace of play was very slow. The greens are very good and a challenge to read. And several doglegs were 90 degrees and not indicated on

the card. On the turn got a self serve hot dog but no one to take your money, just left money on the bar. The staff did not seem to care about customer service.

Condition of the course was good, except the greens were very slow. It was obvious the greens had just been cut, however they were quite "hairy".

Let’s get straight to the point - are you tired of flat land golfing in Florida? If so, this is your place. The course architect was able to provide the golfer with many different terrain options throughout the course! I truly fell in love with this course. Unfortunately I can’t give it a perfect rating across the board because their course isn’t well manicure from beginning to end - HOWEVER, look at the price, for the price of the greens fee — it truly is perfect. Staff, even more perfect...I have lived in Florida most of my life and never knew about this course...please spread the word and give it a try.

Ps...they have a great canned beer special!

It is hard but it is fair! Since Irma knocked down a few trees, it has opened the course up to some interesting chellenges, I always bring my visiting friends to play here simple because I know they will enjoy the course. I do not know of many courses that you can play after a hard rain and not play cart path only. this course drains perectly and seldom do you find a hole that is cart path only after a hard rain.

I was traveling from Orlando to Tampa on Business and looking for a course on my route. Luckily I found this Course. What a wonderful golf course and experience. Staff was very welcoming. The course was in great shape and a super layout, open but challenging.

I would highly recommend this course and would be willing to pay up to $45.00 to play here.

I will be back Saturday for my final round in Fla before returning home to NY.

EXCELLENT COURSE and VALUE!
