Took advantage of a hot deal to play this course. Very pleasant greeting by staff and starter. We found the course in excellent shape and greens were fast but fair. Track is nicely laid out and some very nice holes.

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!

Nice day for golf however we were pressured into hurrying our game along in the front 9 because they had a tournament starting. We were at the mercy of the two groups in front of us that we're playing painfully slow. They were using the course as a time to teach someone who obviously never played how to play. This put a lot of pressure on us. What was the answer? An awesome ranger that was diligent in having them move along.

Backed up, no marshall moving folks along. The starter and his assistants stand above the first tee yelling and running a blower to clean carts. Great experience while you are trying to tee off. No beverage cart service. Not having a Marshall meant we played the front nine in 2.5 hours. Very frustrating playing a round in five hours. Clubhouse and restrooms need some TLC. They were busy and charging a reasonable amount, maybe put some $$$'s back into the place and get a marshall and beverage cart running.

This course use to be one of the better courses in the area. Past few times I have played. It has gone a little down hill. The greens were dead or missing grass on them. The sand bunkers were all full of water. In short they need to get it together for me to play there again.

Played this course back to back weekends because it is a decent course for the money and my home course had private events going on. First round was brutal. There were 7 groups waiting to tee off at my tee time and they weren't letting people start on 10 (Why not?). Whatever, it happens every now and then. I was thinking, there is no way they would have 7 groups waiting to tee off again at the same time like the week before so I went back. But boy was I wrong. Sat at the first tee box for 30 some minutes after supposed tee time before we actually took off. 2 of the slowest rounds I've ever played. Tee times were 7:50 something and 8:0 something. I know you want to make money but spread your tee times out more than 5 minutes apart. Would love to play it again but I will not because the pace and starts are ridiculous.

A fun course with good variety. Not extremely long, but not flat like most area courses. Has several doglegs and a few "blind" tee shots. Played as a threesome, two groups let us play through and we finished 18 in just a little over 3 hours! Front nine greens were wet and VERY slow, back nine was a bit drier but still fairly slow greens. Very friendly staff.

I showed up on-time and was advised only the front 9 was open due to a large group going out. Isn't that the point of having t-times? Attendant wasn't very friendly and said it would be $3 less if I wanted to play the front 9 once instead. Unapologetic and poor service from the pro shop. Then tried to overcharge me and even after showing e-reciept from GolfNow still wouldn't/couldn't figure out how to honor the original price. I just ate the difference as I didn't want to argue any longer. Stopped at the restaurant/bar after the 1st nine and once again was met with sub-par service and quality of food. Greens and fairways were in decent shape with a couple exceptions.

The course was in great shape except the tee box on number 9. Large rut in the middle of the tee box. Mentioned it to the starter when we made the turn. Other than the tee box issues the courses was in great shape. The staff was very friendly, the starter offered to run me back to my car in the parking lot, I walked it was not far.

I arrived early tee time was 11 AM . I dropped of by clubs and parked by car. By the time I put my shoes on the starter had by bags in the cart and brought the cart to me. The course was dry there has not been much rain. The greens were in good shape but hard. You could tell they were working on the course by the chemicals on the fairways and greens. I will go back again

The course is dry and you will find lots of hard spots and dead trees that need attention but for the price it was ok. Greens were slow as they get a lot of old players it is understood.
