Staff are very friendly. The course is well groomed and the carts are very clean. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the carts- most courses the carts are dirty and windows are scratched.

One thing I would recommend is better signage. This was my first time on the course and it would have been nice to have signs with an arrow pointing to the direction of the next hole. This course has holes across the railroad tracks so there’s cris- crossing a few times to get to the holes. Thankyou

Old fashioned parkland course. Greens on the slow side and a few patchy spots, Overall worth playing, but not a trophy course.

Normally a fun round with challenging holes depending on the wind. However the pace of play was extremely slow due to multiple 4 somes, 5 somes and even 6 somes on several holes. Will try again on a different day other than Friday!

This course was rated a 4 according to GolfNow.

My friend lives in St. Pete and I in Lakewood Ranch. We were looking for a course to play that we hadn't played before but close enough for my friend to be home by 4PM so we chose this one based on the 4 star review. Was that a mistake. The tee boxes and greens were in good shape but if you didn't stay on the fairway, it was impossible to find your ball as the rough was a mess. If you enjoy hitting your ball on narrow fairways with folks hitting toward you from another hole you might enjoy it but you feel like you are constantly dodging a bullet and taking your life in your hands.

Oh, going up over the railroad tracks and hitting the ball alongside the road with cars and school buses passing by is another unbelievable situation.

There are no signs to let you know where the next hole is and you have to guess, is it right, left or straight. I guess they figure only the regulars play there. Why would anyone else want to. When I arrived onsite, I drove around looking for a bag drop - no bag drop and no one to assist in anyway. I saw a man with his trunk open changing his shoes and asked where the bag drop was, he pointed in back of a building and there was nothing there. A man sitting at a table near the front of the building pointed behind him when I asked where the pro shop was. The man at the pro shop who took the money acted like he was doing us a favor by taking our money. Friendly - what's that. Oh and BTW - the golf carts were relics . I haven't played a course this bad in a long time and I don't know how they ever got a 4 Star rating. It certainly doesn't deserve anything close.

No, we wouldn't recommend this golf course and NO we certainly won't be back. We'll stick to courses in Manatee and Sarasota.

Love this place. Friendly staff, affordable for regular play and always a nice day on the greens. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that its not a high-end course. And that is fine with us!
