Is a nice place to play for less than 30$ the tee time, cheap beers, nice place to have fun hitting some balls, the average condition of the course is not the best!!! But it worth what you are paying for it

This course has one of the best layouts you'd want to play. Plenty of bunkers and every hole 1-18 is a challenge! The course has come a long way under new ownership and maintenance! 4 months ago this course was almost unplayable but you can clearly see the changes that are happening and the care they are starting to put into this Golf Course! It's so nice to see that they are trying to bring this course back to what could be one of the best courses around! If you've played this course in the past meaning 4 months ago or longer the difference today is night and day! With what is happening there now this course I believe will be always a must play in the future! Good work, keep it up!

Course is payed out fine but in poor condition. Love watching the water skiers practice and get a kick out of signs that tell us to let the boat pass before teeing off. Greens were fair to poor. Hard to find grass to hit your ball off of in fairways. Maybe a good course to play in the fall?

Gary, thank you for the review. We are sorry to hear that our course conditions were poor. This is certainly not the standard we are trying to set for our golfers. We are however glad to hear that the pace of play was good. Thank you for playing and we hope to see you in the fall.

This course has been through tough times, the new owners are very serviceable and commited to bringing it back to playable condition, great value for the money, the tee time included steaks, they were delicious and their service top notch.

Water skiers are definitely a plus, once this courses grass is back to where it needs to be, this will be my go to course in The Orlando area.

Wow what a change in one year. The course is getting better each time I play it and now on weekends for $30 you get golf/cart and an 8oz steak for lunch with a drink of your choice. John the new manager is working his butt off to serve a good product to golfers and his volunteer staffing is awesome. I have made 4 new friends amung them and hope to see them and play a round with them again next winter.

Many Thanks,

New management has done a good job to upgrade a wonderful Florida golf course. Some greens still need a little work but the fairways were in good shape. Nice upgrade to cart paths and restroom facilities on the course.
