Course needs work! Grass needs mowing, most greens hsd bare spots and no fringe. Nice layout. Excellent cart paths. Management needs to put some money into the greens. I would play more often if the course was improved.

To my surprise the course has greatly improved - from tee box to green. A lot of work has been done and it looks like the course will get even better. Really enjoyed my round today on this nice course. I'll be back.

I have been playing this course for years and have seen it at it's worse. The current management has put a lot of time and effort into making this course a hidden gem. The fairways are in the best shape they have been in although they have a ways to go. The greens are getting better and overall it is worth more than the fee. 3 of the 4 Par 3's are the most challenging you will find. Worth the drive from Orlando

The is one the first course I ever played, my first time was in 1998, since then I saw different administrations but the one really are thinking seriously on the improvement of this nice golf course, my congratulations to the very friendly staffs, New golf cars, plus UBS port for charges phone and GPS gages . Only couples greens need more time to be in great condition, nice improvement on all fairways, but need some work on 18 hole.

Very pictures, watch out for water-skiers. Could be a goldmine if only maintained. Greens Poor condition! Fairways no distinction from rough. You could loose your ball two feet off the green. Spent to much time looking for ball in fairway or rough! No signs. Could not find back nine holes! Had to ask how to get there.Too bad for condition of course. This course has great potential if someone put some money into it Sorry truth hurts!!!!!!!!

The new management here has done an outstanding job, the course is in the best shape I have ever seen and only getting better. The layout is unique, where else can you find waterski lakes as water hazards? The staff here is second to none, I always enjoy our time here from walking into the proshop and finishing 18. They also do a Wednesday evening scramble so grab your buddy's and come out!

If they couod control the weeds wow this little place would be fantastic. The greens rolled ok but are infested with weeds. Fairways are basically weeds mowed down. Rough is treacherous with weeds and thick due to rain and not being able to cut. We had a great time and everyone there were super nice. Saw a few hang gliders which was cool too.

I have been playing Swiss Fairways off and on for years and have seen it go from a "pasture" course to now being in good condition. It still has a ways to go but it is a great value for $20. Two of the Par 3's are very challenging you'll be hard pressed to get home in 2 on any of the par 5's. Plus, they include Yuengling in the 6 for the price of 5 beer special so how can you go wrong!!
