By far the worst for experience we have had in years. Ranger politely asked us to speed up play once, then, even though the was no place to go and we were right on the heels of the group in front of us, very condescendingly and rudely pushed us to speed up play again. We complained to the golf shop manager at the end of our round but he just smirked at us. WOULD NEVER PLAY THIS COURSE AGAIN. Save yourselves a headache and play Grand Cypress or Stonegate. Food is great at both these locations too! Providence is for people who liked to be kicked around a golf course NOT for those who want to actually ENJOY the golf.

My brothers and I golf all over the country and I live in Charleston SC where I play. All of us have golfed for 30 plus years. We scheduled a week in Florida and had great rounds at Grand Cypress and Stonegate. We were playing our last 18 at Providence, never again, us and the other golfers in front of us were harassed three times very rudely to speed up play, one time even being scolded like small children for not listening. We played 18 in four hours and 20 minutes. If you like being herded around like cattle this is your course.

First of all, I mistakenly made the tee time for the wrong date. I'm in line for the magic carpet at Magic Kingdom with my family and get an email that my CC was charged for the no-show. I called GolfNow and they referred me to the course. Josh responded and was incredibly helpful. He offered to get me on the course the following day with my foursome despite not having to.

As I showed up, Josh and the rest of the player services staff was extremely helpful and courteous. A great starter gave us the lay of the land.

The weather was cold, even for us northerners. However, the course played EXTREMELY well for our foursome. We all played the whites. Two of us were playing our first rounds of the year. Our handicaps ranged from 4.4 to XX.X!!! We all found our share of trouble on the course, but it was a very FAIR course. Hit good shots and you're rewarded. Hit a bad one - take your medicine and play on.

The conditions were flawless. Greens were not lightening fast, but they were definitely quick. They rolled extremely true. Fairways and rough were consistent and lush. Fairways had good roll despite a ton of rain early in the week!

Took in a pitcher of Yuengling in the bar after the round and it was fairly priced, with frosty mugs and a friendly staff. Clubhouse stocked well. The range was a little less than I expected, but was definitely serviceable.

All in all, I would DEFINITELY come back. A good value for the money, but GREAT staff and service!!!!

The cart staff and starter are great.

The design is excellent.

Course condition was good. Previous players have found it inconvenient to fix their ball marks on the green and repair their strip mining of the fairways.

I was very happy with the course and the condition, I was in the area for business and had some extra time to unwind, I was a single and the pro shop did a nice job of paring me with a couple guys that had course knowledge and we had a great time on a great course.

4 sets tees, plenty of water and green rolled very nice.

Good layout with houses on the front nine, many under construction. Back nine much nicer as there are no houses although it looks like this is now starting to change. Greens and tees in good order as were most of the fairways. Pace of play was very slow and some people left the course after eleven holes as there were four groups waiting on the par three, our playing partners said it was always the same as they sent four balls out every eight mins. Overall a good course worth the visit but don't go if you have a dinner reservation to make.

We teed off early (7:10am) so pace of play was fantastic (3:45) for our foursome. Course conditions were superb, greens were smooth. This was our 4th course played this week at it was the best of the 4. We enjoyed the layout and paid attention to the hole pictures on the scorecard as some tee shots require you to cut off some corners. Definitely recommend this course to play.

We have been coming to this course for 5 years now and the course is in the best shape ever. Tee to green the course is in great shape. The greens are plush and quick. The fairways are full and the rough is fair. The staff has been great. Jerry and Josh have been very pleasant to deal with. Thanks Providence we will continue to play here.
