Played this course many times since the opening in 2007. I wrote a very negative review in 2015 and a much better one in 2016. But today I was really surprised how much work they have done in the last two years! The course is really back to its best days; although some places it is a little too wet, possibly still due to the hurricane Irma. Tee boxes, fairways and bunkers are very good, except in some bunkers is too much sand… Greens are rather fast and true. And it is really clean out there.

Overall, if they can keep it in these conditions, it is really a course to be recommended. My only negative remark goes to the staff, which to me is rather not interested in what is going on – nobody at the bag drop, empty sand bottle on the cart, no service outside, partly almost empty water tanks, no restrooms on the back nine. But this is not the fault of the course, rather of the management… And watch out for the rates, a hot deal from Golfnow is very helpful!

We have played this course several times and never failed to enjoy it! We come to Orlando most years on holiday from Scotland- the home of golf - and always make sure we play this course and least once while here. The course was in great condition tho' the greens were fairly slow! The course is s a bit of a challenge for both our long and short game! A very enjoyable round indeed!

Providence is a community that has not fulfilled its potential...yet. The corse is open with interesting holes and some very challenging holes. The fairways are very inconsistent...some are very nice, others remind of a not well kept course in trouble. The greens were slow but will improve if the weather improves in the aftermath of Irma. The clubhouse is beautiful. But...the place was very empty...we had six players and played as a 6some in four hours and fifteen minutes and had a very enjoyable round. The few members who were around were not friendly and we felt like we were invading a ghost town. I hope the community catches on and the course thrives...it has very high potential.

I always enjoy playing here. Interesting holes, nice wide fairways so hard to lose a ball - always in good condition. A lot of houses have been built in the last year so there’s now less of it in the ‘countryside’ than it used to feel

This course is a beautiful combination of good golf and abondance of wildlife. Shared our round with gators (nothing new in Florida), wild turkey, birds of pray and a deer. And on top of that is the golf excellent. One of our favorites in the area. Will play again (and again, and again)

Whist staying on the Southern Dunes I decided to play another course in the area, and seeing Providence in Davenport, about a 20 minute drive I looked at their website and booked a round. Including club hire, it was about $40 all in, so fantastic value.

The hire clubs were nearly new Srixon clubs with a Cleveland wedge and putter (and made even better that the putter was the same one I use in the UK...). The buggy was more basic (no cooler or course map) but the course guide was perfect and my Garmin watch also worked perfectly for yardages.

The course was in pretty good condition for the time of the year, some holes were pretty wet given the recent storms and rainfall, but the greens, bunkers and pitching areas were all in vgc. One or two fairways were looking a little worn and the only area of the course that wasn't as good as the rest were the tee boxes but they were still ok. However this course was still very nice to look at and play.

Not the longest of courses but a real challenging course with lots of lakes, narrow fairways and well placed bunkers. I really enjoyed its layout and highly rate it. Plenty of dog legs and well placed greens, and I particularly enjoyed the par 3 holes. I will definitely return to play this course again. The staff in the pro shop and the ranger helping out with the buggy were really efficient and very friendly and helpful. Thanks fir a great first experience.

This is a good course to play in Central Florida for the money. The tee boxes are a work in progress, but this shouldn't stop you from have a nice time. The fairways are nice and most greens run true. There are a few spots being repaired. It appears this course is headed back to being one of the ones you'll want to play more than once. Most fairways are plenty wide, with a little water coming into play. The only downside is the person working the pro shop in the morning. He doesn't ever appear to be in a good mood. There was a sign in the prop shop saying cart path only for 5 holes, but after we finished we were told by an employee we could have driven on the fairway, the person in the prop shop just doesn't remove the sign. I don't know who was right, but I would ask to verify. Also, the restaurant always has excellent food.
