We usually love this course but the greens have been overseeded and do not play well at all. Given the current state of the greens and the cart path only rule, the price should have been heavily discounted. We will wait for another week before we go back. Otherwise we always enjoy this course - it's challenging but fair, great layout, lovely clubhouse.

Let's be honest we just started our winter over-seeding the week of November 20th and you do not cut greens until the grass has been established. We discounted our rates to reflect the grow-in conditions and notified via email, on our website and when calling in for reservations. This is regular annual maintenance of what most central Florida courses have to do to ensure high quality conditions in the winter season. Three weeks of bad for a full winter season of great.

I have played this course before and it was ok. This time around the course was the worst I've ever seen it. It was cart path only which we were not made away of in advance, and the young man who served us in the pro shop needs a attitude adjustment or perhaps just fired. The course was dry and with many bare spots in the fairways. The greens were despicable, super slow and mostly sand. If the price was discounted it may have helped but I won't be back. There are too many quality golf courses in the area to waste your money on this one.

After arriving at the course, it would have been nice BEFORE we paid our green fees for the person accepting our money to have told us that the greens were in terrible condition. Also, would have been nice to have been told BEFOREHAND that it would be cart path only because of overseeding of fairways and roughs.

I played Providence on Saturday which was my 3rd time. The 1st 2 times were great, green fees were superb and so were the conditions of the golf course. This was far from the case this time. We got to the course after paying a green fee larger than previous rounds and the greens were in the worst condition I have played on in my last year of golfing. All greens were burnt and covered in sand. Fairways were the burnt up in some areas and over watered in others. There was no course marshal which was definitely needed. There was a 2 ball that jumped in front of us on the first tee who held us up on every hole from 1-12 until they disappeared. They could not keep up with a 4 ball in front, ran through bunkers to get to their ball and not rake. The starter was non existent and groups were teeing of whenever they wanted.

Unfortunately this is far from my first 2 experiences and I would in fact recommend someone to play this course on the condition they call up to ask about conditions first. The wildlife on this course is amazing however I went to play a round of golf. I hope next time the course is back to where it used to be.

Greens are in the progress of being over seeded. A 69 cents gatoraid sells for $3.50 a shot is $7. No wonder why I saw many of the golfers bringing there own bottle water. We didn’t stay and have lunch and a beer, went elsewhere!

This course did not have any good views and we found it quite boring. The greens did not look good, however they did putt better than they looked. The fairways also were not great but maybe that is what to expect in Florida during November. The cost to play this course was good so the price was probable fair for the condition of the course.
