Timacuan is a nicely laid out course making for some picturesque backdrop to your round. The greens were in tremendous shape when we played, but the tee boxes and fairways were average, at best. The course was very challenging for our group, all golfers who typically hit scores in the high-90s. The course offers little in amenities, so for our first time on this course it made it difficult to navigate. GPS is only made available via cell phone, which was a pain when trying to gauge distance to any number of hazards or the greens. In the end, we felt we overpaid to play here.

Timacuan is not only the most picturesque course in Central Florida, but it is also one wonderful layout. If

you play from the tips you'd better be able to hit your drives 280 or so or you won't carry some water hazards. Even from the 6000 yard tees, the course is

a challenge. All in all, playing there was a greatl experience and I will do so again before heading

back up north.

Played here many times and you can therefore assume I enjoy the course; it's only a 10-15 minute drive from my house; and I enjoy the layout, etc. On this occasion, the greens were quite fast and true but fair. But the pace of play on the front 9 was awful. It was a Saturday and they had both Men's and Ladies Member Tournaments. To make a long story short, the ladies crossed over from the back nine 30 minutes early and we had to play a 2:45 hour front nine. No starter or ranger anywhere. I will say, of the many times we have played at the course, this was a first.

I have high expectation based on recommendations from my friend and the GN reviews. They have friendly staff at the pro shop ; no starter at first tee and we went out as a twosome. The greens were super fast and tough to putt. The scenery is very nice with narrow fairways. I personally do not like the layout thus don't think I will be back.

I had a 1:15 tee time and didn't tee off until 2:05. They had 3 tournaments that day. A members,boys and a girls tournament. I drove a hour and a half to get to this course and had to wait 50 minutes beyond my tee time. Couldn't find a starter any where. Bad day
