First time playing this course and I found in a little difficult to follow the layout. Needs much more directional infirmation. Score card course layout is very poor. Greens OK but Tee box's need attention plus some fairway cutting could be improved. Nice price if thats what you are looking for.

Very poor markings to find the next hole ,you could be on the Panther and be on the Bobcat the next hole.They need to have more directions signs ! Cutting of grass was poor due to grass piles on fairways . Would I play here again, yes I would.

Course is in good condition. No green-side bunkers helps with the pace of play and lower scores. The young gent at check-in (FSU student) was very pleasant and helpful.

Several of the reviews are spot on. Got this course as a hot deal on golf now for about $15 per golfer so you can't beat the deal. Fairways are kept nice, but tee boxes could use some work. Guy in the office is not very welcoming, but the starter was awesome and very polite. Gator course has a lot of dog legs which are difficult but fun.

Overall the course is decent. Its not a TPC nor does it charge like it. Really pretty cheap and its worth what you pay. I gave the staff one star overall because of one person in the pro shop. He's generally short tempered and rude. The others in the pro shop are friendly and helpful and the restaurant staff is exceptional.

They have 3 nine hole courses. We played the Gator then the starter told us there was a tournament in progress ahead and play would be slow on the Panther. We could play the Panther if we like, so we did. Good friendly advice.

The course is challenging yet forgiving. Some holes you will get in trouble if you use the driver off the box. The Panther greens seemed a little slower but still in good shape. The whole course was well kept, no dead.grass or bare spots anywhere that I saw.

Bobby Coppabianco is a people person guy. Very amicable and very fair.

Our church held our Golf Outing here for the first time. My congregation loved it, and wanted to play here again.

The layout was pretty decent. Some interesting holes. Greens ran fairly well and were in pretty good shape. The fairways were absolute concrete and almost like hitting off dirt. Very difficult when in the middle of the fairway and have terrible lies. With proper maintenance, could be a nice little course

We paid $76.00 (2 players) for this course and drove a little ways to play it. This might be one of the worst layouts I have ever played in 50+ years of golf. It is totally uninspired. Must have be designed by an amateur architect. The condition was pitiful. Then add to it that it is adjacent to the community shooting range. There were loud shotguns going off constantly. It was literally next to the 18th fairway. Absolutely crazy. Do not play this course. A waste of money.

The Gator course was very wet stands to reason it poured the nite before. You better stay on fairway cause other than that it is nothing but tree roots & bare spots.
