The course has a flat, nice, uncomplicated layout, but always gets me. Wind makes a difference on how it plays. Greens have good speed and some contours. Generally the greens are in better shape than the course. Walking is allowed after 11 AM or 12 PM on winter season. Decent conditions for a muni. The course was dryer than usual.

The pace of play was discussing. I am not sure if I’ll come back. It was frustrating. How about a ranger to keep it moving?

I was lucky that the starter let me go out on my own, walking, ahead of a 5-some that was teeing off –which should not be allowed-. I had a slow father-son two-some in front. A college aged twosome cached up to me on the second tee. They were bad, slow, and careless for the pace of play. Luckily they were playing only the front. By the 6th out of nowhere a 4-some jumped in front of us from the 2nd. We already had a whole hole opening in front, and with my slow companions, I could not argue with them. Slower now.

On the 10th I caught up to the 4-some and they let me play through, as they were waiting for a Father/wife/Adult daughter three-some that showed out of nowhere. I caught up on the 11th and they invited me to join them. With the illusion of playing through and speed it up, I hesitated, but the noticed that they were waiting for the father-son twosome, who was also waiting. Nowhere to go, so I joined them. It was actually enjoyable after that, but always waiting.

They told me that they were playing the front and had a turtle paced, walking foursome in front of them, so they went to the 10th.

The difference between the fairways and the rough were not to noticeable (less than average)and to get to the 18th green was quite surprising due to the fact that it was a hole in the fairway 50 yards from the green and there was no notices, written or verbal. so a moderate day turned into ...what is this!!!!!!! The green were very slow for the most part even though it was warm and sunny at mid day to start.

Nice little city course in Melbourne. Good mix of straight away and doglegs to please every type of player. Conditions were fair greens were good alot if mud on the fairways. Starter was nice but no rangers on course two groups formed a sixsome a couple groups up and it slowed things down. Value wise you can't be $20 on a weekend morning.

Played 18 in 2 and 1/2 hours. This course has a lot of potential. It can play long or short on your choosing. A little tight on some holes. Makes you play. City has made some improvements to course such as improving the cart storage facility, extending the cart path, installation of traffic safety signs, and drinking water on every other hole. Greens were slow but in very good shape. Fairways needs work. Tee boxes were good but could be better. Very nice people. Good hot dogs, fries and sandwiches.

The course itself is in better shape than it's been in a long time but frankly that is not saying a lot. My main issue is VALUE. For the amount of money they want on a weekday or weekend morning there are several courses in the area that are less expensive and in much better condition.<br/> It is a shame that management and the city are not smart enough to realize that they can't just see what other courses are charging and set the fees accordingly. They need to smarten up and think about VALUE. The city complains about low rounds the answer is simple this is a $20 to $25 course not $38 (soon to go up from there).

The course is laid out nicely and the staff was friendly and helpful. The fairways were ok but the greens were slow and patchy. Also needs better drainage. A lot of wet areas.

Mallards Landing was somewhat challenging but a really nice course to hone your skills. I enjoyed playing with 2 local guys who were very informative and was eager to give me the layout and landing safe zones of the course. Aside from being a little soggy from all the rain, it was still quiet an experience, I do intend to play it again over the next 2 weeks i'm here.

Like the course fairly level and challenging was in excellent shape tee to greens, but that was after I took 4 lessons with Mike Flynn, the stack & tilt crew sent me to him not only did he fix my swing he added monster yards,.I'm 55 and in good shape I was hitting my 5 iron 170 now I'm up to 205, my 7 iron was at 150 it's now at 170, my driver went from 230 to 260 with a nice draw. Also my last lesson we worked on chipping I cannot believe how easy he made it for me I am grouping chips like never before. Can't wait for my putting lesson.

The course has been improved a lot from the pass. It has drinking water every 3 holes through out the course and the green is must better compare to the past. It's green condition is average slow but put able. The fairway is ok and wide open so you can use driver or irons without worry OB.

Over the past several months, this Course has steadily gone down hill, where it's to the point of not even being a good deal during their "Hot Times".

With so many other quality Courses in S. Brevard County, Mallards Landing is no longer a wise choice. Save your money on this one!
