Just WOW ! This course has the worst greens in Florida. They have been punched and sanded at least 10 times since August of 2015. It is obvious that there is most likely a fungus that is killing the greens. Completely un puttable. They should be ashamed the prices they are charging for this miserable lil stretch of land. The staff is friendly so that is not a problem. DO NOT waste your dollars on this place. You have been warned !

Great price. Very good greens. Pro shop guy was rude. But the lady in the restaurant, was great. Very flat wide-open course, with several water hazards that made for a fun round. I didn't lose a single ball. Course was very windy, which just made the course even more fun/challenging.

Played this Sunday in the morning. Was expecting a slow round but our thressome moved pretty quickly most of the round. Tee boxes and fairways were ok, greens were sanded though. Overall a decent layout of holes, not the longest course by any means. They had water jugs on every hole which was a nice feature.

just went to this course to knock some rust off my game coming from up north and not having played for at least a month. it is a wide open course that is very walkable and good for seniors. it is a short course, if you can hit over 200 with your driver. I hit driver wedge on just about every par 4. the greens had been aerated and were in terrible shape, almost unplayable.

We were a foursome and very pleased with the condition of the course. We all had a different level of skill and yet the course was challenging enough for all of us. We will definitely play Crane Creek again.

I had a nice day of it. hazard areas were pretty easy to avoid. support your local courses and respect the course by repairing divots and avoid driving on surfaces where the cart will damage the turf.

I golf this course because it is the local course. The staff could be much more friendly and courteous and show that they honor customers. I would not drive in to specifically play this course due to this pervasive attitude. But I guess, that's kind of a defining feature of municipal courses.

The staff seems to be a bit more friendly from months back. This course is not too challenging but it gets you using all your clubs. It's got great length and usually very nice conditions. It's one of the better courses in Melbourne and if you're looking for a nice weekend play. The price is awesome for 9, 18 or the driving range. I would recommend this course if you're anywhere in the Palm Bay, Melbourne area
