Came in from Maryland and was really looking forward to this course and was not disappointed. As soon as we walked in everyone was extremely friendly. The guy working the desk was awesome!!! He got us in and out, had a great attitude and did a good job of directing us where to go, since it was 3 9 hole courses. We played marlin and dolphin. Started on marlin and starter was just as nice as guy in the pro shop. It was saturday morning and the started said no rush to get out cause at that time no one behind us. My mom hit the range while i putted. Range was good and so was the putting green. While we were warming up a twosome walk on beat us to the box. As we finished warming up they did not tee off yet. Me and mom were in no rush cause we knew no one was gonna be behind us but the walk on twosome and the starter basically said for us to go ahead of them, which doesnt happen at all in the DC Metro area. Marlin was great. Tee boxes in great shape. Greens rolled well even though they had been punched recently. Rough was thick but nicely cut. It looks low but the ball sets down in it so either find a landmark of where you land or just be good and stay out the rough. Bring some extra balls cause there is a lot of water. Fairways were in great shape. No official comment on bunkers cause it poured rain the night before so the bunkers were wet but the course drained really well. Only played 5 on dolphin cause had to get back for family outing. Dolphin seemed just as nice as marlin but the holes were a little shorter distance wise. Another shot out to the staff cause maybe after hole 3 or 4 on dolphin the next hole is on the other side of the club house. Starter told me where to go at begining of round but it was really hot out and by that time i forgot. Asked an employee where the next hole was and he didnt tell me where to go he stopped what he was doing and drove us around to the tee box. Service was excellent!!! I recommend this course.

It's a nice layout but wish it was in better shape. Spotty fairways and greens. A lot of water but the wide fairways help you keep the ball dry. Having 27 holes makes it an excellent option. Very friendly staff. Would only play if the price is right. Very windy which makes you have to hit extra club often. Only 25 minutes away from the airport.

Played here yesterday with a couple of buddies. We're all about bogey golfers, so we're not expecting ideal conditions on the course, but this was something else. Lets start with the tee boxes - I don't think there was a single tee box on the course that was level. In addition, none of the boxed has actual grass growing, so you had to hit out of dirt on the par 3's. The greens were recently aerated, which I'm fine with. However, I'm not ok with the fact that nobody told us the greens were aerated, and we would not have played the course knowing that. The rest of the course was in decent shape, except for the lack of distance markers. Overall, if you pay anything more than $30 to play 18 (we paid $55), you're getting jipped.

Challenging setup, but both course marlin and dolphin recently had the greens aerated. It would have been nice to have been notified prior to the round about this. The greens were very frustrating to putt on all day. It's a shame really, they held nicely and the rest of the course was in good shape.

Both the Marlin and Dolphin were both very nice courses. Most of the holes were surrounded by sand traps that were in great condition. I signed up as a single but joined up and played as a two-some. There was a couple ahead of us that let us play through. We completed 18 holes in 3 hours.

The putting greens were well maintained and fairly consistent.

When I signed I signed in the pro shop made no attempt to pair me up. Getting Golf carts was not straight forward. I had to find working to show me where to go. Very little customer service.

However, really enjoyed the course and would recommend to others.

The course was quite empty so I moved along very well at just over 3 hours. Conditions were very acceptable with greens smooth and reasonably fast.

Fair amount of water and every green well guarded with traps.

Great test for the average golfer

I was really surprised of the beauty of this course - we played front 9 Marlin and back 9 Dolphin.

And on a Thursday afternoon there were maybe 20 golfers on courses - perfect day!

Lots of water, nice fairways, plenty of bunkers ..if anything the green were damaged of players not repairing their marks - which should be a disqualifying element in golf, so annoying!

best course I have played so far in South Florida!

I played this course a year ago, and it has really deteriorated. The greens are in horrible shape with crab grass weeds growing all over the place. It's a shame since the course has such a great layout to keep it in such bad conditions. Its sister courses dolphin and marlin are in better shape but if they don't take care of their greens they'll be in as bad condition as Barracuda and soon. The pluses: super friendly staff, good layout, great pace of play, and great value for the low price. If you're gonna play here, play dolphin and marlin, avoid barracuda.
