Since I moved to Florida ten months ago, I have played this course six times. It gets better each time I,ve played. Great layout. The superintendent and staff are doing an excellent job. Now that I live here it,s a course I will enjoy playing. I hope past bad reviewers will give it another chance.

Course condition is still poor overall considering the condition of some of the fairways. Lots of bare or weedy spots on the fairways. If your drive lands in a sandy spot it can take much of the roll off the ball. I like playing on this course so I hope it is able to improve course conditions.

The layout of the course is great, unfortunately, the course has seen better days. The fairways, for the most part, were in horrible condition.

Not too bad for what we paid; however, it is too bad the course can't be upgraded with care. I am sure it was once a very pretty course but is now in need of care.

This is a value-based golf course. The course is in playable condition, but there were many sections of the fairway that were either weedy or sometimes bare.

One of the worst, Possibly THE worst course Ive seen in Florida. terrible conditions and staff seems to be a group of old guys who think its their back yard. They need someone behind the counter with some social skills.

Favoritism shown to members who walked right onto the 1st tee in front of us even though we were at the tee box in our carts waiting to go. When we approached them, we were basically laughed at.

The course is honestly a cow pasture and weeds everywhere. greens are the worst we have ever seen. Just terrible and we see now why this course has such a poor reputation.

if you want to play with the livestock, this is the place...

Never go back.

This course has some nice elevation changes and a fairly challenging layout. Good bang for the buck. The greens are a bit bumpy and some have some sandy spots. Great value.

I love playing at Mount Dora because the course layout, but the course has been in rough shape. It was nice to see that the greens were in much better shape this time. I hope they keep making improvements.
