Upon arriving at the pro shop, we weren't allowed to leave our bags in the labeled bag drop area, told to go park our car instead. When confirming our tee time in the pro shop the lady at the desk was extremely rude. At one point she said "if you don't like it you can go back where you came from". We teed off, by the time we got to the second hole our golf cart died. When trying to call the clubhouse, it just kept going to voicemail. The conditions of the fairways were sub par, although the greens were reasonable. However the overall layout of the course was redundant, 3 of the par 3's were so similar we thought we had gone to the wrong hole. The one saving grace was the work effort and customer service of the cart lady.

I played this course 3 times, mainly due to location and price. Twice it was very very slow play. In fact the last round I gave up at the 12th hole.

My biggest problem with this course is that some fairways are very narrow and have water all along one side and condos all along the other side. On holes 10 and 11 if you miss the narrow fairway on the first or second shots say goodbye to your ball. Hole number 8 is just stupid. There is a 20 yard diameter landing space at 250 yds, otherwise you have to play max 175 yds off the tee to find a landing spot. On a par 5!!!! Unless you can hit a driver dead straight there is no shot.

People that play here do not respect golf rule, they jump in front of you without asking. They are a lot balls from the same spot, taking too long too finish the hole.

This course is in awful condition and the layout is poor. One other major irritant is how complicated it has been to find the actual entrance of the course once we were through the Century Village front gate. We almost did't make it in time for our tee off because of all the turning in circle we did without any kind of indications to help us. According to the lady in the pro-shop, the City forbids signs for directions.

This is brutal...

This was a fun course to play. The fairways had many mounds and knolls adding to the character of the course. The greens were in very good condition but a bit slow. I highly recommend this course.

They advertise GPS, but they removed all of them from the carts.

No markers on coarse any where.

Too many players holding up play, because they don't have markers.

The started wouldn't let me play because the course has a rule that no more than 2 carts are allowed in a foursome. I drove 45 minutes and had 10:52 tee time and because my wife was with me couldn't join the threesome. He wanted me to wait until12;17. I refused and said "why don't you split us up and play as 2 twosomes." He would not! He was nasty and said he hates golf! The only solution was a refund. This was the first time that I ever experienced this and that they couldn't figure out something to accommodate me especially after driving so far.

The course is in good shape during peak season, the layout is fun. Short course but undulated fairways make it interesting and greens are relatively small.

As a 9 handicap golfer, it is not a well manicured course, very short as well.

Wouldn't go back.

The course condition was good but fairway terrain is very irregular; can't drive a golf cart on it without practically hitting your head on the roof! Cart paths weren't much better. Course is poorly marked: no marquees or yardage markers and no GPS on golf carts, which their website claims. For the golfnow.com Hot Deal price of $25, it's decent but I wouldn't pay much more than that.

I found the layout to be interesting and challenging. Narrow fairways, plenty of war, bunkers around the green. While a short course, it played longer, as the fairways were quite narrow.

Most of the greens are small, so you need short club into the greens.

Unfortunately, tee boxes and greens were in poor repair. The pace of play was awful, nearly 5 hours. Had to wait on every hole. The Club allowed a very large group to go out ahead of us 16-20 people. While they went off in groups of 4, they were basically all the same group which had taken over all the early tee time and were in no hurry.
