Love this course. Great layout that is firm but fair. Excellent greens, best of anywhere in town.

3 stars because of the ranger. I appreciate when courses have a ranger to keep pace of play going smoothly. But a bad ranger can ruin a round and this one did. He pulls up and asks our group (as we are sitting waiting for the group in front to move so we can to hit), "how long do you think a round of golf should take?"

We answer four hours. He says our group is twenty minutes behind. We point to the group in front of us. He says speed it up and pulls off, rather than apologize.

Terrible approach, miserable way to handle slow play and he should be in a different position at the course.

Now how many reviews he is mentioned in.

I'm the one who convinced our tour to book here instead of Bardmoor and this dashed an otherwise unanimous feeling that we made the right choice.

We will be back, but if the same happens that would be the end.

You'll want to come back to play this course again. In the rainy season of summer, the course was in great shape. Greens were firm and true and the people here are nice and helpful. I went as a single and got matched with some very nice locals. Try this one and you'll want to play it again and again.

Words cannot justify the beauty and condition of this course.Both nines wind through a residential neighborhood right on Long Bayou with the front nine right on the edge making this the more distinctive of the 2 nines.Water comes into play 13 of the holes making tee shots a priority.Hole #7 is the highlight of the course a par 3 with a shot over water guarded in the front by a bunker.Not an overly long course but wind and damp conditions can make it play longer.There are a couple of longer par 4's on the back.Pro shop was well stocked and even though i did not go in restaurant I think it probably run professionally.The only reason I didn't give this a 5 star in all was the sourpuss in the pro shop who couldn't remember me when I made the turn 1.5 hrs.after checking in,maybe the he should take lessons from the cart guy who was great.If I lived in Pinellas county this would be my home course and this is worth the drive from anywhere in central Florida.

Other than the fairways I have nothing bad to say (They were not the bad, would have gave this a 4.5 rating). Played as a single starting out, due to Monday morning men's league, I joined up with a twosome and another single and really enjoyed the round. Tee box perfect, greens awesome, but fairways need a little work. I like to play golf by the rules (HCP 4), but had to play the ball up in the fairways. The greens other than people not fixing ball-marks were perfect. Sound traps were nice and soft, be careful of those lips!! Next trip down I will def play again and hope I run into the members I joined for a nice morning of golf!!!!

We were in town on vacation and wanted to play around of golf so we started looking around to see what we could find, we talked to some locals who told us they couldn't buy any rain for months so I was worried the courses would be in bad shape. Boy was we wrong Seminole lakes was in awesome shape the greens are some of the best I have ever played on, they rolled as smooth as glass and the grass was like smooth carpet, the fairways was great and the tee boxes, even the woods was clean.. at the turn they was very accommodating to my father in law who is diabetic by letting us do lunch at the turn from there amazing chef, when we come back we will for sure book around here again.. Thank you for a great experience..

Overall this was a good value. The greens were in really nice shape and they have some really challenging Par 3s with lots of water to carry. The main knock i give it would be how close and how many houses are just off the edges of the rough. You feel a little smothered but hit it straight and you'll be fine
