This was my first time playing the course as I was visiting from out of town. The condition of the course was better than I expected all the way through. The greens were in really great shape and rolled faster than what I was used to. I was caught a couple of times by the ball breaking in the opposite direction of what I expected. Overall, a nice course in good shape and worth what I paid. I'd like to play it again when if I get the chance.

We know it rains often in florida (especially summertime) so establishing better drainage for the course would do it well. I like the course layout and the tee boxes were well kept. The grounds keepers were distracting as they were all over the course, so a more appropriate time for them to do maintenance would help. Pace of play was good as other players allowed me to play through as I caught up with them. Staff is very nice and accomodating. I'd play again if it was dry.

My brother and I played this course after booking a HOT DEAL for $18 each. There were people on nearly every hole but we seemed to miss them all and pace of play was 2 hours. The greens were in very good shape for the very hot and dry weather we have had, The staff was friendly. We only saw the beverage cart once. It would have been nice to see her at least one more time. There is a restroom at what appear to be an old snack shack around the turn but it looks run down and there is no signage. We walked to the back of the shack and found the restrooms to be clean (Signage and a cold water fountain would be nice). The layout is fairly easy for novice golfers and offers a few challenges for the occasional player. I have played this course many times over the years, It has gone thru many changes. I haven't golfed here in a few years because it seemed the course was constantly under repairs and out of money. I am glad to say the course was very playable. It is an enjoyable round, and if you are lucky enough to book a hot deal like we did, the value is very hard to beat. There is a nice bar area that had the golf channel on and the bartender, Amy was great!

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.

Nice track....with nice pace of play, my morning round was enjoyable. Only concern is that sometimes the players behind are more focused on playing a sub 3 hour round; so they are always standing behind you expecting you to speed up even though a foursome is right in front of me! A sub 4 hour round is more than adequate for me. Maybe the speedsters need to take a practice swing or two.

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.
