This course was not able to keep my tee time and miss informed me when I called them ahead of time to make sure there was not going to be a jam up in the early morning. I had 4 tee time after sunset. When I arrived to the course the parking lot was packed. I checked into the clubhouse and was told there were 30+ people in front of me. (Doing the math, that's at minimum 8 groups and at 8 minute tee off increments I would have to wait over an hour.) I made my case to the staff and they try to tell me that the groups would play fast going out at 5 minutes increments. This would still miss my tee time and I could only imagine the jam up on par 3s. After some back and forth, they offered to have me tee off the back. I told them I would think about it, stepped outside and checked out the greens. After looking at them (they were not mowed and shaggy), I went back and declined.

I really like this course. their staff is great. the people that play out there are awesome. I have never had an issue. the course itself could be maintained a little better "the outlying areas not the course. you do need a hard hat because everything is so close together. other than that I really like the course.

Today was a hot summer's day in Seminole Florida but my wife and I, being the die hard golfers we are, decided to play anyway. We found a discount rate online and booked a tee time at The Tides for 3:17. The sky was clear and the sun hot until we finished the front side, then, out of no where a thunder storm hit that brought severe lightning with it. The golfers on the course evacuated to the club house and then, at 5:00 PM during the height of the storm, management closed the bar, club house and all the amenities as they do every day at that time. The difference was that they locked all of the paying golfers out of the club house directly into the rain and lightning as there is very little shelter save for the club house, and the staff wasn't a bit nice about it. To add insult to injury, I was told that they did not provide rain checks ... especially to golfers who play at a discounted rate they offer the public on their own web site! Really? No wonder this recreational service business is financially strapped! The manager should be terminated immediately and ownership should reevaluate its attitude toward paying customers. I will never spend another dime at The Tides because, firstly, the course is nothing to write home about, the staff is rude (especially the pro shop clerk/starter) and management is either so stupid they don't recognize the contingent liability of throwing golfers out in to a lightning show, or they simply don't care. In any case, I'd rather spend my hard earned dollars elsewhere.

When you can get a deal on golf now this course is definitely worth the money. Some of the staff is very pleasant couple of the guys not so much. I would recommend this course it is on the shorter end however its fun to play and forgiving if you mess up. Usually maintained pretty well. Right now the greens are punched and sanded.

I play the Tides a lot. It is in great shape and not so difficult to frustrate average hackers like me. The staff is always over the top friendly and accomodating. The price is always right and the starter makes sure everyone is not bunched up. We finished 18 in less than 3 hours.

Even at a 7% (!) discount, wasn't worth our time. Short, wide-open course, and although well maintained contrary to most reviews, it was a frantic round. Confusing layout and hole design. If you're a Rock Hudson fan, you'll love this course; balls flying everywhere! People crossing fairways from every direction because of the compact seemingly after-thought type layout. The starter/pro-shop (pleasant employees, we were treated well) could benefit from some instruction on sending groups off a little less expeditiously so as to alleviate the congestion and piggy back nature of the course. Not exactly a relaxing round of golf. As stated, for $30-ish, we won't be making a return trip. Wouldn't have complained for $15-20.

This course is great, especially for the cost. The fairways are pretty open, there is water on some holes but not an obstacle. The course is in good condition and is very beautiful.

This course gave a few different looks. Most of the holes let you hit the driver off the tee without too many worries. However there are a couple of holes that penalize you unless you can hit the driver straight as an arrow.

The staff was very nice and cordial to us and made us feel very welcome!

The course was in average shape. The greens had a few bad spots here and there. But they really ran true other than that.

All in all a nice value for the $$. With a little bit better conditioning, this course would be an amazing bargain.

Got to finally try new course that just came on golfnow a few months ago. Paid only $11 and was worth the value (with cart). Good length course (6329 from back tee's). Had enough of a challenge with water, tree's and some doglegs to make you think, but nothing the average player can't handle. Did catch a few slow groups, but they were quick to let the single's play through. The greens look like they had been aerated recently so the putts were pretty bumpy. Hopefully with the recent storms this will improve soon. For the price a great course to come out and have some fun.

The course was in the process of overseeding and some of the fairways were quite rough. The sand traps require attention. Overall the greens were in good shape and puts ran true and speed was good.<br/> Overall this course provides a variety of par four holes that are drivable however with the small landing area a miss could lead to a big score<br/> The course is also going through a Rezoning process and therefore the future could be questionable.
