Played this course last summer in the heat and it was in pretty good shape. Yesterday was just fantastic. I was a single and got paired up with a couple from Canada. We had a great time. I plan on going back to this course more often, even though is is a bit of a drive for me.

Staff were great and the cart boy even gave some free recovery balls to use!

Greeted at car and starter excellent. Got out a little early and sub 4 hr round. Doesn't get much better. Greens were very good and smooth, not too fast, and enjoyed the layout. Good mix of holes. A little short from the white tees but it was cool and windy so weather made up for it a litttle. Some Fairway bunkers a little rough withe heavy/muddy sand but nothe supposed to be there anyway. Will definitely play there again....very soon.

This course has some really nice conditions, fairways, tee boxes and greens were in good shape. Towards the end of the day around 5PM as the Florida sun goes down, conditions are superb. The fairways thicken up slightly and you get nice lies. Greens were very fair. Because of the slow pace on the back 9 I played with 2 younger guys that were insanely good golfers. One of the guys, Justin was consistantly hitting his drives 290-300 yards. He was paring and a few birdies. We played off the pro tees and the course was particularly long for me but it was fun playing with such good players. I didn't want to embarrass myself so I actually hit more good shots than normal but couldn't score well because of the length.

Golfed there on a Sunday. It was a full golf course yet the pace was good. A little over 4 hrs. Course was in nice condition. Good greens. Nice fairways. The only negative was the greeting from the guy that checks you in. He shouldn't be there. The rest of the staff were great. Very windy day but we had a great time.

The staff was friendly and very helpful. As soon as we parked and got out of our car a cart was brought to us. The course was difficult and very challenging. I played from the blue tees and shot a 87. I loved this course.

Friendly staff, variety of holes with few quirky ones, decent condition, four hour pace both rounds, and very reasonable rates. To me, that's golf and all I need. Played only one other Florida course, which was scruffy and FAR too narrow. This one's much better.

I haven't played here in a while because the course had not been kept up well. Overall the course was in much improved and good condition. The greens were consistent and good, although a bit slow, estimate only 7 on a stimpmeter. They have shrunk the already small greens even smaller. I am sure to reduce maintenance costs. Very noticeable on 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, & 17, so be accurate with the approach shots. Don't mind a small green on some of the very short par 4's, like 5 & 13, but on on par 3's where I had to hit 5 irons the greens are no more than 20 ft. Wide. A bit unfair if you ask me. Fairways were excellent, as well as the bunkers. Nice verity of holes, not too penal off the tee, with some chances for birdies. Great finishing hole! Would recommend this course for the less than $25 price I paid.

We appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback. We wanted to take the opportunity to let you know we have not shrunk our greens. They may be smaller than the original design 30 years ago, but they have not been intentionally shrunk. We are glad you were pleased with the fairways, bunkers, and holes. We hope you give us another shot soon.

As a Snowbird, we booked through Golfnow as we appreciate the Hot Deals that are offered. I have been to the course before but decided it was worth trying again. The tee boxes for the men were in good shape but some for the women's could have used a little more seeding. We appreciated the well kept greens, for this time of year and the fairways were in great shape. Watch for alligators in the creeks and ponds, perhaps it would be a good idea not to try and retrieve your balls! I am just an average golfer but my partner is better than average and we both agreed that it was a challenging course. For me it was getting around the ponds but for my friend it was the shots to the greens that he found challenging.

signed up as a single and arrived at course 45 minutes before scheduled tee time to warm up and hit balls. Paid green fees got range balls headed to range only to be stopped by starter. Told me the three some I was playing with was waiting for me on the tee. After 45 minute drive no range balls no warm up and a 200 yard carry over lake on 1st hole. Not very happy with the situation.

This place is WAY overbooked and/or is inundated by local members who are old and SLOW! I would like to try it next November to see if it is OLD, SLOW snowbirds causing this or if it is home owners who were sooooo slow. If it is the owners then I would NEVER play here again! The course is decent, but didn't get to play all the holes.
