Everything from the check in to the play to the beautiful course was 5 star! I'd play here in a heartbeat. Only thing I'd be upset about was that the cart guys who loaded my vehicle left my little cooler I brought, not knowing they gave bottle water on the course, in the cart. But whatever. Great day. Thanks again!

The Waldorf course was very nice. Can tell the course could use some rain in a few spots. Most tee boxes had plenty of grass. A few bare spots. Nothing that hurt play at all. Greens rolled smooth. We're not overly fast, but were quick enough. Make no mistake that this is a player's course. Tight. Water lined. Tree lined. Huge bunkering with mounds. High lips. Come to play. The layout was good. Can't say there was a super memorable hole but all were good. Nice course. 4-5 stars all the way around.

Pace of play was far too slow, waited nearly every shot for 18 holes. I was not in a desperate hurry and it was a nice day, but what should have been an enjoyable experience became a drag.

Obviously a quality product, facilities of a high standard but would I rush back, I don't think so.

Cannot say enough good things about the course and the entire staff, to include the grounds crew workers. Was able to take advantage of an excellent "hot deal" rate. The course was not crowded. Pace of play was very comfortable. The course is a challenge with lots of variation in fairway bunker placement and water hazards. Long approach shots to the greens will find your ball rolling into water or down a steep slope.

One of the best courses and overall golf experiences I have had.

course really needs to be watered more. last time I played it was much greener and looked nicer. Course is still a great course as I stated before but for the money they charge without discounts, they should make the course look pleasing to the eye by being greener and making people feel better about the price plus it's THE WALDORF ASTORIA it has a name to up hold.

Once again the greens rolled true and were fast enough and in great shape. The fairways were very good shape and easy to hit off. The tee boxes on some holes was a little rough but still very good. the course was challenging enough and had to put ball in play. GREAT COURSE and would recomend to anyone

Upon arrival the complimentary valet parking took over, loaded the clubs, point the way and took the car.

Went to see the starter where range balls, chipping and putting area are located, all included. We were given water, towels, tees, divot tool, ball markers. The starter gave us pointers and someone came to check on us 4 holes later to ensure all was well. The course was in perfect condition. The only thing that could be improved was our play. It seemed as if we were the only people on the course, luckily hit a quiet day. Perfect.

As you would expect, the course was in great shape even with a slight drought going on. Service was also 1st class. It was a hot day and as soon as we pulled in with the carts, we were greated with a nice wet cold towel. Only negative I would say is the layout was nothing special. Couple nice holes but had the feel of a resort course (which I understand it is). Wish the layout had a little more character

It is a very nice course with great customer service. However it was lacking that wow factor on course design. I kept looking for "that signature hole" but couldn't find it. What they have is maintained very well. Fast greens but they role true.

Staff was friendly / helpful / etc. all that you would expect from something with Waldorf on the Name. The course was in very nice condition, greens are fast and the raised greens made it a bit difficult for me and my wife. We were a twosome, with a threesome in front of us. Played in just over 4 hours. Just fine for resort course to me.

The range was very beat up where they had us placed - disappointing and the range balls weren't as nice as I would have expected.

There were groups behind us that are regulars. We didn't have anywhere to go, yet they were standing with their hands on the hips. Even though we had to wait for the group in front of us. The group behind us got into it with the group behind them. Really?

I'm local to central Florida and would not return to this course as there are courses in just as good of condition around Florida for much less money.

Great course,plush fairways nice practice area... downfall the greens were extremely slow and very grainy. Greens just don't match the rest of the golf course if you like decent speed greens. If I had to guess probably rolling around an 8
