Fairways were very dry and hard. A number of sandy patches makes for difficult lies. Also the pin placement was very difficult. I've played this course before. Today was uncharacteristic.

The staff was nice. The clubhouse, Mulligan's pub, and practice areas are nice as well. The course however, isn't in top shape. The greens roll pretty true, but are also pretty hard as far as being receptive to your approach shots. The bunkers are deep, and there are a lot of them, which isn't really an issue, just an observation for people reading the reviews (I like playing from bunkers). They do however have rocks in them, so make sure you rake a place without rocks before you hit. They are also very fluffy, FYI. The course layout puts a premium on accuracy with many trees and elevated greens. Some even come into play in the center of certain fairways, so knowing the course is also important if you are going to score well. I don't mind shooting a bad score, that doesn't determine if I enjoyed playing a course. But with this course, with a combination of layout and condition, is not a very enjoyable place to play. The only way I would play this course again would maybe be in the summer months where it may be in its best shape, AND if I lived within 15 minutes of the course. But as someone who travels 30-50 minutes to play courses, this is not one i'd be willing to play again. To the staff: thank you for making the experience as enjoyable as possible. Best of luck with the course.

I've played this course 3 times over the years and love it every time. Yes, it's tight, but choose your right club and you'll be fine. Only reason for a 4 in conditions was due to the sand...needs more attention. Love the layout. It was the cheapest of all courses we played due to their Two for Tues. We were treated very well by all staff and were the second and third groups off, so no back up at all. Mulligans was good for lunch and we were 30 mins away from our Jays game. Everything was GREAT!

Awesome course if you have a sense of humor.

Most greens are elevated and some fairways have small hills.

It is a very challenging course with many greens surrounded by traps. You must be on the low side of the greens or prepare yourself for a tough up and down.

Some grrens were void of grass, especially on the front nine, and a lot seemed hard. Rough areas along some fairways very void of grass. Like hitting off mud. Most sandtraps were in poor condition either dur to erosion or low amounts of sand. Good variety of traps however, i.e. size and depth.

This course certainly puts a premium on accuracy and not distance. Most holes are so tight, the average amateur should hit an iron off the tee just avoid disaster. Frankly, there aren't many memorable holes on the entire course, just very tight fairways.

Course conditions are nothing to brag about either. Don't take a club you like into the bunker because they are mostly rock. Greens actually roll well, but the rest of the course is nothing to brag about.

The biggest problem with this course was my swing. A bit tight and rough means rough. That only keeps play moving as you won't need to look for that stray ball. High score Fun round. Ray

Great layout very challenging. You need to have all aspects of your game fine tuned to score at this course. Used every club in my bag, one of them more times than I want to admit to. Great greens, fast and frustrating...this is where I used one club more times than one would want. You need to have the skill to make every shot imaginable, left to right, right to left, punch, high shots, better be a good bunker player! Will definitely tell others to play here, and can't wait till I come back next year and play again !

I play this course often because it is close to where I live. I was disappointed in the tee boxes ( very little grass, some only dirt), greens (many with hard pan dirt, and no grass), fairways, (dry out with hard pan). Wentworth has the problem that there are very few ponds, water on the course. Therefore, when there is little rain, the course is terrible. Needless to say, this course needs a good soaking.

Mulligans is awesome. Great food!!!

Greens were decent but much of the rest of the course was in fair to poor condition. There are too many artificial holes for my taste and there is often simply not enough golf course. Am decent player but lost many balls. First time in FL but every time I mentioned this course to other golfers they agreed with my assessment. Found a nearby course much more to my liking.
