I played this course well over 15 years ago when I lived in South Florida and came up to Orland o to visit my son. I thought I'd give it a try since I have now moved to Central Fla. With many courses affected by Hurricane Irma I was looking for a course that had all holes open. I was happy with the course and its maintenance. It has recovered well from the hurricane, Much more the fairways and greens were very good . The course was tight so you had to hit straight shots or you'd end up in rough. I loved it and will be back. Staff was very friendly.

Played at noon on a Wednesday and it was packed! Not sure why. Pace was a little slow because we were only 2 and had multiple 4 somes in front of us. Was surprised by the 5 par 3's on the back nine! 4 of them in a row! I would play there again, especially at $15 for the round.

The course was not in a good condition. Honestly surprised it was still open. So many trees had been torn out of the landscaping that their were additional bunkers like crazy. Never again.

After months of bugging my wife to come play a round of golf, she finally caved in! Mind you I have only about 4 months of experience, so it was more about the experience of just hanging out with her. The weather was incredible and we were paired with two Dave's! Both couldn't have been more patient and simply amazing gentleman to my wife and I. It was a bit crowded, a couple impatient groups that must have had better things to do, bedsides enjoying beautiful weather. There were temporary greens on the first few holes, but nothing I would call bad. They actually helped my wife with her nervousness. All and all the club was great! The staff especially, I will definetly be returning again.

The course was in excellent conditions, albeit, 3 holes had temporary greens, this did not detract from a most enjoyable round, best greens we have played on since the start of our holiday ( 14 rounds of golf )

With the severe drought FL has been experiencing, the staff has done a very good job to keep the course in good playing conditions. I've played at a number of other courses in the area and some of them have only focused on keeping the putting green in good condition while letting the fairways go. Of course there are watering restrictions plus lack of rain which has severely hurt the process.

We only played 9 holes. The front 9 was closed for construction. The course was in good shape. However, I prefer the front 9 because the back 9 has too many par 3s.
