Booked this course at the last minute. They put me with 3 Canadian Pensions Managers, but they were not boring. The course, the pace of play and the staff were excellent. It was a good day all round. Would highly recommend it but it is very expensive compared to similar courses in the area.

It was a very good experience for me and my wife. I've played a lot of golf courses at this is one of the best layouts I've seen. The greens were immaculate and Fairways plush. We will be playing at this course again.

I played this course on Easter Sunday, Hot Deal. Practice balls are included with the round, so next time I'll arrive a little earlier to take full advantage.

Best conditions of any course I've played in recent memory. Greens are firm, but receptive, and roll true 1-18.

The course itself is very forgiving -- wide fairways, large greens, very few trees to avoid or scramble around, straight holes for the most part.

Will definitely play here again given the Hot Deal opportunity.

This course was in great shape when we played it. Great variety in hole architecture. Well thought out bunkers and approaches to the greens.

Course management a must on many holes, especially with the wind.

Greens are undulating but roll true. Play it every year a couple times on our winter golf trip.

Great course great layout however weekend play was terribly slow. We were not able to finish the round with the last few holes being great holes to play. Something really needs to be done with Rangers controlling pace-of-play. A good price does not matter if you cannot finish the round

Aside from a 20 minute delay waiting for carts, this was a great round. Course is in excellent condition considering the drought conditions. Good deal on GolfNow for an afternoon tee time. Finished in 4 hours. Staff are very friendly and helpful! Will be back for sure!

The course is 2 years old and allows the public to play while they finish the home development. The course was beautiful and well designed. Some of the holes are supper remote and it was so quiet which is not always common. Conditions were superb and the staff was so nice. The only reason I scored the course a 4 on the amenities is because they only have a temporary proshop in a trailor until they complete a permanent club house. Pace of play was really good for how busy they were. They got us out in front of a big great that was appreciated. Great place and glad I played there.

Greens are smooth and fast but not too fast. The green conditions are the best part of playing here. Layout is your basic Florida course, nothing special. The front nine is currently brush and scrub lined which is pretty cool but will be a maze of houses soon, similar to the back nine now. Worth playing but far from spectacular. Currently temporary club house facilities but who cares... much more interested in the course and conditions.
