As always, Dubsdread is a fun course and well worth the white-knuckle drive into Orlando on I-4. The course layout is fun offering a variety of holes with tees to suit all. Dubsdread staff couldn't be ANY nicer, and the course is in very good condition. Regrettably, we had a foursome ahead of us that included two guys who played at Jason Day/Tiger Woods' "speed" so we waited a LOT (one guy hitting 8 practice putts before finally walking off the green!). We WILL return and just hope Jason & Tiger don't.

Okay course. I don't think it's worth over $25 to play. Greens looked amazing, but they didn't roll fast at all. Maybe 7.5 at best. Very small course with short par 3s from the tips, overall an okay course to play.

The tight layout and varied hole designs were delightful. The greens and fairways were in great condition - only the teeing areas needed some healthy help. As usual, it was a very pleasant outing.

In my first time playing the course, it lived up to what everyone said. It was a very tight course with not a lot of landing room. Leave your driver in the bag because there are only a handful of holes you can even think to use it on. The greens looked nice but rolled a little slow for my liking. This course will certainly tell you where your game is at. We were roughly 20 minutes late teeing off because of how packed it was, this was reflected in the pace of play. I will make sure my game is more intact before I test out Dubsdread again.

We went out there on a Saturday morning and were pleasantly surprised at the condition of the course. Layout is tricky if you have never played it before, which it was all our first time. With some course knowledge, it is definitely scoreable. Lots of irons off the tee, greens rolled true, fairways extremely tight. Lots of OB right off the fairways.

Other than that I enjoyed the day. Good value on a Saturday morning. Be sure to hit the Tap Room after your round. Top notch restaurant and facilities.

Nice Enough Old Course Layout, If Bunkers had sand it would help. Greens just too slow for my taste.

The Price and overall condition get my recommendation.

Golf course was in great condition but there was not enough parking so I had to valet park which cost me extra money. Would have been ok except when I was finished with my round there was no Valet Attendant around. Had to wait about 20 minutes for someone to show so that I could retrieve my vehicle.

Really enjoyed my round at this historic gem...The course has a lot of character and demands some discipline not to pull the driver on many of the tight fairways.. I was paired with a local high school player,Jordan, who was a nice young man and talented golfer. The staff was friendly and welcoming and I will definitely return. Only negative, and this is knitpicking, was that the greens were in final stages of recovering from aeration and bunkers were hard and in need of some rake work.
