I played on Thursday (March 16). The course is in good shape. Some of the bunkers had a lot of rocks in them, but they were playable. The greens were very slow, if your used to fast greens you will struggle to adjust. I know I did. The course is a very tight course off they tee. I played from the back becuase it is not a long course. I play/practice here a good amount. I would recommend it to anyone. The round took just at five hours which is horrendous, but I think maybe I caught it on a bad day. Give it a shot if you've never played. Its a fun little course.

I like good old courses and this is one. Good layout, good variety. Greens need to be rolled, but were in good condition. Very friendly and helpful staff.

On-site restaurant (a real restaurant) is terrific. Good food, good terrace, good beer selection.

Off the back tees the course is short, by modern standards ,at about 6200 yards. However, the design of the course, reminiscent of similarly old British courses, is extremely interesting ,with positioning of your ball more important than length. Golfers have to think about every tee shot. Very enjoyable to play.

We have played here before and our only complaint was the slowness of play. We played in 4 hour this time which is reasonable for a City course on a Sunday morning during the season. Course was in good shape. Driving range with mats is a pain but better than nothing. The restaurant here is truly one of the best at a golf course including the private clubs in our area. Worth the time and money to experience this course.

My review is not probably typical because our tee times followed a tournament that ran late. As such we had a lot of downtime, which eventually turned into frustration, and then lack of enthusiasm to finish more than 9-holes.

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.
