Awesome front nine at dusk. Went expecting to just hit range balls with my girlfriend, ended up getting out for a few quick holes just before sunset. Staff in proshop

(forget his name, tall bearded guy) gave us a great rate as we were only going to get 6-7 holes in. This was very unexpected but made our night. I will definitely be back. Course is in awesome shape (no I am serious, top notch) and the staff couldn't have been better. Greens were a hair slow (maybe a 8) but it was at the end of the day on a Sunday, so that is to be expected! Overall I would highly recommend checking this course out. I have already told a few of my friends about how great the whole thing was.

Yes it was busy and a slow round but worth every minute. Very tight and not too long , perfect for a player who keeps it on the fairway. Excellent staff, totally friendly and helpful. Just a perfect day to take away the stress of the work week.

First time playing there after many friends recommendations. With so many modern courses in Orlando area, why to try a 6,100, par 70? Well, I should have played there before. Narrow lay-out, above-average conditions for a public course. You need to place the ball in the proper position in order to score otherwise course will beat you, no matter what is your skill.

I play this course often, and right now it is in the best shape ever. However the tee boxes are just a little sparse. The greens are a true read and you can really get a nice roll on the fairways as well.

The starter was very personable paired me up with two ladies and we had a wonderful round.

Saw the ranger who came around about 3 times monitoring play which was good, he kept things moving. You don't see rangers on many courses anymore. Dubsdread is A plus on my list.

Dubsdread keeps exceeding my expectations in terms of course condition and management. Although this course is short, it is tight in places and will challenge even handicap golfers. The layout of the course weaves through the eclectic college park neighborhood. Each hole is unique in its challenges. Lastly, this course is a great value course. The City of Orlando has continued to show that it will protect this almost 100 year old gem.

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.
