Course conditions continue to get better and better. Greens, tees, and fairways were all in good condition. Couple of wet spots due to some rain the day before so the course played soft.

Pace of play was good at around 4 hours. It could have been better but the group in front of us played slow which was frustrating at times when you see no one in front of them for at least two holes.

I definitely recommend this course but be sure to book an early tee time. This course gets a lot of traffic after 10am.

You get exactly what you'd expect for a cheap green fee. Course had decent conditions but improvements could be made. Some yardage sticks or yardage on sprinkler heads would have been helpful. Golfers need to repair ball marks on greens to help the grounds crew. We were able to find some yardage markers but they were hard to find especially if you weren't in the middle of the fairway. Holes are open on many holes so can find your ball most times if you go wide often. I would have given it 3.5 stars if I could because of the cheap green fee. Would recommend the course for someone wanting to get in a round of golf and don't care about conditions. If you're looking for a nice course I would look elsewhere and pay a little bit more.

It's been a while since I last played Metro and it was in rough shape through most of this year. Seems its now under new management and Hampton Golf now in charge as the management company. Wow! The place has come around in a big way. They've overseeded and I bet in a few weeks this looks like the Metro of old, and what you see in the pictures. Can't wait...it has one of the best layouts and elevation changes anywhere in the central florida area.

The last time I played MW was a couple of years ago and it was horrible. The course seems to be on the rebound and in a couple of months I hope it is stellar like it used to be. The resident base has changed and alot of the money has left and golfers have aged. It's time to get the prices in order to bring some people back.

$45 for a December morning wasn't too bad but in the past the same round would have been $85.

$10 for a large bucket? Not good.

MetroWest has been on my rota of favorite courses. Then I played yesterday. The only unequivocally good parts were the practice tee and tee boxes. Greens were bumpy with multiple small pits. #16 had large mower tracks through it. Fairways varied between "OK" and burned out mixed with muddy and tracked up.

MetroWest is off my list until they improve their maintenance.

The greens were top dressed with sand. There are huge drainage problems. Greens that did not have much sand on them were really slow. This used to be a great ORLANDO course. What happened to it? If I were the owners I would try to sell it to Universal Studios so they would have a golf course to compete with Disney. Otherwise this will be overgrown with weeds soon.

The grass in the rough was too high. You will not be able to find your ball if you don't hit it in the fairway. We lost a few balls. I'm an average to below average golfer (like most golfers) and the condition of the rough made it hard to locate balls.

What happened to this course?

Layout has always been excellent. RTJ.

Tee boxes are in horrid condition

grass clippings on greens is just pure laziness.

staff appeared irritated to be alive. no signs of any management around.

I've recommended this track to many over the years. I've even brought clients occasionally. Not sure what happened but reflects that ownership doesn't really care.

Pride of ownership is apparently not a value of the owners. the customer experience is worth more than this.

good luck.

This is a Robert Trent Jones course that has some really well laid out holes. However, the course has not been taken care of very well. The roughs were incredibly long. Greens were in tough shape and the course was very soggy. But they didn't have it set as cart path only. There are easily 5-7 courses in the immediate area that offer better bang for your buck It makes me sad because this course could be really nice.

I have played this course many times. I haven't played it all in the last two years. I was shocked at the condition of the course. I realize the greens had been punched a couple of weeks ago. But the rough had not been cut for a very longtime. If you missed the fairway you were lucky to find your ball. The greens were dead in many, many places. They had tried to cover those places up with green sand. Lots of weeds on the greens. The traps were just mud holes. Not maintained at all. I will not play there again until it has been restored to the condition it once was. At $19 dollars it was way overpriced. Very disappointed.

Word is that this track is on the mend and had made big strides - I'd call that an overstatement. While you can see the effort going in to it's recovery, there's still a long way to go.

Several greens are very badly burnt out and they are beyond slowwww!! Fairways are in average shape, the rough is brutal. Bermuda grass that has been allowed to grow - good luck finding your ball in there if you miss the short grass. Certainly not helping pace of play either.

Played late afternoon as a single and the course was practically empty - moved around pretty quick until a cargo shorts clad slow 3-ball with 4+ open holes ahead and no etiquette put paid to that - seems indicative of the clientele that now frequents this location.

I'll be prepared to visit again in 6 months if the reviews continue to reflect a marked improvement. If things look about the same as they did today at that point, it's a course that will sadly fall of the rota. Shame what the prior management companies allowed to happen to what was one of the areas great little gems
