Skip It!

Spend your money somewhere else. The description on Golf Advisor made this course sound very good and worth the time but it wasn’t. Hosted professional events? Maybe a long, long time ago but that was well before the current ownership/management let the course go to pot. Fairways had patchy grass that was like a steamroller had rolled over it. I preferred being in the rough where the ball had grass under it. Same for the tee boxes. I played with a member who said due to the declining conditions the course had lost 80% of its membership. Spend your money somewhere else.

Very disappointed

Pace of play because not very many playing course. It was wet, but the front nine greens were in bad condition. The course has made the greens a lot smaller than they used to be. I will not go back again, many more courses in Orlando area in great condition for the same money..

Has come a long way

Played this course a few years ago and while I liked the layout alot, the course was really rough. You can tell they are trying and have put $ into it and the condition is moving toward matching the great layout and beauty of the course. Most of the tees and greens were in good shape which was my biggest complaint before. I would recommend the course and would not have said that 2 years ago

Nice orlando area golf course

Work is constantly being done to this course and it shows. Some tee boxes were a little rough but staff working on them. Looking forward to playing it in the near future.

Great Layout -Keep Improving

I really like the layout a lot. Never played it before and will again. Good value. Course needs continuous improving. Greens unusually slow but you see that they are working on it.

The service was excellent and helpful. The carts were on their last leg. Markings on fairways where sparse but those that were there, were accurate to the middle of green distance.

This course is old school on green design and size. So bring your 6 iron thru wedge games here.

Very nice layout but needs a lot real maintenance from tips to greens. But definitely worth it and will test you!

Poor conditions for money

Paid $45 at tee off for a $55 dollar round of golf. I have played much nicer courses in Orlando area for less.

Great old school course

Great old school course, old pines and.live oaks. Great shape all around, little wet and muddy...but it was rainy all week, so that is what it is. Just a tough and fun long hole course, straight drives and consistency are the key. A lot of fun!
