Soggy

The course does not drain well. Fairways soggy and mushy affecting course conditions and play. I marked would not recommend...after any rain. Otherwise, when it is dry, it is a challenging course and fun to play.

Rio Pinar --Central Florida Classic old time Country Club

I love playing Rio Pinar --the front9 cut out of trees makes for narrow fairways, but personally I prefer the back9 w/couple of interesting par5s. Over the years now, I've moved up a set of t-markers, so be sure to plays from a comfortable yardage to make the round more enjoyable. This day the greens were a bit on the slow side, but with high humidity & heat of Summer months, that's to be expected. The pace of play was good, especially when a 4some let my 2some thru, but we were cut short by the afternoon T-storm. The clubhouse offered a fine Lunch-special, so The Rio is a fine place to utilize GN for great deals & golf.

If your a good golfer...you will like this track

I have always liked this track...I use to work as a standard barerer at the Citrus Open back in the 70's and have a fondness for the history of this Golf club.

S. L. O. W

The course is in decent shape. Greens are reasonably quick. The edges of most greens are bad because it looks like they are trying to enlarge the greens.

The facility is badly in need of a remodel. But the real problem is slow play. No rangers out there to love people along. It reminded me why I haven’t been here in a while. It’s always dreadfully slow. Please do something about the pace of play!!
