ENJOYABLE DAY

Booked my round through Golf Pass which indicated "Golfpass Perks" were included. However, the Pro Shop staff member did not know anything about it, but he offered a small bucket of range balls.

Overall, the course is in good condition with fast greens.

19th hole burgers and brews were grest.

Enjoyed the dsy.

Good Value for Money

The course is generally in good shape. Some lower lying areas were very soft owing to recent rains; hence balls would sometimes plug or have attached dirt, but not a big deal. Fairways are fairly tight and with the soft conditions the course plays long.

The greens are fast; however, they are also hard so it can be a real challenge to get the ball to stop near the hole with long shots from the fairway. There is a paucity of sand in most bunkers around the greens which takes a bit of getting used to in order to hit quality shots.

Driving range, chipping and putting greens are good and are similar to the course.

Classic layout, great value!

Always on the list when we visit Orlando. Classic old school style golf course, lot's of history, former home of the Florida Citrus Open. Course was jammed played on Martin Luther day, but moved pretty good and nice to see the place busy! Course was in decent shape, always great value. always fun to play a track that has some rich history of the PGA tour's past! You can see the course has had some money put into lately, good to see, a recommended play.

Enjoyable!

Great weather equals a very busy Friday afternoon at this course, but we were still able to grab a last minute tee time. Big plus that we were able to play as a twosome since we are still beginners. Staff was very friendly, price was amazing, and we were impressed by the condition of the course and the layout. Pace was perfect. Will play again!

Great golf experience in historic surroundings

Friendly welcome and helpful staff started our day off well. Fast pace of play as it was quiet. Course in good condition and very playable. Greens on slower side. Pretty dry course considering all the recent rain.
Fox squirrels made their usual appearance. They really like peanuts so make sure you have some for a fun feeding experience.
Lovely course, steeped in history and well worth a visit.

Improved but Not Fun

I haven't played Rio in over a year. The greens and fairways are very good right now. Very happy to see that. But to be honest with you, this course is just not fun to play. If you aren't playing extremely well at the time you play here, you're going to have a bad time. If you miss the fairway, you're pretty much in the trees. Pitching your ball back out to the fairway 40% of the time is never fun.
