Thought I would have plenty of time to finish 18 we’ll before sunset but the pace of play was so slow, had to wait on every tee for front nine ( the one hole we may have been able to tee off right away, we found three guys who gave themselves permission to jump in. So much for etiquette). Don’t know if too many out playing or lack of ranger to keep things moving but about 2:45 to play first nine. I gave up on doing the back, would never get it done.

Course itself had some interesting holes, greens we ok for most part, traps were hard and need of work, and fairways had many hard, thin spots from cart traffic. I did not play well but hard to get going when you have to wait so much.

The pace of play was way too slow. One of the pairs called it quits after nine. We quit at 17 as it was too dark. We like the layout and were advised some greens were under repair.

We finished in 3 1/2 hours and were told twice to pick up our pace. Greens were great last year but some in bad shape now. Bunkers are unplayable (not enough sand, hard). We will not return.

Played this course a number of times recently, there was a problem with fungal infection on some of the greens. The ground staff have done a great job with this, course improving all the time. Would recommend playing here, staff very friendly and great at teaming you up with other golfers.

I played this course for many years and it gets worst year after year. I knew for the price I could not expect too much but it is the last time I play this course. We had to search for grass in most of the fairways and most of the tee boxes were mostly brown. We had to take our bags ourselves and put them on the cart but at the end a kid showed up in the parking lot as we were about to put our clubs in the cart to clean the club's and get his tips.

Sorry but this was the last.

The course needs to buy and supply some rakes for the many bunkers. Very frustrating to see the improvements and yet no rakes to maintain the bunkers. Over half the bunkers have no rake and many very large one have one.

I have always enjoyed playing this course. I played it when it was Kissimmee Oaks. This course has made big improvements under new ownership. I still fee that the greens and tee boxes need more work to make it a quality course. When that happens it could be the best course in Kissimmee.

Winter golf at it's best and so reasonable at $23.50. Some small issues on a few greens but staff explains and apologizes in advance. 90% of the green surfaces are better than good, they are in great shape and putt true on every hole. Playing there again on Friday.

If you play from te tips you better be able to drive 220 yds straight or better. I tried from there and found out the hard way I'm not good enough to play from back there. Next time I will definatly play from the whites.

Great lay out for the price. Saw 2 Gators on the course. 1st hole and 6th hole.

The team at Oaks are working hard to rebuild this course and they are making very good progress. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and at $23 for 18 holes, you really can not complain much. I simply do not like the layout of this course. Far to may strange turns and water for my liking. For many this will be a great course and an even better value, but I will play elsewhere.

I had read the mixed reviews and expected the worse but while the course has a number of greens with disease, and no question that's an issue, they are obviously working to rectify the situation and we could tell they are putting money into making improvements. While course conditions is certainly an issue, we could overlook that but for us the killer was pace of play. It took us 4:50 minutes and we waited on every single shot. It is intolerable to play under those conditions and even though we enjoyed the people we played with, there is no excuse for that length of round, I don't care how full the tee sheet.
