Nice Layout - Rolling Hills

Loved the course and the elevation gains and losses, since I'm more accustomed to playing in the "flatlander" courses around the Tampa Bay area, having just moved to Ocala. Greens, tee boxes, fairways all in great shape and very good value for the fees. We're looking forward to returning.

Great layout

Always like coming here. Greens are next to perfect. Fairways need some work. Roughs in many cases are “ rough”. The grass around many traps is to long. Lost a ball in grass around fairway trap.

What a great course

Great conditions and a challenging course. Large elevation changes, high yardage and deep rough make for some tough holes. Spent a lot of time looking for balls that were in play somewhere, my fault for not hitting it straight.
Greens in great condition. Several bunkers were under repair, but at least they’re fixing them instead of ignoring. Pace of play was quick. Played through only one group who let me go Through immediately. Saw another foursome ahead of me in the back nine, but never caught them, and I was a single!
Overall, a great experience.

Great time to play

Played at 8:40 in the morning before it got too hot. The course is in very good condition. Except for all of the folks that won't fix their ball marks or won't pick-up their feet, the greens rolled very well and true. The greens were also soft enough to fly balls in and hold. There's a little too much grass around the bunkers on several holes.

Great shape

Played this afternoon in the heat in 2 hours and 20 minutes. Went off as a solo and played thru a twosome on the second hole. Didn’t slow down until I got behind a twosome on 12. Course is in great shape. Greens rolled nice and fairways were great. Great course at a great value.

In poor condition

Where to start? 80% of the bunkers ( and it has many) have grass growing in them as well as all around the edges. Some even have 6 inch high grass and weeds around the outside of the bunkers. There are 2 small water ponds on the course and both are covered with green slim. Tree lined fairways were very nice, but greens were mediocre . It is a beautIful piece of farm/ horse country land with nice elevation changes. Too bad it is being run into the ground from lack of care and maintenance.
