Very warm,fit nicely.
We had not played this course and where surprised how nice it was!!
Amazing Course Layout
One of the most visual courses I can recall playing in years. Absolutely beautiful tree-lines holes. Shot-makers course, Unique layout with numerous elevation changes, Very good condition, and remarkably low price given the quality and character of the course, You just have to play it,..
Tremendous views, quick pace, and great conditions
We played on a Saturday morning and despite a full tee sheet, our group played in a solid three hours and forty minutes. We were blown away by the aesthetics and charm of this gem. Every tee box offered a spectacular view of the Ocala hillside and every hole presented a different challenge. From 7,300+ yards, Ocala National required an infinite amount of shots and strategy, and it was fun trying to gauge shots that got hoisted up into the wind above the century old oak trees that lined the fairways. The overseed rye has come in nicely and the greens were running smooth. We can't wait to come back and play Ocala National again.
This course was an exceptional value. The layout took advantage of the relatively hilly (for Florida) terrain with almost all of the greens elevated. Shot placement is rewarded with smart ( and deep) bunkering, interesting angles and huge Spanish moss dripping live oaks. The course is mature and every hole makes you think. Rees Jones did a great job as usual on redoing the course. The people are friendly but the clubhouse is dated and the pro shop needs a lot of help. Conditions of the course are very good. The bunker sand is like wet cement, however.
If you appreciate really good golf design, you will love the course. If you’re looking for a luxury pampering go to a resort. I’ll definitely go back to this course.
Nice Course Design
Green are fast but not excessive. Course is in good shape, greens and fareways. Traps are deep. Every hole offers a different challenge.
The course was very good, again. We only get to play here 1-2 times a year when visiting my son in Gainesville. The course is challenging, especially for me today. I should have used the GREEN tees and not the GOLD. 6455 is too long for me - especially for my first time out this season. Staff was great, from check in to Ranger to cart helper.
Course was in good condition. Slow threesome in front of us but still a good pace. Greens in good shape.
The course is a great, challenging, and fun layout with character.. Fair,rewarding but yet forces you to consider choice of clubs and the shots. Greens were tricky.. i enjoyed my round and cannot wait to play again.
Good Course...pace of play comes and goes
My wife and I played this course; it can be too busy at times for I believe they overbook. Sometimes the pace of play gets rough and we have played 18 in over 4 hours at times. 3/12 hours on 18 should be on any course played.
Great course. Testing layout. Course conditions very good. All in all a great golf day.
No Carts Available - 50 Minute Wait To Start
We arrived 1/2 hour early and waited 50 minutes past our t-time for a golf cart. The golf course booked a group of 18 players before our t-time but did not have available carts and everyone was standing outside the clubhouse waiting past their booked t-time.
T boxs good, fairways good, traps not so good, greens good moderate speed. The fair rating for pace of play was given because the course overbooked a large group before our t-time and could not supply carts for the players to get to t-box number 1.
I have not played this course in some time , so I did not know what to expect. I brought a fellow student to experience the course with me. We were both pleasantly surprised at the conditions of the course. Greens were excellent and ran at a good pace. Layout is quite challenging for beginners and avid golfers. Great layout. Hope to return soon.
This course never disappoints. Beautiful course excellent friendly staff. Love this golf course.
Great course. Bunkers need work but overall course in very nice shape. Plays long with alot of elevation changes. Very challenging as usual. Must be able to move ball both ways. Will challenge every club in your bag. Will use them all also which is unusual for most courses. Fun track. Will return for sure.
