Felt like a no-frills country course. If you want perfectly manicured sand traps etc, it's not that. Fairways very good, greens OK, but somehow it works.

Great course!

First time there. Multiple tees to choose from, I did not choose wisely....Played from too far back. Made for tough seconds and even tough drives trying to avoid hazards and trees. But a wonderful course. Plan on returning!

Nice Challenging Course

Trees or sand will add strokes to your score if you cannot place your drive. Greens were fast but you should look at the grain to help determine put speed. Played here several times recently and found the conditions one of the best around Ocala.

Course and pace of play was very good. Starter set the pace off the first tee. Got paired with a single which made us a three and only waited a small bit. Was a hot deal but just had to ask the group who paid before me if they had any special card or membership that got them their total rate for two 23$$ cheaper than my hot deal, and he said no they were from out of town. Guess I learned my lesson to call for tee time directly to the course..

Very nice course. The starter needs to leave more time between groups. After the first hole it becomes backed up

Nice Course with some Character and Challenge

This course will not disappoint you! Great track in good condition. They were redoing some of the bunkers for drainage, but not a issue. The only issue we had was we had to wait on almost every hole and it was a really hot day.
Would definitely come back.

Old fashioned player friendly course

Fairly nice layout, in good condition. Tee boxes are set up very well for players of different abilities, in terms of appropriate yardage. Very little water and out of bounds or wooded areas. Enjoyable place to play!
Worth a visit

First Time

The course is beautiful. The greens and fairways were is good condition. The sand traps were questionable. Some didn't have sand in places. Not sure if the course managers were wanting to let the traps grow in a natural state or if they needed better maintenance. All in all it was a good experience and will definately be on the return list.

Great layout!

This is 3 rd time playing this course and look forward to playing again. Great mix of holes with good right left variety. Greens rolled true fairways and tees very good. Sand traps need alot of work. They have poor drainage and most need to be reengineered. I would suggest they rethink the bunkering for easier mainantance. Course is strong enough to due with fewer smaller bunkets. I would leave the depth around greens and narrow with. Buy sand not maintenance.

Great course to play with some challenges and uniqueness

Play this course with some friends and it was a great round, greens were quick and Course conditions were overall great for this time of the year. Had to wait early in the first nine holes not too bad but clean sailing after the front 9.
Would come back, great value for the price!

Ocala National at Golden Hills Country Club

Played Ocala National at Golden Hills Country Club today. Course was wet, but the fairways and greens were in good shape. Greens were pretty fast but ran true with not a lot of break in them.

Lots of hills , not to many water ways, and some woods that you will need to stay out of.

Temperature was in the early 70's with cloudy skies.
