Maybe one day

I hate writing negative reviews about a really nice place with bad greens. It was like putting a fuzzy ball on Velcro, where there was grass. Not to imply that there was no grass on the greens as that is not the case. It appears that they had some of the black fungus that killed a lot of patches on the greens can only believe that they are working hard to remedy the problem and that could be a big part of why the greens were so long and slow. One or two greens looked like they had an equipment problem and the mowed strips were of different height with alternating strips looking like they had been scalloped with a bad set of mower reels.
The fairways were in great shape. No issues there. The facilities are nice, The people are nice. The cart girls are nice. The greens were not and that is my only complaint about this course.I remarked to one of the gentlemen playing with us that his put looked alike the NBA dribbling toward the hole the ball bounced so much.

I assume that they are trying to remedy these conditions. I don't know. I feel for the superintendent and sure hope this isn't the result of not putting anything back into the course. With so many golf courses closing or being turned into storm water retention reservoirs, I hope that the land does not become less valuable as a golf course. It is already tough enough watching golf courses in this area jacking their prices up in response to the COVID mania to lose another one. At least it was a Hot Deal and I did not pay full fare. Maybe they could borrow some help from their sister course and fix the greens.

Same old same old

Haven't been here in a couple of years and I thought that I would give it another try. Shame on me, I keep trying to let this course win me back and it keeps failing. Seems to always have bad greens, but this time, even the tee boxes were horrible. This course is only 15 minutes from my house, but I would rather drive 30 minutes or more and pay more for a better experience. There is 5 other courses within 15 minutes of this one, so I won't be going back.

Rough Greens

Overall most of the tee boxes are in ok shape as are the fairways. The greens are rough and it appears they are trying to combat this and letting the greens grow out. Putting was frustrating birdie attempts foiled by conditions. Putting through bare and rough spots with the longer than normal putting surface is too unpredictable. Hopefully as the season goes the greens return to a good condition which makes this course a gem.

Greens need some work

Many of the greens are not in that good of shape. Dead areas and rough. I have played here several times and the greens seem to be getting worse not better with the warmer weather.

Solid Course for Afternoon Price

Very solid course for the afternoon price of $37. Fairways in good condition and each hole has a unique layout. The greens are in okay shape. Definitely need some more grass on the greens because there were multiple spots of sand or not true rolls.

Again, great for afternoon value, would not play for full weekend morning price.

First time & COVID19

COVID19 protocols done well though there were no flagsticks at all here. I think a "no touch" flagstick on inverted cups policy is sufficiently protective as is done by other courses. Played Palmetto/Post Oak safely alone in less than 3 hours. I would play here again for sure.

DISAPPOINTING

I Scheduled a TT via GN, when i arrived we checked in, we went to the started to get score card, he told us we dont have nothing to give you, there are no score cards nor pencils to use. We went to the first hole and notice after the first shot that there were no flags, no one said nothing about that, none of the holes had flags, we didn't have a card to show us where the pings were so we were shooting at the greens blindly. The service is horrible plus they are charging premium weekend rates during the week for this crap. While everyone is out of work, they are taking advantage of our national crisis and screwing the same people that keep them in business. that is pathetic !! what a sorry organization, no sympathy for no one.

Would recommend if you can find a deal

The course is in bad shape even though fewer people are on it these days. Patrons arent repairing ball marks and since they took the sand away divots arent being repaired. Honestly, they should shut it down, resurface the greens and reseed. Only play this course if you can't afford to play a better one and if this one is less than $25. Warning, the greens are bad, some of them are borderline unplayable.

Trees, Wildlife, and People

The courses were nice overall, but could feel a bit crowded with the 3 courses' cart paths winding though one another in the forest of massive trees. The tee boxes, greens, and cart path were all worn down and looked like they needed a breath of life. We've had a ton of rain in the last couple weeks and when I played Cypress Lakes down the road 2 days later, their course looked to be in tip-top shape (but for 15 bucks more a person).

It was like golfing in the wilderness which had pros and cons. We managed to see many deer, rabbits, squirrels, lizards, turtles, etc, which was really cool and unique.

The course was still by all means playable, and had really great challenging but fair holes, with greens that rolled true aside from the occasional blot of rot, which made the outing fun from a pure playing perspective. But when I pay nearly 60 bucks a person I generally expect the course to look a bit more manicured and to have very welcoming and helpful staff to take the value to the next level. IMO Longwood seems to be at a point where I would not be surprised if it is thriving or dying in the next few years, based on how they take advantage of the place's potential.

Needs improvement but still playable

I understand this is the transition period for grass and the greens, even though fewer traffic, are bumpy and not well maintained. Several dead spot and people not fixing divots. They should have shut the course down completely and sanded all the greens to fix the impurities and give it a break. Tee boxes were tall. This course has some serious potential and I think the patrons need to play and do their part to help. Picking feet up on the greens, fixing divots, repair divot marks, etc... all of the stuff that comes with playing.
