Great price, Not worth the drive

I played a few times last year. Near Orlando international. I'm a low HC and found it uninspiring. Great price, but at the end of the day, there are better tracks. No practice range on site. Have to drive to it (by car). From Kissimme, its a long way to drive for not a great day. I'll pass. Needs irrigation.

Pace of play

I have played this course 3 or 4 times. I like the layout but pace of play is terrible. Today they doubled booked tee times which lead to waiting every shot. 5 hour rounds almost every time. I am done with this course and so should Golf Now.

Fun course with challenging greens

Enjoyed my round.. not long course but on some holes you had to think more on positioning off the tee. Greens were fast and tough for me to read. Had a good time.

marshall needed

A nice course, always in good shape... a marshall is needed to speed some groups along. Went off at 11:52, the 2 groups in front of us could not have played slower, slow off the box, slow on the greens, backing up so many groups behind us. Saw a fivesome on #9 as I was leaving the course.

Great Round at Ventura

The staff at Ventura is excellent and very friendly. The entrance to the area is gated and parking is easy (plus you are allowed to drive the cart to your vehicle at the end). The course has six par 3's which area challenging and the other holes are fun too. If the area receives a lot of rain then drainage can be a challenge, but the conditions were perfect for our round. The clubhouse is very nice and outside players are welcome (had lunch there and it was great). The greens roll true and are in good shape. If you like a lot of par 3 holes and other challenge too, then this is a good choice.

Great customer service

My wife and I arrived at the course and realized that her golf clubs were at home in the garage! We were prepared to rent a set, when Bob in the Pro shop offered her a Ping demo set at no charge. He has always been kind and courteous to us over the years and makes us feel welcome.
We really appreciate him turning what could’ve been a disastrous day (for me) into a great afternoon. I don’t remember the girl that was there when we returned the clubs, but she was very friendly and accommodating, as well. Both are fantastic representatives of the club.
The course is short, but very challenging. Don’t let the shorter holes fool you! Greens were just a little slower than usual for us.

folks need to fix their ball marks....finding a half dozen fresh holes on every green . Fixed as many as I could. Lazy golfers suck.

Nice layout

Course has a nice layout, lots of water and lots of sand. Greens a little slow but in good shape.
Course is a little shot if you are a big hitter but overall a nice course to play. Course very busy but still play in under 4hrs. I would recommend this course.

Best Golf Value in a While

Played with my wife today.

What a great little golf course. It's short by typical standards but don't be fooled - there is plenty of challenge incltge par 5 6th hole with a 180 carry over water to start.

Conditions were excellent other than a couple of spotty greens. Lots of sand in the traps.

Do yourself a favor and play this one!

Great course

Course is short but can be challenging. Can play it safe or go for it. If you like strategic golf that this course is for you. Greens and course in excellent condition. Staff friendly, and very organized.

GREAT DAY OF GOLF

I believe this is my 4th time playing here this winter and I will be back at least 2 more times before heading to Texas in mid-March.

Ventura is getting better...there was some rain yesterday afternoon and it helped to improve the course overall. Some more precipitation is predicted for the rest of the week which is good.

Lots of very friendly people play here including a big contingent from Iceland.

Pro Shop staff and starters are very helpful and accommodating.

My buddy and I enjoyed some great food and brews at the very excellent 19th hole. And we both remarked how nice it was sitting at a window table, looking out over the very expansive pool and the 10 & 18 holes.
