Rough condition

Great layout and cool elevation changes, Fairways and bunkers are the worst I’ve played in Central Florida. Weeds all over the sand, grassless pits craters everywhere. Hope they can get it together, the course could be cool.

Elevation

If you want elevation changes in Central Florida, this is a good course. However, the bunkers were very overgrown with weeds and the sand that was exposed was more dirt than sand. The greens were pretty inconsistent with some burnt out spots and a couple greens were sanded as well. At $33 at 11 am on a Saturday, you get what you pay for. The pace was slow as there was a group in front of us that thought it was the Masters and had to expertly read their quadruple bogey putts.

Not like the old days

The course needs some work. Very little grass on fairways. The greens are spotty with some greens having bare spots. I have played this course since it was the Diamond Players club and the change is sad.

Some Fairways and greens need improvement

Layout is very nice, is a peaceful course but Some fairways and greens are not in good conditions. It could be better. This course has beautiful views so I enjoy the round any way.

O SO SAD

This used to be such a nice track. The layout is great and the greens were in pretty good shape. The fairways, rough and traps were pathetic. Zero maintenance and horrible drainage issues.

Golf now booking

Why do you need golf now yo book courses then get charged a fee when you get there? This happened at Sanctuary ridge and Metro West. Seems that GN is a waste.
GN should inform you that all fees are not covered when you set a tee time and how much more you will pay when if you still want to play that course. Looking forward to your response.

Sanctuary Ridge in Clermont Florida is the worst Course I’ve ever played on it’s in such bad shape it shouldn’t even be open for business. No matter how cheap it is it is not worth it trust me

Course needs love

Bunkers have no sand. Fairways are worn out. Greens were fair. It’s a little sad the course had to have been beautiful at one time. With all the elevation changes in it’s prime it had to be quite the course.

Better than it was 6 months ago

This course needs water. It is dry with patches of green. It needs the bunkers to be redone and some omitted. It needs someone to pull the crap grass. It needs mowing in a couple spots. Plusses... The greens roll consistently. They're working on the greens to get them better and you can tell. few greens are spot free but the main thing is number 18 rolls as nicely as #1 and all in-between.
