Shaggy

I have always enjoyed the layout of this course. The greens were in pretty good shape but the bunkers were in terrible shape....weedy and looks like they had not seen any attention in a long time. The fairways were OK but the area off the fairways were weedy and had not seen any attention in a long while. Some of the rough was up to your knees. With some attention this could be a hidden gem. It will take some time to get this course back in shape but with no more attention that it seems to be getting it may soon not be worth the money even at the reduced rates that they are charging.

Elevation changes

I played for the first time in about a year, the course has really improved. Greens, fairways and tees were good. Rough was high due to the amount of rain we have had. If you have not played this course in a while give it another try it is much improved and very playable

New owners gradual improvements showing

It’s SO IMPORTANT for the owner of Sanctuary Ridge to understand how important this course is to Clermont.
Other than Bella Colina, Sanctuary Ridge, in comparison, has the best VISTAs around. This you can’t take away. Although the course may rescind in condition the landscape is always there. For those that have trashed this course in the recent past need to come back and play this course. Regular maintenance and general improvements are on going and the efforts are paying off. The fairways are much improved and the greens are really showing improvements.

Refund?

I quit after 9, would’ve quit after 3 but I was already out of the house. Horrible conditions. I don’t know who they laid to leave the last couple of reviews but just read them as the complete opposite of what they wrote. How do I get a refund for this catastrophe? I was taking full shots with the putter just to get the ball to the hole on the green. The guy in the pro-shop that checked me in even had this look on his face like ‘I’m soo sorry’. Should’ve known.

Sad....

This use to be one of the best courses around. The layout, elevation changes and views are amazing however the course has gone down hill the last year. From the weedy fairways and tee boxes to the hard sand bunkers and uncut/patchy greens it's just awful. This is the closest course to my house since stoneybrook west closed so it's very unfortunate. I'm not sure what is going on there but either the owner quit caring or the people responsible for the conditions have no idea what they are doing. So sad..... The last couple reviews must have been from employees. =(

GREAT COURSE, one of my favorites

I've played here a few times over the last few months every week and have to say it has become one of my favorite courses. They maintain the course conditions and the greens are great. It is an interesting and layout that really challenges me. The Pro shop is real nice and so is the restaurant in the clubhouse OVERALL 5 STARS all the way around!!!!

Good day on the course.

Course was in good shape they were working on the greens and they were covered it what I am guessing was lime, but still playable. The course is pretty open but with lots of sand traps. Not a lot of golfers so the round was less than three hours. I will be going back.

Challenging but needs TLC

Clearly a challenging course due to multiple elevation changes and many blind shots. Requires skill with almost all clubs to properly navigate. The course does need to work on the integrity of the tee boxes, fairways and greens due to many weeds and bare spots. The greens are large, undulated but slow at they are not cut short.Very different than usual Florida courses and has good potential if better kept.

65/35 sad and sooooo close

What a great layout
what a great staff
What a shame 35% of course is in bad shape
Greens long and in slow mo

I believe with just about a 20% more effort on the course maintenance team you could pull this place to very good. I don’t own a golf course but just my humble opinion
I shot an 80 from yellow so I’m not unhappy
