Surprised by aerification

Booked through golf now, drove 45 minutes to replay this fun track. Had been here last week and wrote a stirling review. As we entered the clubhouse, we saw a sign saying “restaurant closed due to aerification”. I looked at my brother and said “wow, I hope the restaurant has a turf floor and they don’t mean the course”. Well they meant the course. It had been aerated the day before and was totally unplayable as the greens were covered with chunks of dirt and mud. I spoke to the manager about why there was no aerification alert on Golfnow and he blamed GolfNow for not posting it. I also asked why they didn’t post a sign last week and he had no answer. Very disappointed after the log drive and stuck with no other option except to play on un-puttable greens, and to have the restaurant closed.

Fun course, amazing elevation changes

Played here a few times, always enjoy playing this hidden track. Super friendly staff jumped on our bags from the parking lot and guided us through checkin. Reasonable price through golf now. Greens were excellent with plenty of break. Tees and fairways a little rough in spots but mostly fair to excellent. What makes this place unique is the extreme elevation changes on just about every shot you hit. The only flat stance I had all day was in the pro shop while checking in! I’m a 10 hcp and played the blue tees and was adequately challenged on every hole. My wife is a 17 and was happy with her position and opportunities on every hole. Very fair course. Drinking water on nearly every hole and beverage cart available. Lots of natural hazards abound on each side of most holes and if you hit it crooked expect to be taking a long walk down a hill for your next shot.

Poor condition it use to be a nice course

Fairways are thin, greens are slow and bumpy and not mowed, rough well if your off the fairways good luck finding your ball. The course use to be one of the better ones

It's been a dry summer

The greens were slower than I'm used to for Sanctuary Ridge, but they were generally rolling true. The fairways were OK, with many of the less important areas (drive on to the fairway and green surrounds) having excess bare patches. I'm really surprised that few are playing here, since the price is good and most of the problems are cosmetic without affecting play. Just don't lose a ball in the deep rough. You may not find it.

Great layout, interesting elevations.

This course is a bit of a paradox. Unique topography that makes for a very fun layout. Like many central FL. courses it gets a bit overgrown in the summer. But if you keep it in the fairway it is very playable. After a period of neglect the course seems to be improving slowly. Goofy no carts allowed in the parking lot policy a bit of a deterrent to many. Pricing seems a bit steep for summer rates and current conditions too. Still it merits a round to test your skills.

Coarse in poor shape

I like the coarse layout but the conditions are poor. The are bare areas on the fairways , greens and rough. Grass in the rough goes from 8" to no grass. It needs a ton of work. It is a shame because when this place is in good shape, it is a fun place to play. I used to enjoy playing here, not now. The conditions remind me of the Legends coarse before it closed.

The name of the game is fun

The scenery is great and the hilly course is fun, and challenging. This course is accommodating to just about any level player. Play it , I think you'll agree.

A great course destroyed

Sanctuary Ridge is without doubt one of the most challenging and enjoyable courses in the hills of Florida. If it were in better condition it would rival Mission Inns El Champion. Sadly it in deplorable conditions with runnels running through the fairways and multiple bare areas. The grass is overgrown and the greens on the front nine especially are just bad. Cannot understand how Clermont and the county does not see holding as a part of their treasure and step in to assist these great golf courses in that area.
