Greens and areas around them are well manicured and really make the course. If you get out of place around the greens, hard to save par. Tee to green layout is ok, but a fun challenge. Staff was good.

Played this course with a group of 8 guys on an annual trip. Every guy in the group agreed this was our favorite of the courses we’ve played in the 5 years we’ve been doing this trip. Very challenging from 6700yds...especially when the wind is blowing! Course was in phenomenal shape, and greens were fast and true! Patrick was very helpful setting our group up for 36- holes, and the entire staff was extremely friendly. Can’t wait to go back!

Enjoyed the round and pace of play was good. It took about 3.5 hours to play. Course was in good condition and is very challenging especially if you miss the fairway or green. Would play again. The signage to enter the complex could be better.

Greg Norman brought the down under links to Florida golf. Amazing golf course. Much wider than I would’ve imagined. Play the correct tees or this course could be brutal. Blues and blacks should be reserved for serious long ball hitters. Shaved greensides make for balls rolling to swells 20ft below the surface at times. Pot bunkers can make for wicked stances. Avoid at all costs. Use the GPS to check yardages over and to them. Greens were quick. Course conditions were excellent. Omni does a great job with customer service. Tee time started on time but quickly caught the groups ahead so the pace of play was harsh. 5:05 for an 18 evening round. Luckily the course was well worth every wait. Must play. Highly recommend.

We play this course every trip to Orlando. Course is always in great shape. Price on golfnow is great. We played both courses. Nationals greens were far easier to read than the international. I prefer the layout on the National but either course is worth the money. Greens were recently sanded but they rolled true and fast. Book a t time. Trust me
