Too far too drive for this average course

Arrived 45 minutes before tee time and even though there was NOBODY going off we couldn't check in for another 15 minutes.. Some rule they have with online tee times.. So we bought a medium bucket of balls for $9 ( little pricey) and had to walk back to the parking lot because we couldn't get a cart yet.. Teed off 10 minutes early but by then we had a 2 some behind us.. AGGRAVATING to say the least.. A lot of the tee boxes need leveling and the greens were slow.. the layout is nice and challenging .. there were a couple of blind holes , especially 18.. Glad we played when we did.. Had to rush to finish 18 because of the storm.. For us it was not worth the 70 minute drive!

Habitat Golf

Greens and fairways in good condition. Bunkers understandably show the effect of all the rain. The only real complaint is that the tee boxes need to be maintained better to make sure you have a level area to tee off from.

Overall good. not great experience. Course staff very friendly. Picturesque setting. Nice layout. Challenging course. Most tee boxes were not in good shape. Greens were inconsistent - some good, some very bumpy. They need to be rolled.

Still Hard to Challenge the Champ!

I still feel that Habitat is one of the top 2 courses in Brevard County, if not the best! You need to play it to recognize the differences it presents compared to other courses . Always in great shape no matter who actually owns it. Not an abundance of water but where there is, especially 18, it presents some challenge. Take it from someone who travels an hour or 2 for a good course, this one is worth the trip if you've never played it. Once that occurs, I'm pretty confident you'll be ready for a return trip.

Could use a roller

Course conditions were as expected with air rating the greens but I was surprised to find out habitate doesn’t own a roller to roll the greens it would help greatly in conditioning the greens it should be something you should purchase in the future still even with all the air rating it is still great playing here

current course conditions

Somehow Golf Now and sponsored courses need to communicate current conditions. The greens were plugged and sanded recently but rain had washed out most of the sand.

Coarse layout challenging

Haven’t had rain for a long time! Greens in great condition, but fairways need water. Layout of the coarse fun, lots of blind shots. Lucky to have a local that knew the coarse playing with us. Will play again when fairways get better.
