I like this course very much. It is a fun layout and you will be able to use most of the clubs in your bag.

A great combination of short par 4, one short par 5 and long and short part 3.

Yesterday was in the worst condition I have seen it in a long time.

I believe this dry season has hit hard most of South Florida golf courses and this one is not the exception.

Fun to play anyway. Great value.

We enjoyed our round. Timing was perfect ! The staff gave us the wrong score card so,that was a little

confusing and some holes were not marked got a little lost. Conditions were fine for the value.

Will go back and play the other coarse.

Executive Course is cut, maintained, and the greens are decent enough and puttable, but the fairway turf conditions and tee boxes are poor. Fairways and most of the turf through the green on the course is kind of a Floritam/weed mix cut short. However, it was actually playable and there are some par 3's over water to keep it interesting. No sand bunkers makse it easier for beginners. Very windy day so even though most of the holes are easy, scoring was a challenge. Mostly older retired Canadians playing on a Monday Holiday in January. If you are seeking plush fairways and groomed conditions go elsewhere. I took my 10 year old son and we were able to hit multiple practice shots on nearly every hole and stay between the group of retirees in front of us and in back of us. $34 was pretty steep for the course conditions, but GolfNow was running a buy one round & get 2 coupons for future rounds so it was a good deal overall. Nice day for my son to hit quite a few practice balls under playing conditions on a holiday in peak season. Staff was friendly, and we had a great time. I would never recommend the course to competitive golfers comfortable with typical country club conditions. Greens were actually better than some of the cheap munis I've played, but even in season, there are better values with better overall conditions. I would never book our regular golfing group to play this course, but for a fun afternoon with a kid, or for any beginner who is nearby and on a budget it's OK.

This is a great little course. Very enjoyable with a truly nice design, good variety in all 18 holes.

Now with greens that are really in great shape.

I play it regularly as you can play it in three hours or less. A great place to sharpen your game
