This is the second time to this course, it was just as nice . The course layout is challenging, and the fairways were lush and green even with the semi drought that Florida is having. Great value for this moderate priced course.

Hard to judge this course on this day. The wind was 2-3 clubs all day. Still it was a pretty interesting layout in really good condition. Resort quality at public prices. Greens were fast - probably because the wind had dried them out. Fairways would in good conditions. Getting on the course was a bit challenging because the valet parking-starter process was somewhat convoluted. But once the round was underway, I enjoyed it as much as you can when you are constantly guessing the wind. I would play this course again for sure.

Falcon's Fire was a disappointment. I played there several years ago and thought the layout was unique (bunkers (seems like a million)line most of the fairways) and not particularly penal. The layout was the same as I remembered but the condition of the course was poor. The greens rolled okay but were sparse at best and did not receive shots well. My grandson played the tips (he is a plus 1) and I played one set of tees up (I am an 8) --- and we both hit the ball high with spin but, regardless of the length of the approach shot, the ball rolled out five to ten yards.

The fairways were sparse (might have been an uneven over seed job) leaving many balls in the fairways in between sitting down clumps of grass. The grass on the back nine was better but still not very consistent. Additionally there were several locations where the sprinklers were either broken or over watered allowing for little roll. Surprisingly, the bunkers were more consistent and better manicured.

Pace of play was average, not helped by a charity shoot out on a par three (for a good cause). As we played 10, we would see three groups on this hole.

The range was worthy of a under funded muni - small clumps of grass surrounded by dirt and divots. Practice balls were extra (why not add a few dollars and give each player a small bucket).

The GPS on the carts was a definite plus. decent over view shot and very accurate distances to the green. Easy to get carry distances as well as from, back and hole locations.

No doubt this course gets heavy play from December through April but the condition was disappointing.

A good course to try if you want to get away from Disney or other popular resorts in the Orlando area, or if you want to pay less to play than the Disney courses would charge. Bring your sunscreen, however; shade is hard to find.

At first I thought this round would be terrible. I was called to the tee by the attendant/starter 20 minutes before my tee time, cutting my practice time short. I then waited for 20 minutes while other groups teed off. I told the staff about this and they were very responsive as to why I was upset. Probably a bad idea to have the attendants double as starters, but that's what they do there.

We played from the tips - which gave some added length to some already long 4s. The front nine is somewhat gentle, and the fun really begins on the 12th hole. There's a lot of variety, and opportunity to score. The last few holes are very challenging.

The course could be maintained better - there were a few greens with patchy grass, but everything rolled fairly fast and true. The only negative about the back nine is that a few holes were right next to a highway - kind of noisy.

Overall Falcons Fire is a good challenge. I'd certainly play here again.

After many years of driving by the course finally got to play it when we got an "Easter Special Pricing" from Golf Now.<br/> Everything was top notch at the course from "Valet Parking", to staff friendliness, course conditions, pace of play and the beverage cart service.<br/> Would play the course again when favorable price is available.

It had been a couple years since I played Falcon's Fire. Last time I played the pace of play was slow and the course conditions were average. With all the great course options around, I had chosen not to play for quite some time.

When I played this time, the pace of play was great and the course was in fantastic shape. I am glad I chose to play the course.

This was the first time that I played this course (I usually play at Celebration) and I will definitely be back. I played with two guys from Indianapolis who come down every year with a golf tour. They told me that Falcons Fire had always been included in previous tours but not this year, so they flew down a day early just so that they could play the course again - and I quite understand why.

The course was challenging but very fair - no horrid surprises, hidden hazards etc - and in great condition.
