Great visuals

Course was in great shape with good visuals from tee to green. Not a lot of blind shots. Pretty forgiving fairways without water coming into play on every hole.

Overall good value.

Great greens, pace of play and layout

Was very impressed with the greens. Played fast and true.

Interesting layout.

Played in under 4 hours.

They need GPS or maps because you can get in trouble if you have not played here before.

Used Golf Now so was $98.

Windy weather
Used cart

First time playing the Flamingo course. Course was challenging especially with the windy conditions.Pace of play was slow although we did play in 4:10. Course conditions were not very good. Tees were not cut as well as fairways. Greens were smooth although slower than we have been playing on. Played the Mustang 2 days earlier and it was in much better condition. I would give this place another shot because i enjoyed the layout. Hopefully in better shape next time.

We played Mustang.

The Course was in really good conditon but I really missed a course map or gps in the carts or signs with the tee boxes.We played with a guy who had played there a lot and that saved our round today.The starter told us that they have been waiting for gps to the carts for a long time now.

I would like to come back but I think it’s to expensive.

Mediocre at best

Good course for a non golfer. If you’re an avid golfer you will be underwhelmed by the design and layout.

Staff were very good and friendly.

Every tee marker was at the front of each tee block. There were limited sprinkler heads with yardage markers and no GPS on carts. Plenty of blind shots so you would drive up and your ball would be lost in a hazard you couldn’t see from the tee.

All flags were white so you couldn’t tell where the pin was on the green.

Mustang

Teed off early afternoon for a reduced rate, finished as the sun set. Conditions are excellent throughout.

Lely Allows 6-somes!

Course was in nice shape and the staff was very good; however we couldn’t figure out why it was taking almost 4 hours to play 14 holes. We went in early as we had another engagement to go too, and found a 6-some playing on the 17th hole as we went by. No rangers were sited after we started playing our round!

Course does NOT allow fivessomes or sixsomes. December is a slow period and typically there is only one ranger covering both courses.

No practice range

Over seeding range and it was unavailable. I pick courses that have ranges, and this deficiency should have been advertised. Ruined my day. I will never play there again.

Frank’s Review

Played course many times over last 25+ years. Worst condition I ever seen. Course looks very tired rough and fairways very poor condition. Bunkers had limited amount of compacted sand.

Not worth playing again @ $69 pm price to high for course condition.
