Nice Changes

Gotta give credit where credit is due. This course had gotten very run down. I was very pleasantly surprised today by the conditions of the tees and greens which were VERY good, and the fairways, which are GREATLY improved. If 3.5 stars was an option, that's what I would give. If things continue in this direction, it is definitely 4 stars.

There is a nice variety of holes here, and the prices are fantastic!

Nice course

Nice course that runs through and old neighborhood. Pretty forgiving layout, with room for miss hits. Overall a nice course for the money, and good practice areas.

Tee Tome Management @ Too Fast Greens

We played the course on Sunday, 3 March 19 with a 9::07 TeeTime. The course had a starter, but told us that getting us off with a 45 minute delay should be considered great compared to their normal delalys. This is unacceptable, and I will not book anothyTee time this type of course Management or the lack there of.

All would have been fine for the pace of play, but why would you ever cut your greens to a 12 or higher fior recreational golfers. This should never be done, and it slows down pace if play for good to average golfers.

Northdale Golf Course

Even though it had rained quite heave over night the course was still playable. Very few fairways that we could not drive the cart up to the ball. Staff extremely friendly.

Great day

We played Northdale again today and had an excellent day. Course was in very good condition. Greens are always quick here. We had 1 group in front of us and never saw anyone behind us. Pace was excellent today and we finished in 3 1/2 hrs. I enjoy the course and would definitely come back

Pay attention to the details!

There were few ball washers on the course and those that were available were old. The few rakes for the sand traps were very old and should be replaced. The water container at the firth tee was empty at 11am. The parking markers in the parking lot should be painted; I ran over one since it blended in with the concrete.

I didn't get a chance to play because I wouldn't finish in time to pick my wife up and they would not let me reschedule for a different date.

Good value

The course was in decent shape. A few very challenging holes , water on 16 made it interesting. Fairways were decent, tees were fine, greens very fast. Played on Friday afternoon, pace was great. Overall a very good value for the money

Fantastic greens

Fairly flat Florida style course (around houses, etc), but I really enjoyed it. Conditions were good (with the greens being great) and everyone was friendly.

No range, but they do have a net to warm up into. I’ll be back.

Good value for the money

Good value for the money
If you can get this course on a hot deal it is worth it. The layout is good and the green complexes are as well but both the greens and fairways need grass growth. Fairways are rockhard in places and can result in ugly bounces. Bunkers need work and need to be raked More frequently than bi monthly. There is no driving range here but a “hitting net“ with about five stations

Very nice course.

First time at Northdale and was pleasantly surprised. Fairly wide open fairways but a good challenge. Greens were receptive and rolled very nicely. Overall conditions were very good and it was a nice round of golf. The clubhouse staff was very welcoming. If you get a bite to eat don't miss the cheessteak. Seriously good!
