Renowned golf course architect Ron Garl designed the par 72, 6824-yard championship golf course.

My wife and I played her one afternoon, virtually had the course to ourselves. The greens were in fair condition, all putts ran true. The course is in good condition, a bit rough around the edges, and not pristine. This is a nice course for a cheap game. I will definitely go back.

Aggravating to book a tee time that would allow for 5hrs 35mins to finish and not get it in. Booked 1:08 tee time through GN. When I checked in the ticket said 1:15 time. Not a bother, still lots of time to finish!

We teed off at about 1:30, and because of the "regulars" that were being fit, in the course was saturated with golfers! I heard the starter tell a couple of walk-ons to go over and start on the back when you can jump in! Not Good enough! Would not recommend this course, and will not be back. GN hot deals golfers get treated as second class citizens at this course!

This is one of the most underrated public courses in the area. Compared to the city courses and some as far away as Pasco and Pinellas county, it does a good job of keeping the fairways and greens in above average condition. And the price is the same or lower than most. No driving range and not very scenic, but worth $25.

Amateur golfer that golfs 3/4 times a month. Course was in pretty decent conditions considering the start of fall. Greens were real well maintained. Make sure to bring your putting game. Slick greens. Tee boxes were OK. Not all were pristine but more than not it was bearable. Given the cost of a round through Golfnow. I would definitely recommend a round for a friend looking for a great course at an affordable price.
