First of all I would like to say that I was totally discussed at this course, when you charge champion ship price you better produce a championship golf course. That means the greens should be rolling between 10-14 not 6-8 terrible charging people for this. One way to kill a nice go,f course.

I have heard from a number of friends that I needed to play Shingle Creek. The course overall is an interesting layout and was in very good condition except the greens were incredibly slow. In fact, so slow they detracted from the fun of the round. That coupled with extremely slow pace of play 5-3/4 hrs made the day very disappointing, I am not sure if this is a normal problem but since we never saw a ranger out to speed things up I am guessing it’s a regular issue. Just beware of this when you go

Pace of play here is consistently slow, weekend rounds always 5 hr +. Called for ranger help twice today but no one comes. From the 3rd hole on 2 groups on the tee. Waiting every shot. Nice layout but not worth the aggravation, plenty of other courses to choose in this area.

The course was in excellent condition. Pace of play a bit slow, 4 hrs. 45 min round, we waited on most holes. The greens are smooth, but brutal, very penalizing with lots of undulations. It was fun playing, but it would not be my first choice to return. Very difficult putting. I did make a birdie! So it's not impossible, fun, but not normal.

From the time we arrived till we left someone was around to help except for a ranger asking if we needed anything. Our round was going good till 12 when we were slowed by a group of five who were also waiting for the group in front of them. Any way besides that the course was in good condition but the greens were slower than all of the surrounding course that we had played. They need to do better, as the were had to judge the speed. I would play here anytime though because it is a good course.

Top shelf establishment. Put my group out behind a 5-some. Starter said they played the day before in 4 hours. At times we waited and other times we were clear. Hit into them once when they were off to the side behind trees. Ended up playing in 4 hours 15 minutes. Not bad. Conditions were tough. Windy and chilly this day. Very good layout. Greens were good. Maybe a 10. Will play again.

The course had a good layout. Some of the holes in the last nine were new and the grass was thin. Many of the greens were set up with too many undulations. Great courses such as Harboit Town etc have difficult greens but make it possible to two putt

It probably didn’t help that I golfed at celebration the day before but shingle creek fairway grass was real short, which is tough enough for my skill level but then the fairways were mushy to where I couldn’t hit my irons st all. It wouldn’t be as much of a problem if I hit the ball first but I don’t! It rained before round but it also rained before Celebration round and fairways at Celebration drained much better. Greens were solid. Don’t hate the course just not one I’ll play next time in orlando

I’ve played Shingle Creek off and on for 10 years and always enjoyed the experience. The recent renovations and rerouting have both positive and negative effects on the course. Several good holes were eliminated the front and the reworking on the back also eliminated a beautiful long par 5. The replacement holes are adequate and growing in nicely. I was glad to see the last 3 holes fairly intact. The staff is always friendly, helpful, and attentive.
