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.

I was hearing about 5 and a half hour wait which made me nervous but ive never had a round more peaceful and open ever. It was just over 4 hours which is perfect. The greens were incredible! The undulation added was beautiful. I read other reviews saying they were awful but if your a golfer you will love them. They rolled very true and werent overly quick as they really cant be a 12 on the stimp with those undulations! Course is in great shape and service was 5 star! My man Luis was an incredible help with our tee time so that man should get a raise and promotion!

But nothing spectacular. I thought the greens are just stupid....I get undulations but whoever designed the greens was definitely a masochist (or never played them and thought it was funny). Course personnel are all top notch.

The staff is always friendly and helpful. The course is pretty open with limited tree exposure and overall conditions were great. The greens are very undulated following the update to the course and that will bother some players. You really need a strong short game to score effectively. This was a weekday round and the pace of play was excellent.

This is my first time playing here. Very friendly staff beginning with the valet/bag drop off when you first pull up. Club house is beautiful and the pro shop is nicely stocked.

As part of the price, range balls are included. I was not impressed with the practice range, they had us hitting off mats and only about a half dozen of them had balls to use. The range itself was nice, plenty of targets out there for all your shots. I'm sure this isn't usually the norm given the practice area was full of grass divots so I'm not going to dwell on the mat thing. They had a really nice chipping area and putting green.

Course layout was really nice in my opinion, made the course fairly challenging. The tee boxes were consistent in appearance for the most part with a few that needed to be mowed a little.

Fairways were in good shape and the rough was easy to hit out of. Both fairway bunkers and those around the greens were in good condition. Sand was not fluffy but it was predicable.

Greens are in very good shape, a lot of undulation in them (understand many had been redone and undulation was added as part of the new greens). I was ok with the different breaks in the greens, I'm used to that from playing up in New England.

They had a nice snack bar and the beverage cart came around at a good frequency. Golf carts were superb having GPS, a cooler, divot sand, towels, etc.

Very nice facility so for $49 through GolfNow, it was a fantastic deal given the quality of the course. I believe during peak season, fees are usually better than $125 for out-of-staters. Definitely recommend for all handicaps but the lower handicap players will really enjoy the course management thought process needed to score well.

Shingle Creek is a beautiful, challenging course, however the pace of play was extremely slow and the group ahead of us had people meandering and teaching each other how to play golf. Just not fair for the more experienced players to be behind them. Will come back just to hopefully finish the 18 holes without waiting 20 min per hole.
