Possibly the best I have ever played.

I have played golf for over 30yrs and the Hills course is one of the best I have ever played.
There was nothing I could fault from the welcome at bag drop throughout the whole staff.
Food was excellent.
Course is not easy but if you play well you are rewarded .
Spectacular scenery, pristine greens and tees.
A bit of a drive from Orlando but well worth it ,but a must play if in Daytona or in the area.

We thourougly enjoyed the course but we didn’t understand why the Marshall approached us on the 15th hole that we were impacting the pace of play...we completed our game in 4 hours Hills Course.

not what I booked

My wife and I were to play at 2:21. That is what I booked through your service. I get there and the LPGA staff changed my tee time to 2:39. They put 3 foursomes in ahead of us. These guys thought they were pros and were about as slow as I have ever seen. We played 2 holes and asked for a refund.

fORCED CARRIES

A challenging but fun experience again. Choose your tees wisely as there are some 180 yard carries from the White tees. Fairways are generous, good tee boxes, and decent greens. Greens had a few blemishes but overall very satisfactory. A very professional and friendly staff including the bag boys, pro shop staff, cart girl, and marshal. Will definitely play again. Thanks for the treat as this is by far the best course we have played in the area.

Hands down, best layout in the area, PERIOD

I love this course. It is challenging as heck, but alot of fun to play. It's LPGA Int'l so it's always in good condition (certainly not pristine, but really solid. Consistent). If you're a 20 or higher, you will want to stick with the Jones course as this course will eat you and your golf balls for lunch. Many holes you have to clear alot of swamp land to hit your target and if you miss it, well....you'll never see your ball again. Somehow I managed to finish the round with my original ball, so that's good. I cannot wait to play it again,. In fact, I loved it so much that I just may join. PLAY THIS COURSE if you haven't yet played it. You will not be disappointed. But again, and I stress, if you're a 20 or above and struggle to keep the ball in play, then play the Jones course (which is great too!).

Fantastic

I don’t know how all these other dog tracks can score four’s, but this course is clearly a 5 star, the best in the area. Played the Hills course, conditions were excellent, pace of play fantastic (teed of at 2:45) off the course by 6. Staff was excellent. Only negative was the putting green speeds were much quicker than the actual course greens.

Beautiful course but peace of play was terrible.

Twice during the round, we told the course marshall that two foursomes had everything jammed up. When we talked to him the first time, there were 4 groups on one hole. The second was just as bad. We waited sometimes for 10 minutes between shots. Two groups finally gave up and quit, one after 9 holes and the other after 16. Pretty pathetic...especially since we were told these slow groups were "members". Too frustrating to ever return despite the beautiful course.

Fabulous course

Great course, always in great condition. Greens are quick and smooth. Hills course was very wet from 3 inches of rain the day before and cart path only. This is a tree lined narrower course than the Jones course. Very challenging and requires thinking about shot placement but still playable for all skill levels.
