Strange stuff

Course conditions were good, no complaints. Here’s what was not good: lack of water,’ vending machines not working but no out or order signs. Cart girl says it never works. Why is it available to take money? Pin flags

all the same

and no way to know pin position. Starter said they ran out of green position cards a couple of weeks earlier.

Watch out for the pedestrians!

The person checking us in barely spoke nor did he give much instruction as to where to go. The starter was very friendly. He held us back until the group in front had cleared the tee but as we were ready to tee off along comes a nature walker on the cart path taking her time to pass and stopping and looking at the birds on the water beside the hole. It is a very narrow course and the fairways run beside the resort units. Some of the sidewalks are also close to the course and at one point we had to wait while a woman and two small children cleared the area. for fear of hitting them. At the end as we brought the cart back the employee who saw us pull in just got in another cart and took off without a word to us. Not a course we would return to.

Nice track. Requires marshalling.

Expensive for experience. Great venue, great course. Greens excellent for time of year. Very slow. Lots of high HCs playing as twosomes and players playing two balls??, 4-somes jumping in at #10?? Just a bit of marshalling could have improved things 100%. Players waiting too long for group in front expecting to hit their first 300 yd drive, only to put it in the woods! Signage could be better. Won't play again, not at that price.

Greens were fast and true. Fairways good. Lots of short par fours. A few quirky holes but they too were fun to play. Always enjoy my rounds here. Try this course for sure when in orlando.

Funny but not for real

The course is ok to play but it is not a real golf course. It is a nice training course.

Reserve Course

Played this course several times and it is a fun course to play, Challenging holes but forgiving enough that everyone can score well. Condition in places was odd in that big squares of turf has been cut out the fairway answer the first two holes were surprisingly wet !

For the $27 dollars paid, this was a great day out.

Will definitely go back again

great course open and wide

the course has friendly wide open fairways. the pace of play was very quick since there were not a lot of golfers out do to the inclement weather. it was a bit windy nothing overbearing though. the greens are large enough. we had a great day and the food for lunch was also very good.

Nice laid out course

We played this course on a very quiet day. The greens were a nice true roll although a little slow for my liking. Due to the rain the night before some wet areas but not a big problem. We completed our round in under 3 hours so a good pace of play. I don’t know what is going on in Florida but nowhere seems to have gps on the carts any more !! I wish I had brought my Bushnel with me as working yardage’s out wasted time pacing it out from the fairway markers !!

I would play here again a fun course that was not overly difficult but still a test.

Don’t waste your money

Overall horrible experience. Show up to the course, guy in shop acted like he would rather be at the dentist. Asked for range balls, this is when we find out range is closed. Then he tells us it’s cart path only. I asked if there would be a beverage cart on the course, dude replies “probably”. Nope no beverage cart. Had to skip group in front of us because it was obviously 1st time on a golf course. Wearing swimming trunks and tank tops. Unbelievable. It’s a shame because it’s a cool little track where your iron game is tested.

Good Challenge

Great course in a nice setting, fairways and greens in good condition. Nice design with some challenging holes which make you think and offer risk/ reward decisions. Lots of water/trees so if you are wayward, take plenty of golf balls!

Challenging layout. New management has brought course back from the brink. Fun to play and close to Disney.
