Golf course was in good shape. Love the look of brown rough with green fairways and greens. Being season, the driving/practice facilities were packed, and we were put with a coed twosome which slowed down our pace of play.

Greens rolled good, front of greens were cut tight.

Starting off our tee time was a joke... Got off 40 minutes after the time and waited on each hole. No marshal on the course. When we made the turn a man and his son evidently got tired of waiting on the 1st tee box and jumped on 10 (close to first tee) while we were getting a beer. Even when we asked him to leave he wouldn't and no marshal to help out. Finished at dark and club house locked so could not get to a bathroom.

Booked 18 holes and after arriving at the course found out that play was exceptionally slow and that the lady in the pro shop had booked a group on the wrong date and they added another foursome in directly in front of us on a day when play was exceptionally slow. Found out from the starter that this lady had mis-booked several times like this in the recent past. Greens are terrible and the course will be closed June through to September to redo all the greens. We would strongly encourage you to skip this course until next fall.

So many courses to choose from in the area. Teed off at 1:05... 2 people... left after the 15th at 5:30...pace was brutally slow and ranger offered no apologies- claimed that a shotgun start for a tournament was the cause. Waste of money and time. Saw the beverage cart once, on the 3rd hole. When we returned to the clubhouse, no one assisted with clubs or even acknowledged us. Definitely won’t play there again.

Played the course once in Nov and was soooo disappointed in the greens - they were AWFUL. I love the course layout and am very happy to report the greens are much improved - not perfect but now for sure playable. The course layout is superb and you get shots and views here that I've not seen on any other FL golf course.
