A great course

The course layout is phenominal. Mixture of short and long par 4’s that are fun to play. Fairways are hard and the ball runs a long way. There is a premium in being in the fairway. Bermuda greens are bumpy, well defined. It would be even better if there were rolled.

The only negative was the starter. We were a little late due to traffic coming in. He did not leave us with a good first impression. The rest of the staff were delightful and courteous. This course is fun to play!

Rough

The tee blocks,fairways are in good shape.the greens are being worked on and you need to stay in the fairway as the rough is terrible and short and hard to get your club under

Fast Pace

Was 5th tee time of the day our threesome had a three and a half round. Some greens had some fungus on them. Most holes had wide fairways. Had to pay attention to approach shots to greens. If you are not on the right side of the fairway getting on the green can be hard.

This course was our favorite among 10 we played. There was more elevation changes than any other. Orange trees for snacks all over the course.

Nice Course

Had a Hot Deal through Golf Now. Check in was easy. Played as a twosome, early t-time, so pace was great. Course was in very good shape. Big greens, in good condition, Lots of fairway undulations which gave the course some character, NO water hazards, which was a nice change from a lot of other courses I've played in the Orlando area. You will have to go out of your way to lose a ball on this course. Which leads to the only possible negative comment, that wayward shots aren't really penalized. I enjoyed playing the course, would play it again and recommend it.

Fun track

Course was right across from our resort, so we squeezed in a morning round before hitting the big name courses. Excellent pace early in the morning and a fun course, excellent greens and fairways, rough and waste areas had some issues but would play again if I was in the area.

From the pro shop staff to the starter to the cart crew and all else it was a great day. Course was in great shape and we played 36 in under 8 hours. Can't wait to come back!

Great Course

Course is overseeded with rye grass and that made play excellent. Felt like mid-summer conditions back north versus the dormant bermuda grass you usually have to play on in Florida in the winter. Greens were not only fast but very undulating, tiered, raised, false fronts.........you got to love it if you love golf. Very challenging but extremely fair. Bill the starter is funny (I called him Bill "Murray"). Great clothes deals. We'll play it again before we go home

Fun day

Pace was perfect, but we were 1st off. Played the tips, numerous blind shots adds to the challenge. Greens rolled well, not super lush but nice. I would play again.

Much Improved

I was skeptical, reading some of your previous reviews, but was impressed with the conditions of the course. The last time I played here, last year, it was a disaster. This time the greens were in good shape and fast, the fairways were a bit spotty but not bad, the rough was good. The waste areas were being power-raked, which was really needed. All in all, a very good round of golf on a course we used to love to play. We will be back.

Disappointed

The course was just OK. The greens were just fair. Too many of the holes showed evidence of overuse. (Edges were worn)The fairways need attention. The pace of play was way off. The ranger was not properly moving golfers along.My first impression of the course was not good. There was very little evidence of order. I don’t think I would play there again.

Good value!

Worth the drive from Orlando to play. Decent layout lots of room to hit the ball off the tee. Many rolling elevation changes throughout the course, overall fun to play. Course was in decent shape, fairways and rough pretty typical for winter Florida Golf, good greens, better than average condition.

I’ve seen it in better condition!

The pace of play was very slow. The greens were very slow and the grain dominated putts.
The fairways were in good shape due to a wet December. It has been in better condition.
