Great times!

Played with my nephew today. Super hot! Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Five stars is not high enough for today’s visit. Thank you for exceptional service. The greens had a few rough spots otherwise the course was in good shape.

Mercury Capped

A few tee boxes need some attention. Some bare, sandy spots on a couple of fairways. The greens were wonderful, rolled true, and smooth. Will play this course again later this week.

Course needs attention-Staff and layout good

Unfortunately the course conditions were not good. The tee boxes were barren , The fairway was like rough. The bunkers were weed infested. The greens were fine...just a little slow.

The layout is pretty good. Challenging par 3's , elevation changes , contour , some tree lined holes and elevated greens.

Gentleman at the front desk and starter were both fun, kind and helpful.

Course

The course is in Very poor condition I will not be returning there for the rest of summer. The price we had to play was to high for the condition the course was in. Lot of greens need work and the fair ways are in ruff shape. Pace of play was real slow with no ranger out there to help move things along. Driving range need cut and only two holes on putting green to practice. The course is not played as was earlier this year. Hope it gets better and know it will before fall when all Northern come down and then you can raise the price again and will not have to many regulars there to play.. I might be back and tell my friends if the course gets better,hope it dose we like playing there. Good Luck

Great course

This was a great course to play. Have to play smart and not hit driver off every tee. With good course management, you’ll be able to score really good

Over all conditions

Tee boxes were in poor condition. Some greens had bad spots. Pace of play was terrible, needed a ranger on course. Driving range need to be mowed and cleaned up.

Slow Play and Bare Spots

I always like playing HR. Can usually get around in 3 to 3.5 hours. Not this last time. Took us over 4.5 hours. No ranger to speed up the slow players.

Quite a few bare spots in the fairways and on some of the greens.

Still a fun course to play.

Oh No!!!

They changed the course - back 9 is the front 9 and we got a little thrown off at the second green, took the wrong path. Otherwise, we had a good day...I actually did good on the front 9...3 pars and one birdie - now the back wasn't as good but, I had an 84 for the day. We'll be back. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this course to everyone. It's been several months since we've played here, will be back!!

Course is coming around great

I’ve played this course on multiple occasions and you can tell that they are putting a lot of work into it and it is coming around beautifully. The greens were fast, the fairways had good roll to them and the staff were amazing as usual.
The only issue I have is the pace of play can occasionally get slow and there was no one on the course to keep people moving.
I highly Recommend playing this course if you’ve never played there before.

Staff great as always, fairways and rough filled in nicely. Tees some good some ok we tee it up anyway.

Great price and even got a free hot dog for booking online.

Disappointing for the experienced golfer

If you have played here in the past you know how beautiful it used to be! My father and I would come play every weekend, but it has gone WAY DOWN HILL!! Weeds covered the fairways, dirt for tee boxes, and you had to put through Daytona beach all over. It’s sad to think about what this once was. I would stay away because a lot of maintenance and money needs to be put into this course.

If you can play golf don't go here for a while

I haven't played here for 3 years and it will probably be at least 3 years before I think about going again. The greens were not to bad, the fairways were pretty poor and the tees almost devoid of grass - there were lots of weeds
With all the other choices locally I suggest you try somewhere else - it's a shame as its should be a fun course but it's just not up to scratch
