Good golfing test

This course is designed to emphasize shot-making. There is a mixture of wide and narrow fairways along with well protected greens. If you do not know your yardage for each club of if you can not adjust for elevated greens, do not expect to score well. Heavy rains caused holes # 1 & 18 to be cart path only. Otherwise, the course is in very good condition.

Yes we will squeeze you in...

I love this course ...always have...I play a lot all over central Florida and North Georgia... and this is a gem. But since the Covid ...golf seems to be not only surviving but doing great ...as for this time of year(in the past), this coarse is rarely over booked...that being said...I understand for them to capitalize on this increased desire to play is important...but at who's cost...as the start had no starter...a bunch of people started piling up and right off the bat we were behind and led to slow paced round....at one point our 4 some had separated from the 4 some's behind us...as we like to be under 4 hours when possible...we play at a steady pace...I noticed someone with a Rangers Flag practicing on the hole behind us...maybe If he was the ranger...he could have been up front encouraging faster past in front...and obviously behind....On long HOT days 5 hour rounds are too much...and really not worth the drive....again...I love this course...but the last 3 times have been a bit too much...If you have a ranger...he doesn't have to be rude but a gentle nudge...would probably do the trick. And maybe a real starter...as there always seems to be confusion ...they do have you check in but no-one seems to take control and get everyone off on time...It should be my responsibility to ask the groups in front or behind their starting times...a..maybe an intercom with group names being announced.

Great experience

The course is very challenging but not unfair. The views and vistas are spectacular. We were told the greens had been aerated a week earlier but you couldn’t tell; they were in great shape, rolled true and were receptive to both approach and bunker shots. Accuracy is rewarded and never a crazy bounce. The signature island greens are spectacular. We will be back to enjoy this track. Should have taken more than one picture.

Beautiful Course

I played El Campenon and it was very enjoyable and memorable. Played during week early in morning so pace was fantastic, finished in 3:15. The layout is excellent with a nice mix of different holes, dogleg rights, lefts, uphill, downhill, long, medium, etc. holes and challenging par 3s. Thoroughly enjoyed the course and would highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

Great course, but was just aeriated

This will be a great course to play on. It had just been aeriated so the course condition was just fair. Give it a couple of weeks to heal and it will be superb.

Love playing this course

Second time playing this course. Great layout and conditions. Had the 1st tee time and the young gentleman met us at the car with a cart. Very friendly and professional. Went in to the clubhouse to pay and when we came out the older cart attendant was giving the younger gentleman grief because he was spending “too much time with the Early Birds and not pulling out carts”. The older gentleman can take some lessons from the young guy in customer service!
