Comfortable

Came to the course with time to dial in my putting and chipping, then head to the first tee. I played by myself for 18 holes and only saw one group and they let me play through. Greens had just been punched but still rolled pretty pure. Will definitely be going back.

All around good

We were a twosome following a five some but remArkably they kept pace so it was a four hr round. All grounds and greens were in great condition. Lots of water hazards! Most bunkers soft. Golf now showed course at about half committed the day before. But was pretty filled up, guessing that it’s public and maybe sawgrass players underway brought more action especiLly since they cancelled spectating due to virus precaution. On balance a good experience

Fun Afternoon

Had the course to ourselves, literally. We didn't see the guy ahead of us or the twosome behind us at all. Played in about 3 hours, 15 minutes. We even took our time with play. The greens are in great shape, fairways great and tee boxes are very good, a few were pretty worn. But overall, even with the crap score I turned in, we will be back next week to really tackle this course. For first timers, there are a few hidden hazards for penalties, but didn't deter from the beauty and pristine scenery. Even made friends with a hawk who watched us on 18.

Round of Golf

Played with a couple of great guys. Started off with only being able to hit off the mats could not hit off the grass. The greens were pretty slow and the course needs a little help. Golf at a ok course is still better then work any day.

Average but nice

Course was an average course. Good budget value. Conditions were ok. Fairways were decent, greens were good but some areas of the course were thin and missing grass all together. For the low price...it was worth it.

Thoroughly enjoyable

We were a foursome of average ability, senior golfers. Everything about our 18 hole golf experience more than met our expectations. Highly recommended. I do not understand the sometimes critical comments that appear on these evaluations as we had a completely enjoyable day regardless of scores that were not particularly good - certainly no fault of the course!
Be sure to play this course if you have the opportunity!

Don't play

Slow play, slow greens. Leftt after 14 holes,, as I drive in to clubhouse there were three full empty holes. There was a nice ranger out but that didn't help.

Fun course

The course is in really good shape for this time of year. The greens would hold all approach shots but they were very slow and hard to adjust to them.
