This course was very good value for the price paid . The greens were in good condition, average speed, able to hold approach shots. We have played this course for the last couple of years while visiting the area.

There is definitely a theme of continuous improvement on and off the course.

The course was not in good shape. Tee boxes were beat up, sand traps not raked, greens had many blemishes, and the fairways were missing grass in many places.

Looks like it was a nice course at one time, but needs someone to fix it up.

I had heard this club was under new management and course conditions were slowly improving from previous neglect.

The greens had just been top-dressed and most weren't brushed in yet, they were in the process of brushing them during my round. Neither Golfnow nor the pro shop had mentioned the greens being top-dressed so I was a little disappointed at discovering that on the first tee. Needless to say, I can't comment on the conditions of the greens since my group was putting through a lot of sand.

The fairways were decent but could use some improvement as well. Rough had some dry spots but it was easy to hit out. Traps varied as far as conditions. Some had some pretty heavy sand and others were a little more fluffy. Overall both fairway and green side bunkers were decent enough. The part of the course that probably needs more immediate attention are the tee boxes, especially when it came to playing the par 3s since there was a lack of decent grass to hit from.

The practice facility is pretty good, it's a big pond with little islands to aim at. Ironically, it seemed like the range balls were normal balls, not the reduced flight and/or floating golf balls. Not sure how they retrieve range balls. The practice green had not been top-dressed like the course.

Overall experience was positive given the cost of the round. Once the top-dressing settles, I hope to come back and try it again, I think this course will could be 4-stars soon as management continues their improvements.

We have played 3 courses. Kissimmee Bay, The Oaks, and Providence. Kissimmee Bay is in a little better shape than the Oaks. Greens and traps in better shape than the Oaks. Both are interesting layouts.

Providence very comparable but way overpriced!

We are from out of country so with the exchange we wanted to play at affordable courses. This course was recommended and we would play 18 again. Lots of wildlife and the back 9 greens were in better condition than the front 9. We both got good scores so we liked the course.

Excellent Price through GolfNow Hot Deal.

Early morning tee time. Not busy at that time so felt like our own private course although a twosome did quickly pass through. Finished in well under 4 hours. Facilities kept very clean, and well organised. Both staff we encountered could not have been more engaging and informative. Tees, fairways and greens in decent shape, with signs of seasonal sparseness. Nothing worth grousing about particularly considering the price. All in all course management is to be commended.

Will be more enjoyable the second time. Many doglegs that need good placement off the tee or second shot is near impossible. Be back for sure as the payout reminds me of the older Ontario courses back home.
