Excellent staff, worked with us to delay our time when the airlines delivered my clubs several hours late. Thank you Austin and company, you all are the best! Course was open, in decent shape, fast pace of play and the greens were way better than some of the reviews on the internet. I would definitely come back!

My wife and I visit Kissimmee in March and November every year. We have been playing Kissimmee Bay for 25 years.

The course has improved since March, tees are much better, the fairways have been over seeded and the new grass is coming in very nicely, probably thanks to recent wet weather. Bunkers were very well raked which is a noticeable improvement. Greens are also noticeably better than they were in March. Gas carts are much more reliable than previous electric carts.

We played on a beautiful Sunday afternoon teeing off at 11:52 Using GolfNow. Course was virtually empty and we played in 3 hours 10 minutes which is very enjoyable.

As mentioned in my previous review, this is an interesting course with plenty of water, huge trees and lots of wildlife including alligators. There are some great golf holes here, particularly #1 and #9.

They have recently added Silver tees which I played and enjoyed very much. Great improvement. My wife plays the Reds and enjoys the course as she hits them straight.

They need a sign to direct newcomers to #10 tee, we are frequently helping people get to that tee.

I rate this 4 * due to great price, speed of play & quality of course. There are a few rough edges but for the price it is very good value especially if you are playing 3-4 times a week like we do.

I played this course many years ago when it was a top venue. Sadly on our return it was clear the course has been neglected, demonstrated by poor greens and bunkers. It is a great layout and still has the potential to return to its former glory and I wish the new management company every success in their efforts to achieve this. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.

First time played course and disappointed. Course in slightly better condition than Remington but requires a lot of work, bunkers also poor. Course markings of where to go for next tee non existent, we had to ask a resident where to go for next hole!

We have always like the layout but the greens were spotty with lots of weeds etc growing in them. VERY slow and bumpy. Needs work here. Birds and alligators added to our experience.

The course conditions are by far the worst I have ever seen. People should be paid to have to put up with how bad the greens are. If you don’t enjoy golf in any way please play here. I don’t expect much out of public courses like this, but there are several nearby that are at least playable. I really just don’t know how the greens could be so bad. There is more crab grass and dirt than there is actual green grass.

Course was in decent condition but needed some more accurate yardage markers. It also could use some directional markers when you finish some of the holes not sure which way to go. Not enough to stop me from returning though.

Course is getting better as the fairways are in good shape, bunkers are soft but need continued attention, greens are in good shape but slow. Superintendent is doing the best he can with what he has to work with.

Course amenities is fair in that in the morning there is no snack bar available, coffee and drinks are but that is all as at the present time only one person staff is available to check guests in.

Course layout was good, and tee to green condition was ok but only considering the hurricane and extreme wet weather. Greens were appalling, with crab grass, bare spots and no recent rolling, making true putting impossible. Sand traps were full of crabgrass. Sorry, but off the list at any price.
