This course was okay for the price

I drove down from Sarasota to play this course and met a friend who drive from North Fort Myers. All in all its not a bad course, it's wide open, and I didn't really find many problems with it, except for no rakes in the bunkers.

Better then expected

This course has a reputation, probably deserved, to be in bad condition. Not any more. My three playing partners all expressed concern when I set the tee time at Sable Trace. Any concerns were soon put aside. Greens were somewhat slow but not because they were in bad condition but because of the cut.

Vast Improvement

A group of us have been playing Sable Trace for several years now. The course at the present time is in the best shape I have ever seen or played it. The greens although slow compared to other courses in the area putt true. The weeds in the greens are a thing of the past. Great work by the course superintendent. Too bad the course is scheduled to close sometime this year for a complete make over. PLay it while you can, before the renovations and I suspect an increase in green fees. $25.00 with a cart after 12 o'clock.

Deal for the money

We did not like the fact that they paired us 2 up with 2 others. We didn't know that was the policy. The course was in the best shape in years

Water trees and bunkers come into play so hit it straight

Practice area and driving range were good and staff was friendly. The course was a good challenge. Fairways and greens were in good shape. The greens were moderate speed (played in afternoon) but were rolling true. We teed off at 1:35 and finished at 5:45. It was very enjoyable and I will play it again
