This was a great course. The staff was friendly and the conditions were great. Accuracy is a must as even the fairways off of the tee box were difficult to navigate. Very deceptive. The course is in great shape, but is challenging.

we played this course on 6/25/2018. I was over all satisfied with the course. it was well kept and maintained. wide fairways, loved hole 18. think the turtles are enjoying my pink balls. lol. the greens were great.. still going through their transitions on a couple. not a biggy. great layout. I look forward to playing here again. hopefully it wont be that hot. heat index was 106. the staff was friendly and very helpful. too bad the restaurant was closed. :(

Course is always in good shape. They are punching the greens tomorrow. Played both Saturday and Sunday.

The owners should be ecstatic over how good the weekend crew they have are. The man in the pro shop greets me by name is always pleasant and very friendly. The starter is always friendly and engaging, a great guy. The rangers are present friendly and unobtrusive. The cart man is a gentleman. This has quickly become my wife’s and I’s Favorite course we have played around 10 or so times in the last couple of months. Very acomadateing should be the standered for courses everywhere.

Arrived at 11 a.m. to sunny skies and by 12:45 we were drenched. The greens and fairways weren't in the best condition as they had been ariated a few days before. What more can be said, we've had a couple of very wet months.

After considering the most recent reviews which were pretty much a mixed bag, I almost didn't get a Golfnow deal to come play here on my way to Tampa. I am glad I didn't put much stock on the negative reviews because this course, for the money that I paid to play, is very good. The front nine was awesome; great layout and conditions were good. The back nine not as good condition wise as the front, but more than playable and inspires and requires good golf to navigate. Staff was super friendly and easy-going. Glad I came to play and will again next year as I make my way from Durham to Tampa.

Fast, true greens, well kept fairways, enough woods and other little tests to keep things interesting - this is a favorite course for our "Sunday Fun Day Golf Crew!".

We play every Sunday around Ocala. We do a different course each week, but this one is on our list for repetitive play, usually about every second month.

Come try it - you'll like it. The restaurant is also really good for a beer and lunch.

Just please don't take our tee times on Sunday morning.

Fun course, great layout, hilly. Back nine was very well layed out and fun. Course overall was in really good shape, Water only on 17 and 18 which kept the ball count low as if a hit strayed of line it was easy to find in trimmed up trees. Houses were all very far away from course so it seemed more natural than a typical Florida housing community course. I would recommend it to anyone of all skill levels.
