Golden Course

Great course in the Ocala area. There are several signature holes that replicate 12, 13, 16 from Augusta. 1 & 17 from St Andrews. Royal Troon and Baltusrol. I can appreciate the landscaping evolve as the holes change to mimic the original holes. Flow of the round was at points challenging due to the ever changing design of the course. Overall, well done. I would recommend the course to others.

Nothing Out of Place

I am fortunate to be a Member here since they have gone Private. The owners have spared virtually no expense to insure a quality experience. The Pro Shop staff is the best I have ever encountered(thanks Mike & Nick), and the Grill room staff super friendly. The best replica holes in the Country in my opinion. Conditions super including fast(but not stupid fast) greens with character(Thanks Jack).

The replica holes are great but the other holes have character also i.e., the 1st requires a slight draw to avoid waste area on the right, and then a high soft shot to hold an extremely well protected green. Great finishing hole on 18 where the long hitters have a great risk/reward opportunity and plenty of others in between.
Difficult to get on without a Member but there are plenty of options off season to play in charity events of Regional Tournaments. You can also volunteer for the LPGA Event in early February and last year they gave a round to the volunteers. They also have a limited number of "Stay and Plays" available both in and out of Season.

A first class operation....

A fun afternoon

Had played here about 12 years ago but it was much, much better than I remembered.

For starters, the course was in great shape and the greens were pure. There are eight holes that are recreated from some of the most famous places in golf - including the 12th at Augusta National, the Road Hole at St. Andrews, etc.

Now, the recreated holes are neat and standing on the tee box of each you can tell exactly which hole it mimics, but it does make for an interesting, uneven flow to the routing. That's not a big deal with me, but it may be for others who are more particular.

I liked it. Would play there again any day.
