Overpriced for an average course

I paid 59 plus tax for a course that needs a lot of work.The tee boxes are uneven with scetchey grass spots.The fairways are in places bare and hard.The greens are acceptable and probably the best part of the course.It should be a 39 dollar course at best.

Poor poor poor

We arrived at 11:15, our tee time was 12:15 ..
We went in to pay, two lady's that didnt know how to run the computers, finally 20 min.later got our monies for the round, said we get lunch and drinks..we didnt get a cart yet, so we had to carry our bags to the driving range, which we paid $10 for balls , but no room to hit them..
Finally got a cart at 12:10, was totally over booked, waited another 20 min. To tee off..so slow
Took us 5 hours and 20 min. For one round, and we are fast players..then we finish , they tell us no lunch, kitchen closes at 4..no lne told us that..didnt honor suncoast card..
Never will I go back

Value--

Inexpensive...lunch included. Very slow play and course condition is fair at best. Greens are good, Roughs have many bare spots.

Wildlife abounds, as deer and numerous feathered birds are abundant.

A bit confusing but good value

There is no map of the hole on the cards or monuments . So you have no idea on the layout of the holes and where the hazards lay There are very few yardage marker. Course was in great shape for the price

Nothing Special

Lots of water but reasonably wide fairways. Greens were rather slow and bumpy compared to others on area. Cart girl disappeared on back 9. Better choices in area for same price

Ideal when you can’t go elsewhere

Very affordable, and very nice staff, and fair condition, but could be considered “old” and a bit rundown. Typically choose to play here when other courses are unavailable, whether booked or lots of rain (this course drains well and will be open when others are closed

First time here and we were surprised. Such a nice course, great value for the hot deal price. Got on top of it 2 free drinks with our round. No wait time at any tee box.The greens were in good condition but not very fast but challenging because of the pin position. Perfect round for us! We will come back!

Great Day @ Serenoa

Everything about this course, the staff and the price I paid was very good.
The only negative was the pace of play as it was somewhat slow.

Nice day on the golf course. Played with two guys from pa and had a good time. A little slow out there today but i guess that’s to be expected this time of the year. Good price ,good people ,good weather, what more can you ask for .

Poor management of course

Only one person to cope with receiving,cleaning and refilling gas to the buggies,Therefore did not have time to help
Load my Clubs into the buggy.
Not enough time elapsed between groups so much backing up of players leading to long waits between holes.
Course attendant did not seem to make any impact on slow players.

Greens too slow.Needed cutting & rolling.

Could be a great course with more investment in personel & course improvement.

Great layout/Awefull greens

I played the course today (1/3/19). Good layout, great staff, great (overseeded) fairways. The greens were terrible. The staff stated they leave the greens long because of the volume of players they get. I won’t be back to join those hoards. I’m a 7 handicap and have played all along the sun coast. Nobody else’s greens are this shaggy and unplayable. Too bad.

jcthomas,

Happy to see you were able to play Serenoa in the New Year. Yes the layout is fun, unique and challenging. On greens we do use the month of December to protect the newly grown in "overseed." It allows them to mature and gives us great conditions for the next 4-5 months by doing so. Today (1/4/18) we took the height of cut down on the greens to one step lower than you played yesterday. And we also take the height down at least twice more within the next week to 2 weeks I'm sure that for the next 4-5 months Serenoa will have great consistent greens - especially considering the lower temps & humidity (soon headed our way) combined with the lower heights of cut - that process makes the greens very smooth and very playable. Would look forward to seeing you again if you'll give us a chance to impress you.

Good round

Course staffing both the pro shop and restaurant were very friendly and accommodating. The course layout is challenging. The course is in good shape but the greens are long and a little slow. I would recommend playing the course and I will return this season.

hughesj1102,

So glad to see that you enjoyed your round at Serenoa and that the staff (and the course) treated you well! Not a surprise - Serenoa Staff are a great group of dedicated folks and the course is a gem as well. The greens are now matured in - with nice green overseeding which allows us to enjoy great greens and lush fairways for the next 4-5 months. We lowered the height of cut today (1/4/18) and will lower them again within a week. Lower temps & humidity (soon headed our way) will help the process of making them smooth and consistently playable for several months. Thanks again.

Fivesome Allowed ????

We played Serenoa today and enjoyed our round. However notwithstanding we were very surprised that a 5 ( yes five players) were allowed to play in front of us which to be frank held up play for us and others.
We mentioned this to a Course Ranger who advised that they were regular players whatever that constitutes?
At 9th hole there is a sign saying that players cannot go to clubhouse for a drink / food. However, this fivesome did just that and despite us going directly to 10th tee in front of them they did not have courtesy to allow us ie a two ball to let us go in front of them. The fivesome held us up and others behind us.
We would sincerely question why a fivesome is allowed at Serenoa ?
Respectfully submitted,

Rough

This course needs a lot of work.
The greens were like putting on shag carpet and I got attacked by fire ants just standing off to the side of the tee boxes
