Only one complaint about this course-Please provide the golfer with some course information!! Outside of the 150 pole, the yardage was barely marked. There were signs on the cart path at times but you couldn't really see them from the fairway. More importantly-GIVE SOME INFORMATION ON SOME FORCED CARRIES! There was a hole on the front 9 that had a visible creek, but no clue how far to carry. Another hole on the back had a creek that you can't see at all. I hit a great shot that wound up in the hazard-wish I knew it was there and how far away it was.

On to the good stuff!

The staff was great! Everyone was very pleasant. I saw a complaint about staff friendliness in a previous review so they must've solved that problem. Particularly the bar staff at lunch. Forgot their names but both super friendly.

Value-I thought it was a terrific price considering they give you a good breakfast, lunch AND a beer.

Course condition-I didn't want to downgrade the course based on condition because I'm starting to find out that its pretty typical for all courses around here this time of year to not be tip top. While not excellent-this course was in better shape than the other 4 we played at the same price point. The tees were decent-some needed some work. Fairways were punched recently-no big deal, they played nice. Greens were terrific on the front nine...got a little splotchy and slower on the back.

All in all, wonderful experience, lots of scenic views and wildlife and the course isn't very tough. Will definitely be back and will be happy to pay $30-$40 in the current condition and when things dry up and the weather cools off, I know it will be in better shape and I'll happily pay more.

I played this course yesterday with two family members. Even though we had a tee time, we were told to begin play when we wanted. Unfortunately, there was a group of 5 that went out in front of us. We were waiting on them from the moment we started playing. When we came to the first par 3, we expected them to let us play through. They did not. When we came to the second par 3, again, they did not let us play through.

At this point we were frustrated, so we skipped a hole to get in front of them. No one was in front of us, so we played at a good pace until we finished. This group of 5 should have been split into a group of 2 and a group of 3. Better management of golf groups would have prevented this problem. If a group of 5 is allowed to play, management should emphasize practicing golf etiquette for those playing behind them.

Golf etiquette is like common sense - everyone talks about it but very few practice it. These over-sized, slow groups really don't give a toot for anybody behind them. Too bad - they give the course a bad name!

Front nine recently aerated still filling in. Back nine in good shape. Deer everywhere. Tee boxes on some holes need help. Fairways don’t run out. Good layout. Very enjoyable round. My son and I didn’t wait at all. Finished in 3 hrs. Very friendly staff. All in all super happy.

Liked the layout. Several target holes that made you think before you swung your club. Greens had a number of old hole locations that needed to be repaired. Givin the recent tropical storm , the course was still very playable. I will play there again.

The course Monday was cart path only and we started on 10. Sort of threw off my habits but as always the course was ready to play. KC in the pro shop was as friendly as ever and the lunch was perfect. The burgers are as good as any burger joint. The greens were rolling great as always and the fairways were accepting my aweful shots. Still scored an 88 and I will return again and again.

I would recommend the diamond in the rough for any level of golfer.

For an older course it was in good shape. Water on 17 of 18 holes, the housing is well away from the course, and there were several challenging holes.

Lots of positives about this course, very few negatives. Gas powered carts and no GPS were somewhat surprising for the area. Some of the tee boxes were dry/worn, but it is the dry season. Greens were a bit inconsistent. Doglegs and water across fairways made it interesting. Pace was excellent till we got to the last 4 holes. Liked the food from the food cart, and the complementary beverage was a huge plus.

Be aware the wildlife is abundant, and the birds are stealthy , AGGRESSIVE thieves. The lakeside deck at the 19th is as nice as I have ever experienced. I can't wait to return, overall great experience!

Our group has played Serenoa every Monday and Thursday since November 1 this course has only gotten better with play. The staff cannot be any more friendlier the free lunch and beer does not even seem possible .

The greens are always in great shape the fairway still are green and lush I still haven’t figured out how to play number five yet but hopefully before season ends I’ll have it mastered great job Serenoa, keep it up.

Say hi to Ron the starter and don’t forget to tip you cart girl and the restaurant staff. They keep the food coming and the beer pouring.

As the busy season begins to wind down in southern west coast Florida I cannot believe our group found such an awesome course. Anyone who complains about the greens or fairways hasn't played much in southern Florida. The staff in the pro shop are the friendliest in town. They are always willing to help you with your golf swing or just listen to your stories.

The course is still in excellent condition considering we haven't had any significant rain for over 30 days. Sure there are some brown spots. But have you been to Bobby Jones recently?

The greens still roll true and the fairways are green and soft.

Keep up the great work Serenoa. We will return again and again.
