Love this place

Everything about University Park is top notch. Staff, grounds, facilities, organization, layout, course conditions. My only gripe is the pace of play. I left today after 12 holes which was painful because I love this course so much but the pace of play was horrific and there was no ranger to move groups along. It’s such a common problem yet most courses are afraid to upset their customers by monitoring their pace. It’s a shame. It’s an epidemic that needs to be addressed.

A must play

As close to a country club experience without being a member. Pristine fairways and greens, however the greens were slow, likely to protect from the relentless summer heat.

Great course

I’ve played this course many times and it’s in great shape. The greens could be a little faster, but overall very nice. No hidden surprises here. Generous fairways..especially on the last 9. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th holes on the last nine is one of the toughest 3-hole stretches of golf in the area. They play very long when hitting from the black or emerald tees. The last nine is also the longest of the 3, but has the widest fairways.

Great Round

Fantastic course and an even better value thru Golfnow. Course was in great shape and the staff was very friendly. The practice range was what you would expect at a private club with unlimited balls included. I live on two private courses, one of which hosts a senior PGA Major Championship and this course was on par with the ones I’m used to playing.

My favourite golf experience in this area

I always anticipate my round at University Park will be very good: it always exceeds that expectation.

The professional set-up here always impresses. From the moment you arrive you are treated courteously by staff members and you cannot fail to be impressed by the buildings and facilities. The various practice areas enable you to warm up effectively, whether with driver and woods/irons, chipping or putting.

There are three nines and I was happy with the selection: middle and then front. The course was in excellent shape, from tidy tee boxes, well-kept fairways and excellent greens. All sand-traps were immaculate.

With all this going for it, I was pleased to play and score well and I did not let the course down!

Every vacation here includes beaches, shopping and dining and at least one round at University Park.

Two different 9’s and both awesome

Played this course for the first time. Played 19-27 then 1-9. Both 9’s were unique and in very good condition. 1-9

Greens had been recently punched but not bad at all.

Staff very friendly and provided great service. Course in great condition. 4-5 tee boxes and greens were large.

Would recommend to play again!

Hidden Gem

This was my second time playing there and it played as well as the first time, the course is in great shape from tee to green, the greens are slow like 87 south going to a Yankees game, that is the one knock I can give the course. The layout is inviting although there is no wow factor to the layout, I have only played 1-18 both times, hopefully I can play the other 9 soon. The starter Sunday morning seemed to think that letting our twosome out early was going to back the entire course up 15mins, news alert buddy, the nice little older women in front of us did that and of course there was no ranger on the course. We did see the cart girl a few times, which was great as it was very hot. All in all my experience at the course has been pleasant and I do endorse university as a must play.
