Having a confirmed tee time doesn't mean you will get to play it

I arrived 35 minutes early to check in and I was told that I got bumped from the Old Orange course to the Whispering Oak course, since the 3 members that I was paired with wanted to go out as their own group. I told them that I was here to play the Old Orange course because I was told that it was the better course. The person in the pro shop said that both courses are the same and if I wanted to play the Old Orange then the next available tee time was about 2 hours later. My confirmed tee time was at 10:48 am. If it wasn't for the fact that Golfnow already charged me for a portion of the green fees online, I would have left and gone to play another golf course. This is clearly a case of bait and switch. By the way, there is a difference between Old Orange and Whispering Oak. Old Orange is a better and nicer course eventhough I did not get to play it. Other members confirmed it and the Golfnow website shows it. One is a 5 and the other is a 4.

Great experience

Enjoyed the entire day Practice facilities were great and well serviced

Course was very fair. Played well enough to step back to the tips where the holes took on an entirely new look

Greens were top dressed and cost me a couple strokes but happy to see the course is well manicured

Highly recommended

Excellent facility. The course is fair for all level of players. The pace of play was wonderful under 4 hours.

Suggest if you have an opportunity to play this course that you take it.

Miserable Round Due to Members

I will be clear, this review is more about the 4 ladies playing in front of me than anything else. The course is in great shape overall. A couple of the greens had to be sanded in spots but still ran true.

I was a single teeing off at 11:24a. On the range it it was "good ole boys" club which made it a great atmosphere and personally some where I would entertain joining as it was my first time here. Clearly it was a regular group outing and all foursomes. This is why I went to the tee a little earlier so I could get out in front. Teed off around 11:15a and no one was on the first hole. I did catch up to a foursome who immediately let me play through on the par 3 second hole.

This is where it all turned, I catch up to a foursome of ladies on three green and not once did they even make eye contact with me the rest of the round. I'd be sitting on the tee box before they even hit a shot and zero common courtesy was extended. Had it not been my first time playing nor having a good round going I would have skipped a hole to pass. As a single, took me 4 hours to play.

Not done yet, I pull up to the cart guys to return the cart and gather my things, the four ladies are laughing about how they would not let me play through. One so much as saw me pull up and went to the cart guy, "whatever he can wah wah wah all he wants" then looks at me and smiles. Took me A LOT to not snap back but I did keep in mind that I was a guest here and clearly they feel that being a member common courtesy and etiquette can go out the window.

I cannot completely blame the club for their members' actions but maybe don't post tee times when clearly the members want nothing to do with GolfNow commoners.

Best golf course in the area.

Thisis by far, the best layout and challenge for golfers on different levels.

6 tee boxes and a great lay out, can’t wait to come back. Try this one, you will be overwhelmed.

Also try Planatation in Fort Myers, also driven by Hampton Golf and in even better shape.

Seasonal Renter (3 months) at Verandah

Having played and thoroughly enjoyed the two courses at Verandah in past years we decided to rent for the season and play both Old Orange and Whispering Oak frequently! The two courses are very different with Old Orange challenging the golfer off the tee and being more friendlier on the greens, while the Whispering Oak course is the reverse. The quality of the Pro Shop / Back Shop staff is high and we've thoroughly enjoyed our first month (20+ rounds) and look forward to the next two!!
