Fun track. If you don't keep the ball in the short grass, you'll be heavily punished by horrible lies. Greens rolled better then they looked.
It's place to play golf. Better than your backyard but not by much. Was truly shocked to see how much that place fell off.
The front fairways looked like the backyard of an abandoned house. You should definitely play the back 9 2x. Back 9 is 300% better than the front.
But it was only $10.
The only reason I say it's okay is because of the price. 14$ for 18 holes. The fairways were terrible. The greens were sandy. Tee boxes had normal height of grass in my backyard. I mean but you get what you pay for.
Just a practice round for Sunday .....inexpebsive
The course is playable but has seen much better days as posted in my review last week. The staff is very nice and pace of play is great. The course I understand is shutting down in September for a much needed make over. Looking forward to seeing how it works out.
Worse to Worst
I have played here from 1980 to the present. It used to be a must play course. The course has eroded to the worst condition I have ever seen. I hear of big renovation plans but no timetable. The last year the course has become awful. I play here when I'm broke or a last minute decision. I do hope they make their plan come to fruition. Until then I have too many other choices to bother.
My day at Mount Dora Country Club
I had an excellent day. Course was in very good condition. I will certainly play this course again. Staff was very friendly.
really upset with the desk check in person
We played again today..we are regulars here and have played here many times. We had a foursome and my friend , in town for the weekend. had his 13 yr old son with him. (not playing) the guy charged him $20 for his son to ride along with us. IS this your policy?? The course was NOT busy at all...We had problems with this same guy before about other things. My friend has played with us several times before WITHOUT a problem and now we get this. He was so mad he wanted to leave. Unless he gets a refund, we all have said this will be the LAST time we will play. But, I know it doesn't matter to you... just wanted to let you know.
I'm sure this is the same guy that charged my friend who is handicapped to ride along with me. Absolutely Absurd.
Great layout/Payment issues
Great layout...some really beautiful holes. The course has fallen into disrepair as they prepare for a one year renovation. The information from Golf Now regarding the amount I was to pay at the course was incorrect. I had to pay an extra few bucks at the course for "tax". Golf Now needs to correct that information.
The course condition was poor.
I was very disappointed in the condition of the course. It is apparent that the owner has decided not to maintain the course prior to shutting it down in October to change the layout. We only got in 6 holes before the rain started again for the second time. Due to the course conditions, we did not bother to ask for a rain check. We would not have booked the tee time if we were aware of the conditions.
They are supposed to close the course down in September and it looks like they're letting it go
Played here many times, first time in maybe 6-7 months and the greens are in horrendous shape. We didn't even bother to finish our round. Surprised they were so beaten up with all of the rain we've been getting. They just must have let the place go. A shame too.... I loved playing here.
I and all of my golf buddies have been playing here for years. (some time, 2 or 3 times a week) Enjoy the lay out and fun to play but even from the white tee box, some of the holes are too long for our level of play. Hole #2 (par 4) needs another tee box. No chance of getting to the green in two. #9 and #10 are the same. All the other holes are a challenge but fun. Also, would be nice to have red,white, blue flags?? We only know what we hear about closing the course and the new work coming... but several times we have heard when re open the rates will change. It seems (if true?) we will be priced out of playing here. We have 8 guys in our little group and we would hate not to be able to play here any more. How about a news letter to let us know the latest?
APOPKA GOFL AND TENNIS
I love this course, with its ups and downs, and hidden fairways and greens. That being said, what I don't like is the current condition of the greens. I know the weather has been problematic lately but surely they can do better than what exists there currently. Brown splotches all over the greens and hardly a smooth rolling surface anywhere. Fairways were fine and I'll go back when the greens improve but not even another free lunch and an under $20 rate will pull me back. Oh, the lunch was a hot dog and beverage, which could be a draft beer. Not worth the drive right now.
Contrary to some recent Polyana reviews the course has deteriorated in the last two months to mostly dirt/mud greens and dirt fairways. The course was lush green two months ago and now resembles a dirt race track. Grass is lost and weeds and dirt have taken over. Pitiful.
Love the layout! Conditions need a little work.
Hills are something you don't deal with much when it comes to golf courses in Central Florida. I happen to love hills, and Errol did NOT disappoint. There were several elevated tees where you were teeing off down some very significant hills, and a few where you were teeing off uphill.
Most of the course is surrounded by some very nice homes and apartments, which I found to also be inviting.
Crabgrass is a problem on the fairways, however, and the greens all the way around the course are in some pretty rough shape. They did say that they were "making a transition from winter grass to summer grass" on the golf carts, though. Not sure exactly what that means, but OK. The course is laid out so impressively (at least to me) that I'll be back. I shot one of my better games on this course, so apparently the weeds and greens weren't TOO much of an issue. My playing partner and I did have to incorporate a "rule" where if we hit our ball on the fairway, and it landed in some of that crabgrass, we could move the ball to the closest clean spot and play it from there.
I've read some people reviewing this course talking about how the staff wasn't courteous to GolfNow members. In my experience, that couldn't be further from the truth. Everybody I dealt with out there was very extremely nice to me.
Conditions could be better
The front nine was in pretty rough condition, with crab grass all over the fairways (especially the first hole). Greens were very slow. Back nine was in significantly better condition.
Staff was very friendly and the layout was good. Will come back once the course is in better condition
2nd time I booked on golf now and 2nd time I was overcharged for my round. Course was in ok shape lots of weeds and bare spots. Also had a 7:58 and they said no it was 8:15 starter was pretty rude when I bought it up do him. Ok if I want to play another round close to home I'll head to Zellwood!!
