Overall good experience. Course conditions were ok. Nothing is really in great shape this time of year in Florida during the rain season, but still could have been better.

We enjoyed the course and will keep it on the list to play again! It had rained quite a bit the days prior to our round however, so there was a lot of standing water and squishy spots, and had to keep the carts on the cart paths only. That was understandable given the conditions, but the grass was a bit longer too which made it difficult to find your ball. But it was a beautiful, hot, humid sunny day and its always fun to be golfing, so we're not complaining. Saw a few alligators too which is always exciting!

This course is owned and managed by the owners. They have hired individuals to take care of the Course and the Pro Shop. Atmosphere is Friendly and inviting.

The Greens were excellent and the fairways were adequately taken care of. The course is hindered by geographic location. There are no hills or interesting topography. Also, the course is very compact. It is an Excellent course to learn and refine your shots. There is Pride in Ownership. that is Nice to experience.

We had heard varying reports on this course from friends over the years, so weren’t sure what to expect.

We were pleasantly surprised, we really enjoyed the round, and conditions were very good, especially since the area had heavy rain for awhile.

Greens were great, and staff was fabulous.

Tee time was 9:32. We couldn’t tee off till after 10 due to the league guys making the turn. The starter had a bad attitude after we suggested to send us as 2 golfers out before 5 groups of 4. The ranger then followed us instead of doing his job keeping pace of play. 10 min wait or more every hole is unacceptable. I was also over charged on my debit card by the course. Nice course and the rates are fair. I will play another course next round.

Fun layout as the course is carved out of the Florida wilderness. Recent heavy rains have caused the sand traps to need considerable work. Greens were a little slow as I’m sure the heavy rains had an effect.

The tee boxes were beat up , just move the markers where the grass was growing. The greens ok but some were slow & bumpy,. We thought newer greens would be better. The bunkers had water in them and that was before the rains. It might be good for beginners but not good players. The real 4 and 5 star courses in the area are Sarasota National and Riverwood to name a few. I guess the people who rated this course so high have never played those courses or are friends of the owners. Our foursome will not return the only reason we did after several years was we heard new greens and the course was in good shape according to the reviews. Wow , wrong on the good shape & greens!
