Always a pleasant round

Be aware that due to Covid-19 the water jugs and ball washer towels have been pulled, so make sure you have enough water with you before starting play. Seem to be trying to accommodate one player/one cart where possible. The recent dry, sunny spell predictably means some brown spots emerging, and very dry turf. Course was busy but pace of play was good.

Nice layout

This is a very nice course with a variety of some really good holes. Greens were a little slow, but rolled nicely. When you are in the Brooksville area give it a try, can’t beat the price on golf now. I think you’ll have a great time!

Our opinion

We found the course fairways not very good dried up and lots of weeds
The greens are nice in good condition
The starter made a big mistake by allowing a couple to play alone in front of us as this delayed the play very much
Took us over 4 & 1/2 hrs waiting on every hole
We will not be back unfortunately

Pretty tired course

Played with my wife and nephew. Fairways and bunkers are in pretty rough shape. Not much grass in the fairways and bunkers look unkept (and there are a lot of them). Tee boxes have some grass on them but are somewhat lumpy and uneven. We paid about $33 each for an early Saturday afternoon tee time so I guess I shouldn't have expected much more than what we got. The greens, for the most part, were in OK shape. I probably won't go back.

Course needs water

I play Silverthorn fairly often, and I enjoy the course...it has some very appealing holes, elevations, and overall, the layout is nicer than most local courses. The course has had heavy use this winter, and it’s showing. Few players seem to ever repair ball marks on the greens, which isn’t the fault of course management; it is, however, taking a real toll on many greens. The 18th green is literally cratered with ball marks, making an otherwise good line a roll of the dice. Fairways are getting very thin and need water, which I know is typical of the area in winter, but more often than not you’re playing very tight lies or off hardpan/sand. Fairways are being badly damaged by carts anywhere the paved cart paths end. Hopefully when rainy season arrives there’ll be relief on this point. Traps are generally well-tended and seem to have recently been replenished with sand. (Here again, players don’t seem to have the courtesy to rake, though carts are equipped with rakes). Overall it’s a very pleasant course, just in need of some attention to groundskeeping due to season and heavy use by players who don’t help by repairing their divots.

Just an off day?

Very slow pace . Two twosomes taking forever and not letting z az nyone play through . I have up after 5 holes and went home. Only paid 18.00 through Golf Now, so not a big loss. Greens were good, but fairways were terible. I don’t know what is normal for Florida in mid March.

Great day on the course

The course was quite busy but it was well organized. Staff was friendly and happy. The course was challenging as I am a newer golfer but it was a great round. After golf we had lunch at the restaurant which was delicious with super friendly and efficient service. Great experience.
