Played here a few times, and each time the bunkers show a complete lack of maintenance. The rough was mowed around each of them, but there was a knee high strip of grass around the rim of each. Absolutely no effort to maintain sand in any of them. All were hardpan with a wall off weeds guarding the lip. Greens and Fairways were mostly very well maintained.

I play here often and this is one of the best rounds I’ve had in a while. The course is in great shape except the bunkers, they were a bit pack down but I wasn’t in them much today. The tee box on 7 is always in rough shape and today was no different but the rest were all good. The fairways and green were in good shape. All in all a nice round for me.

Over the last ten years I have played this course about 6 times. I like the track but staff is general rude. Generally, rudeness does not bother me. 2 minute at the pro shop, 1 one minute annoyed starter...no skin off my back but enough is enough. I love golf and like the track and hope the rueness it would be better as the years past by...but now the course is rubbish. bad green ...more grass in the bunker then the green.. and hurried to the tee box to accommodate Thursday league play only to run into the league on the last 5 hole . thanx but no thanx

The fairways were in good shape and the greens putted true. The slow pace of play is the only difficult challenge, but that's more the fault of other golfers and not the fault of the course or staff. I recommend this course to anyone who wants a moderate challenge at a great price. The only thing they need to work on is some of the tee boxes, other than that, wonderful course. The course drains really well because we've had a lot of rain lately but there were no soggy areas in the fairways.

Book a great Hot Deal on GolfNow.com. I always book on this site at least once a week and used this service many, many times. In my booking history I've had two issues upon arrival at any golf course; strangely both times occured at Silverthorn. I had to call the VIP number at GolfNow to get them to verify i in fact had 'paid" for my tee time as Randy at the pro shop stated i did not appear on their tee sheet. Once i got through this hassle it was a fine day of golf. The course is in good shape and is not a long layout. ( I use my 3 wood off most Par 4's.) I just hope my next visit to Silverthorn will come with less frustration.

The course is excellent with nice fairways , a lot of sand traps and water hazards at several holes. The one thing wrong is not enough space between the tee off parties. We tee off at 1 and the next foursome was right behind us and so on. A few times we had to wait for two foursomes ahead of us so we could tee off. I did shoot my lowest score that day and still felt rushed.

Its a shame because this course has a great layout but its condition is appalling.There are vast areas with no grass particularly the approaches to most of the greens and consequently it is impossible to play “proper” golf shots as more often than not one is playing off dirt or sand.According to various sources these areas have never been repaired and just get worse as each year passes.Many of the landing zones in the fairways(using the term loosely) are devoid of grass.These areas need rotivating and re-seeding as do the aprons around the greens.The bunkers had not been raked and the edges are collapsing.It is quite obvious that this course is in serious decline and has been neglected through lack of investment.It needs a serious injection of money to re-establish itself otherwise l doubt whether it will be here in 12 months time.l am surprised that the few members who are left tolerate the situation.Word has it that the owner does not appreciate the value of his membership....a strange philosophy to hold perhaps!given the circumstances.However it could be that this time next year they will be playing elsewhere on grass for a change!!It may be dirt cheap to play but l shan't be coming back in a hurry,I would rather pay a little more for better quality and at least enjoy the experience rather than finishing the round and feeling totally exasperated and frustrated by the poor state and condition of the course .

If you’re in the Brooksville area you won’t want to miss this one. Very nice course, player friendly, with good pace of play. Four very challenging holes, two are long and two have water that will get your attention. Booked on golf now for $27, $10 credit, great value at $17!

First time playing here. Booked on GolfNow and didn't know they had a league tournament playing that day. Regardless, what told what hole to tee off on and ended up having a great time. Course was in very good condition and challenging. The course was a little further than I normally would have driven to play, but I'm glad I did.

neighborhood courses are not my favorite golf but this course overcomes alot of hesitation I felt when booking it . A very nice layout that has all the possibilities of being very special .. but .. the fairways and greens are why it is just a local favorite only . However the course is such a nice layout I feel good about coming back because World Woods is too expensive .. Saddlebrook and Lake Jovita are high dollar still .. .. so .. my budget play is Silverthorn til the prices change May 1 in Florida .

I really like the layout of this course. Play here a lot in the winter months when my favorite courses are too expensive. Course is always in decent shape, although the fairways can get pretty tight this time of year. Bunkers could use some care and a little more sand. They serve a lot of leagues during the week so tee times can be hard to get sometimes. Usually not too bad on the weekends. All in all, a decent course
