Great course

Great shape throughout the course. Being a first timer, I hit a few shots I thought were good, turned out not so. Layups were tough to judge. Only saw three people on the course. Let a dingle through but had to wait on an on course lesson on several occasions. Only real negative were the flying insects, flies gnats mosquitoes, whatever they were, they were overwhelming at times. Bug spray didn’t really help much,. Don’t know if that was a product of the rains or how far inland we were.

Too hot and buggy!

The course is almost recovered from aeration. The course is challenging and the greens were hard and sandy. There are lots of undulations, so if you are not straight you might be in a woods hazard, or a water hazard. It was also extremely hot and muggy. Flies, gnats and small bugs were buzzing on my arms legs, and flies around my head. I played by myself, but ran into a threesome that didn't offer to let me through. Once we made the turn, I asked if I could go through. They let me. I was moving quickly, but made a few errors, which prolonged the agony of a terrible scoring round. But I would recommend the course, but bring bug spray.

Beautiful Nicklaus Signature course

This is a shot makers course with very challenging greens. The course was absolutely amazing, and is in a preserve with no houses. The complex is all about golf and doesn't disappoint! Will look forward to playing again soon.

Not worth the $

The good: staff was awesome. From the cart guys to the shop staff to the beverage girl - everyone was great and friendly.
The bad: course conditions have gone downhill. Haven’t played here in about 2 years but the greens appear to be dealing with some sort of infection/fungus that is tough to swallow given the price to play there. Next, the pace of play was laughable. 5 hour and 25 minute round. Let me reiterate that - nearly 5 1/2 hrs to play 18 holes. No ranger in site anywhere trying to help the pace along. We had the guys behind us hit over our heads twice - probably from the embarrassingly slow play. Nearly started a fight bc of this. I will never return to this course. It was a joke.
Sad part is I shot a 73 from the tips which is by far my best outing in a while on a 7400yd course. Despite the great play, the day was a wash if that tells you anything. Please take your money elsewhere.

Great course. Bad Round

The course is in a very good shape. It is a challenging one and you have to know were to place the ball for the next shot.
Bad side of the round was that we were paired up with a single. He hadn’t have any respect when someone of us was at the tee box. No etiquette. Seeking for lost balls in the hazard during the whole round. Advise if you want to enjoy your round avoid to get paired up.

Great golf!

I tend to rush when I play single, but not here. Jack is all about shot making and that is featured at Old Corkscrew. A great course to put away the scorecard and play a match with your partner. Great off season rate and conditions. Played twice this week and loved it. Ready to take the Corkscrew game back to my home course.

Bring Your “A” Game!!!

This is one of the most difficult courses I’ve ever played. This course embarrased & humbled a single digit handicapper. Although the course condition & weather were near perfect, sometimes good shots were punished anyway. The greens are pretty small, undulating & fast! They are hard to hold unless you hit it high (which most amateurs can’t.) The bunker sand was inconsistent from hole to hole. Some were packed hard while others were soft. The staff was friendly & efficient. This was my 1st time playing here & look foward to playing it a bit smarter the next time.

Tough conditions

It is a very tough course, specially for a high handicapper. Very tricky greens. I must say it is a well maintained course and very scenic . It is pricey but not if you play off season.

Great experience playing here. Summer prices make it a great deal. Teed off at 12-30 and found it very hot which added to fatigue and maybe poor back 9 lol. Highley recommend this course.

Corkscrew

Very good course but terrible bugs buzzing and biting made the round very uncomfortable. Very challenging course in general. Clubhouse closed when we finished round for course maintenance. 55 dollars too much compared to other courses we have played.... not such a hot deal with golfnow!!!!!

Loved the Challenge

Gorgeous Golf course. The place is surrounded by trees and critters. The water in play for some holes was well placed and looked great. Very challenging course with very little to almost no forgiveness.
Any mistake left or right results in an OB. Bunkers are well placed and they are always in play. Bunker sand is terrible. Greens rolled really well and the Cart GPS is accurate. Fairways and tee boxes are in great condition and fun to hit from. Plays long, but Driver is often not the best option.
