The course is fantastic and in great condition the staff is exellent and very friendly

We came here last year and it was our 2nd time now

We drove 40 miles from where we stayed just to play at corksrewgolf club

What is very sad that at 5pm the club house including the bar / restaurant is closed including the toiletts!!!!!!!!@

We teet off at 1.20 pm and finished at 5 pm and you can not enjoy a drink after the round at the golf club... this is a shame and realy spoiled a great round of golf,

Looks like they do not want anybody using the facilities after 5 pm

So be aware of it that is for us the first golf course we played around the world where the close so early. It is a pitty

Had a great time everyone was very helpful. Starter said we should play white instead of blues. Which was very nice of him to tell us. Shot a 78 would play from blues next time. Would like to play when it is dried out. Very nice lay out and a fun , fair , and challenging lay out.

Conditions were a little soggy due to Irma (last week) but staff did great job getting course ready to play. As usual, Nicklaus makes you think your way around this course. Your first round will be exploratory at best but with familiarity it'll play more friendly. He does take the driver out of your hands on several par 4 and makes it position golf - but fun. Would and will play again.

This course challenges every part of your game. I failed the challenge as usual, but enjoyed trying. Despite the recent hurricane the course was in very good shape. I would play this course every day for this price.

Old corkscrew is on the edge of a preserve and they keep that feeling throughout the course. There is no houses around the course instead just beautiful nature. The layout is challenging from any set of tees as the fairways picnch in in your landing zone creating a lot of risk reward shots. The par 5s aren't long but they require pin point accuracy and tempt you to try to reach the green in 2 if you take a chance.

The greens have large undulations but rolled true and held nicely on appproach shots. The run off areas made for challenging iron selections

Only negative was the clubhouse and lack of beverage cart. I know I played in low season but in the heat a beverage cart would be nice

Beautiful course and layout. Unfortunately Florida has got a ton of rain and the course was wet, cart path only and lots of bugs. (Bring your spray). If you play in the 80's play the white tees-they play longer than the yardage on the score card. Slope ratings are very very high so don't get frustrated the first time you play it. Beautiful practice facility. Gps on carts. If you want a challenging course-this is a must play. Had a great day!

Tough track. Be ready for small greens that are Fastin undulating. Ensure your approach charts are on the mock greens are firm and difficult to hold. If you want to test your skills old corkscrew will definitely do that
