Not Good- I would not recommend

CONS:
The course is not in good shape- more weeds than grass.

The golf carts have black seats- could not sit on them when the cart was parked in the sun for any period of time.

PROS:
There were very little players on the course. (probably because of the course conditions)

The rest area and snack shop was open.

This is a superb track and as you might expect has its share of challenges, but it has some very simple holes for senior golfers as well. It might be a while before you get on the course again, I think they are aerating the course so a week or two maybe.

Nice pro shop and restaurant, easy in and out facilities around the course for beverages and quick eats. It makes you feel that you're the only one on the course because of the way it's laid out, and a very environmentally-friendly course. The scenery and the staff were top notch. Great experience!

Nice course

After playing many of the private clubs in the area I would say this is slightly a step below most of the nicer ones. Greens were very slow which made putting tough, range is pretty decent nothing special but more than adequate . Overall I rate it higher than most public courses in the area

Great day!

Just to be clear, the course should probably get a 5 star rating for condition considering how recently the greens were punched but a few putts were lost due to dead spots. It’s a resort course so, the layout is super friendly. The course and facilities are excellent overall. Great summertime value and not a bad value any time of year if you’re not spoiled by the plethora of options SWFL affords as a full time resident. Can’t say enough about the friendliness of the staff.

Tough course

I expected it was going to be tough. Couple of suggestions that would have made my round a little more fun.
1) ensure all carts with gps are working prior to the golfer starting their round.
2) Mark hazard areas better.
3) The blue/white tee box areas to tee off

Raptor bay

Great layout. Fairways tight and in great shape. Greens looked liked they’d been punched 10 days earlier. Some tee boxes in terrible shape. Still all in all a great course. Lots of water.
