Raptor Bay A Real Challenge

We enjoyed our round at Raptor Bay but you need to keep it on the straight and narrow - water and gators are everywhere. The pin placements were extremely challenging and the greens played very fast. Staff is excellent from Rachel on the cart to Alex in the Pro Shop. We'd go back.

Great Course

This course was in great shape and was very fun to play. The starter was a bit rude and pushy but other than that the rest of the staff was nice. The amenities were great. I shot my best round ever playing there. Ill definetly come back.

This ain't golf.

The course was in very good shape, but it is way too costly for the poorly executed layout. If you enjoy golf holes with fairways that were larger than the driving range and huge greens this may be your thing. but the course layout has zero imagination and will bore most golfers. There are alot of better courses in the area for the same money.

Nice overall round

The course is in good shape with water to the sides on most holes along with elevated greens. Hitting the fairways kept it easy for approaching the greens. Greens are good for putting, nothing too crazy. Overall a nice experience. We had an early tee time so not many others out there so pace was great. Rental clubs were in good shape. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, we also had lunch after and it was very good. The price was a bit high as thought but comparable to some courses around.

Must Play at least once

Very much appreciate the challenge of the layout. The different look from tee to tee selections. However, because of the high fees, can only play when seasonal specials are in play. A must course for better golfers and nature lovers.
