Staff has issues with golf now members

If the course is empty, the head pro will not let golf now Members off early no matter what, so take your time, and don't let Members play through

First rate experience

The course was in great shape and my wife and I played in 3 1/2 hours. Nothing better than playing a wonderful course on a beautiful sunny afternoon.

If your under 70 don’t go here!

I never write reviews unless I have a very bad experience. Most courses in the central Florida/North Florida area are great. However because this is a semi-private course they follow you to the extent it almost feels like they are keeping tabs on you. When your being followed you cannot play your best. The course is great. Staff is very VERY unprofessional. Almost intimidating if your not a “member”. Not worth it go to Stone Creek less than two mikes away where they let you play your game and don’t act like snobby white wasps. I do not recommend anyone golfing here even though the course is fun the staff and environment ruins it.

Great course, great price

Arguably the best public course in Ocala area. The weather was windy for most of the round and temperature was moderate. No one was in front of us or behind us until the 16th hole. Course was in fine shape, could not have asked for more at this time oh the year in Central Florida. We had a wonderful time.
