Nice but a bit worn out

Very nice staff and the electric carts were a nice touch. This facility is a great place to play. It must be suffering of late from the hot weather. Greens were a little bumpy and had a few bare (burn) spots. The fairways were actually pretty well groomed.

I think this is a good place to play. Hopefully they can resolve the greeens issue shortly.

A work in progress

Golf course has good layout but the greens were very slow and there were big sections of rough they were not able to mow because of recent heavy rain.

Tees boxes are well designed and the ladies tees are appropriate.

Better options elsewhere

Bar/food staff very friendly. Golf staff makes you feel like you’re a bother. Course fun layout, but greens too slow.

Not the best conditions for Cimarrone today!

I've played Cimarrone many times over the years and found it to be a challenging and enjoyable course. Today's round however, did not meet my expectations. The course was overwhelmed by recent rains, carts on rough only. The fairways had many more soggy spots than normal and made shots more difficult from squishy lies. The greens were recently aerated and putting was a crap shoot. Also, the colored flags on many holes were not properly placed. For example, several holes had red flags placed at the back of the green instead of the front. Missed played shots followed. I will certainly play Cimarrone again in the future but today's round was not the reason I will return on a better day with better conditions.

Challenging Course

The course is really nice but the rough was way too high for it not to be in preparation for some kind of big tournament. You shouldn’t lose balls 5-10 yards off the fairway.

Double Tee Slow Down

Hard to judge the course conditions when the greens were recently punched, so that’s understandable. However, the way the double tee on Saturday was setup was not ideal. We were the first group off on the back 9 that morning. Moved along nicely. However, come the turn, we were told to wait for a couple more tee times to go off the front. We were told to hang out for about 20min or so. By the time we got to the first tee we had to relay that info to others coming to make the turn as well, without a starter to assist in this backup. The rest of the 9 was very slow and congested. I would just recommend a few less tee times if a double tee is being utilized. I understand wanting more play, but it was not very efficiently done.

Greens punched recently.

The course was punched recently so the greens were not very puttable. Lots of rain recently made the corse very soft. I really Like the course but am going hold off playing there again for a few weeks to let the greens heal and water dry up. Such are the travails of summer golf in Florida.. the humidity was 80+%. Miserably, but not the courses fault. The staff is great BTW.

Tee’s missing

The conditions of the tee boxes were terrible. They had re-soded #9 tee. The rest of the tee boxes were spotty at best.

Heavy rains the night before made course play long

I’ve played the course several times over the last year. The condition of the greens has greatly improved over that time. I was Surprised that only #1, #10, and #18 were cart path only since there was several inches of rain the night before and we had a 7:20 morning tee time. I was very pleased overall. Will play again soon, hopefully under dryer conditions.
