Tight course but in good condition

This course is very tight with trees on both sides of the fairways, particularly on the back 9. However, it is a nice course which is in pretty good condition. The greens were too fuzzy this time, but I suspect that they mow them closer on the weekends.

" the Flash from the Past "

." A little disappointing to be honest "
... this Golf course was such a treat to play in the 1980's -- 1990's -- 2000's ,
when we were members of the Club.

On a Positive note ....
Just needs a little TLC and investment $$$$$ to return it to the Pride of Past !!!

The Staff was very Professional and Personal ...
" Thanks for the opportunity to visit "

Sweetwater CC is "sweet"

Played with a relative who takes group golf trips regularly. Thought Sweetwater was better than any course he had ever playe in Fla. And better than most in the Carolinas.
Thought it was beautiful, and gee a were excellent. Much better than courses he had paid 4-5 times as much to play, although we lucked in to the lowest price I had ever seen on this course. Best golf deal either of us ever had. No waiting on Fri. Afternoon.

Well playable track in rather moderate condition

This is a good place to go, but nothing special at all. The course has some narrow holes that require straight shots. Fairways and bunkers are OK. T-boxes need some attention. Greens are mostly OK, but not really special.

It is just a “small” place, OK for a pleasant round but nothing much to it.

An aging gem

Reasonably well maintained course conditions. Generous fairways, with well guarded greens by sand and water. Greens were very slow, with subtle undulations. A very good test of golf, but fair. We very much enjoyed our day. Clearly being run on a shoe string, although conditions still allow for a satisfying round.

Always a challenge

Some very tight holes demand straight tee shots and some elevation change make this a very good layout to test your game. Greens were a bit slower than normal but still very acceptable. all skill levels should enjoy this course.

Sweetwater

We found a great deal at Sweetwater online. However, the day we chose, the course had a members event that ran late. Many tee times were delayed about an hour waiting for the carts to be returned. Once we teed off, though, the day was great. Pace of play was OK even with the backup. The course plays somewhat tight, but there are places to hit controlled shots. The greens seem to putt really well the times we have played here

Interesting and challenging

I really enjoyed playing this course. Pretty difficult because of all the trees. Several tee shots have over hanging trees that you must be aware of. Par threes are pretty frisky. Greens roll very nicely and are actually better then they appear. Number 10 is a Monster.
No food and beverage available as they were getting ready for a wedding.
Definitely worth a look !!!
A bit unusual that you have to drive back down the first fairway ( or cross over and drive down second ) to get to 2nd tee box. A good place to get hit !!

Great conditions

I was greeted in the Pro Shop by the assistant pro Lee Mann......very helpful.....great attitude. I love this course. The condition is excellent. it's nice to see green fairways and tee boxes. The greens are some of the best In the area. I'm eighty two and it's nice to be able to get on in regulation, this course allows me to do that,once in a while. My son and I played here last Saturday. I 've been back
three time since then...can't get enough of a good track.

Never enough golfing

My wife and I play the Sweetwater course twice a month. We consider it an open type course; however, we prefer a more precision type layout. Yet, we enjoy playing there and have played with others of like mind.

great golf course

Golf Enthusiasts.

Sweetwater CC is a great, old school golf course. It has one of the best layouts in Orlando. This golf course will make you use every club in your bag, always a sign of a good golf course. The par 3's are particularly challenging. I will be back soon!

Fairways and Greens,
Mike

nicely kept facility

the course is well maintained with wall to wall overseed.play was a little slow with a 4-some holding everyone up,if a ranger was employed this would have helped in getting faster groups through.great price in the middle of day.
