Great Day at Barefoot Bay

To begin with the staff was super accommodating, they were ready for us on the first tee, we didn’t have to go in the clubhouse to get our receipt. They also gave us a choice of how many carts we wanted to use. The course itself was in pretty good condition.. No one slowing us down in front & no one pushing us from the rear. It was a great round.

Course Needs WORK

This course has great staff and location; however, the course conditions were terrible. Throughout the first hole, we lost two balls due to the grass just off the fairway being too high. There are many better courses in this area for the same price. Stay away from this course until they can get a better system for maintaining their course. The greens were the worst I’ve seen in Florida.

Weather was good

Carts were very clean and sanitized. That was the best part of the day. The course needs work the rough was 6 to 8 inches high. The greens were terrible. Course is very short with to many par 3s.

The pro was unbelievably kind!!

We went to the course for our 2:24 tee time only to find out we booked our time for Wednesday and not Thursday. Pro. Was so very kind and allowed us to play our round anyway. The course was busy making this even more incredible. Pace of play was great and the course is in very good condition! Thanks for making our day!
