First Time Playing

Wildlife and Open Fairways

Really enjoyed Sabal course. Round came with lunch, which was tasty. We got it to go and ate on the course. Ice towel and water stations on the course helped us beat the heat.

Saw lots of dear and hawks and an alligator. Course had pretty generous, open fairways which was a welcome change (for me). Staff very friendly

Great conditions, Great place to play, Great lunch, Great views

Pleasant staff whether ProShop, Bag drop, carts, ranger, resturant.

Course very well maintained, always see 20 people working whether cutting grass,, bunker maintenance, weed control, rangering.

'Bring your vacuum' ... the fairways remind you of a green carpet! Picturesque holes - front nine easier then back nine. Wide fairways, side water. If hitting from back tees, you got a test. Front tees no test till 10 thru 18 as hitting over preserves or close in side water. Some rolling mounds on some holes. Side gulleys exist both off fairways and greens. Better in them then water!

Fast greens to put. Practice putting green will show you that as it continues to the course. Could get dry with no rain and this will impact course. Yes there's shade at tees.

Good eatery there for lunch or an after round liberation.

Beautiful course!

Sabal is a beautiful course. When you come to the holes surrounding the large lake it is amazing! Gorgeous sights from any point on the 4 holes that work their way around the lake. It can be easier if you play a shorter course from a closer tee. If you choose a harder tee then you will encounter more challenges.

Great practice facility too.

Try using the GolfBoards if you want a challenge. Tougher than it looks but quite fun. You are standing the entire time and in the sun so it is not for the weak.

best greens in town

This course is a nice getaway from tbe typical boring florida course surrounded by a cheaply built cookie-cutter housing development. The conditions are phenomenal. I work at another course in the area, and always recommend this place. The staff was nice. The restaurant is great too.

Very fast, undulating green surfaces.

Fazio courses, well conditioned and a relative bargin given some of the other courses in the area and their green fees. I will go back.
