Meh Course

Got a $20 hot deal, so it was worth the $$, but overall for being IMG very disappointing. Every bunker is trash. Number of holes had fringe ripped out and just dirt.

Really nice

A special gem in Bradenton that outshines most courses in the area. I was truly impressed with the course, for the most part from tee to green every hole was in shape. I would definitely recommend playing the course at least once. The range and practice area is set up nicely. They also have GPS on the carts, which shows the distance to front, middle and back of the greens. Everyone for the most part was pleasant.

IMG - is in great shape

The course was in all around great shape. It looked like the greens were punched a few weeks back but it did effect putting. The greens rolled smooth and true. Very little contact with staff but everyone was friendly. Not a lot of water on the course but the course is still challenging. I recommend you play it.

Course is rough around the edges.

Course was not well maintained over all. Bunkers were in rough shape and much of the rough was very high and unkept

IMG HooRay!

First time playing this course. The greens had been punched recently so putting was a challenge.The rest of the experience was marvelous. Think it was generous of them to charge a reduced rate because of the greens but the rest of the course was in great condition.Will play there again in the very near future!

The rain has helped the grass grow back nicely where it had browned out. Always enjoy the course, can't hit driver every hole, played tough but fair today.

Good experience

Pro shop staff was very friendly and helpful as well as outside staff. Pace was good for the amount of players on the course. Overall, course sets up well for pace of play with most holes/shots having a bailout side and a trouble side.
