IMG Academy is a fun place to play, and they've recently made good improvements to the golf course.
New tee boxes and repaired greens make it much nicer than it had been over the past few years. Great practice area, especially the chipping/short range.
Fast pace of play. Not the toughest golf course, but it's interesting and fun.
"No range balls after the round"
I thought the course was fair. Not too challenging and not too much to the greens. I teed off at 7:15. There is absolutely no reason that the round should have taken over 3 hours. I played the front 9 in 1 hour and came to a standstill on hole #15.
Since I tee'd off at 7:20 there was very little time to hit the complementary range ball prior to my round. After 18 I wanted to hit a few wedges to work on my short game. As I was hitting some balls, the ranger told me I needed to leave since I had already played. In all my years of playing I have never been told such a thing. That experience alone is enough so that I will not be returning to IMG.
Enjoyed the golf course, you can see they are doing some work on the fairways, but greens are very good.
Great value in the winter season. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Complimentary practice balls before the round, nice short game facility makes for a good warm up. Good hot dogs at halfway house!
Fun and challenging layout
This is my second time playing IMG. I really like the layout there are challenging tee shoots and you do need to play some target golf. The greens are mostly flat so once you are on it gets a little easier. the greens were in great shape. the fairways were a little dried out but that is to be expected in late July in Florida. overall good experience and I will be going back.
Good greens, but that's it...
Greens were in good condition but fairways and tees were in terriible shape due to the lack of rain. The greens saved the round. The rest was muni-grade, at best.
Hot day and slow play
The course is a nice layout and the greens were just fine. The fairways need water but around the greens is good. Unfortunately there are no rangers to keep people moving and we had a foursome in front of us that just did not care to keep up the pace of play. So we had a 5 1/2 hour round in 94 degree heat that took the fun out of the day.
Course had great greens.course well marked. Could use more water access.
Meet Nick !
This is a fun course all year and very reasonably priced. It's summer and the fairways were burnt badly in some areas. The greens however were really nice for this time of year. There was only a few guys playing after 12 and our foursome had the course to ourselves. Hanging out at the first tee was Nick Bollettieri who had just finished playing 27 holes, PLAYING BY HIS SELF! Unbeleivably nice guy. Saw him on the course again later. It was like 91 degrees and 100% humidity. Staff was great, even put ice water in the carts.
A Big Surprise.
It is apparent that they have stopped watering the tee boxes, fairways and rough. I have never seen these areas in such bad shape. The greens however were spectacular!
I would hate to be a parent of one of the school's students in the golf program spending all that money and have to play on those conditions.
John is telling the truth. The greens are super but once again you get people trying to kill weeds with chemicals in the summer in Florida. If we don't get our summer rain pattern, you can burn up an entire course. The course has gone from a 4* to a 2* in 6 weeks. Hope we get rain soon.
This course has been on my radar for some time and first time playing was a challenge as there are LOTS of bunkers and some hidden water. Greens were rolling quite true and with some speed. I will play a gain.
