Course in great shape. Fairways have some cushion to them which makes it easier to hit off them.

Slow start no rangers after 3

Slow start due to players in front taking too long per hole. Why no rangers after 2 ?

Pick Up The Tempo

I know Florida is a laid back state, but I felt like I spent an eternity on the course today. It amazes me how a player can be 280 yards away from the group in front of them and wait to hit their next shot. That same shot goes 50 yards. Newsflash, there are other players behind you shaking there heads. This is not the PGA, and your far from a PGA player. Speed it up to slow motion so others can get done by weeks end.

Manatee County Golf Couste

Played @ 11:54 am, on a Friday. Tee time was obtained through GN. Started play on the 10th hole. Our twosome was joined up with another husband/wife twosome. Compieted the round unde 5 hours. Course was monitored by course “ambassadors” throughout the day Except for the first three holes we never had to wait for our next shot. Fairways were good, greens were fast. An excellent day., good time, and an excellent experience. This is a public course. Price for Friday play was “ok”. I would definitely play here again

Rick

The course was pretty well maintained. The pace of play was good. The course layout was very tough in spots especially since it was a windy day. Overall a fun course to play

SLOW

Slow, slow, slow. Course must back up tee times. It’s insane every hole has golfers on green, fairways, and tee boxes. Pick up the pace just somewhat. 2 1/2 hours for 9 holes is a bit much. Gave up weekend golf only to experience the same result on a Thursday.

Course.is improving.

Played the course the previous week and was somewhat disappointed in the condition of the course, but the proximity of the course to where we are staying brought me back. I was impressed by how much improvement had taken place in one week. The greens were in much better condition than the previous week. I plan to be back.

Great Golf for the price

Played the course through GolfNOW for a really good price. Fun course, but very slow, lots of players and they seem to allow walkers throughout the day which slows pace of play.
