Generous 'landing' areas; greens large & smooth, reasonably priced, employees pleasant. Strongly recommend
Course is in great overall shape. Much much much improved over last 2 years. Pace was pretty good but don't expect that every time .it's winter in Florida.
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.
Slow play and smell of waste treatment plant was terrible.
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.
Fun golf course
A nice course in good condition. It has enough challenge for everyone
Course conditions did not match the conditions at this time last year. Greens were not in very good condition.
Despite torrential rains the night before and some standing water on the fairways( cart path only) the round went smoothly. The fairways and greens were nearly perfect. The round took 3 1/2 hours.
It was a bit cool and windy but we enjoyed this course. Good layout for Florida.
Nice golf day
Course was in average condition, fairly open layout. Pace was okay for a busy day. Would play again.
The staff was outstanding and check in very easy .
The course was in good shape considering the amount of rain it had received recently. We were paired with a gentleman from Canada who had played the course previous and was very helpful. Would recommend the course for any players.
Solid golf experience.
Fantastic staff! Greens need some TLC. Nice layout. Lots of wildlife- including gators.
Count lock up
Waited on every single shot
My own fault for playing on a Sunday just before Christmas.
When I booked on golf now the description read Manatee and not Manatee Count, I try and stay away from a public course on week ends.
Grooming is only as good as County puts in,
Too bad, I can say I played this course as the only positive.
What a mess
Tee boxes not to bad. Fairways need a lot of work. Second cut needs to be mowed. All the greens are terrible, it’s like putting on the moon if you have ever been on the surface of the moon. I haven’t. I paid 19.00 on golfnow. The other player paid 45.00 at the club house. What a waist of money, felt bad for the guy. That’s why these reviews are important.
Local’s Alert - Snowbirds!
Local’s - Please note the snowbirds are back. Along with their lack of etiquette that is hurting course conditions even more! Divots not filled, unrepaired ballmarks on greens is HORRIBLE, Cigarette butts galore, cigar butts galore, spot sunflower seeds on tees and greens, garbage thrown about and horrifically slow play. Be prepared to play a 5+ hour round. Price is too much money.
Pope golf should be ashamed of themselves at the poor conditions they’ve let these greens get to. They could be great but nahh they’d rather pocket the money.
While us locals played and stuck with this course over the summer and rainy season we are now subjected to taking a backseat to the rude season folks. I feel bad for the staff having to deal with it.
While we stuck it out through the worst conditions of the year it’s sad that we’re passed over for the almighty dollar and now have to accept the decline of quality due to patrons with zero respect for the course. Extremely disappointed on many many levels.
@DanGolferz Your reply means nothing, absolutely zero. It’s a county course so get your facts straight ma’am.
I agree that many so called golfers don’t fix their ball marks but “locals” remember that the snowbirds keep the golf courses in the area open, so maybe show a little respect!
