Coral Oaks July 20, 2020

Had a 12:42 p.m. tee time and showed up around 11:30 a.m. for some range time. Finished up around 12:08 and was sitting under some shade near the 18th green when the starter rode up and told me we are waiting for 3 more and to not start before 12:42 and I said o.k. About 10 minutes go by with the course wide open and no one teeing off on hole 1 when a single pulls up to hole 1, tees off and is on his way. Out of curiosity I drive up to the starter and ask why that single was able to play and the starter says "because he paid more money" to which I replied "oh, o.k.". Then as I was turning the cart around he says "and that's why you have to wait until 12:42" to which I replied "I heard you the first time, thank you". I have no problem if someone pays more money to play as a single, but if the starter has a problem with a customer that has a legitimate question and acts rudely, I would just assume not play there anymore. Other than that the course conditions were good and the rest of the staff were professionals.

Beware of Lightening

Unfortunately there were multiple Lightening Strikes in the area, so our tee time was pushed out more than 90 minutes. We decided to get a rain check from golfnow. We will be back again.

Just aerated

I booked this on Golfnow but was not warned that it had been aerated. They did a very poor job of sanding the greens after punching multiple holes. The sand was not spread evenly leaving about about half of the punched out holes uncovered and and too much sand in other places. You would think that they would have done this when they were closed for two months or at least fixed potholes in the cart path.

Nice public course

Considering all factors, Coral Oaks represents very good value as compared to some of the other pricier options in the area. Fair layout. good condition and excellent greens.
Pro Allan Manguson provides very good instructional sessions as well.

Good day of golf

Paired up with 3 other guys who all were great to golf with! No wait during the round, so very enjoyable.

Greens look ok but slow and bit inconsistent. Fairways ok and getting better. Staff here very friendly and effecient. I will play again.

Another great day.

If you are hitting the ball well then you are in for a fun day. You can score well but you have to be careful of the water it will take you down. The fairways are friendly for the most part and if you keep it low your drives will run out and leave in good position for your approach shot to the green.
The greens run true and are fast but not too fast. Birdie putts can be made.
Go out and play!

Had an excellent Round

I was a single golfer vacationing in the area and a member group of 3 offered me to join them. Enjoyed the course and the company of the three gentlemen. Course is watered well and greens rolled well. Course layout has some challenging holes. I have already planned to return this week.

Great Time

Coral Oaks is a great track. Needs some grounds crew work, cart path paving, it’s a city course, but with incredible service, great people, pro staff, just needs money for maintenance

Needs a lot of work

Every area has its goat track golf courses but they are usually less expensive to play than is Coral Oaks. A course can be a goat track based solely on course condition but relating coarse condition to green fee is what makes Coral Oaks a goat track for track for me.

Grass is sparse and there is no evidence that new grass is being planted or that fertilizer is being applied or that greens have been plugged for a long time.. In the hotter months tees are predominantly sand. Leaves under trees are allow to lie rather than collected and removed. Cart paths are deteriorating.

Coral Oaks is a municipal course and might be starved for money from the city. Looking at Indeed.com for jobs advertised at the course might provide a hint as to where the city is spending its money at Coral Oaks. A cursory visit to the Cape Coral HR or Indeed.com sites indicates that there are several six figure jobs there, which to my experience is unheard of for a course of this nature and condition..

All-in-all this is a course where one can play a round of golf but not necessarily enjoy a round of golf.
