Rough

Frustrating to not be able to find your ball in the rough, you could easily walk by it even though you had a good idea of the area. Very tough to dig the ball out of the rough as well, full swing with a 4 iron and getting about 25 yards out of it hitting the ball square. Maybe I'm just weak but that's frustrating. Found several balls near the fairway in the rough so clearly others gave up looking as well. The greens still have lots of bare patches though it looks like some of the spots have been filled with a clover like weed which helps, they're trying at least..

Balls?

I play here every week because of price an convenient to home. But it probably evens out as if you hit in the rough the ball is history. Even when you both know where it landed. For the sake of playing just drop and go. We had 2 foursomes ahead of us so the pace was slow because of the ball search. We even had the 2 behind us try to jump ahead of us not realizing we too were waiting to play. They didn’t get to tee off so we told them go back to the last tee and learn etiquette. I go to enjoy like the others. Sometimes the pace is slow. Ended up smacking my husband with a chip shot. Guess he won’t walk in front of me again

Lawn service?

How do you loose a ball in a fairway. Well I did on the front 9 the 6th hole. Spent minutes looking for the ball, but I don't think they mowed since the last time I was there 3 weeks ago. We spent more time searching for our balls then playing. If you hit in the rough you just as well drop a ball as the grass was over my ankles. I like the course but today I see why it had a low star rating. There was a foursome behind us who we lost after the 3rd hole. Figured they were busy looking for their balls too. Hope they mow soon.

The greens are very fair
The course layout is challenging but straightforward
The fairways are hard
The rough is very penal especially around the greens
The sand traps are in need of new sand and a lot of it.

Pelican Bay North

You can tell this course used to be really nice. They hosted some pro events back in the day. Even though it is not that course anymore, I enjoyed playing it. The greens were ok, but had a few bald spots on the fringes. The tee boxes were ok as well. If you roll your ball in the fairway, you can have fun playing the course.

Never again

Was way overcharged, no ice for coolers, rough not mowed for awhile, black spots and clover in greens (they putted well if ball moved away from spots). When group goes for vacation, this course will NOT be in the rotation.

Funday

It’s a great course for just a fun laid back day. The staff took their time to call and tell me my putter cover was found and put it aside for me. Really like the scenery.

Great place

I really like this place. the only thing is if you hit in the rough, consider that ball lost. We just stopped searching and dropped a ball. I lost 3 balls today, but found 3 balls. So I guess not the only one who can't find them. The course is fun, the scenery beautiful. I like this place.

Worst course I have ever played

Absolutely terrible, from the conditions to the staff to the players. I have never had such a poor and unprofessional experience throughout my time playing golf. The course conditions couldn’t get any worse from the ruined muddy weedy greens to the rough that is 6 inches deep along the fringe. Such a terrible kept course greeted by a rude and unhelpful staff member along with people on the course who don’t understand to not hit on the green while people are putting. Save your money such a waste of time a terrible course.

Bring extra balls.

Overall the course was good, but if you hit in the ruff just kiss that ball goodbye. Had a hard start as the front desk was extremely rude. Then you best bring bug spray as there was a lot of biting black flies and mosquitoes. Outside of those glitches it was an interesting course with lots of wildlife to see. Greens were short and fast.

Course needs help, quickly.

Used to be a good course and played I it regularly. It seems that with this pandemic, they have no course attendants. The rough hasn't been mowed in weeks. Some places it is over 12 inches deep. The fairways and greens don't appeared to have been mowed in a week, since I played there last. I hate that they are letting it go, because I used to enjoy playing there.

Fun and easy!

Great course for beginners, however we didn’t get to play much today, about 3 holes in it started down pouring and didn’t stop. I asked for a rain check but they said since I booked through golf now they could’ve give one.

Stone grounds

Played several times in past few years. The tee boxes were ok. The fairways were extremely hard with no give for the average golfer. The greens were hard with large bare spots. The staff was pleasant. Probably done with pelican bay not for the average golfer.

Great course for the money

This was my first time at this course. I go a lot of places around Central Florida and was pleasantly surprised with Pelican Bay. Course conditions were pretty nice except for a few dead patches on some of the greens. Layout was not super difficult but did create some challenging shots around some of the dog legs. Stay in the fairways to avoid the many canals and small ponds running along side. Pace was good except for the foursome of older gentlemen in front of us. Practice facilities were great. I will definitely return soon.

Empty so played fast

I was a single. Did not see another group until the 16th hole. Some greens need help but overall playable. Nice course for the price.
