I have held off writing a review until now because it was obvious to me early on that changes were happening. I just didn't know if they would be enough. They are. The course still needs improvement but seems to be getting it. Greens are much better than they were even 6 weeks ago. Fairways are also progressing. This during busy season. If they continue to work on the course as they have it will be extremely nice by next year's on-season. As is, it is a good value play.
Le terrain est relativement facile
Pas de grandes difficultés sur le terrain. Les départs des jalons rouges semblent "Garochés" , ils n'ont pas de surélévation comme ceux des hommes. Ils sont à plats sur le "Fairway" , sans marqueurs de longueur. Il ne faut pas oublier son GPS car très peu d'indication sur les longueurs sur le terrain. Un habitué s'y retrouve mais la première fois c'est difficile d'évaluer la distance. On y revient selon les HOTDEALS offerts. Au prix régulier il est dispendieux pour la qualité offerte.
A wonderful place to play
Although the condition of Villa Delray golf course could have used a little TLC, the layout is extremely playable and fair for golfers of all handicaps.
The real beauty of the course, however, is in it's personable, professional, and dedicated staff.
From the second we pulled up to the bag drop where the starter made us feel like part of the family, to the few pleasant minutes we spent in the pro shop, to the wonderful starter (with the help of the pro) who found a way to get us out early due to an impending storm, to the rangers, who even helped us find lost balls, we were treated like royalty.
It is this wonderful staff that would have made Villa Delray a bargain at any price....but then, the price itself, was a bargain; especially during the height of the Florida golf season.
Let's see, a fair course, a wonderful staff, and a low price?
It's a "no brainer." We will be back.

Course is finally getting green and greens have improved.
Course has a good mixture of water & traps
There are condos on the course but well out of the way. It is in decent shape. Would go back
The course is coming back
Course conditions particularly the greens are beginning to fill in. They are still sandy, hard, but somewhat fair. Land your approach high or you will roll off the greens.
Play is slow,no help from ranger. Did not see one the entire round. Had to call one due to very slow threesome in front of our foursome. Second time this has happened.
Will play there again.
Putt and pray!!!!!
When it comes to golf all I really care about is the greens and bunkers... The Fairway the rough not so much...
The greens at this course was unreadable that is the greens were so bad there was no reason to try and read them. Putt and pray!!!!!
The bunkers, fairway and course layout was good but the only thing they really need to work on is the greens.
Great Staff. Great beginner course
The staff was excellent, they all seem to be hard working individuals and very friendly. So the good was the staff, and I actually liked the layout for the most part. The unfortunate thing is they are the worst greens, or arguably the worst greens I ever played. I really wish the green were just even half decent, because then I would have enjoyed it a little more, but unfortunately I wasn't even sure what I was putting on between the dirt, sand, crab grass, and seeding, no clue. But other then then greens, the course was a fun time and if you want to have some fun and don't care about putting or pace or play, this course will work out great. Also good course for beginners. Wish them the best
The course was in pretty good shape. 2 fairways still wet from hard rain day before. Greens in fair shape. Play a little slow due to 3 hacks in front. P rice right on golfnow 27 and change. For -8 w cart..I would still recommend course.
no grass on greens
course layout was the only good thing about the place.
ok if you pay less than $20 and are just looking to get out and swing.
forget about putting
God course...greens bad.
People were friendly. Starter was very good and got us off a bit early. Fairways were good. Greens were awful. No grass on most of the greens. Backside was a little better but still many bare spots. Their greens looked like a fungus infected them. Pace of play was OK. Value was OK thanks to a Hot Deal on Golfnow.
The golf is ok but the green could be better.
The Green could be better.
The price is too expensive witz the condition you have.
good value - white tees dont add up
poured immediately after we finished the first hole, and after a crack of lightning, everyone basically left, and we stuck it out and the course was wide open. had one twosome up our butts but they didnt speak a lick of english and couldnt understand "would you like to play through" so we said fine, and just played in front of them because they just didnt get it. this course is in pretty poor shape compared to others, but at ~$15 (hotdeal) on the weekend, i wasn't really expecting much. the greens rolled pretty nicely (minus the standing water on 2 because of the rain), but they were not that appealing to the eye. in fact they were down right ugly looking, which fooled me with the speed pretty much all day. i see plenty of commercials on tv advertising this place, and that needs to stop immediately and that tv money should be put into the course. also, their website promotes walk-in rates, which only can overbook things, clog up the course, make rounds 5+ hours, and irritate people, which i can't agree with. and one final gripe, their yardages dont ad up on the card (which is unacceptable). the front 9 white tees is 2807, and back 9 is 3191, which clearly ads up to 5998, and the card says it's 6201! the black tees dont add up either but its only a few yards instead of 200. i would play this course again for the same price, but not for anything higher than that. if you can get a sub $20 round, then it's definitely worth a visit.
I would play there again I enjoyed the course
It is a nice long course but the greens could be in better shape
This course is well bunkered and is good value.
Well bunkered and a good chAllenge for all levels of players.
Nothing great, nothing real bad, relatively inexpensive. Could have used some rangers to encourage faster play - a 3some played slower than the 2 Romeos behind it.
