We booked our round and got to the course and found out they have a nine hole scramble at 3pm on Thursday. With the golfers that were already holding us up by not letting faster players ,play through and the scramble .<br/> We waited at least 10 minutes between shots on every hole.

Very nice 9 hole golf course in Dunnellon, FL. The course is in very good condition, & with the exception of the 2nd green, the greens are nice. The staff (Rich) is very friendly & it has that "comfortable neighborly" feel to it. Nice practice range, & putting green, & good value for the money.

Greens are real nice. The fairways are decent. A nice playable course. Sometimes play is slow as I have seen 5 playing in a group.I have seen that often. I mentioned it to the staff, but they didn't seem to care. Last time I played it moved along, no waiting.

A decent little 9 holer that is pretty much wide open without trouble areas. Only about 6000 from the tips so it played as a real fun course. Pretty good shape in all respects. Since it isn't overly long, had a great time with my Dad who is turning 80 this month. Brought back some good shots and memories for him. Worth a replay for an easy paced fun time.

Greens are good. Layout is good and fun. A great place for new players or seniors. The fairways could use a little work, but for the price, you can't beat it. The owners operate the course and snack bar and you won't find a nicer couple anywhere. Go play it and see for yourself - It's an enjoyable place! The homemade food in the snack bar is great.

Although you must make two loops, this course is very challenging. The course relies on accuracy and your putting skills will be challenged. Course condition was good for winter conditions.

Very relaxed environment, super friendly staff, had a great time with my buddy, the clubhouse is dated but everyone was very friendly. Family course so pace gets backed up with only nine holes but great value for the money.

This is a 9 hole course with no water, but a lot of hills.<br/> We had booked it as 18 (2 rounds ) first round was good trying to learn the course. So was looking to a better 2nd round, but got rained out. That's Florida.<br/> But will play it again.

Used to be a fairly patchy course to play but in recent years has greatly improved under new ownership. Tees and greens are quite good but fairways still need a bit more work. Overall, a good value and an enjoyable experience.

Unlike many 9 hole courses this has mostly par 4's and one par 5 several of the longer holes have hills and turns so you can't see where the pin is til you get quite close. It's good fun and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The hot dogs are good too!
