It is a shame this course is closing; it is an older course rambling through 100 year old Live Oak trees<br/> with reasonable elevation changes, raised greens with<br/> good green side bunkering and various left and right doglegs. We can only hope it will reopen in the near future.

some putting greens need work, and a lot of tee boxes were in poor shape. The fairway were for the most part in good shape. For the value I would play there again. I had a golf now reward and the wife and I only paid $10.00 for 18 holes of golf and had some fun.

Good course, greens were nice. Not crowded at all when we played. Friendly staff. Some of the fairways are pretty tight so straight tee shots are a must for a good score.

We played this course on a Friday. The greens were in great condition and incredibly fast. The restaurant does not serve breakfast, but the outdoor grill serves burgers and hot dogs from 11am - which were excellent if you have time to wait before your tee-time. Our second visit to this course - the condition of which has improved considerably from last year.

Older course with very, very limited amounts of grass in fairways and rough. Every shot necessitated precise ball-first contact to generate a quality shot. With limited grass, ball striking was at a premium and chipping even more difficult. A flop shot was nearly impossible except for the exceptionally skilled player.

Greens were extremely fast and in some cases, green slope made it nearly impossible to lag a putt. Some greens were at Augusta-like speed. Full price would have been very disappointing!

Given the mid-March timeframe, grass may become more plentiful in a month or so, don't know.

I was glad that I did not pay anymore than I did. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Was disappointed that the course started watering at 3:30 while I was completing my round with a tee time of 1:07.

All fairways tree-lined on both sides but with good width. Each hole had it's own location. No side by side fairways here. Greens were the most fun. Undulations, uphill, downhill, fast and in good condition. The tee box areas on almost all holes were barren and the fairways were rough in many spots, especially the front nine. Despite the rough conditions in the above mentioned areas we would definitely go back especially with the great price we got through Golfnow which was 50% off the regular rate.

Nice course but greens can be lightning fast with lots of contour it takes a few rounds to learn how much they break. No water hazards on course and for the most part fairly generous fairways. A couple tight holes but nothing horrible. as with most neighborhood courses no cart girl so either purchase at the pro shop or bring your own. Overall I had a fun day and will go back but only for the golfnow deals. Regular price would be a tad high.

This one is a little off the beaten path but worth the trip. The course condition was very good. Fairways and greens were green and well maintained. We really enjoyed the elevation changes and turns which required some shot planning. I would love to play it again and will at some future date. It is in a beautiful setting with lots of lovely natural features all around it. Check out Rainbow Springs State Park while you are there. It is a natural wonder, too.
