Nice course, nice people

Played with very friendly members and enjoyed a lovely day on the course. It isn’t very challenging and the fairways are very close together, so that you tend to get into the way of the group in front or behind you. Staff was friendly and it was an overall enjoyable experience.

Good "hot deal".

Nice condition. Long front nine, back is shorter.
Saw some 5-somes that would have made play even slower if the course was more crowded. The "hot deal" price made it worth the slow play.

Nice course for all levels of play

Play this course often when I am in Florida. Better value then most, fairways are open and not a great deal of water. Pace is usually good. this round was just over three hours because there was no one on the course! Not usually that fast though.

San Carlos golf course

Course is very wide open which maybe attractive to high handicaps. Driving range definitely needs some help. There are no distance markers.
Course is not visually attractive. Price does not include driving range balls.

Straight forward course

We played the course in an extremely windy day (20-25 mph). The course is all in front of you as most holes are straight. The greens were punched but they were also rolled so they pitted well. Would play it again but would look for a discounted price as it was a little pricey even by SW Florida standards for a relatively bread and butter course.

Enjoyable round of gold

Joined 3 other golfers as a single. The staff was very accommodating and the Hot Deal price was excellent. Very windy, but overall a good day!
The course is in good shape.

Have played here twice in the past two weeks. Found course to be in good condition. Greens were a little bumpy in places. Traps are in good shape. Pace of play seems to have improved. Fees are border line reasonable, maybe a tad high. We will continue to visit San Carlos this winter.

Playable

This golf course gets my full respect for catering to seniors and making an effort to speed up play. They have a blue stake near the greens that seniors can drive their cart right up to. It reduces the walking distance and speeds up play.

Unlike most courses in this area, there are only a few water hazards. This also makes for a speedier round and all around more playable.

I enjoyed the layout. The greens were in great shape, and the staff was very nice.

Great course for the money

Excellent course layout. The course is fun to play and has come a long way in 5 years. This course use to be horrible and now it is a 4 star easily for the money. Great staff. Problem areas are, No full time Rangers which equals slow play. When you do see a ranger they seem to be unwilling to approach the members when they are playing slow. I would definitely recommend this course but do be surprised if the round takes 5 to 5 1/2 hours. Be patient and enjoy the day. Looks like they run 5 minute tee times which is why they have slow play. Needs to be 8-9 minute tee times. Plus there is no employee at tee number 1 making sure people are leaving at the appropriate time. This causes the slow play. If they fixed these issues the course would be 5 star all around. Good luck and I hope this information gets to the right people.
