Fun to play

Good course that was almost empty. I was able to play at a great pace. I am not a member and was glad to see it's available. I don't know that I would pay $50-60 for a round. About 5-6 fairways needed some TLC but I've seen much worse and the greens were in very good shape. The carts seemed brand new. I would play again as a non-member but it would have to be a hot deal.

Over priced

Quality course for Gainesville, has more character than an average Florida course. Staff, Club Pro, groundskeeper we’re friendly. Putting and chipping green we’re in decent shape, the driving range how ever on the other hand could use some work, you are just beating balls into a pasture, if you hit you long irons to your driver you can’t see it land do to close range woods. Sad to say about this lil course but with the options of surrounding cities with course in better shape from clubhouse to hole for the same price. I will not be returning or recommending to a friend, even after shooting a good round. Just to over priced!

Best greens-true roll

Better get some putting practice for these greens because they roll so true it’s unbelievable. Talked to groundskeeper and they do roll the greens and often which provides for the smoothest and truest roll you can get. No bumpies or putts off track. Not one green had a bad spot. They weren’t ridiculously fast but challenging. Fairways are excellent as well. Course layout was tough. Optional custom blue/white combo tees are marked on the scorecard adding about 200 yds to white tees. Once the traps get re-covered this course will be tops in the area. Staff is friendly & on top of it. Even a cooler of cold bottled water at the turn. Thank you for great experience.

Not worth it!

Paid $53 to play and was a total waste. Pace was slow and layout is very average. Gainesville is a notoriously bad town for quality golf, but driving to Ocala is a much better option than GCC. You could play 5 different courses in Ocala for under $30 with better layouts, conditions, and amenities.

Great course

The course overall was pretty awesome, loved the layout. You can tell at one point this would have been the nicest course in Gainesville, but it could use some better maintenance. I would definitely play her again!

Very disappointed after reading reviews!

This was our first time playing and it was a big disappointment.
The course condition was fair, the fairway grass was very thin along with the roughs, some of the greens had dirt patches that looked like they had had fungus that killed the grass, the layout was average nothing special. For the price and reviews it was disappointing as we can compare to other places much better condition and paid less for.
The facilities, Clubhouse ladies bathroom was locked and had to find a door that was not locked to get to and both bathrooms were filthy with paper all over the floor, we expected more from the place,

Playing the best golf course in 50 miles ratio around Gainesvile

Amazing experience playing in the best golf course in Gainesville area.
I don’t need to drive south to play great golf anymore.
You can only play during the week. It would be great to have at least limited rounds on the weekend,
The fairways are in great conditions and greens in good conditions.
It looks very good since a new administration.

Great fun.

My son was home from the Navy on leave and wanted to play a round of golf with the old man. I went with him instead and showed him how the game is supposed to be played. We had great fun and made a few good memories. The carts were clean, the course was well maintained and the staff was great. We moved along well till the last couple of holes on the back but that could not be helped. The greens were fast and in very good condition. We also ran in to some other Golf Now guys and hooked up with one on the first tee. He had a good time too.
