Away day golf
We had a nice drive out to this course. Staff needs cue and friendly and course could be no cue if fairways and greens were in better condition
Course shows improvement
Greens and fairways are in good shape. Recent heavy rain has impacted hole 2 tee box, but rest of course is very playable and worth the $$$$.
Hole #2 is underwater
Overall, the fairways and greens are in better shape than I can remember in the past. However, hole #2 is partially underwater and is currently being played as a par 3 hole. This is a minor inconvenience and my hat is off to management & the groundskeepers for doing a good job dealing with the wet weather we are having.
Course was good fun. Like a lot of other courses suffering from the rain and speed of grass growth.. but look past this and a great well laid out course. 13th off the back tees is a great golf hole!!
Needs some serious care...
We've played here a couple of times in the past years. The staff was great!!! The tee boxes are horrible - over grown, fairways are pretty good, greens nice but very slow, bunkers are getting overgrown a couple were all green. The day started out HOT and then the rain came when we finished the 6th hole. Had to find shelter under one of the empty apartment areas for about 40 minutes. We were about to finish the 9th hole in the drizzle and then it start raining again. By the time we got to the cart house there was only our car. It's a nice laid out course but needs some serious maintenance.
For a “value” golf course Grenelefe is an excellent bargain. The greens are superior to most courses at this price range. The grass on the fairways and rough Is a little on the long side but I expect it is to keep it alive in the summer sun. I had not played Grenelefe for a while because the conditions had deteriorated. I’m glad I went back.
The course has a fabulous layout, far more interesting than most Florida courses.
It had been several months since our group played Grenlefe East and it seemed that there was a little improvement to the fairways, but they are still infested with crab grass and weeds. The greens are in pretty decent condition but are really, really slow.
What happened??? This coarse went down hill fast. Fairways are like playing in the rough. Greens were ok. Tee boxes looked like they haven't been cut in awhile.
golf course is in playable condition with slow greens.
Great old course layout
Needs work but fun to play, love old style design!'
1st of all...the nice people @ Golfnow "forgot" to let the Grenelefe staff know I had booked a tee time... Once we got that straighten out, it was clear sailing ! The greens are not like Southern Dunes ( the Gold standard ), but very putt-able....the fairways have a little " goose-grass" issue that needs to be addressed, & the tee boxes are "so-so"....overall, I'd give the course a " B- "....
A good bargain ! Greens a B+ to A-...Fast ? NO ! But very putt-able...Tee boxes OK, fairways a little rough in spots, but overall a good place to go for a relaxing round of golf...At 1:00, I was the only person in sight.
Unfortunately very poor condition
I'm not in the habit of writing negative reviews. However. Tee boxes and fairways are unfortunately in very poor condition. Even playing pick and place, finding somewhere to place is quite a challenge.
The greens were surprisingly good. OK There were some damaged and dead patches, but generally were in good shape.The two members of staff we met. Reception and the cart gentleman were both extremely friendly, and obviously trying to do their best in difficult circumstances. Those who know the history of Greenlefe will certainly realise that this is a once fabulous facility that in recent years has fallen on very hardtimes.
A huge shame, but I as a very unfussy, high handicap, senior golfer, I really could not recommend Greenlefe.
Good day of golf
Course design is good .Long holes are great
Greens not well groomed/maintained
No pressure to advance ,finished the second nine all alone
I had an awesome day, met wih great staff and others that were playing.
THE OVERALL COURSE WAS GOOD . THE GREEN REALLY GOOD KIND OF SPEEDY . THE FAIRWAYS ARE GETTING MORE GRASS ON THEM FROM THE PAST . THE TIME WE PLAYED WE SEEM TO HAVE THE COURSE BY OURSELVES WHICH WAS . A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL.
Very tired course. Fairways very poor, no grass. Greens ok. Needs a lot of work to bring this back to good condition. Pace of play was great, not busy course. Pity this was a great course in its day.
Course is in advancing state of decay and/or neglect. Probably was a great course at one time. Cheap rate explained it all, but could have played any other course for a better time. Won't be going back.
Grenelefe East Course
It rained all day, but considering the weather my game was not bad. This is a classic course from the 70's/80's, once a true test of golf. Currently the owner is not putting much money into this facility.
This course was hit by a severe hurricane some time ago!
I think he uses it for tax write-offs, but still come to play, even thou it has been abused. It is still not a bad place to play.
I dream a day that someone will come to the aid of this classic course......and bring it back to its
Don't let it die like Diamond Back across the street!
Enjoy your game!!
