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.

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- "....

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.

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.

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

former self!!!!

Don't let it die like Diamond Back across the street!

Enjoy your game!!

We really enjoyed golfing at Grenelefe, the staff was friendly and helpful, always answered with a smile.

The course was if very good condition and was challenging for us, which we enjoyed. Have recommended to friends. We look forward to playing the course again.

Greens have huge bare spots, fairways have large areas with no grass. Most all tee boxes had no grass only a little weed patch here and there. This is not due to lack of rain but lack of maintenance.

Some people rate this course highly and some rate it as terrible. Let me try to clarify. If you paid over $20 you were ripped off. This course is in poor shape but as the saying goes you get what you pay for so do not expect a great course for $20. The pro shop staff I engaged with was disinterested, the cart guy didn't put my bag on the cart. I had to do it myself, so not really sure his purpose other than to hand out the cart key. This along with the shape of the course places it clearly at the 2 star level. So if you are ok with a course in poor shape then pay your $20 and enjoy the course for what it is.
