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.

First Time Playing

Good course

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.

Improving

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.

Slow Greens

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.

Ouch

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.

Grenelefe East

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- "....
