Great executive course.

If you are in the Kissimmee area with the family and can't spare 5 hours on a round play here. This is a 9 hole executive course. It plays like a par 3 on six hours, but on three tees most will need a driver or fairway. Challenging course that you can easily play in 2 hours. Next time I'm in town I'm planning to play a round here before we head to some of the parks.

Great little course for novice or higher handicap players

I took my 4 yr old son and my 74 yr old father in law out on this track. It was perfect for both. One learning to play the game and the other in twilight of his game. Tee boxes were in tough shape (chewed up and over sanded). Carts didn’t have enough sand to fix divots In Fairways or tee boxes (when they needed it). Overall it was a fun course though.

Nice Course for Fast Nine

I have played this course many times over the past 10 or more years. The course was in good shape. Fairways and greens were good. Pace of play was great. I recommend this course for anyone who is looking to play a fast nine holes or playing with beginners.

Wasn’t worth the time finding it!!

Address that was emailed to us in our confirmation brought us to a dead end. After returning back to main gate of this huge development and running into a registration office we were told to go to another entrance! To make a long story short we asked three more people where the course was and finally directed to a marketplace area where the name of the course was in small print at the bottom of the sign. It was a lot of hassle to play nine holes. No interest in playing or finding it again!!

I've played it a lot because I like it.

The course starts out like it's going to be simple on #1 and #2.. #3 surprises you. #4 may be one of the toughest 4-par hole around (and look out for the gators), and then #5 is a tougher 4-par. #6 is a give you no breaks, angled 3-par. #7 is a straight-away longer 3-par, the only hole with no water. #8 can grab you like #17 at Sawgrass. #9 is one long, tight and tough 4-par with a small, well-trapped green.

Won't Play Again

I was visiting the area and only had time to play 9 holes. The condition of the course was good but having so many par 3 holes I only used my PW and Putter which isn't much fun for me. I also felt like the pace was pushy. This is truly just a tourist course and not for me.

Very good par 3/4 track

Condition of this course was above average for time of year. Some challenging holes with strategic hazards will test the skills of most golfers. Could not beat the price for a Sunday morning.

Could be very slow

Scenery is very good. Course condition is fair. It could be a nice 90 minute golf if the pace is decent. Expect to skip one hole if you play behind some very old folks. It is not their fault; you are just unlucky that day.
