They don't honour their Tee 0ff times

Arrived 30 mins early and lined up with 2 groups on front of us at scheduled tee off time. All of a sudden 3 other groups showed up from league play and indicated they had priority. After 30 mins of waiting past our tee - off time we decided to ask for a refund as we were going no where and still were waiting for groups that had earlier tee-off times to tee-off. If you book a time they should honour it and not have tournaments at the same time that you booked a game. I got a voucher for a future game but what about wasting our time, gas and inconvenience

Golf

Decent course for the money, had a 5 cart group off the first tee. The starter allowed us to start on the back-very appreciative of that. Tee boxes were average to poor. Some fairways pretty rough as well. The greens were in really decent shape. I would say that we would play this course again.

Much improved since last played

Have avoided playing here because of poor condition of the fairways in the past. Came today since most courses were closed on Christmas.
Pleasantly surprised by condition of the greens. Fairways much improved, but still thin in many places.
Bunkers hard packed - like a tight lie.
Would come back.

Spruce creek preserve is in awesome shape. I love the layout. Makes you work the ball both ways. Tree lined fairways are beautiful.

Course is improving.

New management is making headway with improvements. Most tee blocks and greens much improved. Fairways still a work in progress. Could use a marshal on the day we played as the foursome in front were very slow, at least 3 holes free in front of them. Very friendly staff. Newer quiet gas golf carts. Will come again and hope improvements continue.

Do they ever mow the fairways or greens?

Terrible conditions! Tees, fairways and greens appeared as if they hadn't been cut in a while. It also appears the blades on mowers in areas that may have been attempted to be mowed were not sharpened. Someone is providing this course 5 star ratings. Please do not believe these ratings. It is at best a 2 star golf course. As a 3 handicap and a person who has been in the golf business trust me this course needs better maintenance. I liked the layout but hated the conditions. Burn me once shame on you but guess what if I were to go back and be burned again then shame on me. That won't happen. I hated to give such a poor rating but the course ownership didn't hate taking my green fees.

Continuous improvement

Been playing here for over 4 years. It was once a showcase course and was let go to the point of “almost a cow pasture”. New owner is continuously improving the course and it’s coming back nice. Greens are mostly good, fairways are decent . A couple of tee boxes need some work, but each time I play I can see the results of the efforts and maintenance!
