Summer heat damaged but not too bad

Some of the fairways on the back nine pretty bare. Most greens in good shape. "Summer in Florida" !

Lonesome Dove

I played with my grandson— tee time was 11:40, we got there at 11:15 and the course was almost deserted. A couple of 4 somes at the turn. The girl in the pro shop was very friendly and told us we could go off when ever we were ready.
We played 15 holes and never saw another golfer, got chased off by lightening! That’s Florida.
The course is in great shape. All the work the new owners have put in shows.

Good but not good

The greens were pretty good about what they were when i played the course 6 weeks ago. The fairways were the problem alot of (BARE SPOTS) and grass was not as good as 5 weeks ago. Problem could be over seeded fairways dying out or something else. Cost to play golf now ok. Pace of play good. Hope they address the fairways they need some work.

Needs a little help

Great layout, greens were in good shape and fast. Tee boxes were pretty bad (played from the blue tees) and some fairway issues....but the price was under $20, so not bad for course management practice.

Ruff Going

Fairways and ruffs are needing care, removal of weeds and crab grass, Maintenance and care of the greens is the best part of this course.

Fair course for price!

For the price, this is a good course to play in the area! Played about a month ago when the greens were aerated and they look and play a lot better now. Fairways are dry, but it’s what you expect this time in Florida.

Long Course with Nice Greens

The greens are very nice and run a little quick. The greens are challenging and pin placement changes which adds to the difficulty. The fairways however were not the greatest and I never had a good lie, I always had to move it a bit onto some grass that I could hit off of. The amenities were nice. Will definitely return for another round soon.
