The course was under construction making the holes shorter, which was a bummer. But, it was a good course to play, and I would definitely play it again.
This was awful
First off the course is advertised as a par 69, we show up no one says anything and we get to the first hole to find out it’s a par 61. There was a warning about construction on greens when we purchased but nothing on the course being 2000 yards left than advertised. Worst of all the hole themselves were completely full of murky water. We left after the 1st hole and when we went inside to talk to the pro shop they acted like they could care less and like it was our fault for booking online with golf now. ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE. Avoid this course at all cost
Absolutely the worst golf course i have ever played at. Actually played 3 holes and left, it was that bad.
For starters the course is a par 62 and under 4000 yards (not a par 69, 6000+ yard course, as advertised on Golf Advisor, Golf Now, and 18 Birdies). They never mentioned greens were under construction, it was merely in the fine print when we booked it through Golf Now. However that wasn't the most upsetting part. The tee-boxes were complete mud, maybe 20% grass, if that. Greens weren't mowed in well over a week and the holes were filled with mucky water. Plus there was dead grass piled up with muddy patches in the green. They could at least rake the greens in the morning.
We left after 3 holes and asked for a refund because of the terrible course conditions and the false advertisement of a 6000+ yard course par 69. The 2 men in the pro shop did not care of our concerns. Acted as if we were fault for playing such terrible conditions and refused a refund.
We still left and played at Lansbrook Golf Course 100x better and friendlier staff.
I have never reviewed anything in my life but i felt so scammed today. I felt i needed to save others the trouble.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS. TERRIBLE COURSE. TERRIBLE MAINTENANCE. TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE.
Course is average size course with a little water play on several holes. ALL GREENS ARE TEMPORARY. just patches cut and sanded on the fairways.
It seems no attempt was made to make these temporary green useable. All are bumpy, lack grass and are equal to a cow pasture.
Visiting from Canada
We were staying in the area and were looking to play some golf. I read the reviews and was aware there maybe some construction.
The front 9 was much shorter than usual and the greens were not great. The back 9 was the normal length and the greens lighting fast.
When the construction is completed this looks to be an amazing course.
We had a blast and look forward to returning next year.
Great people doing great things for the community.
The course is under construction and will be for the next 3 months. Until then, it's playing much shorter with temporary greens. The staff is great and I will be back when they are done.
Course needs lots of work
Staff here is super friendly and very helpful. Lay out is unique . Big problem iscourse condition. Fairways are sparse but ok in general. Greens are dead. Nothing appears to be growing on any of them. They are as hard as a parking lot and trying to putt is frustrating to say the least. This is a fine organisation that does a lot of good for the community and The First Tee but the golf course itself need a drastic amount of work.
Course was in nice shape but the greens were pretty hard, like cement. Lightening fast greens. We played Friday because it was supposed to be Autism Awareness day at the course but we didn't see or hear any mention of it. 10th hole was extremely dangerous but the rest of the course was really nice. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.
This course is surprisingly challenging.
Be warned: I believe this course will be undergoing renovation soon during the summer (2018) and temporary greens will be in place. May want to hold off until they complete this.
Otherwise I had a great time here. I am long off the tee and had a hard time taking driver most holes. Its just very tight and tricky. I actually really loved the challenge this course offers even though on paper it is short.
The greens were rolling extremely well, it took me a few holes to get used to the speed after playing some of the courses in the area which are very slow.
The value is okay, if you're a budget golfer like myself definitely try and WALK if you can.
It was a great day playing golf with my father in perfect Florida weather on the Sunday of the The Masters.
some good greens maintenance has helped improve also fairways were well kept
A test of your patience.
Paid on line (golfnow) and received confirmation via e-mail only to get to course and find out they did not have a record of my confirmation. Staff was nice enough to tell me they would fit me in anyway. Called golfnow VIP special phone number ( I'm a paid. VIP member ) don't bother joining .I got nothing but lip service from them. They even had me listed for a different tee time than what the confirmation they sent me showed. Now about the course fairways were in good shape,greens rolled very true and fast. Only got to see the front 9after 3 1/2 hours decided to quit as did 2 others in my group. The course books with 3 to 4 minute intervals .
This course has a lot of sand...
This is a nice short course. It is fairly tight and it's main feature is that most greens are well protected with a lot of sand traps! Enjoy playing this challenging course.
Great course tough greens
The layout of the course the speed of play were all excellent
Found the greens were tough as most were domed with pin placement on top of the dome. As a result many balls were hit close to the pin but rolled down the other side or back to edge or even off the green. Very challenging..
Water, what’s that!
When spending a good amount of money to play a round of golf, you expect golf etiquette from the other players, and staff. The players did fine. Staff, not so much! They over book tee times, the starter doesn’t leave his cage to get people put in tee off time orders, 12:06 tee time and we started at 12:22 after getting to the first tee at 11:55. 5 1/2 hour round. We are willing to buy water on a 85° day, but they don’t have a cart going around the course to do that. All four water coolers empty on the course. I called the pro shop from each water cooler that was empty to let them know so they could get them filled, did they, NO! When I called them at the third water station with no water, their response was “maintenance went home”, and I said, “So, your paying customers need water, in a cooler since you don’t have a cart going around.”
Sorry Chi Chi but I will not be back to play golf here.
The corse is in good shape. The greens were well kept. Good value for the money.
