surprised

I played this course about two years ago, but since then they have really improved the whole experience! Nice having a office to check you in and a cart girl to bring your cart. The best part was the condition of the greens - they were wonderful. Lots of grass and they rolled very nicely. They tee boxes were fine, some of the fairways were mostly dirt (on the back nine) but overall there was grass to hit off.
Will return for another fun round.

WOW what a transformation from last year

Have played this course for the past seven yrs whilst on holiday - can't believe the improvement always been a great layout but now you have good lies on the fairways good greens and the signs of a real quality course emerging from what looked like a course that was on its last legs . unfortunately our round was cut short at hole number twelve the skies opened up and the rain came down with thunder and lightning to follow . So we escaped back back to the clubhouse for a coffee the weather was set to stay so we will return for the back nine later in our holidays keep up the good work.Looking forward to our return visit cheers Colin

Great Value. Better than expected.

Great value round. Great service, nice course and added novelty of waterskiiers. Some nice holes over water with forced carry. Course was in good condition, some patches of dirt but not a big thing. Very impressed for the cost and much better than expected. Will try and return.

Fun track!

What a fun course to play! Fairways are not perfect but greens hold their lines. Water skiing at its best between the holes, makes it super fun. I will play there again, it's worth the commute.

Really Great Value

This course is a great value. Layout is fantastic. Fairways are solid and greens as well. Greens aren’t perfect but you won’t be blaming any missed putts on the putting surface.

Of course you can pay $50 and go play somewhere pristine, but this course is a great play. Will 100% be back.

This is going to be one of my local spots moving forward.

Hidden Gem

Awesome course to play. Yesterday was extremely windy so it made it quite difficult. Great layout though. Greens were extremely fast and well maintained. Gas powered carts so you don't have to worry about a dying battery by the 2nd 9. Had a great time. Will be back soon

Best in Clermont

Staff is super friendly! Course demands your attention, hard but fair. I agree in some spots the grass is thin. If you visit the Clermont area this gem is our best bang for your buck.

A Wonderful Public Course

What a great course. We player here years ago and thought the layout was good, but condition was poor. The new owner has done wonders. We come to Clermont for golf twice a year and SF's greens are the best we've seen in several trips. This is now our #1 course. With so many courses in and around Clermont closing, I really hope this one can succeed.

Great round!!

Very friendly staff! First impression was not great, but after first hole, conditions improved. Tee boxes could use a bit of maintenance, but fairways, traps and greens were in good shape. Really enjoyed the layout!! Not an easy course. Great wildlife and fun to see handgliders and waterskiers. Bought some sale items in proshop. All around, a great day out!!

Very nice layout and great ataff

Awesome course and wonderful staff. Even kid riding bunker cart was very friendly. Grass is a little sparse in spots this time of year but hey roll the ball a little. Par 3s are long and tough and never ever had to let a speedboat pass before teeing up. We will for sure go back. Plus got a friendly dog Mulligan who will lick your hands off when u r having a beer or two after round. Best to book with course direct and save some money

Really enjoy this Golf Course

I’m a snowbird from Canada, and have been playing here off and on for about 20 years. This winter the course has been in the best shape that I have seen. I’ll definitely be back next winter. Great course for all skill levels, and very playable. Would suggest blended tee from about 6000 yds. I find # 10 and #18 a little long, but otherwise reasonable.

Great deal, nice course.

Played Sunday morning at 854. A solid 4 hour round. Last nine got pretty hot.
No issues with the tee boxes, fairways or greens. Signage is a bit lacking, as is identification of range and practice green locations.
You need a navigation system in your vehicle to find this place. Not one sign until you get there :).
No snow like back home :) thanx
