Good fairways, smooth greens. New carts with electronic scorecards and maps. Players should be better to repair ball marks and divots.
Providence is in reasonable condition. Nice layout with very firm greens that produce a hollow sound when balls hit them. Quite unusual given that the pace of putts was slow. Would benefit from a course attendant to keep pace of play moving. Even though we had an early morning tee time, we had several waits and playing time was about 4 1./2 hours.... too slow in the estimations of my playing partners and I.
An intersting course in really good condition
We booked a hot deal so got a great deal at this course. 6 fairways over-seeded so cart path only but this did not spoil our enjoyment.
Good layout with a good variety of holes. New greens which were a tad slow but rolled true.
So good we’re playing again next week.
Only negative point was that some fairways were very wet, can't really blame the course for the weather!!!!
Greens are absolutely outstanding.
Course is Fantastic
Golf course is in great shape and it is a great value for the rate. We played at 2:00 so not many people there but overall the place was great
Played the blues and the course was amazing! Greens were perfect.
Jerry at Pro-Shop very professional
Course in great shape, all around. Many fine changes since last year. I wish I I the Doe-Re Me to join.
Fun. But new greens are rock hard
Like the course and layout. Very challenging. Hard to hold the greens currently. Need some time to get softer. Lots of carries. High handicappers will be frustrated with this course due to lots of long carries to the greens. Not easy to run up.
Golf Now not welcome
The golf was good and we played with a lovely couple. The staff however were rude both in pro shop and bar. Didn’t seem to like the fact we had booked with golf now and although the course was very quiet had to wait until the very minute of our tee time. Not a problem, we had a drink in the bar but the staff there were just as bad. Not welcome, so won’t be going back!!!
If you plan on playing here during the weekend, check wth the pro desk to see if there are any large groups going out ahead of you. We didn’t check an ended up behind a men’s club that took 5 1/2 hours to complete their round. I understand why a course wouldn’t want to volunteer that kind of info, but they’re doing a disservice to other golfs and will eventually pay the price for their lack of Marshals and regard for regular paying customers. We won’t be back, because there are too many other great courses in the area that manage their courses better. Player beware!
Always play when visiting
Always play when visiting Orlando. I like the course. Greens have been upgraded but they are updating tee boxes right know Whites playing with reds for the most part a couple of times with black. Blues back with black so take that into account. Always a good time like the course.
Well… would be a very nice course with very good greens, BUT!
Let me start with the two positive things – layout is very good, some holes are pretty challenging. The (new) greens are very good, rather fast and true.
BUT – there is a lot of negative to say:
We arrived earlier and there was no one playing, but the starter let us wait for more than a half an hour – this could be explained by directives given to him. But he did not tell us the pin position nor told he (or someone at the Pro Shop) us that instead of 4 different tees (on the score card), only two were allowed to play – the tips (black about 6900 and the front red about 5000 yards). The blue (6300) were added to the black and the white (6000) mostly were at the red. So the course played either very long or very short!!! Additional to that on some tee boxes the black were at the very end of the box with almost no grass and the red were mostly in the front with no grass too!
Fairways are many places like mud covered with a little grass. The place is by far too wet. Bunkers have partly too much or too less sand and were not maintained. The only restroom at the No. 5 was not cleaned at least for one day – trash full etc. No restrooms at the back nine. The carts have very nice GPS, but it is not running and the screen is placed at the driver’s side so badly, that you have to watch out not to “bang” you head on it every time you get to the cart. There is a ball washer on every cart, but ours had water in it that was not changed for weeks (really stinking). The box with sand to repair divots was almost empty. No one out on the course to watch the play, so on most greens there were many unrepaired pitch marks.
It is really a shame. I played the course many times since the opening, but it is steadily going down. It does not deserve it as it is a very nice course. And just having new excellent greens is not enough to improve…
We did not enjoy the round very much, although we played as a foursome with two very kind gentlemen. With all these points mentioned above I can not recommend the course at the moment. Don’t understand how someone can rate these course conditions as excellent… see here bellow!
Good course. Nice layout
Course is in pretty good shape but soft from rain some no run out on shot. So plays longer then you would expect based on the yardage. Greens are new and are hard to hold. They roll nice but do not break as mush as you’ll read.
Beautiful golf course-great value
Golf course was in great shape and perfect day to play. Greens are very nice. A few Fairways were a little wet and muddy but overall a fantastic course for the money.
What a joke
Tees were moved all the way back or all the way up. You either played at 7000 or 5000 yards. No mention of this online or in the pro shop. .The pin was missing from the 2nd green. The 7th tee box was mud and weeds. That's when I decided to leave and never go back..
