The course management is reconstructing all 18 greens so there are 18 temp greens for awhile. However, the temps aren't too bad and the overall condition of the course is excellent, as usual.

We’ve played here many times before and if the price is right, it’s been good. The course is under major reconstruction so its not fair to judge it as is currently. For $15 its fair value in it’s current condition with temporary greens and oversize holes but it was fun and was decent practice for wverything but putting as the greens are as you would expect for temporary greens. It was quiet so it was a quick but fun, run round the course as it was very quiet. The new GPS on the carts is rendered almost useless as the new greens are not in play but still of use as you can calculate from the info given. I look forward to the finished article later this summer.

We knew that the course was undergoing extensive alteration but the lack of tee choice made the course longer than we could play comfortably.

We have played here many times and enjoy the layout we will return again next year once the work is done.

The green buckets compensated for the quality of the temporary green.

Good luck with the changes

I have play Providence Golf Club before however, this is the first time playing it in 1.5 years. The staff is very friendly and professional however, the greens are the worse I have ever seen. It's like spray painted concrete! I hope they get this course back in shape. It's not worth the long drive from Orlando or Apopka to pay 33 bucks for such disappointing greens. Please fix this problem.

We were looking forward to playing Providence again as it is a while since we played it, when we arrived we were told that the front 9 were closed and the guy in the pro shop said the greens on the back 9 had been "killed". We were very disappointed with this as there was no indication when we booked of this if there had been we would not have played. The greens were slippy with the dressing they had put on them and as everyone was playing the same 9 holes it was quite busy. I wouldn't play this course again until all 18holes are on and that look like it will be a while.

I have played this course many times over the past few years. The course & greens are normally in good condition. I played the course a few days ago and the greens on the front nine were a complete disaster. I paid $35.00 and it was not worth $10.00. I know you get what you pay for; but at check in I was never told of these issues. When I finished I went & complained and was told that they are digging up all the greens in May. I was also told that I had to contact GolfNow for a refund as I had booked the round through GolfNow. I should have been told about the condition of the geens before going out on the course.

I have played this course many times and have never seen it in these unplayable conditions. I paid $35 and 15 greens were unplayable. They painted course to disguise conditions but all greens had bald spots throughout except for #3 because it was provisional. This course is needing mayor work so don't waste your money and time playing it.

We were extremely disappointed in our round at Providence and don't recommend playing this course until it has been improved. We weren't told when we booked that only the back 9 was open and had to be played twice. The greens were dead grass painted green and at least two of the tees were also dead. The course looked unkept and there were no workers out doing any work such as trimming. The fairways were hard and dry. Pace was extremely slow. I understand the greens are being redone but this was unacceptable. The course should show on Golf Now these conditions and restrictions.

I understand that renovations shall be taking place commencing April 30th… I presume the « greens » will be attended to as they do need a lot of love… but despite this the layout is awesome, the fairways really green & this pas Friday we almost had the golf to ourselves… just the two of us & we played in 3 hrs! Hope that when you do renovations you manage to put a washroom facility around the 13-14 hole as the only one on the 2nd nine is after 16 and its a portable.

Going home to Canada but we’ll be back next year!
