The course is fun and challenging. The tee boxes and fairways were in great condition. The greens definitely need some work. There is a mix of short and long holes. The overall experience here is good, but there customer service is poor. This place could be a real gem if they treated there customers better.

We have played Falcon’s Fire, Celebration, Oaks, Kissimmee and a few others in the area!

In our opinion… Providence was the BEST for course layout (especially the back 9 that is “in nature”), nice fairways & good greens! We certainly shall return. Thank you for a most enjoyable golfing day!

Greens very slow. Appeared to have been mowed but not closely.

Also made tee time thru GolfNow and confirmed tee time of 11:50. Got to course and they claimed it came thru as 12:14. Not a major deal but someone playing games. Irritating.

Once again this wonderful layed out course did not produce in terms of shape of course... The fairways were in very good shape .

The greens were much faster than the first time I played this course,,,but that could be because the greens had lost of bare spots on each and every green, which in turn made the ball roll faster....

I really can not figure out for the life of me why when courses charge around the $100 or so mark on a regular bases that they can not keep thier course up. No one wants to pay that kind of money to play on lousey greens or other unkept parts of the course....

YOU HAVE THE CHANCE TO HAVE A FOUR OR FIVE STAR COURSE IF YOU WANTED TO.. That's the reason I would not recommend this course to anyone ...

Layout is good. Lots of water down fairways and in front of a number of greens. Sand traps, tee blocks and fairways in excellent condition. Greens on the front 9 had many thin spots were you could see the ground. Back 9 was much better but still had issues. Putting was very slow but true. I'm sure they are working hard at getting the greens back to excellent shape.

Previous Superintendent did the green maintenance (over seeding) at the wrong time of the year. It'll take another month or so for the greens to be where they should be and where they usually are. Too bad this happened. Nice layout, everything (greens) usually in great shape.

Nice to be back in Orlando playing Providence again. Always look forward to playing here while I spend my winters here! Definately one of my all time favorite courses in the Greater Orlando Area. It's been a very cold first week of January so all the courses have suffered a little bit but overall the course is always in good to great shape. Looking forward to playing here a few more times before I head back north end of April!
