Course is very “soupy”. Water drainage is an issue as balls hitting the fairway on most holes were not bouncing or running but hitting and sometimes buried. Not a lot of hazards but on the course, trying to miss the wet areas was the hazard and challenge.
Return to Gator Lakes
I have moved away for almost 6 months and this is my first round there in many months. I was extremely pleased with course conditions and and the new mowing habits around the greens. The fairways were beyond what I could have imagined 6 months ago. The grass replant took hold and looks great. As always the staff in Golf Shop and Grill were are very professional and friendly. I will play the course over and over each time I am back in the area. Great job to Gator Lakes Management.
Course waiting for new irrigation
Drove all the way from Panama City Beach and was disappointed. We were not told until after round about the fairways being dry and bare in some areas because of upcoming irrigation replacement.
Good price for Snowbirds only $3 more than military.
My disappointment came from always hearing Air Force had better course conditions than the Navy.
Gator Lakes is the best value in the area
This course is a favorite destination of mine. I can reliably knock out 18 holes in 4 hours every time I play here. the staff is so exceedingly friendly, it's a joy to come back. the pro shop has great equipment at a really affordable price. Its a joy to share the course with the Air Commandos in the area, and it is now open to the public and the greens are really strong. Passpollum grass.
Not a real golf experience
This course is very boring with extremely slow greens and no elevation. All the holes look the exact same. The fairways are less than mediocre and there is no rough, just roots and sand. Worst golf value on the emerald coast. It feels and plays like a bush league course.
Challenging, fair and beautiful...
This my favorite golf course. And a very beautiful course.Very challenging. You will earn your score on this course. If you score well on this course you can score well anywhere. Look for wildlife. The knocks I have for this course are that you have to have access to Hurlburt Field, so I have to go there with my military friends. And there seem to be more walkers on this course then average, which sometimes slows play. But I do love this course. We play this couse a couple times a month.
