Coming back

Last time I played the course, greens were terrible.
Was willing to try it again for the price. I’m glad I did.
There are still two or three greens that are not great, but the rest were pretty darn good. The fairways are ok and tee boxes are ok. Overall though the course was in pretty good shape.
The layout of the course is awesome and makes for a challenging round.
Would love to see more people support the course so that conditions can keep improving. If they can do that, I will definitely play here regularly.

nice layout

I like the layout of the course. The greens are coming back, but the tee boxes are terrible. The crew is working on the course, but i'm concerned with summer weather here that they may loose it completely.

It was so jay

This course was okay. The dry conditions could be seen in the fairways especially. The greens were in okay shape. The layout was challenging for a beginner like me. The course needs work but overall playable.

Tried the food for 1st time

The course is in better shape in May than the previous 2 months... fairways are in very good condition.. greens are improving and filling in and even the bunkers are in great shape. One minor complaint.... they water the greens during peak tee times! Seems they need to set the timers to let the golfers golf without interference.

The course is in pretty good condition. I would say that the greens are good, but not great, and run slowly. It's an interesting layout and worth the reasonable rate.

Not Bad

Course was in decent shape. Had a 0752 tee time. 6 foursomes had just teed off and they let my wife and I go off the back nine., Was a great round as we did not catch anyone all morning. Several tee boxes were mostly dirt, but fairways were in good shape. Most greens were OK as well.

Hidden Gem

Use to playing flatter courses in Florida but this was a surprise rolling fairways plenty of doglegs right and left. Plenty of blind shots and strategy to layup when you need

the layout of the course was great

the fairways were good for the dry condition but the greens left a lot to be desired there was one green on the front that was good and one on the back that was good other than you had no idea which way the ball was going to go after it hit the bare spots. Will not return.

Disappointing

Only 3 greens were putt worthy, the rest are in desperate need of repair. I don’t like writing negative reviews but when courses are struggling to stay open, at least be honest with your reviews. The positive reviews are why we gave this place a shot. Check in was a breeze, very nice customer service but that’s where the positives end unfortunately. The course is inundated with weeds, tee boxes are just terrible and again the greens are just sad. One and done for us out here, could see this place closing soon if they don’t reinvest and start getting more play.

Great day

Super staff and I love the nee Sunday brunch and really happy they started the twilight golf.
Fairways are in excellent shape and greens are really showing the work that was put in. Couple of teeboxes are starting to look rough and could use some work, but overall, it is the best course in the area for the price. I know because I have played them. It is my favorite course in the area and I will probably play there again this week.

Throwback

After a long drive from Kissimmee we were met with a very genuine "Hello" in the pro shop from Tyler. He made us feel very welcomed and gladly provided a few pointers about the course ending with a warning about the temporary green on #9 whle the old green is getting a makeover. At the turn he even asked how things were going. And later Tyler drove out to shut off the #14 fairway sprinklers that had come on by mistake.

While we agree with one criticism - poor green conditions - the layout is like going back in time to Florida's golfing heydey. Most of the fairways are wide and well kept with only a few bunkers to throw you off. The rough is mostly overgrown brush, dead trees and a few cactus (kind of like playing in Texas).

As you drive between holes you'll see piles of huge trees like they were cut down to make way for some type of development.

We enjoyed the pace of play as it seemed we were the only ones on the course on this Thursday afternoon. If we're in the area again we will be back.

Poor conditions

Avoid this course. Greens are horrible. One temporary green and there should have been several more temp greens. Traveled 22 miles based on value to play a 4 star rated course, big mistake. Will not play here again.

Rough Shape

We chose the course because it was rated 4 stars …. its is a 2 or less. The condition of the greens were horrible One hole had a temporary green and to be honest there should have been a few more temporary greens. Four of us played the course and all felt deceived by the rating. The price was great, but not so great to travel 22 miles expecting a 4 start track. We would not play it again.
