Nice little course.

This course is challenging enough. The staff is always very friendly. They keep the greens and tee boxes in very good shape. The fairways could be improved but the overall value is very good.

Just Like Lady Lakes

I feel sorry for the residents who have to play this course exclusively to justify their cost for living there or whatever. The greens are, I think, better than any greens in The Villages and the tee boxes are great....that said, everything else is terrible just like La** La*** Lin**. The restaurant was very pleasing with great food and everyone was super friendly but I will never go there for golf again.

Another Hot Day

Got a 11:12 tee time just in time for the heat to be on. All went good though with shade every once in a while. Overall nice day with some challenging par 3 holes. Will come back again some day when they have deals like this one. ccawalleye

Staff went beyond expectations

The layout is a little confusing but I'm sure when we go back we will have no trouble remembering which way to go. The greens were mostly fast and the only wetness we had was once it started raining on us. Thoroughly enjoyed the course and can't wait to go back.

Pretty disappointed

Although the course has had exceptional rain to deal with mostly to course seemed unkempt. Also, it was not revealed before booking that the whole back nine was closed. Several greens were in terrible condition, one was about 50% sand! Be careful before booking Water Oak online. Steve B.

Doing some good things

This course has been up and down through the years. Lately, it has been in good shape. The greens are good, but small. The fairways have always been a bit thin but they have put in effort to remove some of the big oak trees, to let more light into the fairways, and it is having positive results. We like the hills--some nice up and down fairways. Holes 1, 2 and 3 are a bit close together. Overall, it is a challenging course.

The course needs work on the grass. It is pretty spotty. They have airated, but need more grass growing.
