I’ve played this course In 2019 when it was in pathetic condition. This yr it is much better and fairways not nearly as bad as other recent reviews indicated. Greens a little slow but we’re smooth and consistent. For the price it is worth the drive to play.
Nice course- great potential
As previous reviewers have noted, fairways and tee boxes rough. in some places. Greens were very good and rolled true. Great layout. Teed off as a single at 7:15 and didn't see many golfers at all. Finished in 2 hours. pro-shop and cart guys were very nice and helpful. Seems open and easy but EVERY time I missed the fairway, I was behind a tree (very strategically placed) For the money not bad - greens make up for the tees and fairways. If they had some maintenance, could move to the head of the class with its layout
Greens...excellent! Teeboxes and fairways could definitely use some tlc, but it is tough to maintain central Florida courses.
It’s a Donald Ross course so the layout is nice. The course has tons of potential but needs a lot more attention to bring it back. Fairways had way too many bald patches, and greens were super slow. The course is laid out well and very fair, not overly tight from the tees. Not a very busy course in the afternoon so played in just over 3 hours. Staff were all super friendly, and valve for the price was very reasonable.
Very sad to see a Donald Ross in such horrible condition. Design is great, everything else is really really bad. Greens were spongy & slow. Fairways are burnt out all over the place. I hate a place were you hit good shots and get punished by course conditions. I would not return even if it was free!
Grainy greens but playable
Check-in was a breeze course was a ghost town, hot as heck. Fairways are ok, weeds are an issue in places. Areas around the greens more weeds. Greens are ok just really grainy with some weeds and slow. Bunkers have decent sand but weeds there too. I like the layout and the service here is always very inviting. Good place to get a round in. Nothing on the course regarding water or beverage cart.
Lake Wales C.C....
Condition-wise, Lake Wales C.C. is going "down-hill"..Tee boxes bare is lots of spots, goose-grass 6 in. long in others...Fairways overall, semi-poor...The greens over-all, s-l-o-w, but OK....
This is a Donald Ross layout and has all the bite and reward you want in a course design! And that’s it!
Green have no weed”a plus” but roll at about a 2!!!
Fairways are weeds upon weeds upon more weeds! Can’t tell where the fairway is!
$25 is a ok rate but there is no way I’m coming back!
The amount of $$ to get the fairways playable at minimum is never happening in the area this tremendous layout sits!
Greens ok fairways lots of weeds
Definitely playable. Typical Bermuda greens slow and grainy. Fairways and rough are well, rough. Pretty much all weeds but playable. Customer service here is outstanding that’s pretty much why we keep coming back. Not awful but not great but again, playable. We enjoyed the day.
Had a Great Timeline
We used the “Golf Now” app to reserve and pay for 9 holes for a party of 4. Everything went smooth and flawless from the time we did the reservation until golf cart turn in. Would definitely go back.
First time playing this course and I was pleasantly surprised .
The young lady in the pro shop greeted us with a pleasant smile. She was very sweet and nice showing us around and ready to go The. fairways and rough were a little dry as are most courses right now but certainly playable. Some Tee boxes were being repaired and a little dry but all were LEVEL and no problem for my buddy and I. The GREENS are most important to us and we had lots of sweet birdie and eagle puts and no complaints about TRUE roll. They roll right where you hit them! The GREENS were EXCELLENT and I will certainly return and play here again. Thank you Lake Wales for your excellent hospitality!
The greens were great. The fairways and tee boxes were very disappointing. They really let this place go. Had to contend with sprinklers on 3 of the last four greens. Who does that?
The greens are in excellent shape. Fairways and rough are in good shape. Tee boxes are in bad shape.
Read a review from two weeks ago, and almost didn’t play the course. The course is in good shape. I’m glad I played it. Fun course with a good layout. Lots of bunkers. Will definitely be playing again.
Remove countryclub from the name. Greens are ok. I spoke with resident during the round who said they had over seeded and hot weather hit and not enough water. I went into the clubhouse after the round to return a small cooler not complaining but made a comment about maybe the overseedind and unexpected weather and she became very defensive saying that good golfers like tight fairways and you are teeing up on the tee boxes anyway. And people will complain the rough is too high a a few months. Your facilities are still run down and the homeowner that I spoke to says the restaurant is rarely open. Be open minded and get an investor and make what it can be and quit being defensive. I was told that she is part of the family of owners. Again I may play again at some point but it will through golf now if it is cheap.
Regular, well playable course with no special challenges
Played as twosome and the pace was very good – 3 ¼ hours. Tee boxes and fairways need some attention. Bunkers were not in play today. Greens are really very nice, though a little slow, but true. Staff at the pro shop very cordial, but golf gloves are really very expensive - $25 for one is rather upper level!
Overall it is a good place to go, but you can find courses in the surrounding for lower rates…
