worst golf course !!

where to begin . the course has weeds on the greens (crab grass) . Sand spurs in the traps , grass. some greens have no grass with all the rain we been getting . there is no excuses . overall probably the last time we play this course it has turned for the worst . would not recommend this course to play . The Greens were aerated and were horrible to put on with crabgrass on the greens

Needs lots of work

Hit the fairway and grass hides the ball. Spent way to much time searching for balls that should be easily visible. And dead center on 2 and could not find the balls!!

Needs work but good course.

Was in bad need of a cut. Had a difficult time locating balls hit on the fairway and approach areas.

Not friendly staff/starter

I had a tee time for 11:56 am. I checked in with the front desk and arrived early. I went to the 1st tee at 11:30 and while warming up, the same man (with an accent) drove out to the tee to tell me I could not tee off until 10 minutes before my tee time. I could understand this IF it was busy, but there were only 3 cars in the parking lot, of which, 1 was mine. I complied with the starters wishes. I never saw any golfers the entire 18 holes. When I finished, my vehicle was the only one left in the parking lot. I enjoy the course, but apparently the man at the front desk was well trained by the owner/management to not allow anyone out early under any circumstances.

Great course!

For mid July in Central Florida, this is one of the best courses I’ve played recently! Greens were beautiful except 1 on the back nine.

Nice course

His is a very nice short course, but had been recently aeriated and many greens were very rough. Several had extremely dry patches. Under healthy conditions it is a challenging course.

Sunday round

Made a tee time at this course without reading the layout details. Didn't know it was a short course. Par 4s were interesting and so were the whole course. Challenging par 5 was last.

decent course for the money

First time playing this course and I don't have anything other than The Villages courses to compare it to. Course took a little time to get used to. Cart paths were just dirt and directions from the clubhouse were non-existent. Once we were on, it was OK. Greens were fast, fairways were OK in some parts, not so good in others. Everyone gets their own cart - no exceptions. Best price around for afternoon play. Hardly anyone else on the course. We started about 3 pm and finished 18 holes by 6. No rush and we took our time.

Fairways were all in relatively good shape, including the front nine greens. However, the back nine greens were in bad shape; a lot of rough areas and no grass.

Hot Day, but good play

We played in an afternoon time. It was HOT! However the price was great and we played pretty well. Front nine was quick with no one in front of us. Back nine however had a group that teed off on the back in front of us and played as a fivesome. Hope that never happens again.
They were SLOW obviously. We may go elsewhere next week.

Descent fir the money

Not bad for the money if you get a Hot Deal. Some of the greens were mostly dirt with little grass that just messed with the ball trajectory. Too many par 3s, which attributes to the low course par score. But with some tree placements in front of the tee box, it was a difficult course to manage.

Got behind a slow group today...ruined pace of play

Got behind group of 3 players and an additional woman who was with them and walking most holes until she finally caught up iwith the players. What a pain. she
also had a dog with her on a leash. This is a golf course, not a dog park. Hope it never happens again.

Also all cup sleeves had been raised and we didn't know why until we got done with our round. Someone in the shop should have told us why. Actually it was a good idea, but the worker who was doing it was doing all holes starting with #1. We had to wait for him on several holes and that also slowed our round. That should have been done before the play for the day.

Good round, had fun, great staff friendliness

Service was great. A few of the greens are not so hot now as the ove-rseeded grass is dying out. Otherwise all was fine. I played lousy on front nine and shot 41. Came back to life on back 9 and shot 39, for totql of 80. I always like shooting my age or better *84). Course is a good value still.
