Staff was friendly, greens were good, fairways good, tee boxes were all in good shape. For the money it is one of the best options in Orlando. Pro shop and restaurant were nice as well. Range is nice. Highly recommend.

Cut my round short after the 12th hole. Temperature was 92 & felt like 100 per Weather Channel.

This has happened once before due to heat/humidity and pace of play that day.

I only place the front 9 that day.

This was a standard middle of Florida course. Lots of water. Good layout. Greens didn’t look great but they did roll very well. No complaints there. Fairways could use some work. Biggest issue was pace of play. 4 hours and 45 mins is unacceptable. It was a busy Sunday. We teed off 1130. The starter was all over everyone’s butt to keep on time. We played hole 1 and there was an immediate backup on 2 tee. The starter was the last employee we saw until club cleaner on 18 green. Not a ranger to be found all day. Other than that place was OK. I would go back again but $30-$35 would be about max price for me.

Course is in as good if not better condition than others in the area. Staff is friendly. I played as a single and at times felt like I had the entire course to myself. Greens are in good shape. A little more expensive than some other courses around but worth the extra money.

After a recent visit there seem to be a lot more golfers than in the past around mid-day. Perhaps it is a reflection of better course conditions whether you look at the fairways or the greens. Some wise participants suggested I move ahead to either no 2 or no 3, as the tee time I received kind of coincided with some skin games about to begin. Did proceeded to no 2 as recommended, then played no 1 immediately after completing no 9. Then, résumer the normal round. Enjoyed very much the last four holes where water comes into play. Even on no 18, thought my drive ended up in the water left of the tall trees but was happy to find I was inside the red line by about two yards, which seemed like a lucky short to the approach to the green. Awesome practice facilities will bring me back to this course yet again at my next visit in central Florida.

Finally getting a chance to play some regular golf (for me, 4 rounds in 3 weeks), I've seen the gauntlet of courses. Timacuan, although not quite to the level of the elite courses, isn't far behind. Staff great, course challenging ,greens excellent. A little dry in spots but fairways were, for the most part, decent. There is some truth in the old saying " you get what you pay for" but on my modest budget I have to pick and choose when & where I can get those "gifts". Not mentioning courses I've paid low prices and got dry, numerously dry conditions where it seems management seems reluctant to invest money for improvements. I was able to treat myself to OCN where conditions were beautiful and round was enjoyable. Timacuan is just a step below but way above what you can experience in & around the area (From east coast to outskirts of Orlando) . Having not played it in a few years I am happy to say I enjoyed the total experience & will return within the next few months for another solid round of customer friendly golf. It's a great choice for those who want to play a round with great conditions at a fair price.

Although I live forty five minutes away, I try to come to Timacuan as often as I can. The staff is very professional and welcoming, and always wish you good luck before your round. The facilities are also top notch. But the best part is the course itself. it is one of a kind. Whomever designed hole two should be given an award. But there are plenty of other holes that are unique. greens are fantastic though. some fairways could use more grass but I still rate it a ten. Jim Varsalone
