Course conditions were poor. Grass looks dead. Greens look painted. Carts have monitors but not gps. No cart girl on a sunny 80 degree day. Layout was really nice but the dead look and feel took away from it.

Response from Timacuan Golf on 02/09/2018:

We appreciate your feedback, and we would like to emphasize that here in Central Florida we are coming out of our winter period, where all of the Bermuda goes dormant. Our greens are not painted, that is the fertilizer that has a blue tint to it. The Greens are mini-verde and still very much alive, so they need constant food throughout the winter to not go dormant like the Bermuda right next to it. We hope you give us another shot soon.

There was no starter directing players to the first tee the day we played so it seemed like a free for all to begin. Once on the tee, Timacuan starts out with a fairly benign par 4 and follows it up with one of the toughest par 4s of the courses I've played in the area. If you pick the correct line over the first lake you'll find yourself in the fairway with a mid iron into a green that is protected on the front by a second lake. Navigate past the second and the tee shot on the par 5 third forces you to stay left toward the water in order to avoid the trees on the right. Survive this stretch and you begin to settle into a round that will require some well placed shots off the tee and onto the greens, but while challenging is very enjoyable.

We were told they had new greens that were quite fast. The practice green was a reasonable speed so I had an expectation that the greens might be fast but puttable. Unfortunate what I found was a bit of inconsistency in the speed of the greens from one hole to the next and generally on the slower side so I was usually short on my initial putts. In general, the putts rolled true and the greens are in very good condition.

We started as a twosome, behind a couple of other twosomes but after waiting for the group in front of us to hunt for balls on the second and third holes (they must have only brought a couple of balls considering the amount of time they spent search the ponds and woods on 2 and 3), we decided to join up with the twosome behind us since we were already spending a lot of time together waiting on the tee. Even as a foursome we kept up with the twosome in front of us and had a treesome behind right on our backs. At the end of the day, we spent roughly 4.5 hours playing which is not unreasonable.

At the turn there was a junior with her mother loading a bag onto a cart as we stopped to use the facilities since we knew we'd be waiting on the 10th tee. When we pulled up to the 10th tee there was the junior teeing off, while the 1st tee was wide open. They sped off the tee before we could say anything, only to find the group in front of us off to the left looking for balls and so we now had to wait for both groups. To the credit of the course, a call to the pro shop resulted in the junior being re-directed to the front nine where she was instructed to start from the beginning. Apparently the junior programs may be developing good golfers, but failing miserably in providing golfing etiquette awareness.

Overall, Timacuan is a good value for a course that will challenge your game early and then provide an enjoyable day of golf. We'll most likely be back again in the next few weeks to give it another try.

The course was so dry, hard, and fast it was kind of a joke. I like faster playing conditions but could not believe the amount of great chips and putts around the greens that just sailed by the hole and in some cases off the green. I hope this had to do more with the recent cold weather but I’ve played through every cold front and freeze this year and have not seen anything this bad. Felt like they should have been watering the greens inbetween groups like the ‘04 US Open at Shinnecock

Pace of play was horrible, not one ranger in sight. I wish more places took it as seriously as Orange County National does, they are usually all over it.

A lot of poor tee boxes

On cart Gps doesn’t give any yardages, why even have them?

I enjoyed the layout and course conditions the first time I played but for all the reasons given I won’t be back for a while. There are too many other places in central Florida (unfortunately pace of play is a problem everywhere).

This was the first time we played Timacuan. It's a beautiful layout. Greens were very fast, and a little hilly. Really liked the yardage book they provided. Our only complaint was that the fairways were somewhat bare and scorched.

BTW, the last five holes have tons of lakes and are really pretty tough.

Course usually plays long as most greens are plateaued up a little; greens rolled nicelyand course condition is good. Pace of play was a little slow, but mostly because the rest of guys in my group had to wait for at words to clear for drives & 2nd shots into par5s. My group probably had 7 birdies, which I did not contribute. I guess my only complaint would be the 60* no sun afternoon & poor iron play.
