Nice test, choose tees wisely

Best Hotdeal so far. Played poorly from whites, 3rd rd in 2yrs though so looking fwd to getting back out when I've stronger striking! Based on recent playing habits, this op is skewed.

Awesome Value!

First time playing this track and wow, it’s awesome. Big ponds to hit over with some narrow landing areas for the risk takers made this course a blast to play. Conditions were pretty good with some slight standing water leftover from the heavy rains, but nothing I’d say is worth less than the 5 star rating. The staff are definitely top notch. There was an issue with my tee time getting moved to a different date and they said no worries and completely helped me out! I can’t wait to go back again! If you’re in the area, I highly recommend it!

Course progressing nicely ....

fairways are excellent - good grass under your ball, very few tight lies. Greens still show signs of 'plugs' from a few weeks ago - should be in great shape in another couple of weeks.

Getting Better

I must say the course was much better than the last time I played it a few months ago. It looks like they are putting some money back into the course. They still have work to do but I enjoyed the day and would recommend the course again. The greens are good (spotty in some areas) the fairways actually had some grass on them as compared to the last time I played it. Go for it you will enjoy.

Very disappointing

Let me start off by saying I never write reviews and by no means am I a scratch golfer, country club member. I shoot high 80’s. After playing this course yesterday I was so disappointed that I just had to. The staff were very nice and attentive. That was the only good thing about the course. No range balls at the time I showed up. 1:00 pm. How could you not have range balls. The putting green was terrible, which helped for the greens on the course because they were equally as bad. The tee boxes were all long and half of them had pine needs everywhere. I mean it looked like a decent course once upon a time. Nice layout with some challenging holes. But this is a case of an old course left to die. They spend all their money on remodeling their bar area and forgot what actually brings people to to play golf. If you’re just looking to hack it around with some buddies sure I’d waste your money but if you’re actually looking for a decent golf experience stay clear.

Nice course but conditions average at best

I really like Timacuan. The course winds around a lot of water and is beautiful. The bar/lounge is great - it has a modern flair to it. Pro shop is good. Driving range, although never used it, looks quite nice. Golf carts are very good and come with GPS for those that don't use their own.

Now comes the part which brings this review to average. If it wasn't for the things described above, this would have been a 2 star rating. The greens are in bad shape. What really irked me yesterday is that they are lightening fast but the conditions of them are poor. Your ball hops along it's path. I had several puts yesterday putting over crab crass. I actually like fast greens when they are in good shape. These are not. They are bare, bumpy, and crab grass infested.

The fairways are not in any better condition. Many bald spots throughout the fairway and very thin. I had to hit several shots yesterday basically in the dirt - and that's when my ball was right in the middle of the fairway! I like to play my ball usually without touching it or giving it a better lie. However, yesterday was the first time in a long time where I felt okay picking my ball up when it was in the fairway to place it on a decent lie.

I still enjoyed my round but it was quite frustrating at times. My greens in regulation % was lower yesterday - not surprising due to the conditions of the fairways. Also, the tee boxes aren't any better. The disappointing thing is with the conditions as they are, I payed about $12 more than I do at RedTail, Black Bear, Victoria Hills, and others. There is absolutely no reason that Timacuan should be priced where it is. If the condition of the course was much better, then I can see it but not right now. It will be a while until I return. Just can't justify the expense.

Better than Expected

After reading recent reviews I was not expecting a great day at Timacuan. I am not sure why these reviews have been so critical as I really thought the course was great value. It is a very good layout with lush fairways. Greens were not as good as some but were in no way as bad as some have made out. The back 9 plays more tricky as water comes more in to play. Clubhouse facilities are excellent with a nice modern bar area available to watch sports on tv.
I would not hesitate to return for another game so do not be put off by other reviews

Going downhill

This was a nice course for most of its history but not so much any more. Fees are ridicules, while the course is in disrepair. Got two tee times but couldn't get more than four people from my 24 golfer group to play due to costs and conditions. $49 for a dried out PUNCHED GREEN course. The only players to play all had coupons they were sorry they bought. We won't be back any time soon. What a shame.

It has seen better days

The course maintenance has significantly eroded. What was once a premier golf course is now at best average. Greens badly maintained. Fairways drying out and brown. Me and my three teamates were very disappointed with the conditions. Though we keep a good pace with a foursomes almost all the players behind us were twosome that were pushing us - we let at least five twosome by which caused us to play a slower round waiting for them to pass us - somewhat annoying. Better courses in the area with better pricing.

Too many other better options...

I hadn't played this course in a while, so we thought we'd give it a try. Greens were horrid to put it mildly. I don't think I had one putt today that didn't hop like the Easter Bunny, We also went 18 holes on a Sunday morning without a single visit from the bev cart. We had lunch in the grill after our round.
Food wasn't bad, wasn't good, but wasn't terrible. Service was top drawer. Might have been the highlight of the round. All in all, I was disappointed.

Declining Conditions

For the past 5 or 6 years Timicuan has had the fastest and probably the best greens of the public courses in the Lake Mary area. No longer. There is a lack of healthy grass on the greens, perhaps caused by a fungus. Someone in the clubhouse blamed the course conditioning problems on an electrical problem, which effected their watering system. Fairways are in the worst condition I have ever seen them at Timicuan.
Greens are still fast but not as true as in the past. I still enjoy playing the course as it has a nice layout, especially the back nine. There is a lot of work to be done to get this formerly nice course into good playing shape again.

Disappointed!!

We played this course several years ago, we were so disappointed when we returned. Tees poor, fairways poor, greens terrible. Pace of play slow, no staff to monitor tee times 2 groups went off in front of us with tee times after ours. We will never return to this course. On the day of the visit there was a group of lady members in a competition who were rude and arrogant due to the mix up of the reserved tee times. The only redeeming feature was the staff in the clubhouse.

Timacuan draining down.

5 years ago Timacuan got new greens and the course was perfect and value for money. Today it is a trash course. No staff, greens bad an to fast, fairways unacceptable, boxes in big minus. There was one guy offering club cleaning after 18 holes. He should be going around and do some significant job. The grass is terrible and un maintained. Go somewhere else.
