Very Wet

It is not fair for to review this course now because Lakeland has been a lot of rain lately and the course was very wet. Part of the courses closed off because they too wet to play on. It's a 3 9 hole lay out so we were jumping different courses to get 18 holes in. Normally it's a great place when it's Dry

Great value

I am visiting from CA and have played here several times with my friend. The course is in awesome shape and the staff is exceptional. We have always finished in 3-31/2 hours. It is my “go to” coursed in the Lakeland area. 27 great holes!

Great Course

Cleveland Heights is a great course. It is in excellent condition tee to green. The staff are friendly and always accommodating. They have put in place several no contact changes to minimize risk to patrons. If you are in Central Florida or Tampa make the trip to Lakeland to play The Heights. It's worth it.

BC 7 26 20

A side was in good shape, greens were slow.

C side was ok. A couple of tees were almost bare. Greens just punched and not very good. Should be ok in a week or so.

Overall, good value for the money. I'll be playing again soon.

Thanks for the feedback Bob. We did green aerifications and verti-cutted tees over the past (3) weeks. As you know these maintenance practices must be done a couple times of year. Hope to see you back soon. Brock Witmyer (GM)

Greens are terrible

Greens and tee boxes are in really bad shape. Tee boxes are completely burnt and basically dirt. Greens are burnt punched and completely sanded. Love the course and have played here many many times. It’s just in bad shape right now. Staff is always great.

Thanks for the feedback. We did green aerifications and verti-cutting of tees during the first (3) weeks of July. We did A Course one week, B Course the next week and C Course the following week. We know that golfers do not like these maintenance practices, but they must be done a couple times of year. Please call me at 863-834-2379 and we can get you set up for cart fees on your next visit. Thanks again, Brock Witmyer (GM)

Great shape right now

Check in was a breeze and Dennis the starter was very nice directing me to C then B, great call Dennis. I was a single and got around in about 3 hours. Course is in great shape. Fairways are near perfect and the greens roll good just typical Bermuda, grainy. Pretty packed but got around relatively easy.
