Rather short but partially tricky…

Were paired with a couple from Canada and had an enjoyable round. The pace was good – 4 hours. Tee boxes and fairways may need some attention, but are playable. Bunkers are mostly OK. Greens are good too, though some places missing a little grass, but have a good speed. Staffs were very cordial and helpful.
Overall it is a good shorter course and worth the drive from Orlando.

Very tight. Not too long. Decent greens. Fairways good, rough sparse. Ball washers actually had soap and water. One group waved me through and a second had me join. Nice folks

Nice short course

Course is in very good shape. Greens are amongst the best around. tee boxes need work. Still a good value for the money.

Fun course to play

Course is relatively short but does require accurate shot placement to score well. Greens and fairways are in great shape.

well kept course

This is a nice moderate priced and moderate difficulty course. It was very busy and the play was slow. A ranger was present and tried to speed up play but it was just slow over the whole course.
According to some others, this was unusual. Nice people and fun course to play.

Nice, short track

Greens were quick, fairways sparse and rough pretty weedy.. After we played through a really slow 4some we played in just over three hours. Short, even from the tips, narrow with a lot of water. Next time will be better as the hazards are not easy to see.
