not ready to play

Golf now must be joking. Greens are a total mess. Not worth 17 dollar hot deal. This course is worth 10 bucks. Don't want to hear sob stories about their problems. All courses have problems. Go play deltona, eagle dunes, red tail. Etc,etc .this place not worth it..

Not the best condition

Needs lots of TLC greens were terrible mostly under repair.
Fairways were fair . The rough was not green but was cut short
So balls were easy to find.

Venetian bay homeowner

Course has great layout. Fairways are wide open. Greens are slightly ruff due to disease but coming back nicely. Fairways slightly burnt from lack of rain. Very well maintained course. Bring your own water, only 2 available

The Course May Be Lost

Have played the course many times in the past 6+ years, in all seasons, and local conditions. It has been one of my favorites in Volusia Count. Rates went up a few years ago And my play went down. (Amazing how that works.) The course is absolutely the worst shape I have ever seen/played. The greens are horrid; almost unplayable. 1 green was closed due to fungus damage; I’m surprised all 18 were not closed due to unplayability. Most of the fairways were burned out. There was no warning from the course or staff. It is unlikely I will play the course any time soon at any price.

Ditto on course conditions

I echo previous reviews, and I wish I had read them before we booked Venetian Bay. The course layout is solid, with generous fairways and pretty water and sand features. But the course was in really rough shape, especially the greens. I would definitely check the conditions before booking here.

Not Properly Informed

The courses greens were very damaged. I was not alerted by GolfNow (GolfNow probably wasn’t alerted by the club), I have played this course before and was looking forward to doing so but after seeing the damage on a couple of the greens and asking someone who was just coming off the course, I left and absorb the financial loss. Sad to have to report. I’ll will check directly with the golf course before booking again with GolfNow.

Still not there

Greens are showing signs of coming back. But the tees and fairways are going south. Splurge and water them twice a day. If the maintenance budget is low sell 10 round passes to generate revenue. 100 passes at $250.00 is $25,000.00. This is the best layout in area and it is empty most days. Once the builders are sold out I see this course going away like Indigo Lakes! Please don't let that happen.

A little better than I remembered

The fairways are in really good shape. Some of the greens are in need of real help. Overall it was good experience but honestly not worth the money they are asking in greens fees.

The greens need a lot of work on the bare spots. The greens are in the worse shape that I have ever seen. For this time of the year the growing season for the grass they should be in a lot better condition. I will give it a month before we play the course again in hopes that the greens will be better. Thanks

Could be better

Compared to other courses in the area, we really enjoyed the layout but that was about it. Staff was very friendly as well. Fairways were probably the best part of our visit. Unfortunately, the tee boxes left a little bit to be desired and the greens were fairly patchy/diseased. When rolling across spots that were in better condition they were still slow. I'm eager to see what this course will look like when the greens are in better shape. In my opinion, this course was not worth the $30 twilight rate in it's current condition, better options in the area for better prices.

Took a chance...

This is one of my favorites but I haven’t played it in a long time because of the problems they’ve developed on the greens. I read the latest review that said they were coming back but they are still a long way from where they once were. Hole 1 has a temporary green in place and only a few of them are in decent shape. The rest are still on the mend. The rest of the course is in good shape with some tee boxes somewhat bare. It’s a shame the greens are so bad. I hope they get it back.

Rough Shape

I have played this course about 4-5 times and I must say I was disappointed in the shape of the course. In the past it has been immaculate but today not so much, the greens were in bad bad shape, could hardly putt on them and the fairways were beat up. Not sure what happened but it was hard justifying spending $50 to play a course that was that beat up. I hope they can get the course back in shape, it is a fun course to play and the staff is great!
