Rebuilt course in excellent condition and beautifully redone. Overzealous and annoying ranger hassled us twice with no one behind us and we were less than five minutes behind pace..heard same complaint for several others... will give them one more chance.

Tremendous job fixing the course. They were closed for some time during the renovation. I heard they put 2.5 mill into it. The 16th green has been moved into the lake to make it the signature hole.

We caught up to other groups after 9 and the pace of play on the back nine was extremely slow.

The Florida is now a good course again! I really enjoyed playing the Florida Club yesterday! The course was in really terrible shape before the renovations. They only thing is that the greens are very hard and thus tough to stop your shot. Otherwise I totally recommend this course again!

Course is in very good shape. Greens are hard and not very receptive but with the course just being redone it was understandable. Good layout with some challenging holes. Once the greens get a little less hard course will be excellent. Good putting greens with plenty of slope on them. They could put the pins in some ridiculously hard places if they wanted. All in all I really liked it and would reccomend playing there to anyone. The only complaint that was had was that the banana cost $1.50 lol.

The course was closed for quite some time as they were doing a makeover. As Bush n Trump said "mission accomplished". Great shape all around with a great change on two holes. Unfortunately, we were rained out after 15 holes. Also unfortunate is the price the Florida Club charges. I used my golfnow rewards to knock the price down.

The Florida Club went through a recent renovation. The improvements are subtle but well done. The greens in particular are much nicer. True and firm. Also the hole 16 change more dramatic but really adds to the strategy of play for that hole.

Overall, this course refresh is a welcome improvement.

This course was in pretty decent shape, the oohs and ahhhs I've read about the changes and renovations they made don't make a difference to me because it was the 1st time have a played it. The greens however were very hard and did not hold the ball, yet true and in good shape....over all the course was good and I would play it again

Golfed The Florida Club on 11 April. Prompt service at the bag drop. Check-in was easy. Decent bucket of range balls for the price. I really enjoyed this course. It was in great shape, and despite heavy rains the night before, there was no standing water on the fairways. The greens held approach shots well. They were fast, but honest. We had several visits from the course marshals, keeping us informed on the play ahead. Even though we started a few holes behind a mini-tournament, our twosome did not catch the last tournament foursome until the turn, and our time for the round was 3 hours 15 minutes. During lunch the staff in the restaurant took great care of us. All in all, a very enjoyable experience. Will play again!!

May be pricey to some unless you get a Hot Deal or try their summer membership.. Outstanding turf conditions from tee to green and in between. Best in the area. Played it three times in past week and will return soon. Try it if you like to be treated well and enjoy superb turf conditions with your golf. Oh, and the pace of play is excellent as well, less than 4 hours even on the weekend.

Enjoyed this place so much, when we finished 18, we went back into the pro shop and paid for another 18.

I knocked my review on pace of play and course conditions down for 2 things. First, given that the course was recently renovated, the greens are firm - so much so that it's difficult to hold a wedge. This should be fixed once the greens are aerated and age a bit. Second, we went out as a foursome and the starter put out 2 twosomes right behind us. We let both of them play through since they naturally played faster than a foursome. The ranger kept coming around because our cart pinged the pro shop that we were playing behind schedule (due to having to let 2 groups play through). It was a little frustrating since we were playing normal pace for a foursome.

Despite these two things, I will definitely be back next time I am in the area and would recommend this course to anyone who enjoys a good layout, good conditions, and challenging course.

Apparently the Florida Club re-opened just a few weeks ago after being renovated. Whatever they did, they did it right. The course is in great shape. I thoroughly enjoyed a Saturday afternoon round, playing in just under 4 hours. They make it clear before you begin that pace of play is important, and they have a ranger who assists in keeping things moving. Large waste bunkers frame almost every hole, but they are fairly easy to recover from. The staff could not have been friendlier. Also has a nice driving range to warm up. I expect to play the Florida Club many times in the future.

I played here two years ago and it was decent. I sent some friends of mine last year and got very negative comments. Seeing is believing and this course is in outstanding condition. Given the drought the area is going through indicates the level of importance the course is given by the maintenance crew. This is a fairly tough course so choose your tees wisely. They have some very, very challenging holes but in all fun to play and well worth a trip to this location.

Course reopened after a year's renovation and is in very good condition, but they are charging much more than they should to pay for it. Find a deal online or get on their email list for preferred rates. It's still the same course as in previous years but in better condition. The staff is very nice and helpful.

There are sand traps/cartpaths that run the entire length of some holes and kick up dust if you are following another cart. The GPS on their carts is a basic front-center-back of green.
