This is a great course. Unfortunately I had no idea course was closing at the end of April for renovations. Golf Now usually keeps the app updated when aerating or renovations, this time there was no knowledge of that. When I pulled up to the course I thought maybe the drought conditions here in Florida really hurt the course. When I ask the young lady at check in what is going on I was told they were closing in 4 days. No explanation just closing in 4 days. After the round when I asked the cart attendants they told me they are replacing the greens, fairways and redoing 2 holes. When this course is in playable conditions it is a beautiful course with a decent layout. Pace of play is usually around 3 hours or less when season is over. Greens roll great. Just don't go in the rough! Typical Florida rough will eat the ball.

The course is wide open. Like many south Florida courses it was very dry. However I thought the greens ran well and the tee boxes were in good shape. The fairways were brown but the drives would run forever. I had to play the course more like a TX course and ran the ball up to the green. I thought it was a fun round and good shape in spite of the drought.

Golf Now sold us 4 tee times for the Florida Club without bothering to mention that the course was closing in two weeks for renovations.

There has been no (as in none) maintenance on this course other than mowing for a very long time, including no watering.

There is dry burnt out grass on the fairways, and the greens are ridiculously bare.

Picture your ball rolling on cement!

Golf Now used to give updates on aerating, etc. Now, there seems to be no consideration for course conditions.

We would have gladly paid a few more dollars for a different course, had we been warned.

The one consistent that Golf Now has maintained, is that the fees keep going up.

I found out at the end of play that the course will be closed for renovations for 6 months. Accordingly, they were letting the grass die off - but it still looked beautiful.

The course layout, Length & Shape is perfect, But

You should keep away from the Florida club until it has been re-surfaced in October, when i played the course had not been watered for a long time, it was like playing on concrete ,

This course was closing in a few weeks and they had already applied round up to kill all of the grass except the greens and tee boxes. So, we got to play on dead grass.What fun!

Course was closing for summer for complete renovation (grass), so playing on dry and hard course do not give a real feel for the course. Will give them another chance next year.

I was not informed until i got there that they had sprayed weed killer on all fairways to kill the grass for their scheduled replacement. Fairway grass was very thin and tight. But I did gain about 20 yards of roll on my drives! Chipping around the greens was easy if you normally practice chipping off the cart paths.

The Florida Club Golf Course is one of our favourite courses. It has a great layout and a sufficient number of challenges. The course was not in its usual top notch shape as they are going to start renovating it at the end of April. As a result, the fairways do not appear to have been watered and the greens were dry and very fast. This is completely understandable and we look forward to returning to this course during our vacation in Florida in 2018.

First off I was told to tuck my shirt in at the pro shop...Certainly since it came bit loose.

Bags taken care of asap by the staff. Starter drives to the range and kindly asks MR..would you and my wife would like to go earlier to the tee. He was 'so nice and professional' I was feeling like I was at a private country club. Well feeling great I start off birdie birdie to shoot 71 because the course is in EXCELLENT shape. While most eastern courses are dry and beat up...not The Florida Club. The greens are cut low and rolling true at about 11-12 stint. I played blue tee 6390 and perhaps will play gold 6909 today...YES me and wifey are going back!, driving up from WPB again

The pace of play was excellent (beyond) on a Friday afternoon. The course ranger kept well out of our way and stopped far in the distance to allow shots and never said boo.

The course is somewhat challenging if you don't pic the right clubs or shape the required shots and you will be given a test. The FW's were very good, rough fair and the greens were 'superb'. Its nice to put a putt on line and watch it roll to the cup as intended. The course has lovely nature to take in, woods, lakes, birds etc...a nice ecosystem. The Baby Sandhill Crane was adorable! Wifey said she felt like she was on vacation! Other members players were courteous hold doors open, excusing themselves etc etc.

GO PLAY FLORIDA CLUB You wont be disappointed! I play most courses from Boca Raton to Port St Lucie the last 25yrs. This is a honest review and perhaps my only review in years. I did not go to the restaurant/snack shop so I am not rating the off-course amenities
