The beautifully manicured, par-72 Renaissance Golf Course features two distinctive nines. The front nine has an open links feel to it with wide fairways and greens that will accept bump-and-run approach shots. The back nine requires more accuracy from tee to green as it meanders through a large conservation area. Water comes into play on every hole on the inward nine on this course designed by Chip Powell. Most fairways are lined with stately pines and ancient oaks. The greens at the Renaissance Golf Club are a pleasure to putt. These TifEagle Bermuda grass putting surfaces are state-of-the-art and roll fast.

Hi KingOsi.

I apologize if the course notification system went under the radar, we have every online tee time set to notify you of the current conditions, as well as our local and call center teams. Our expectation was to do all we could to share the course conditions with our course alert.

We are very much looking forward to our restored fairways, and hope you'll re-join us again after they are complete in the Fall.

They were over a week into redoing their fairways. They are still in the middle of it, I can't believe they are still taking golfer's out. All the fairways were completely dead and flat, and will continue to be that way till at least into late June. Shame on golf now for having this course in the que at this time.

How can you charge full price to play a course that is set to close for the summer starting in June and have fairways that all the grass hias been killed off in preparation for a complete fairway overhaul this summer. Was really surprised as it was just two weeks ago we played and we come back two weeks later and they have killed all the grass in the fairways and still are charging us full price. Very disapointed in the way they handled this. Have been a long time player of this golf course and was extremely disappointed. You got no reward for keeping the ball in the fairway as you were better in the rough as there was grass there.

Hi Hammer26.

Thanks for taking the time to review, and for re-visiting us. The treatment to the fairways reacted much quicker than we expected and it wasn't planned quite that quickly. We hope to see you back to see the new product upon completion of the fairway project.

People at the course were nice but no beer cart no coolers to bring in your cart they gave us a plastic bag. No driving range and only a very small putting green that you couldn't even chip on. Course layout was below average it had very small greens with not much challenge to them

As a member of the Clublink family, this was always the best conditioned of Florida West courses. Not any more. The fairways are dry, brown, rundown. You can see the lack of attention if you've played there before as our group had. It's about an hour drive for me and until I hear there's been improvement I won't be back.

We played a 4 on Friday morning at 11:00 AM. Before I booked I ask for conditions and they said fine. Got there and found the course had no water for 3 weeks and was dry, hard, brown 100%. If we knew this we would have played their sister course, Sandpiper. It is in great shape and the greens are second to none. Played it on Thursday. Normally Club Reno is awesome condition. I think they have the obligation tell us the when conditions are this bad...as does Golf Now.

Hi Paulwilkins. Thanks for taking the time to review our property. I apologize the experience didn't live up to your expectations, nor ours. As you are likely aware, we have gotten very little rain over the last few weeks - and nothing can make the course as lush as we expect as mother nature. We are limited by our water supply, so do need to make decisions on the best strategy until we get some rain. We are in the midst of digging a well to aid in that.

Nonetheless, we appreciate you visited us and your kind words of our sister property, Sandpiper. We hope you'll come back to visit us again as the season proceeds (with more rain, ideally)

Very nice facility with good conditions. It has been very dry so you have hard fairways and greens. The water is substantial but has receded in some areas due to drought but still the challenges are there. The course layout is very interesting. The greens being hard were also very quick.

With the many options of golf courses in FL, I would choose to play somewhere else. $50 tee time that was supposed to come with free range balls. I show up to the course and they don't even have a range.

I appreciate you taking the time to review. The lack of recent rain has certainly been a challenge to keep everything lush, we continue to water daily. However, nothing keeps up that look quite like mother nature. We hope you'll give us another chance in the coming weeks. Don't hesitate to reach out if we could have done anything else to aid with your experience.
