Not worth your time or money, seriously. Yikes!

This course is in such bad shape it's like an insult for them not to warn you and offer a 40% discount.
Let's start with the practice green behind the tiny pro shop. As I walked up there was a group of four literally standing there looking at it. Poor condition doesn't explain it...spotty diseased, hard pan dirt with zero care ever given to it, apparently.
The fairways were in deplorable condition except for 4 or 5 of them. More hard pan dirt, very spotty areas of grass. Maybe they have candid cameras in the trees. Greens in virtually the same condition as the practice green...just oh so slightly better, I mean, not much.
No water in ball washers...I know....not much rain this year, but how about water every 4 holes or so? No GPS on carts.

A Hidden Gem

Played here once about 10 years ago so it was like my first time.. Greens were great and not overly fast. Course is well maintained. The back 9 was quite challenging. Staff, members and other patrons were very nice and courteous. Going again and can't wait to try Cranes Roost.

I'm Not Comin' Back!

The only thing that was missing on the course is the windmill and the clown! Range balls were below average as well as the range grass, putting green was half sand and it took almost 10 minutes to get to the back 9! It's a sad day when u have a drive just left or right of center of the fairway with a 110 yds left and have to either bump and run or do a Bubba Watson slice or hook to go around a tree in order to make the green and this happens on several holes. Fairways were in poor condition and greens in average state. The lady running the pro shop was very nice and gave me good local knowledge tips. No, I do not recommend the Otter course until the conditions improve!

Good Value Golf

This course is very pleasant to play. Fairly easy front nine but a fairly challenging back nine. On the back nine if you hit a bad shot you WILL be punished.
We paid about $24 which we thought was good value for money.

will do it again

The staff was so friendly and helpful. The course was in really good condition, a couple of greens were being worked on and they were slower than I am used to. I have e-mailed and texted several people already to tell them about the course. We golfed Otter Creek, I wonder if the other course is just a good. Had a great day and can't wait to go again.

Greens too slow!

The course is challenging and tests every part of your game except putting. The greens remind me of putting on shag carpet. Someone may want to mow them before you have to paint a red line around them.

Tight fairways and small greens. Hitting fairways is a must.

You can do it!!

It's an average course. The woman at the register is kind of slow, people were backed up. Played with a nice man. Since we moved to Florida in December, the course we've played are so-so, some need to take more interest in the grounds
