10:0am tee time w/ 3 buds for $16.99/ea thru teeoff.com. Minimal bodies of water, couple of holes w/ water completely on one side. Fun course. In great shape except greens were just aerated w/ large round holes & greens on back nine weren't sanded yet. Tee boxes & fairways plush & w/o any weeds. Fairways cut a little too tight or it'd be a little plusher. Roughs short enough to spot errant shots quickly. Medium sized elevated greens that I'm sure putted fairly fast before they were aerated. Battery powered carts w/ front windshield & rain cover in back. Will definitely play again.

I really enjoy playing this course. The course has some tricky risk/reward holes. The tee boxes and fairways were in excellent shape. The greens were impeccable.<br/> .

The Bluffs... a self proclaimed "REDNECK" golf club. If you have lost distance on your tee shots, as I have over the years, then this course may be for you. I found the course to be in almost pristine condition, (tall weeds on the edges) A wonderful routing, Smallish (superb) greens, generous fairways.... very friendly staff... A great value for the fees. Follow hwy 17S out of Bartow, Very easy to find... GO PLAY!!!

The course was in much better shape than anticipated after the rains we have been having.<br/> The pace of play was fast <3 hours (although there were only 2 of us).<br/> Definitely a good course for the money.
