Nature Walk Golf Club, as its name would suggest, sprawls across a scenic landscape blanketed with majestic oaks and Florida pines. The course boasts well manicured fairways as well as immense playability, both of which have been factors in its growing popularity. While the layout may not satisfy golfers looking for monstrous pot bunkers and lengthy par 5s, it does provide a fair amount of challenge. A number of sparkling blue lakes come into play throughout as well as bunkers that closely hug the greens. Nature Walk Golf Club is both gentle enough for beginners while being a great casual round for more seasoned golfers. The warm atmosphere, excellent conditions, and easy of play can be enjoyed no matter what skill level. Golfers can also utilize the extensive practice facilities, which include a driving range, a putting and chipping green, and a pitching green complete with a practice bunker.

Fun course to play

This is a great executive course to play to sharpen up your iron play. No par 5's, you can play a fairway wood or long iron off the tee on the par 4's. I play this course everytime I'm in the area and have seen it in better shape than it was this time. Played as a single in about 2 hours after passing a foursome at the turn. Never been crowded when I've played it in October. Greens are a bit slow so plan to spend a little time on the practice green before you tee off.

Course was short, but sweet.

Nice executive course in a small community. It was soggy from all the recent rain, but in great shape.

Appropriately Named

We certainly enjoy the abundance of nature at this course. It is not extremely difficult; however, it does present some challenges. It really allows one to work on their short game and is a nicer atmosphere for beginners than a full length course. The play was a little slower than normal, but with a cart to have a seat one can just enjoy the scenery while they wait. I have played this course before and it has normally been a decent pace.

Overpriced for a par three course

This course tries to convince you as well as charge you like they are a 18 hole championship golf course. The reality is it is a par three golf course with a few par four holes mixed in. Then they charge you $37 for 18 holes. The greens are in good shape. But most tee boxes are not. I rarely play this course because for the same price I can play real golf course.
