Greens were terrible

My friends and I decided to play at Crane Creek because we have not played there in about a year. I noticed right off the main practice putting green was in Texas conditioning. It looked like someone poured acid al over it and you cannot properly putt on it. We went to the driving range and it needed work there was not even sand to repair our divots as a matter of fact the whole driving range was in need of majorly repair. When we tees off the fairways were decent but the condition of every green on every hole was in awful and non playable. I do not think we will return. The city of Melbourne should get out of the golf course business.

Sell it

The best thing that the city of Melbourne could do with this course is fix it. Failing that, sell it for building development. It is a disgrace in all aspects. The first clue is the practice tee, which looks ready to plant potatoes.

Save your money !

Just WOW ! This course has the worst greens in Florida. They have been punched and sanded at least 10 times since August of 2015. It is obvious that there is most likely a fungus that is killing the greens. Completely un puttable. They should be ashamed the prices they are charging for this miserable lil stretch of land. The staff is friendly so that is not a problem. DO NOT waste your dollars on this place. You have been warned !

Solid course at a great price.

Great price. Very good greens. Pro shop guy was rude. But the lady in the restaurant, was great. Very flat wide-open course, with several water hazards that made for a fun round. I didn't lose a single ball. Course was very windy, which just made the course even more fun/challenging.

Crane Creek

Played this Sunday in the morning. Was expecting a slow round but our thressome moved pretty quickly most of the round. Tee boxes and fairways were ok, greens were sanded though. Overall a decent layout of holes, not the longest course by any means. They had water jugs on every hole which was a nice feature.

course in poor condition

just went to this course to knock some rust off my game coming from up north and not having played for at least a month. it is a wide open course that is very walkable and good for seniors. it is a short course, if you can hit over 200 with your driver. I hit driver wedge on just about every par 4. the greens had been aerated and were in terrible shape, almost unplayable.

player friendly course

We were a foursome and very pleased with the condition of the course. We all had a different level of skill and yet the course was challenging enough for all of us. We will definitely play Crane Creek again.

close to home

I had a nice day of it. hazard areas were pretty easy to avoid. support your local courses and respect the course by repairing divots and avoid driving on surfaces where the cart will damage the turf.

Course was in very poor condition

Greens were very bumpy with bare area's on greens. Fairways full of weeds and not properly cut. Area's around greens full of weeds also not cut properly. Just overall poor condition.
