Historic old course from 1945. Small greens and traps but a must play to add to your collection of old courses. Get a Hot Deal from Golf Now and give it a try.

I played this course several Years ago and it was in bad condition. After reading several recent reviews and the cost to play, I decided to give it another try. I was pleased with the improvement they made on the course conditions. The fairways and greens had nice grass on them. The carts were fairly new. It's still not a top condition course, but fine for the average golfer and a good price.

Mt Dora golf club is a nice public course. The fairways are lined with a mixture of live oaks and palm trees. There is good elevation changes and a good mixture of right and left dog legs. Most greens are elevated and small. Accuracy is a must. The fairways and greens were over seeded and in good shape. The value for the money was excellent. I would definitely play this course again.

The conditions are the best I've seen in 5 years. Over-seeding of tees, fairways, and greens has come in well. The greens are healthy and full and rolling true at a moderate speed. The course is typical of its 1940s origins: small greens and small bunkers requiring accurate target golf, fairly short 350-yard par 4s, and 470-yard par 5s. Don't expect a contemporary resort course. Enjoy a golf course and a small-town Florida ambiance from an earlier time. I have great fun every time I play here, and I've had even greater fun this year because of the improved course conditions.

The course Fairways and greens were in less than optimal condition. I don't think it had as much to do with the season as it did with a period of neglect or lack of funds. It looks like it must have been a very nice place at one time. A gentleman I met on the course and played with said that it hit improved over the previous year by quite a bit. I will give it another try. The golf now price was only$20 per person with a cart so definitely worth trying again and hoping that they are on an Improvement level

Since I moved to Florida ten months ago, I have played this course six times. It gets better each time I,ve played. Great layout. The superintendent and staff are doing an excellent job. Now that I live here it,s a course I will enjoy playing. I hope past bad reviewers will give it another chance.

Course condition is still poor overall considering the condition of some of the fairways. Lots of bare or weedy spots on the fairways. If your drive lands in a sandy spot it can take much of the roll off the ball. I like playing on this course so I hope it is able to improve course conditions.
