I booked an early morning tee time and was placed with 3 other golfers that were a blast to play with. We teed off at 7:07am and finished in less than 4 hours. The pro shop didn't think I could hit a small bucket with the sun just coming up, but then they thought I could fit in a small bucket. When I went to pay the pro compted the bucket which was nice as I only had time to finish Hal for of it. The course is one of must play in Naples due to the price and layout. You can hit driver on almost every tee box and if the white tees are too easy, move back to the blues as that is a good test of skill. If that is still too easy move back to the tips for a challange and a half. Overall love the layout, conditions and total golf experience.

The course was in good shape considering the dry conditions in SW Florida and compared to other courses on our trip. Greens were of average size, somewhat undulating and in good condition. Fairways were receptive and landing areas fairly generous. Bunkers and hazards didn't come into play much, making for less of a challenge but good for the average golfer. Most holes had attractive natural vegetation defining the hole. No condo views. Clubhouse was minimal.

The greens at Valencia were pretty fast. Fast greens are fine but there were several pin location on the side on slopes. Just about every green contained mounds and slopes, so no level putts. The fairways had some spots where the grass was pretty thin. Range balls are not included in your green fee. At this price point we paid I would have expected better.

You could tell the course was played a lot. Plenty of sand divots and ball marks. Wasn’t worth the $99 I paid. Pace of play was super slow. The course design was slow to start. It did get better around the 7th or 8th hole. The upside we’re the quick greens with plenty of slope.

With all that said I won’t be back unless the rates are $60 or less.

After reading several reviews I was expecting a long round. Almost everyone complained of the pace of play.To my surprise we played in three hours and 40 minutes. I was also expecting treacherous greens which was the case. When you play any course that that charges $100 a round you also expect not to have to pay extra for range balls, there is no GPS there were no towels in the cart, the cart was torn and taped . They do have a beverage cart. Starter was very friendly and knowledgable, the check in guy was snarky after we asked if Florida residents or seniors get a discount. My biggest complaint was everytime I had a putt with in 5 -10 feet of the hole you could see every old hole location. See photo

Here's why;

1) Pro shop is a small trailer.

2) The bar/restaurant is one table and three chairs, which are directly in front of the exit door which leads to the back patio.

3) the chairs on the patio are cheap plastic things that nearly collapse when you sit in them.

4) The bag "boys" are surly middle aged men who have NO customer service skills or iter-personal skills at all. One of the them was chewing, and spitting tobacco while setting up our carts. We asked where the pro shop was and we had no idea what he mumbled. Disgusting.

5) The course itself was ok. Fairways were in good shape. Greens were relatively true but the had several strains of grass growing on them so they were inconsistent.

Tee time 1:22 p.m.

Before we began play the starter explained that playing time was expected to be approx. 4 hours.

Beginning on hole 10 the ranger let us know that our foursome was lagging behind and he expected us to pick up our pace. On holes 11 and 12 he again said we were too slow. He asked us to consider moving our tee position up or play best ball. He harassed us so much he ruined our golf. He finished in 3:58 min. Won’t be back.

Unbearable slow play. Only finished 16 holes. Asked for rain check after 9 holes so we could come back when it wasn’t so overbooked but we’re denied due to Golf Now. Not a pleasant round at all.

We had 3 players and were put with a single. We waited most of the 1st nine holes. It opened up on the back nine and we were playing at a decent pace but for most of the back nine we were harassed by the marshall to speed up. We play a lot of golf so we are very aware of the pace and felt we were being rushed. We are on vacation and golf is supposed to be relaxing & fun , not stressful. The greens were in terrible condition also. Would not go back.

I played this course while on vacation and saw it was a top 10 public course in a magazine. The course layout was nice and the conditions were very good. Greens are extremely undulating which makes for interesting chipping and putting. The clubhouse is very small and staff is ok. I would probably not play it again only due to wanting to try other courses while visiting the area but would recommend someone playing this one at least once.
