Great muni

I enjoyed this Donald Ross municipal course very much. Newly renovated greens with paspalum grass in great shape. Good fairways. They've apparently removed some bunkers, so not as challenging as some Ross courses, although the familiar green shapes are present. Very walkable.

A Donald Ross Gem

I have played this course several times over the past six years. Condition has varied from fair to pretty good. Our group hadn't played it in the past year and had heard that the city had resurfaced the greens and seriously upgraded the rest of the course. The greens were fast and smooth, the fairways were excellent for this time of year and the traps were damp but nicely dressed. I've heard that Donald Ross would design courses when he vacationed in Florida and I for one am sure glad he spent time in New Smyrna Beach. What a pleasure to play, but you need to play it more than once to understand the "Ross" nuances.

Take the "Donald Ross" name off this one

Donald Ross did the original design which was updated and much improved by Bobby Weed while keeping the Ross feeling. The latest update removed many traps and moved the remaining ones away from the playing area and flattened out the greens. Paspallum greens are now featured and as of right now are quite good, but based on the track record of the greens keeper, it is only a matter of time. The fairways are thin and filled with weeds and really require "preferred lies" if you can find a place to play from. Not worth the morning rate....wait until after noon for the reduced rate and good luck

Open layout

Most memorable feature is the sparse landscaping on almost all holes. There are a couple of palm trees every 50 yards along the fairways, with some occasional water far to the side. No real OB since the fairways are adjacent to each other and the rough is not deep. So it plays very open. Even the tee boxes appear to be close to the previous greens because of the lack of shrubs or grasses between them. Greens were in good shape and fairways were a seven out of ten. Strange to mention, but the concrete cart paths were in better shape than most courses with no major heaving or separations.

Similar to Placid Lakes CC, Spring Lake Resort Cougar Trail, & Pinecrest Golf Club

12:52 tee time w/ couple of buddies for hot deal price of $19.96/ea thru TeeOff. Fun, old style municipal course designed by Donald Ross. Small greens putting surprisingly faster in front nine, slower but truer in back nine. Tee boxes in good shape. Wide tee shot landing areas. Fairways pretty plush. Battery powered carts w/ windshield & rain cover in back.Would definitely play again.

Exercise for new golfers

This golf course, why they called a feed. golf course. Close this course, to be in 1 year maby one of these. The greens are not long -very long... with masterpiece of repair parts. The fairways- their no fairways there only ruff weed. Dont go there, we paid 18.00$ box and its a steele. This is a 5.00$ value with cart. Never play there again- very disapointed...

what happened to the greens

While course still has a good layout something is very wrong with the management of the course Greens look like no one who knows anything about grass is running the mowers patches , holes and general lack of consist grass on the greens Did the mowers use a brush hog on some of the fairways? workers think its funny to mow in the course and follow you around. in stead of mowing the greens 18-1 so a golfer only has them once they mow any old green they want and sometime they seem to miss half the green . Not a course to recommend

New greens keeper/bad choice

After the remodeling by Bobby Weed, the course was in good shape. With the hiring of a very special greens keeper, he got it into fantastic shape...fairways, tees, and greens. Unfortunately he left for an exclusive golf course in the Bahamas and his replacement has run the course into the ditch. The greens, tees, and fairways during his 6 or so months have deteriorated to the point of being unplayable. I do not recommend this course unless you expect the very minimum from a golf course

nice muni

Nice layout. Donald Ross design built after he passed. Condition were'nt as good as the past. Mostly the greens. The price may reflect the conditions. The green shapes and bunkers make the course. Still enjoyed it.
