Course is a great value. Course is short but it makes you play very conservative. Greens had been recently worked and sanded and they were very hard to read. Overall a fun course that offers something for all range of playets

Really nice shape now that we've had some rain. Greens are spotty with the transition but overall good value for the money.

The recent rains have really helped course conditions. Approach shots are now holding on the greens instead of bouncing off like they were the last couple of times played. The sand in some bunkers was really hard packed because of the rain.

Course continues to be an excellent value with wide open play in the afternoon. Mucho rain has helped the aeration and greens should be excellent in the coming week.

Love the layout. Proof that a golf course can be challenging with short par 4’s. You miss the green you pay and the par 3’s demand a good shot for par.

$14 for an excellent 18 holes. Greens were aerated this time but still rolled true. Finished 18 in less than 4 hours. Staff friendly and helpful. Nice club to eat or imbibe.

Can’t wait to play there again.

Great afternoon of golf! The weather was almost perfect and we didn't have to wait on any hole and nobody was pushing us. The course conditions were very good other than a few holes with bunkers that were could use a little work.

We played this course in the middle of March and it was impeccable. This time around it has been worn down a bit. With that being said I would still rec this course and play it again tomorrow. The greens are soft and hold shots but they were rolling super fast. Sunday morning there is nobody on the course until about 10:00/11:00. Got love having the course all to yourself. Course condition is still good but it looks like it has had significant traffic on it over the past 30 days or so. Hopefully with the snowbirds going back they will be able to bring it back to that pristine condition because this is one of my favorite courses around Ocala.

Great course and conditions. Weather was perfect and I played with two others who also booked thru Golf Now. We had a great time. We did catch up a foursome that was pretty slow and followed them for a number of hole. Said something to the marshal at the turn and he had us play thru on the tenth tee. All in all, it was a great day.

Another great course in the Ocala area, this is a good course to place, there are some tricky shots and placement a plus. Some wind made club selection very important. The staff was great, Joe in the shop and Barry the manager made the round good with the info and the hospitality.

The course is still in decent shape but very dried out. Don't look to be watering their fairways very much. Hard and fast. Very tight lies.

Played Ocala Palms a few times and must say one of the best kept courses in the county from tee to green. The greens were perfect! This day, fog had delayed all tee times for an hour plus and a Club vs Club tournament was slotted to tee off at mid day which really put back the pace of play. The adorable young lady in the Pro Shop, Calee, was very nice and accommodating. A must play if you're in the Ocala area!

Great course. The wind was killing me (25-30 mph and gusting). The course was in great condition. The greens were as fast as any I have played. The wind had me all over the place especially on the long shots. The fairways were in great shape and the course was just beautiful to look at. The carts were clean and fully charged. The staff was very nice and treated me well. The pace of play was fine playing as a single. I was surprised by the quality of the course and was delighted when I finished my round. SheeeYuks.
