Hot September Day

Another hot steamy day in Ocala, Florida. Got started around 10 am and once again found this city course to be in excellent shape. Greens were fast and fairways great. We're coming back soon.

What a great value for your money!

A buddy and I drove down to play an FSGA event here, so the golf course itself was in fantastic shape. The layout is a lot of fun, especially with 5 par 5's and 5 par 3's. It's all the golf course for most level of players from the tips. Generous fairways, and undulating greens. Again, I played it in tournament condition, so I got spoiled, but even at their top rate of $30 this course is a steal in my mind. I'd be happy paying that to play it anytime.

Great course as always

The first green on the first hole is the nicest putting surface I have ever seen. It looks fake. Now, the rest of the greens are not this perfect (which I don’t understand why) but they are still in very nice shape. The course is green and plush. You are not hitting from a thin lie unless you put yourself there. We go to this course often and always enjoy the challenge and the course. The second hole is a challenging par 5 that requires 3 very good shots to get there. The course is extremely “wet” right now because of all the rain we have had but it’s a catch 22. The only thing I would criticize this course for would be there is no bev cart and they don’t employ course rangers but if you are looking for a nice golf course then this is it. The staff is super friendly as well. The starter Bob is a good guy!

All around excellent

Greens hold, well maintained, . Fairways challenging in places (no bare spots) so are bunkers. Overall the best in Ocala area.

Muni holding up to summer

Course has been in excellent shape for the last year and a half. And now even the summer it’s still in great shape. A few greens have a couple spots on them. But isolated and 90% of the putting surfaces are very good

Rough is getting thick and wet in spots

We encountered a huge amount of baby frogs 12-14 around pond

But more amusing than anything else

Very lucky this course is 6 min from home

Good for the money

Course was in great shape. Friendly staff very helpful but got stuck behind a threesome who hit the ball all over the place maybe they need a ranger to keep up the pace.

One More Time

As usual the course was in very good shape and the greens fairly fast. Being a Muni the pace of play could have been better, but there was some event going on and we saw some fivesomes on the course. This course is always in good shape and provides a great day of golf, and that's why we keep on coming back time and again.

Muni- lots of rounds and shows it

A little disappointed in the consistency of the greens and the fairways are in between grasses so somewhat barren

Best bang for your buck

Ocala golf club or ‘muni’ as locals call it is never a disappointment. You can usually play here for under $30 if you play after 11am and it’s pretty much the best bang for your buck. There are courses in Ocala in better condition but you pay for it. If I want to play a course with fairways and greens always in great condition and don’t want to spend $50 I always go with muni.

A Gem of a Course

This course offers challenges for all levels of golfers. The course is in good condition and the staff is always friendly. A restaurant is available with good food. Always a great value to play this public course.

Fun

All of the staff were fun and welcoming - the starter was exceptional. The greens were very well maintained and challenging with lots of undulation. The layout was diverse with some magnificent large oak trees. The couse, though, was not as scenic as some of other courses we have played while vacationing in Florida such as Juliette Falls, Southern Hills Plantation, World Woods and Twisted Oaks.
