Not terrible but you can do better in Ocala

The layout of this course is fine, typical muni with a definite "old Florida" feel. Most holes are pretty straight so shaped shots don't come into play a lot, but water definitely comes into play on most holes. In fact, right now there is way more water than there should be. I'm not sure if it's due to extra rain lately but many of the hazards have run over, creating standing water in the fairways and in other areas where there would not typically be a hazard. Rough was overgrown too. If you miss the fairway by a few feet be prepared to potentially lose your ball. Hard to enjoy your round when this happens multiple times. Some greens looked good, some looked bad, but even the ones that looked good were incredibly slow. We played as a foursome and got chased by singles and twosomes all day. I understand a single playing a twilight round but the clubhouse needs to be pairing people up for 10:00 tee times. We didn't see any other groups with three or more. This is frustrating because you're looking at a 5 1/2 hour round if you let every group play through, but if you don't let them through you are constantly rushed. Clearly Pine Oaks is just happy to be bringing in players. Blue tees aren't overly difficult but the tight layout means blue tee boxes very near the previous hole's green and you become a prime target for the approach shot of the group behind you. Some holes like #18 are ridiculous with the tee box placement. To get to the blues you have to drive around a pond and up the cart path of another hole to get to the tees. I'm from Gainesville so Pine Oaks would be a decent option here considering the lack of good public courses; the value is still decent for $20. But in Ocala you are better off finding a hot deal or paying a few bucks more to play elsewhere. Note: If using Swing By Swing golf app it finds the "North" and "South" 9 holes separately.

Great conditions

The greens have made a huge comeback in recent years, and now are just about perfect. Even the trouble greens are good. Patchwork on 4,5 and 17, but that did not interfere with play. Fairways are a bit bare in spots, but they have new carts and price is right. Since this is a city course with a disc golf course adjacent, there are no houses on course at all.

This course needs attention

Didn't play this course last year because of inferior conditions in late fall of 2013. Conditions have not gotten better! Some greens were diseased and there was little, if any, fairway grass. Whatever grass there was is mostly brown and dormant with weeds. I will not play here again. This was a good municipal course 4-5 years ago but now $32 dollars for greens fees is insulting.

A little rough

This being a local course I visit it about once every two months. The staff is always friendly and helpful! The course needs a little work especially on the greens. Overall it's a good value if you get a discounted rate.

No other course had our tee time so we played here. Apart from 3. Greens that need desperate attention the course was in good shape. Staff were excellent and they made the difference. So so weather....but beats work

Very Good Muni Course

The day we played it was below 60 degrees so all of their league play was canceled which opened the course up for us to play a 3.5 hour round. The course was in very good shape except for 2 greens on the front that had some bad areas. This was our most enjoyable round of the 6 we have played in the past 2 weeks while in this area. All the staff we met were very friendly and inviting.
