Course was in good condition except for the numerous grass clumps that frequented the fairways. The greens were excellent. The layout was challenging for any skill level. Staff was friendly and very helpful.

I would recommend this course to anyone!

Course was in nice shape. The rough had been mowed and was heavy with clippings. Green were in very good shape. Staff was great and the starter kept us hydrated on a very hot humid day. We will play it again.

These greens-they roll so true. Speeds have to range somewhere between 9-11 on any given hole and they are smooth. By far best bang for the buck as far as greens go. The layout is very forgiving however, on any given day pin placements will force decisions that keep it interesting.

First time playing the course. It was in good condition, and has some amazing features I don't normally see in Florida. The course is undulated, and plenty of sand trap challenges. It was well maintained and enjoyed the round immensely. The grounds crew were super friendly and helpful. Well done! I'll be back!

Only three stars for amenities since kitchen is closed for remodeling and there was no courtesy cart on the course. Would have been nice to know this ahead of time. Loved playing the course. Pretty layout with wide fairways.

I understand the Osprey course is not Martin Downs premiere course but there were areas of neglect showing throughout the course. Mostly the lack of attention to detail you find on the nicer courses. Being that this is the course the public is allowed in to play it is understandable. The bunkers were horribly packed down and maintained and the bag drop employees were not attentive.

Ok, so if your looking for a luxurious 19th hole, you can skip it. Can't remember to take a rake from your cart to the bunker? Then keep your ball on the grass! There's plenty of it. Pace of play is excellent (less than 3 hours mid week). Almost didn't go because of all the negative reviews. Not sure what the problems have been for others but you should check it out for yourself. Charlie and the staff were very friendly. Greens are excellent, fast and true. Great value. You can pay more for less elsewhere!
