Wallowing in Uncertainty

We booked a 9:30 teatime with golf now, who then telephoned to ask us to switch to 8:45.

On arrival at 8:15, we were told our start time would be 8:52.

At 8:22, the starter rushed us out to the first tee. This was not a bad thing because it put us out in front of the crowd, and our playing time was excellent ( less than 3 hours for a twosome) but it seemed a little disorganized..

The course was in good condition, some of the greens were under repair, but fortunately they never interfered with our play.

My playing partners gps recognized the course under its old name, and mine had the holes numbered differently. 1 was 10 and 10 was 1 etc This didn’t detract from the enjoyment.

The course was reasonably challenging, and my playing partner found some of the tee shots a little narrow.

We will play this course again.

Good golf course to play

Good come back from the brink - a few greens still need a come back - but overall the greens are in excellent shape. Great layout and challenging.

Jason,
Thank you for leaving your review. We had sent you an email for anyone who played between April 8th and April 15th a come back and play for $25. I am sure that now that the greens are rolled you’ll notice a big difference. Thank you.

Beware !

A “Cow Pasture” without the cows is the only way to describe this course. The greens were patched with sod and never mentioned at the pro-shop. The greens were not cut in the past several days although they were mowing the practice green. There was no starter, there was no Marshall, there was no one in the pro-shop when I wanted to ask about the afore mentioned staff.
The course is in the worst condition than any of the course I have played in Florida in the past six weeks. AND they charge a ridiculous price to play. GOLF NOW should drop the course until conditions improve or the price drops to a reasonable rate due to the very poor conditions..
On the bright side, the staff in the restaurant were friendly..

Thank you for leaving your review. You are correct that greens had not been cut in a couple of days because the staff was resodding all of the bad areas which makes them very hard to mow. There is always someone in the shop as well as most of the time a starter or ranger on the course. If you saw the practice green being mowed it was at about 145 which was when you and your wife made the turn. Those greens were mowed that afternoon as our new mechanic from Gator Creek had just set the mower to proper height. Our layout is one of the best in the area. Golf now will not take us off of their website because they make money. This was the third time you played on a golf now hot deal since March 12th and they set their own rates as well as keep 100% of that money. Our golf course is far from a “cow pasture” as it gets. Thank you again for leaving your review.

Great day for golf at the Moc!

We played fast... just over 3 hours. Nice conditions. Some turf repairs were being made on some of the greens... they should be great when everything grows in. We come from St. Pete... so it's a short trip right over the Skyway.

Mediocre at best

We’ve played tournaments there for years. It has become a bootleg course. We were the first group to tee off on a Saturday morning and got through the front 9 quickly, to pull up to hole 10 with 5 carts waiting to tee off. Meanwhile, two other foursomes had already teed off. The gentlemen (not his fault, just poorly managed in the clubhouse) said we could either wait for everyone else & tee off after OR play the front 9 again. Unfortunately had to choose the latter. Again, poorly managed. We understand that nothing works perfectly, but it’s not the first time we’ve experienced rookie-like tee time issues. It’s a free for all for all the people who live near the course that bring their own carts and no one seems to know what to do. Last time we’ll play there.

I understand and apologize for my starter made a huge mistake. I reprimanded him as he was never given permission to have the large group who had tee-times on the first hole at 9:00 am and he completely messed up. I was not made aware of this until 9:45 as I am extremely embarrassed as no one is allowed off the back without my permission. I am sorry that your day was not very good and I understand why you will tell all of your friends never to play with us again. I wish I had been there to rectify the situation and have not had the opportunity to.

Good Value for the money

WE had perfect weather for our round of golf. Some greens are in outstanding condition and others need work. Staff is friendly and helpful. I would recommend this course for your average golfer.

Condition

With all the ponds on the cours you would think they would water more. You either hit from the fairway that has dead grass or you hit from the rough that is sand and 4 inch weeds.

Thank you for leaving a review. I just wanted to clarify a couple of points for you. There is only one main pond used for irrigation on the golf course and we do use it to water tees, fairways , and greens. Our greens had been over watered by our superintendent who is no longer employed by us and the new superintendent is purposely drying the greens out to get rid of algae and the overseed as we move into the warmer climate. The fairways are dormant and when you do not overseed we are at the mercy of dormant grass. It’s not dead but needs the ground temperature to reach 73 degrees for the Bermuda grass to kick back into gear. We did a very big fertilizer program two weeks ago with a polymer coating and it is time and temperature release and should be active in the next couple of weeks. Thank you again for playing.

Great Day of Golf

Course is pleasant to play. Some greens need work. There is construction going on in front of the course making the course a little difficult to get to.

Nice course with lots of water

Course is challenging due to water on majority of holes. Reachable pars or birdies if you can stay on fairways. Will play again.

OK course

First off there isn’t anyone to greet you. No help with your clubs and no carts. Check in went smoothly and was handed the keys to the carts. Group of 20 ahead of us and 12 behind but the starter let us in a little early and got off OK. Slow start and had some backups.
Course was fair condition. Grad in fairways was too short and the greens were too long(slow). Some bare spots on the greens also.
Probably won’t play here again as it really hasn’t changed much since my last round 5 years or so years ago and it’s a drive from my south Bradenton villa.

Not with it

This course is not in good shape. And they let people go out anyway at all, meaning, the were 2 twosome in front of us that were very slow and many more as we viewed the course during play. For the price I could never do it again, but I never played it and wanted to see how it was. Once is enough.

Moccasin wallow

Course was nice easily played, greens need cut very slow, pace of play was terrible, needed rangers to enforce time limits to golfer who take longer time to play, waited for a group that took 35 per hole, disappointing
