A Goat Ranch
This is a great course layout, but it is now a “Goat Ranch.” Jan Stephenson bought it Andy said she was going to bring to back to its “glory days.”
Well don’t waste your time suing here. The greens are terrible. Fairways have weeds every where. How long does it take, Jan?
The course is coming back, sort of... There are quite a few holes that are in great shape, but then there are others that are just unplayable. A few of the greens are just a disaster. I would say most of the fairways and tee boxes are in fair shape, not great, borderline good, but fair... and the sand traps dont drain. The staff was friendly and for weekend morning there was nobody else on the course. Overall it was an enjoyable round, just wish the course was in better shape.
Be coming a worthwhile course to consider to play again
Been years since I even considered playing here. Went from bad to disaster a number of years ago. New ownership seems to be making a different. Fairways are OK. greens for the most part are playable, even the brown areas are smooth and grassy. Still has a way to go but you should consider booking a tee time here and see for yourself.....
Nothing short of a miracle
My buddies and I used to joke that this course was built on Indian burial ground numerous owners and yet this beautiful classic course was beyond playable. I saw some good reviews recently and decided to give it another shot and was absolutely blown away ! Ive never seen the greens as good as they are right now. The rest of the course was very good as well and will improve I’m sure being the new owners have only been there barely a year. Definitely worth playing great value . A job well done to Jan Stephenson for bringing this course back .
Could be so much more
We arrived at the course and went in to pay.
The person before me was offered balls to warm up and was treated very friendly.
I'm sure he was a local because we did not receive the same treatment.
We got in a cart and drove to the first hole.
No starter and no one paired with us and 2 foresomes in front of us.
Nearly 5 hours later we finished.
The course has a very nice layout but they need to maintain it far better than they do now. There are leaves all over the place except for the greens which were in pretty good shape.
The scorecard is useless as it has no accuracy at all for the hole distance.
I was surprised because Jan Stephenson took this course over and she has to know how to appeal to golfers.
Give it another chance.
In four months I watched this go from a place to practice for cheap money, to becoming a great place to play golf. The course improvements have been nothing short of spectacular. Pace of play needs a major improvement - 4:45 the last two rounds was way too much. But this remains a Great Value course. Challenging with lots of blind shots, dog legs and overhanging trees to navigate. The Par 3's are especially distinctive, and each hole has its own special character.
This Is Being Restored To Past Greatness
Come Play Tarpon Woods after Inch of rain the course was very playable Greens were fast and true Matt the Pro was awesome can’t wait to go back !
I have been playing Tarpon Woods for years. The past couple of years the course was in rough shape. Since Jan Stephenson took over in April 2017, the course has improved each week. The conditions were almost perfect on Saturday. The layout is fair and you will see lots of wildlife as well.
Definately Going Back
I used to play there many years ago. But, the condition went from bad to worse. I heard that LPGA player, Jan Stephenson recently took over so I gave it a try. I cannot believe how good the course is now. They also cater to disabled veterans and first responders and they are recognized by the Military Order of The Purple Heart for Veterans programs. I highly recommend that you give it another try. All I can say is WOW!
Great Course and Veteran Friendly!
I took two buddies to the course for a round of golf on ones birthday and while we weren't expecting much from the reviews we were more than pleased with what we found when we got there. We were greeted by the friendly staff and taken care of. We went out and played the front nine and the course was in great shape and the layout was challenging but enjoyable. Nice fairways and the greens were in good shape. The key for us was on the turn we came into the Pro Shop to get drinks and one of the staff overheard us talking about my friend being former military. They went above and beyond to show their appreciation with a special gift that was above and beyond. We then found out that this was the norm here as they are ran by the Jan Stephenson Crossroads Foundation which benefits wounded military and first responders. That sold us. We are working to have a regular outing here and look forward to playing here regularly.
