Holiday Golf Club is a championship course that features challenging greens that were designed to test golfers with even the sharpest short game skills. The fairways are generously sized but they are also bordered by lakes and white sand bunkers fiercely guard the elevated greens. Players should be prepared to use every club in their bag. The golf course is a challenge but it is also fair and enjoyable, which makes it a good test of skill without testing your frustration. Its playability, which is further enhanced with three sets of tees, has made it one of Florida's most popular tracks. Holiday Golf Club also boasts extensive practice facilities that include a par-3, nine-hole course, a lighted driving range, a chipping green, and an expansive putting green.

Is what it is.

Unfortunately because of the hurricane iit is pretty much the only game in town. Course seems to always be soft/wet, very little to no roll out, get tired of clean and place. Ok, greens decent and for the most part rolled true, the pace of play was good for a change. Ugh!

Tough review considering the golf course had 90 inches of rain in 2018 and has continued to get rain showers weekly in 2019. (Including another one today). We're hoping mother nature starts cooperating soon. Thank you for the positive words about our greens and pace of play. I'm happy to hear we're doing things right in the areas that we can control!

Too Wet

The course was extremely wet with almost swamp like conditions on some holes. They moved the tee boxes way up on a couple of holes because the fairways were unplayable. I don't think they should let people on the course when the conditions are this wet. We did not enjoy the round, I'll try again when it dries out.

Drowning

Course very wet, almost unplayable.
We do not mind cart path only, however, there was standing water, tee boxes moved due to conditions, and muddy fairways everywhere. I am surprised that we were aloud to play. Love the course, but today was rough.

Very muddy conditions

We’ve played here many times over the years but I have never seen it so mushy. I didn’t expect to be playing cart part only as it hadn’t rained much in the last couple weeks. When we shot on the fairways we’d be covered in mud. It’s a beautiful course when it’s not so wet but I feel they shouldn’t let so many people out because it’s unlikely people are fixing divots when you have walk across the course to get to your ball.

Mass Confusion

Couldn’t find any staff at the location. After asking several people at the driving range I eventually was told I’d have to drive to the main course to pay. Or walk a significant distance. Neither is not a easy task with three children under the age of ten. Not to mention all of our clubs had already been unloaded.

Once we got that hurdle overcome we finally got to play the par 3. Clearly the storm has affected the conditions but that alone cannot account for the poor condition of the greens and tee boxes.

In conclusion I don’t feel that the management offers much attention to those playing the par 3 and the hassle of going such a far distance to pay and then traveling back to the par 3 location to play is just not worth it.

Good condition even with so much recent rain.

First the hurricane then it has rained almost everyday since. With that in mind the fairways were very wet but played well, obviously carry was everything. Greens were slow but in great condition. Understand many courses in the area have yet to RE-Open. With the Hot Deal rate it was definitely worth it.

Good conditions

You can’t hit woods or drivers at the range and the guy in the pro shop wasn’t very helpful for a person playing there for the first time. Other than that it’s a beautiful course in great shape.

Aerated greens

1st time at this course. Greens on the course was recently aerated and the staff did not let us know before we got to the first green. Our group was given a discount for the round, but we were not informed of this until afterwards. I wasn’t aware of this or I would have picked another course to play. I’m not from Florida and I was hoping for a great experience with quality greens. Maybe next time
